2008: the year of the BOOST, apparently

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2009 is going to be a big year (see: Obama, graduation)!

HuffPost featured a bunch of new year blog entries, one of which was a post by Andy Borowitz that showcased his facebook statuses from 2008.

I thought it was a neat way to summarize the year. Here are a few, starting from Jan. 1, 2008.

Jan. 1: Paige is "election year! WAHOO"
A nice message among a sea of comments on hangovers and drinking regrets.

Jan. 11: Paige is "really named jonathan, or atleast that’s what she tells sketchballs at the club."
Some girls rely on their girlfriends to bail them out of awkward situations. I just introduce myself as Jonathan. Great advice for Iguana's in Baltimore; trust me.

Feb. 4: Paige is "avoid nothing, battle everyone."
Just some classic Paige Dearing trash-talk. Again from Iguana's, only this time about dance battles.

Feb 21: Paige is "BOOOOOOSTED. Usa today intern? YEAHHH."

March 5: Paige is "LIFE IS TOO GOOD: Chelsea, nate, savannah, ultimate."
Last spring was packed with fun. Chelsea, Nate and Joe visited for 'boost central.' Ultimate was going great and spring break playing ultimate all week in Savannah was going to be amazing, and was.

March 16: Paige is "boosted for springtime and ultimate outside. Now it just needs to come."
Syracuse winters are long.

April 7: Paige is "reserving a seat for katie’s spirit."
Katie was abroad and missed the annual Mirabeau dinner.

April 27: Paige is " let the seasons begin, take the big king down"
Beirut is fantastic and I couldn't stop listening to Elephant Gun.

May 5: Paige is "all I know is I can’t wait to see what becomes the summer08 dance."
We all know the summer07 dance was a smash.

May 13: Paige is "haruki murakami."
Fantastic author.

June 10: Paige is "bonnarooooooo."

June 18: Paige is "twilight, Elliott smith."
Great combination.

July 4: Paige is "kannst du mit dein Arsch wackeln?”
German for "Can you shake your ass?"

July 23: Paige is "nancy drew: the phantom of Venice, from USA TODAY, fo freeee."
What is summer without a little Nancy Drew action?

It will be interesting to see what 2009 has in store for me. Will this winter be as long as last year? What will I be doing in the summer? What will I be doing with my life?
