09, day one recap.

I rang in the new year with the family and spent all afternoon with a few crazy buds from high school. While it's been difficult trying to keep our friendship alive, our efforts haven't gone to waste. Every minute spent together is fun-filled. I'd hate to jinx it and I know it's unrealistic to believe in "forever", but I truly hope this friendship is one that'll last. I want these people to be in my freakin' wedding for goodness sakes! Years and years from now, of course :].

2008's taken me for a pretty wild ride:
  • 4.0 GPA for both spring semester and summer session.
  • Ingledue, Skorka, Calixto, Gill, Yim.
  • Losing AND gaining friendships.
  • Finding Word International, Los Angeles.
  • Shows, shows, and more shows makes for a very broke teen.
  • Adventures with those oh so crazy bandies.
The list goes on and on... Time flies and I feel overwhelmed thinking about all that's happened in 2008: the highs and the lows, the joy and the pain, the successes and the failures. But I'll take it all as a learning experience and move on. It doesn't really help to dwell on the past.

Some resolutions for 09:
1. Grow spiritually in my walk with God.
2. Read and write more. I have a list of books I want to read. No excuses, I know I have to build up my vocabulary.
3. Procrastinate less. Sigh, I say this every single year. =/
4. Make more of an effort to keep in touch with old friends.
5. Lose weight. Again, I say this with every passing year, but I mean it this time around. I've gained so much weight since college started, it's not even funny. This goes hand in hand with eating right & raising my self-esteem.
6. Improve on guitar and bass. Practice makes perfect!

It makes me Chuckle with Glee (cause only REAL fat people can chuckle with glee) when you resolve to lose weight. Say what you will, that shit is simply hilarious. I only have one resolution for this year:

Fall in love with my eyes open.

And don't make an ass of myself in Public anymore.

that's two, I guess, both of which I broke in a matter of minutes.
