2010 was the ‘ish

 

I’ve been too busy to update my blog, but better late than never, right?

We’re already halfway through January 2011 and I’m officially ready to let go of 2010. I’ve had some good times. 2010 was definitely one of the best years I’ve had; even out-doing 2009 which I thought was going to be unbeatable.

Most of the awesomeness brought on by 2010 was due to my hometown hosting the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. With most Canadians, especially Vancouverites, we experienced patriotism unlike anything before.

I had the best 2+ weeks of my life. Not only did I get to watch a ton of events (mostly hockey games) live, but I also had the privilege of working under contract for the Vancouver Canucks. I worked 16 shifts during the games and split my time between Canada Hockey Place (aka Rogers Arena) and UBC Thunderbird Arena. This resulted in me meeting new faces from around Canada and the world, including celebrities and athletes. I was a busy bee with my itinerary jam packed with work shifts and hang outs with friends. Like I said, best time ever.

More adventures ensued throughout the year. Of course, none of which could happen without the company of great friends. Below is just a glimpse of some random memories from last year…
