“We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.” It is strange why 2010 seems so different from the other New Years that I have experienced. It is significant, but I do not know why. It marks the start of a new decade, and some part of me deep down feels a hint of inspiration and hope in a world filled with pain, anger, hatred and sorrow. It was an average day today, and some vacation this turned out to be! I've been so busy that I'll be going back to college just to have a break! Yesterday I didn't do anything special...ran to the store, did some cleaning, made a mess in my room, went through my clothes to get rid of some for Good Will...had some in depth conversations with close friends and enjoyed the lack of chaos which I consider a normal part of my life! I have to admit, having good conversation with dear friends...reminiscing on the past and discussing the future can beat any party celebration or firework show. Even if the memories of the past are bad. My best friend and I had the best conversation earlier, talking about the "good ole days" :P yea yea I know!!!! It reminded me of a quote I once heard; "learning is the consequence of experience." That is probably the quote that defines my life! It's the reason we study history, so we aren't doomed to repeat it. My New Years resolution is to continue succeeding in my goal to become a registered nurse. I pray that the year will be easy, uneventful and free of most obstacles; however, I don't foresee *THAT* happening! I don't think life was meant to be easy, and I think when we want something extremely bad, you're always going to have hell trying to get it because it's the fight that we must endure, that strengthens us and makes us appreciate the things we want. I guess what I mean is, it's not the destination that's important, it's the journey we take to get there that is. It makes sense to me OK! Anyway, I just hope this year is better than the last! Happy New Year everybody :)

does the decade end with 2010, or 2009? the new millenium begun with 2000. so 2009 is only 9 years :P there's lots of people on both sides. just thought you'd like to know. Life is the consequence of experience too I think. Good and bad. As long as I don't have that dismembered body laying next to me dream again I'll be fine.

Happy New Year...and many, many more.
