2010 Discovery: Favorites

2010 has been a whirlwind of discoveries for me and now that it’s winding to a end I can’t help but want to churn out some lists! If you don’t know already I adore lists, I’m always scribbling some here and there. Feel free to skip this post if it’s too indulgent upon my part or too much like a Facebook post. Anyways, if you love to write I highly encourage you to write your lists in the comments above! ‘Cuz just as much I love lists, I love to read them.

Some of them are things I’ve tried and re-discovered but mostly these lists include new discoveries.

My Favorite People
I’ve come to find that despite my inclination to be independent. I am ever so grateful for all the support of my family, friends, and M. ❤ I’ll try to keep this brief because once I start I may never stop.

Shout Out: All my friends in Expo Student Ambassador Program specially my comrades in Shift B, my apartment, and my roommate!

I want to thank the Sunday Night dinner crew despite my lack of cooking, I’ve had tons of fun. I want to thank my Californian apartment mates who always keep it interesting.  I’m ever so appreciative all those who embark on fooding adventures with me. Thanks L for guest blogging, up for fun and being around. Thank V for hanging out this summer, it was a blast!

I guess after seeing millions and millions of people while working at Expo. I’ve come to realize the importance of few great friends rather than bunch of acquaintances. Finally I couldn’t have done it with the support of M! (Hopefully the blog will see more of his cooking b/c it’s delicious!)
