2006 was an interesting year; so many things happened its hard to sum it all up. To start with my resolutions for the year. I don’t think I wrote any of them down, or if I did, I can’t find them. This means that I achieved all of my resolutions during the year. I’ll write down my resolutions for 2007 once I’ve finalized them.
So, It looks like I traveled a lot during 2006. In January, I went to Nashville to visit my brother’s (at that point future) in-laws. I was there for just the weekend, so a pretty rushed trip all in all. Fly in, hang out for the weekend, and fly back out. Then March for Spring break I went halfway around the world to Korea for the ISP trip. I can’t believe how much fun I had in a one short week. I was there as part of a school trip, but the actual school stuff only lasted for a day or so, and we had the rest of the week to explore the “culture” of Korea. April, May and June were pretty quite in terms of travel. But then July more than made up for it. India for a two weeks, and then Nashville for another short weekend for a reception. Then the last trip was a short little trip out to California to interview with Google. I think this has been the most that I’ve traveled (flying-wise) in one year. A lot of fun overall though.
Beyond the traveling, 2006 was a little like a roller coaster ride; with a lot of ups and downs. Nothing to get into too much detail right now, but it was a fun year overall. I learned a lot in school (had my three favorite classes at NYU during 2006), and learned a lot personally. 2007 is going to be a great year, and I’m looking forward to it.
