Well hey there guys! It's now officially 2009! I can't believe it! Where did time go? When did I get to be so old?

So there's not a whole lot new going on with me. Fall and winter have been flying by. On December 8th I went in to Chicago for my friends 21st birthday which was fun. We went to the Shedd Aquarium and then out to a nice lunch and then we shopped a bit. But now I've been home for about two weeks for Christmas break and its been fun catching up with other old friends from home and hanging out with them and also with the fam.

And the exciting news...I leave in two days for Australia! Believe it or not, I am going on a month long bike trip across South East Australia, from Melbourne to Adelaide! I am SO pumped, yet also really nervous. I've never been overseas before let alone Australia. So we'll see how this goes. It should be the adventure of a lifetime and I'm looking forward to it!

Now off to write a paper for my trip, do laundry, and pack. What a way to start out the New Year!
