Merry Christmas, Happy New Year.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. 2007 wasn't quite the year I'd hoped it would be.
Twelve months ago, when I had just gotten back from Fiji, 2007 was looking like it was going to be the year. My friends and I felt closer, my family felt tighter, I felt I was growing and had direction and focus. Everything looked very promising.
As the new year came and went, my friends, myself included, started to hibernate, date, and fill our time separate of the others. I thought it was just that winter was settling in...it has continued. I was unemployed for most of the year, living at my parents house, feeling a bit of an imposition. And, of coarse, most recently, the loss of my best friend Rebecca Ohlson. This year, if it weren't for a few special people, things, and events, would be tossed out with the trash.
So everyday, every single fucking day, I am thankful for my dear girlfriend Emma, my brother, sister, and parents, and of coarse, my bike...heh. Yeah, my bike, I know. Anyway, I so, so, so look forward to entering 2008 with these people and things by my side.
So Merry Christmas, stay warm with your family and friends, and Happy New Year, enter it embracing the ones you love and the ones that love you and always remember the ones that have passed...
