This year.

December 31, 2008

It’s hard to believe that 2008 is over already. It seems like just yesterday I was making my 2008 new years resolutions. I can honestly say it’s been one of the best years of my life. The beginning was kinda shaky, but like everyone does I fought through, lost some friends but made other relationships stronger. I got 2 amazing roommates in a beautiful apartment. I celebrated my 21st birthday, twice, with my amazing family and friends. I witnessed two beautiful weddings and the power of love. I got reacquainted with an old friend. I started my senior year at Pepperdine, I started this blog ☺ I grew up a lot, I fell down more and yet I learned more about myself then I thought possible. I found my strengths and tried to understand my weaknesses a little more. I cried, but I laughed more.

One thing, I’m not going to do this year is make resolutions. That sounds super pessimistic and debby downerish, but my thoughts on resolutions is that, when you think of it as a resolution it allows you to break it, because most resolutions are. So, this year I’m going to set goals, because goals can’t ever been broken, they can change and modify and grow, but they can never break.

At the beginning of 2008 I was so scared of growing up, and moving on and the inevitable change I knew was coming, but after seeing the wonders of 2008, I’m even more excited to venture into 2009. It’s time for graduation, more birthdays, more relationships & much more life. So here’s to more growing, more moving and more changing and the hope of the new year.

Happy new years, may all your goals come true.
