Happy New Year!

I hope yours started off with something else than a massive headache and a deathwish. The party was great, but somehow I don't feel so good the day after. First we had a gorgeous slow dinner at my sister's house, and then I ran to Rene's bar to kiss him at the stroke of midnight. It was really slippery out there, and I almost didn't make it, but I did! (Oh the drama, it was like in the movies.) Soon some of our friends joined us in the cuban fiesta! The house was packed. Rene had to work, but we partied on his behalf!

Last night was wonderful, but I forgot one thing. OK, two things. My camera, and the fact that I should always take the picture BEFORE I start looking totally gross. These are seriously the best (and only) clips from last night. I'm sorry.

Laundry of the night: top - Mexico, crown - Mexico, bracelet - from a Christmas decoration kit from Ikea, skirt (later in the pics) - vintage

So mysterious.

Highlights for me in 2009 (in sort of chronological order)

*I visited Mexico, Cologne, Sweden, Riga, Potsdam and France.
*I had a conversation with my father-in-law in Spanish about the Finnish history and politics
*My hair got bleached whiter than ever possible (with Mexican hydrogen peroxide)
*I moved to the city of my dreams
*little moments, Berlin, friends, visitors, home, games, more friends. Seizing the day big time!
*My baby and me got engaged!
*I got a job in Germany (albeit a pretty stupid job most people wouldn't be proud of)
*I quit 2 jobs and was happier quitting them than getting them
*I was unemployed for quite some time, still kinda am with just small writing jobs, but holdin' on
*I had a bake sale in the park
*My best friend had her first child and it looks like the mini version of her
*I got to know amazing new people
*I wore funny costumes and got thrown out of the only night club in my home town
*really enjoyed the summer with my loved ones in Finland and Sweden
*I got a tattoo (that everyone thinks is temporary)
*I didn't see my friends in Finland as often as I'd wished to, but the times I did, were incredibly good and full of crazy fun.

I'll try to make a little photo compilation of last year. But this is it so far.

I'd love to hear from your new year's eve and what you'll remember from 2009. Also, would be great to know if anyone else is feeling shittier than me today. Kisses!

Happy Nu Year!

Great post, Ms. Spacey! I feel you. Looking at that list one realises that you've been through more shit in 12 months than most people would dare to explore in 5 years. You'd better keep yourself busy if you wish to make this one half as eventful. I know you will!:)

Hugs!
