Hello, I hope that everyone's 2012 is off to a good start! I saw a list of all the places my friend, Mia, went in 2011 in her fantastic blog. I always find it amusing how much more accomplished I feel after making a list. They are a great way to get organized and actually think about what you've done. Here is my list from 2011, a pretty incredible year.
The greater Burlington area, VT
Santiago de Compostela, Spain (where I visited my friend in March)
Cape Cod, MA
Plattsburgh and the Adirondacks, NY
Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island, ME
Nashua, NH. (Hey Mitt!)
Lake Placid, NY
Long Island, NY
This list is a reflection of the memories I have made this year with the help of wonderful people. Going to an AIDS conference at Harvard, traveling to Europe, protesting in D.C., researching in Ecuador, 4th of July festivities on the Cape, a trip to Acadia, and the Republican Debate at Dartmoth have all been highly rewarding experiences. I feel so very fortunate and I encourage everyone to make 2011 lists. I will leave you with this, a picture I took today on a walk with my dad through the woods.
