As the year draws to a close, I guess that I feel sort of sad. This is the last year of being a child. I'll be 18 next year, an adult. Damn. Graduation is next year. A car is next year. Who knows what else is next year, but this year hasn't been so bad. I've done a lot more than I thought I could, and a lot less than I should've. I guess what I treasure most is the times with my friends. 2005 to me has been a year of discovery, of change, of instability, of growing. I thank everyone who helped me get through the year. Goodbye 17th year.
