2008 didn’t really go exactly as planned.  It could have been better; it can always be better.  But in the grand scheme of things, it was still fairly productive. I hadn’t planned to dedicate at least a month to kidney stones, which set me back quite a bit…both in time and in money.  I had hoped to pay off all of my debt.  I wanted to travel to more places…a big trip at least every other month.  I wanted to attend at least one istockalypse and meet some of my closest istock friends who I haven’t met yet and are scattered around the globe.  I wanted to become more organized.  I wanted to set up some kind of photo studio again somewhere.  Maybe have a full exhibit of my work someplace.

The last couple months of 2008 really sucked.  I couldn’t wait for the new year to show its face.  Granted we’re only 5 days into the new year, but it’s off to a good start.  I’ve been making small steps to achieve some the things that I wanted to do last year and creating additional goals for this year.

Anyway, here’s a list of some of the most memorable things that have happened for me in 2008.  Most link to related photos that were posted on my blog.
