This past year has been challenging but fruitful.
I accomplished many things that I set out to do, which is fairly uncharacteristic for me. I graduated from college, quit smoking, took up photography, started a band, and made friendships that have the potential of lasting a while.
I know how I work so I won't be making any new year's resolutions. I will, however, hope that more good things are around the corner.
I hope you all have a new year that brings with it good health and good fortune.

I'm really happy that another 3 day weekend is at my doorstep. :)
I'm also really happy that stars are visible in Portland tonight. :D
I'm sad that I couldn't really get anything in focus. :(
I'm also sad because it's so cold out. D:

I've spent about six hours working on the book in the last couple days. I didn't realize that when I set out to do a photography book that it would be so much work. I will publish it April 15th, 2011. That will be a day after the final day in the year of photos. It will basically be the blog in book form.

We went to see The Nutcracker tonight. My interpretation of the storyline is as follows:
1) Christmas Party!
2) Creepy old wizard guy laces nuts with acid.
3) Little girl trips the f*ck out.
4) They sail away on a boat.
Also, ballet dancers' toes must look like this:

I think I learned something about Shannon tonight. I was thinking about her love of Christmas trees and then it occurred to me: She secretly wants to be one. So, being the good husband that I am, I decided to help enable her to achieve her goals.
I made her wrap herself in Christmas lights.
Sometimes I surprise myself with the amount of good husband-ness I have in me.

We did our first pub quiz tonight [when I say "we," I mean Shannon and myself...not the royal we (Matt can't stand it when people to that)]. It was a crappy "theme" but our team did well nonetheless.
I want to do another one and I want to WIN.

Shannon and I went to The National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother tonight. There was a choir and lots of lights!
I am having trouble deciding which photo to post so I'm posting them all. Take that!
