Where Did The Year Go? – 2009 In Review

Advent Calendar by paperladyinvites on FlickrIt’s already that time of the year again…the end of it.  It’s amazing how quickly time flies by.  I remember when I was younger, someone once told me,

“When you are young, your years seem to last longer and you can’t wait to grow up.  As you get older, your years fly by and you start dragging your feet to slow them down.”

Well, I’m not quite dragging my feet yet, but it really is amazing how quickly the years go by these days.

Okay, enough rambling, what happened this year?  Well, for starters, I’ve been much less active online (on FriendFeed, Twitter, Flickr, etc.) as well as less active in my personal photography.  Why?  In January, I was swiftly promoted at work to Technology Manager.  From there, my workload quadrupled almost instantaneously and my social life, online life, and photography life all took a decent hit.  Over the past year, I’ve managed to control my workload and delegate properly.  It’s been a rough year for the economy, the company I work for included, but we are still alive and kicking strong!

At the beginning of the year, I started the 52 Weeks: My Surrounding Neighborhoods project.  I was quite impressed with some of the other people that joined in with me and stuck with it.  Unfortunately, I only made it to Week 8 of the project.  In February, I managed to get published in Special Events Magazine, and at the end of March, I was asked to display some of my photos at Papyrus.  Then, in April, one of my images was used as an advertisement on BART.  Come July, I made a claim I’d offer some of my prints for sale, however, that plan has yet to come to fruition.  I’m making it a goal for 2010.

In all, it was a good year for my photography, but I seemed to have neglected some personal projects.  For 2010, I am hoping to continue to find the perfect balance, posting to this blog, continuing to check-in with Twitter, FriendFeed, Facebook, and Flickr, get out with my camera more on a personal level, all while thriving and improving upon myself at work, with my photography and in my social life.

Have a happy and safe New Year and I’ll see you in 2010!

Till next time…
