2009: Pretty damn good

Amazingly self-indulgent post right here, but I realised something tonight: 2009 has been AWESOME so far.  At least, it has been for me.  Less than 30 days in, and already I’ve:

  • visited, hiked along, took 288 photographs of, and ate the world’s best Gong Bao Ji Ding at, the Great Wall of China.  Once in a lifetime, without a doubt.
  • finally fulfilled my longstanding dream to see the Terracotta army
  • had dinner at Cafe Sydney, which was amazing
  • been to see Neil Young with my Dad and my brothers… We’ve got matching t-shirts to prove it
  • been to see Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova in concert, one of the best I’ve ever attended
  • made a really nice cake (if I do say so myself)
  • succesfully moved my blog
  • read four great books
  • been treated to a new Ezra Klein Bloggingheads.tv episode
  • discovered the awesome Frightened Rabbit CD
  • cooked my very own Gong Bao Ji Ding AND found Szechwan peppercorns at the local supermarket for next time
  • attended an awesome Belles Will Ring show at the Wharf theatre
  • secured tickets to three different symphony performances through the year through their awesome $30 under 30 deal
  • been accepted to do a Masters at the University of Sydney
    AND,
  • Witnessed the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States.

What a truly amazing month.  And it STILL HAS TWO DAYS TO GO!!
