2009 Wrapped Up

My Christmas decorations linger.

Maybe ’cause I like to savor the holidays.  The music, the weather, the ol’ Christmas spirit… maybe I like to revel in it all just a bit longer.

Or maybe I’m just a bit lazy.

But. It’s probably some kinda combination of both.

Some people are awesome. They get their decorations up early, and back down again within a reasonable amount of time.

Probably the same impressive people as update their blog regularly.

I am not one of those people.


2009 wrapped up fast, and before I had time to say “Happy New Year!” … well, y’know.

Fall semester highlights:

John Stossel spoke at Emory!

He’s a great speaker, and I scored a signed copy of one of his books. I’ll read it… eventually.

Pres. Jimmy Carter came, too, to talk about creativity.

“You gotta have a dream… and confidence in yourself that you will succeed.”

Pretty good advice!

One of the great things about college is all the cool lectures and guest speakers.  And whether or not we agree about different issues, it always awesome to see these famous people up close.

New semester, new year, new decade. Can’t wait to see what happens.
