2009: A Year In (Photo) Review...

2009 was full of ups and downs in pop culture. There were some great achievements, such as the premieres of GLEE and Modern Family; some lackluster performances, like disappointing new albums from Eminem and Mariah Carey; and there were some complete flops...ala The Beautiful Life, which barely made it on air to begin with. However, the year was full of ups and downs in my personal life, too, and that is what this photo blog is all about. The following shots will showcase the high and low points of my year-- both in pop culture and at home.
