My life in 2008
In 2008 I went to Hawaii (Maui & Kauai), Aspen, NYC, the Outer Banks, Virginia Beach, Costa Rica, San Francisco, the rest of the cali coastal towns south from san fran to Santa Barbara to San diego. So I must say it was an incredible year. I also had some bad luck - meningitis took me down for a while (including my 30th bday on my death bed), kidney stone's are the worst, I got laid off (bad luck or good luck?), lost a grandparent. But this year I've surfed all over, had incredible days in the water from Ventura point to Jalama to steamer lane to san francisco to trestles to San diego to Maui to Kauai to Costa Rica & locally in Huntington. I love surfing, it's the only sport that when it's good & all the elements come together it can make me giggle. I went to so many great shows this year- Erykah Badu, Citizen Cope, Damon Aaron, common, Alice Russell, Little Dragon, G love, Ooklah the Moc, Katchafire, UB40, Barington Levy, Beres Hammond, Quantic & some others that I can't think of right now. I have really enjoyed what California has to offer & been so fortunate to have my friends & be able to do what I have done. My life always seems to be like this, I have the best fortune ever & then I have the worst. I spent some good quality time with my nieces & nephews this year, my family & friends over good food & drinks and lots of laughs. Overall 2008 was a great year and I'm always appreciative of my life but now I'm really excited where this new endeavor in 2009 takes me.
