Since 2008 was the first full year of The Book Guardian, I thought this meme from Chosha would be fun.
The rules for the meme: Take the first line from the first post of every month for the last year, and post them together as a kind of cross-section of what you were blogging about during the year. Remember to link to all the posts you are excerpting.
January - What an amazing trip! J'adore Paris!
Bragging about my trip to Paris. Man that was a good trip.
February - I almost posted this morning about why I'm so affected by the January blahs.
Then I remembered it was February, and February = happy times.
March - I've been singing all my life.
Oddly enough, a post about my life as a drummer.
April - I thought I'd never been to Florida before, and upon my arrival in Orlando, I remarked this to my mother.
I went to Florida, but didn't sleep in a dresser drawer. This time.
May - When I read a book, I always picture the action, the people, the settings, etc.
A discussion post that no one responded. Alas.
June - I apologize in retrospect for my recent silence and boring-ness.
Another post about yet another trip. This time to Utah. With tornadoes.
July - I feel like I'm singing constantly.
This one actually is about me singing. Sort of.
August - A little meme from Eilonwy.
Avoiding working on my term project.
September - I'm a planner.
Evidence that I am a Type A personality.
October - Nancy posted a blog that challenges the blogger (that would be me) to disclose 6 "unspectacular" quirks about yourself.
The hardest part of this post was finding a title.
November - My favorite, well, only, Australian reader, Chosha, suggested the song I will be pulling this month's blog titles from.
Hey! Chosha wins the most mentions in this post! And I post some good news.
December - I survived the trip home.
Yet another post about yet another trip. New York. And I don't like certain Christmas songs.
So that's 2008 in a nutshell. Music and travel. And a couple other things. I feel pretty good about it.
