Out with the old decade, in with the new.  
As this year comes to a close and a new one is about to begin, it shouldn't really have much significance aside from turning another page on the calendar, right? In reality, it's not that big of a deal, but I don't know why I'm having such a hard time letting go of this year, but most importantly, this decade.

The decade flew by so fast... I can hardly believe that ten years ago tonight I was with friends running around like idiots in the streets with sparklers when the clock struck twelve because we all thought the world was going to end because of the new millennium. Ten years ago, I was just starting high school, or at least half way through my freshman year, and it honestly doesn't feel like it was that long ago. I laughed when my parents would say that high school and college would go by fast, but now I'm laughing just because it really did.

I don't really know what the point of this entry is about... I guess it's just thoughts that I've had rattling around in my brain when I've thought about this New Year in general. This decade contained so many people and events that made me who I am today, I guess I'm just afraid that with it gone, I'm going to lose more of it than I already have. Even though I was born in the eighties and most of my childhood was in the nineties, I grew up in this decade. I experienced high school, the many ups and downs that came with it... concerts, parties, drugs, depression, and the "fuck the world" attitude. I experienced my first heartache, my first love, my first time away from home... everything that comes with growing up. Again, no real point in this entry aside from saying in my roundabout way that I miss some aspects, and I stress some, of high school and that I'm afraid that the more time passes, the more I'm going to forget about it.

As one of my resolutions this year (funny, I know, 'cause they're rarely kept), I AM going to try to write in here more, or write in general... but most importantly I'm not going to forget the decade that made me who I am.

Happy New Year, everyone.
