Dec 9 & 10

December 9 Challenge. Something that really made you grow this year. That made you go to your edge and then some. What made it the best challenge of the year for you?
I had a few really big challenges this year.
1. Graduating from college. I guess it wasn't just in 2009 but everything I worked for for the last 4 years was summed up this August when I finally graduated. It was a lot of work, especially my final fibers project. There were several times that I wanted to give up and not return the next semester but I stuck it out and finished and I feel really accomplished. I LOVE filling out job applications and not having to say "some college" anymore.
2. Going from having a life and going to college to moving to Huntsville and feeling like I have nothing to do with myself. It was really difficult for me the first several weeks out of school because I really felt aimless. I didn't have any friends here and no where to go. I rarely changed out of my pajama's. I had a few meltdowns but it's turning around now. I met some wonderful people at the Flying Monkey and established myself shopping the Free People dept at Belk enough to be offered a job. I also start teaching art classes in January!
3. Planning my wedding was a really hard thing to do since I had no previous experience. There were many bumps along the way but all in all, I think it went off splendidly.
4. Getting a job. I finally was happy with not having anything to do or anywhere to go and I got a job. My interview was 1 day after we got back from Amsterdam and I started that Friday (Black Friday). I went from nothing to working 10.5 hours my first day then another 10 my second. Since then I've only had 3 days off. This has been something really hard for me to get back into, I liked being free!
December 10 Album of the year. What's rocking your world?
Ok, so my favorite album this year is She & Him Volume 1. I know it didn't come out this year but I have been so loving it lately! One that did come out this year and the only album I bought was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. LOVE! My favorite song is When Harry Kisses Ginny. LOVE!!!!!
