It's hard to believe that a new decade will be upon us in a few hours. I expect 2010 to bring lots of excitement to the vida loca of KR: college graduation, my first real job, [maybe] my first apartment... 2009 -- and the first decade of the third millennium overall -- was filled with lots of noteworthy events. Let's discuss five of the best things that happened between Y2K and today!

1. Rock of Love, Rock of Love 2, Rock of Love Bus, The Real Housewives [of New Jersey...], Project Runway, Real World/Road Rules Challenges, Jersey Shore... The reality TV of the '00s revolutionized my viewing habits. Call me a junkie all you want -- it's an addition that causes no harm but the occasional killed brain cell by way of dumb blonds who vye for the love of a has-been rocker and Jersey girls whose over-use of hairspray can be smelled through the TV. And I love every second of it.

2. Stonehill became my second home. Purple became a way of life. My friends became my family.

3. European excursions turned me into a complete travel bug. The world is quite different on that side of the pond, but even more surprisingly, I was different person, as well: black was a wardrobe staple of mine. London wasn't ready for pink. Luckily, I was there a mere three months. I wore pink on my flight home.

4. Tights became trendy again. They do wonders for a winter wardrobe. I bow down at them. Really. I do.

5. My 200th blog post. Voila!
