Looking back on 2010, it’s been a crazy ride. A year of massive changes in all aspects of my life, from work, dating, friends, and location, roller-coastering is a mild way of describing it.
January: Move to NYC, received and accepted my invitation to the 152nd A-100 class.

March: Meet up with friends in NY for the last time in a while, learned to snowboard properly; Move back to DC for A-100!
April: Complete A-100, first post is Seoul, Korea.
May: POL/ECON training
June: Pack out, good-byes to friends and family; arrive in Seoul on June 24.
July: 2+2, get to meet Secretary Clinton,
August: Another year older…
September: Chuseok, Typhoons and Conferences
November: G-20, Yeonpyong Island, Marine Ball, St. Andrews Ball, Thanksgiving feast for 25
December: Eating across Asia with friends; Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore; military exercises off the western coast of South Korea. Holidays with friends old and new; ringing in the New Year with new friends, very grateful for the year that had just wrapped up.
