A New Year

It's 2006. Another year. Each year it seems to get a little easier to accept that another year has come. Why is that? Maybe as you get older, life kind of comes in larger increments. When you're younger, each year is a big part of your life. As time goes on, life works in spaces of five years. Or maybe it goes by two or three instead of five, and eventually works up to five. Maybe I'm just full of it. Usually on New Year's, I evaluate my relationship with God over the whole year. Last year was a serious turning point. This year, I didn't feel like I really needed to do that. It's possible that I was fooling myself. However, I knew there were a couple of things I needed to work on. I think this year I'm planning on working on one fault at a time. Last year, my attitude was my problem. Attitude is not my problem this year. It's mainly smaller stuff. I've decided that God will show me what my most serious weaknesses are as they come along. Maybe He's been doing that all along. He probably has, I've just been too blind to see it. That happens quite often.

I know I need to keep in touch better with my friends....and family. I did a horrible job of that last semester. I'm not sure what my problem was, but I am going to fix it. I was busy; however, there is no excuse for not keeping in touch with the people I love the most.

On a completely different note, I'M GOING TO IDAHO IN A WEEK!!!! That's so exciting. I've missed Amy so much. I also love traveling, and I've never been to Idaho. It's going to be so much fun. Megan's going to be there as well. Tickets to Idaho: $315. Snowboarding, ice skating, hopefully sledding: Around $100 (roughly). Simply hanging out with a couple of my most awesome friends: Priceless.
