2008.

I do not do New Year’s resolutions.  I figure if I need to resolve to change something, it shouldn’t have to wait until a new year begins.  Instead I give myself a theme to somewhat motivate myself throughout the year.  It’s easier that way.

2005 was a year of “Change”.  I came back home to go to the community college.  I was single after 2 years of being in a relationship.  I had to change and adapt to a lot of things.  I went to Rome and Germany, and after that trip my perspective of the world changed.  I was no longer seeing the world from a small-town girl.  I moved into an apartment for the first time, and my friendships changed.  I went on NFK 87, where everything changed.

2006 was a year of “Connections”.  I connected with people that I had met on NFK 87, I reconnected with myself, and most importantly I made a real connection with God.  Unfortunately, I fell out of contact with my very own roommate, which was a painful realization that I was growing up and apart from my high school self.

2007 was the year I decided to “Take Charge”.   I tried to stop procrastinating so much.  I even deleted my Facebook account for quite a while.  I worked my butt off during the Spring semester because I refused to settle for average grades.  It paid off, with scholarships and an internship.  I had a lot of responsibilities with the internship, which hopefully will help me out in the future.  But in 2007 I also had to learn how to let go.  I let my guard down and allowed love to enter into my life.  It was painful and joyful all at the same time.  I am not quite sure how that works, but it was good.

2008.  It is still a mystery to me.  I have been trying to come up with something to challenge myself throughout the year, but so far I have no idea.  Just like I have no idea what I’m doing after graduation.  So, my dear readers, I will have to come back to you in a few days.  Wish me luck.
