In less than 30 days from now, my nineteenth birthday will be here. My last age with -teen at the end. Less than a month after that will mark the one-year anniversary of this blog. It doesn’t even feel like it’s been that long.

Special things have happened this past year, but my birthday marks more than a year. It signifies I’ve made it through another year. Every year, I imagine how I’ll never make it to the next year. I don’t look forward to it. I only imagine how terrible it will be and I tend to be right. Something awful happens. Usually, it’s more bad things than good. One can tell by my Good Things InĀ 2013 list that most “good” things are actually pretty boring. Hopefully, that will change for a while in the summer, but that’s still a long time away.

Still, it’s another year closer to my own independence. Not to mention the gap year I’ve planned, which means one whole year of no school! Woo! Maybe I’ll get better at blogging this year. Who knows?
