Reflections  

OK, so there are a few hours left before the end of the year and I wanted to reflect on 2007. 

--I got a new job so that was awesome.  A good job, with good people and a bright future. 
--Got rid of some friends, which was hard, fought with friends I loved, which was almost harder, and made some new friends, which rocked.
--got DSL.....welcome to the 21st century.
--bought nice things for myself, all rather small but just enough to brighten my day and thats all that matters.
--wrote 165 pieces of fic, all of which I am immensely proud, especially the ones I stepped out of the box for.
--had someone I love very much reach out to me.
--told my father I loved him.
--started to take better care of myself.

And now onto the resolutions.  I want to keep them, I want to make a new life for myself and not just treat them as something I have to bear with.
--quit smoking, lose weight, eat better, exercise more, relax more, say what I feel, socialize more, send stories out for consideration, keep my room clean, save money......that's all I can think of right now and that is quite enough thank you.

It's been so cool being on LJ and meeting all of you, and being friended and friending other people.  Some of you guys crack me up, make me think, lift me up, cause me to reflect....all the good things people should do for other people so even as I look to expand my community, all of you rock my socks.

I dont know what 2008 is going to bring me.  I look forward to it and I hope its good but I know that I have to do my part too, it wont just fall into my lap (though that would be awesome).  It's a 50-50 type gig and I'm willing to pull my weight.

And in conclusion, special amounts of love to vegawriters and ginnylsw for too many things to name here.  Vega was already a friend and Ginny is definitely one now.  I hope I can meet more people like you two as I go through this crazy journey called life.

Let's hope this year, you and I stay off the "fights" list.

Luv you!

You are so sweet, thank you very much.

It's been a real treat being able to freely share my crazy life with someone who really understands.

Happy New Year!!

You're totally welcome. Ditto to everything you said. Isn't it great when someone just gets it, no matter how insane it sounds coming out of your mouth?

And plenty of insane things have come out of my mouth in the last few months. Thanks for not pointing out just how crazy I am at times.

Gin, if I did that to you I would have to say how crazy I am and that is soooooo not gonna happen.
