Apparently summing up the past year is a must since I’ve seen it happening on practically every blog I’ve clicked on in the past few days, so I might as well go ahead and jump on the year recap wagon. Basically to sum up the past year:
>I turned 21. 🙂
>I had the sweetest internship ever (working with dead bodies at a coroner’s office) while also working two other jobs.
>I started my senior year of college and am right now preparing my final semester.
> I decided the Navy was the way to go for me and took and successfully passed the ASTB naval officer training test.
> I applied for a scholarship to Russia.
> I signed up to run a marathon.
> I toured the FBI academy in Quantico VA and attended the SPY MUSEUM.
> I kept all scheduled Road Trips to visit my friends
> I liked a boy and found out he was a huge asshole. Go figure.
> I saw the stocks drop crazily and realized this might just be the worst time to graduate from college and start job searching.
> I decided that my profession would come before any relationship for at least the next 12 years give or take a few.
> The Dark Knight and Valkrie were two of the best movies to come out of 2008.
Now mind you this is just a recap. Many more magical moments happened and low points occurred during 2008. As a very optimistic person no low blows were included because positive is better.
What I don’t understand is that every year people make New Year’s Resolutions that they will never keep. Why is that? I’ve never actually made a New Year’s Resolution. Just because its the beginning of a new year doesn’t mean too much, just that your starting a New Year. Go figure. I’ve never seen it as starting fresh. Maybe in the future I will disagree because I mean I might need a reason to begin again but as for now its all the same.
