During the Holiday Season of 2006, I realized it was the first one where I was in some sort of a household, apart from the one my parents created. It was my 5th year of college (I was in a 5 year professional program, the 5th year was a requirement not a choice) and I was living in an apartment off-campus with one of my best friends, Zach. the holiday season had come upon us and I was feeling the good cheer. Though I was still preoccupied with finals and papers, I managed to stay in the season.
It was the first time I bought and decorated a (fake) Christmas Tree for a place I lived in. It came out so well!
As Christmas neared, I realized that people were sending Christmas cards left, right, and center. Since Zach and I were technically out in the world on our own, I decided that we too should have a Christmas card to send out. So, with my fabulous Photoshop-ing skills, I modified a picture my roomie and I took that Halloween (we were Turk and J.D. from Scrubs), found a cheezy lookinng background somewhere on the internets, and tossed on some text.
The card was so much fun to make and it was received so warmly, I decided that I should do one every year. This was just the first, but I've yet to do my best.
07-08 and 08-09 retrospectives are still coming, building up to the unveiling of this year's card!
