in 2011...

+ I went to my graduating class' T-Ring Ceremony. It was one of the best nights of the year. 

+ I baked my first cake. I may have used a mix, it may have meant a midnight trip to Sobeys, and it might not have looked the best, but it was the thought that counted. And it tasted good!

+ I celebrated the second anniversary of a beautiful friendship. 

+ I was one of six amazing Residence Coordinators. We were a great team!

+ I moved into a house and began to cook for myself on a regular basis. My specialties: pasta and stir-fry.

+ I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (and was accepted into the Education Programme of my dreams).

+ I visited the Hopewell Rocks for the first time ever.

+ I gave and received the most thoughtful gifts. 

+ I laughed and cried. A lot. 

+ I fell in love with going to the beach. 

+ I went on a road trip to Vermont

+ I made a new friend; his name is Jerry.

+ I ordered my first drink in the U.S.

+ I ate the best meal ever. (And enjoyed my first drink in the U.S.)

+ I swam in Lake Champlain. 

+ I went on a boat for the second time. 

+ I started this blog because I know that life is a special occasion and should be celebrated. 

+ I danced in my living room. 

+ I visited my grandparents as often as possible. 

+ I partook in Sunday Suppers. I even cooked a ham!

+ I turned 22

+ I taught a kindergarten class.

And so much more. 

2011 had its ups and downs (as every year does) but overall, I think it was pretty fantastic.
