It's 2009.

I turned 24 ten days ago. Here I am in the middle of a cold, snowy winter, about to enter my 18th month at Cherry Lane. Everyone I know that doesn't travel by underground public transportation is home under blankets right now.

I'm at work, chugging a Diet Dr. Pepper, trying to plan a trip to Vermont in February and a trip to Africa in August.

I mean...I'm at work, working.

You might think that you deserve about a years worth of updates, and I might agree with you a little, so here are a few things:

People ask me all the time if I see celebrities. I do on occasion. In recent memory I've seen Robert Downey Jr., Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Mary Kate Olsen, and I saw this guy (whom I recognized from The Lake at Borders on Monday.

I like New York, but not just for the reasons I thought I would (my sweeping day dreams of "culture" and "history" and "walking"). I like it for the people: my work friends, my church friends, and all these guys.

I took the dance class.

I joined a choir (and I quit a choir, but maybe not indefinitely).

I still play volleyball and softball with the work team.

I've had things to eat and drink that I never knew existed.

I stopped watching so much TV (not out of any desire for change, more out of necessity). I'd also rather watch Discovery or History than MTV or VH1.

I'm boring myself a little bit. Blogging random stories is so much better than trying to fit a few months into a few words. So I'll try to just stick with that.

I will say that I think this is going to be an exciting year for me with lots of adventures and maybe a few changes. So stay tuned...and I'll do my best to keep you updated when I deem it important enough. Otherwise I'll just update my status on Facebook or something.
