I'm so glad that I got to spend this winter break at home. Last year, we went up to Maryland and stayed there longer than we should have. We made up for that by staying home this year. Did a lot of driving. Did a lot of cleaning. And did a lot of song writing. Usually around this time of the year, I'd be thinking of a particular person that I would like to kiss at midnight. But no one is on my mind this year. And I'm okay with that. Because in 2010, I'm going to start fresh. I'm not going to fall back to people that I have a past with. Brand new everything.
Here's my last post for 2009.
I want to thank all of you readers. Followers and those who just stumble upon it. You have made this year amazing with your words and constant support. There isn't anything more I could ask from you guys. So thank you thank you thank you thank you again! Never ever ever stop being as rad as you already are!
This is what 2009 was to me...
I hate to admit it, but most of this year was defined by a boy. A boy who broke my heart and walked away. But because of that, I've learned so much about myself, love, life, and the world we live in. And I'm not done learning. And in the end, I'm happy. And that's all that matters.
Just a few pieces of advice/blurbs/random thoughts that need to be said before this year is through...
-When teachers say to look for colleges in freshman year and you think it's too early, it's never too early. Seriously. Start looking.

See you all in 2010!!
