Another year has passed, and with its passing I’ve thought much on how my outlook on life has changed. No longer a mere observer, I’ve taken to performing actions that solidify my place in the world, allowibg me to look back and know I am not just a ghost.
With the completion of two history courses (General Education required by my university) I’ve obtained a love for history (esp. Roman history - Kingdom, Republic, and Empire) that I never knew I had. The parallels with more modern history are astoundingly abundant, and would be rather terrifying were it not so fascinating.
I fell in love with a beauteous girl from my homeland - my best friend. Yet this did not hold up against the test of distance and time, and I then learned the bitterness of heartbreak. Still, that experience has changed me irrevocably, for I know now that I am capable of such love, and that it’s truly magnificent. Thus instead of sitting idly by, I will take up the challenge and search for another who might bolster my being.
My commitment to emotional honesty and expression was tried and remained true, and I hope this continues.
I’m considering a commitment to a photo a day coupled with some thoughts for the day (either related to the picture or not), similar in theory to my sister’s Tumblr, http://www.infjdoodles.tumblr.com.
Happy New Year everyone! Let’s make it a good one.
(Oh and I’m visiting Hawaii right now, to explain the photos following this.)
