2010 January to June
In January I was taking Accutane and stayed in listening to records and reading books, but also finally bought a Canon Rebel xSi and started taking pictures everyday.Homemade Valentines for my friends with lots of sparkles and delicious tea.My mom and I went to a Jane Austen exhibit at the Morgan Library for my birthday.We had a small party at my house with my grandparents. This was the most perfect cake ever.I hung out by the ocean even when it was cold.There was a hurricane the night of my birthday party and we lost the electricity. We had drinks by candlelight on a stormy evening.I visited Penn State where I went to college and got in all kinds of trouble with my friends there for a PSU drinking holiday called "State Pattie's Day". Green beer in green cups for the real St. Patrick's day at AJ's apartment a few weeks later.In April my mom hosted a soup and bread party at our house. She provides the soup and everyone comes with wine and bread to share.I found my old drawings from high school. How did I manage to get into college when all I did was draw all day?There was a Bunny Show at Old Bethpage Restoration Village and got to pet the bunnies and walk old houses.Just as the flowers were blooming I took a trip to Old Westbury Botanical Gardens.Lindsay and I tried to go to the Cherry Blossom Festival at Brooklyn Botanical Garden on May 1st, but we ended up driving around in traffic all day. Finally we just went to the beach.I ate lots of delicious breakfasts and read a lot, and decided to quit my job that I hated (but there are no photos) and finally began to pursue my career with the enthusiasm I had been lacking. Then I took a small vacation from blogging to have a million adventures in Brooklyn and Maryland, meet new friends, see new things. When I came back to the blog world I had finally gotten the job I'd been hoping for and my whole world changed.
