Starting the year off that way is a good sign. 2008 was hands down amazing...I met so many new people, so many fun, cool, exciting people, and I can only hope that this year will be as equally entertaining (and I have no reason to think it shouldn't be).
If nothing else, this year will be interesting because I'll finally have some concrete direction in my life: I'll either get into pharmacy school and go there, or I'll be denied admittance and change my major to something having to do with chemistry and botany and preserving the natural environment. Either way, I'm stoked. Weeee!
New year's resolution: learn Russian (to assist and encourage future travels).
You know, I never thought it was such a beautiful language, but hearing myself attempt the few words that I have, well, I love the sound of it.
