I already tweeted/Google +’ed/Facebooked but I thought I’d give a proper greeting on my blog, so…
Happy New Year!!
I came back to NYC from San Diego early on December 21st, for ONE LAST TIME. During this trip, I have to pack EVERYTHING and leave for New York for real. After we spent our Christmas packing, we went up to Boston to see Derek’s sisters’ family.
His oldest sister has a 3 year old son and 5 month old daughter. And his older sister has 3 and 4 year old girls. They are all super ADORABLE. We couldn’t stay there for too long but they seemed to love our lego Christmas gifts. We got his older sister’s daughters “Creationary“ It’s like Pictionary with Legos. We had so much fun playing it that we’re getting it for ourselves when we move to SD. Seriously, the game isn’t just for kids, we were totally getting into it!
As we were leaving to catch a bus back to NYC, the 4 year old came running and gave us a drawing.
We watched some Laputa the night before and I had drawn a robot on some paper at her drawing table. And she was able to draw this from my drawing! We were so surprised how intricate her drawing was. We’re definitely going to frame this and display it in our new place.
Christine, my co-worker from the Behemoth, was staying at my place for her trip to NYC. We were busy packing so we couldn’t really take her out anywhere but we all went to our friends’ New Year’s Party on the 31st. And on the 1st we spend some peaceful time, packing.
Well, aside from packing, we’ve been also trying to eat out at our favorite places & new places in NYC before we leave. We aren’t stressed out about the move and we’re actually having a lot of fun. But we still can’t help being sad to think that it was our last Christmas, last New Year’s Eve and last New Year in NYC…
Okay, okay. I’m making it sound like we’ll never come back to NYC but we’re actually going to Boston in April to attend PAX East and I’m sure we’ll visit NYC afterwards, but it’s won’t be the same as as living here.
Anyway! 2011 was definitely an amazing year for me. I was given a dream job and a life-changing opportunity. I have no idea what will happen in San Diego in 2012, but I’m sure this year will be even more awesome than the last year.
I don’t know what my New Year’s resolution is though. I always fail to keep my New Year’s resolution and feel guilty about it, so I’m going to make it something like “doing a lot of stuff and have fun doing it.”
Yeah, that sounds good, right?
