19.....

Oh my goody goodness.
Today, January 4th.
I'm one year older, from 18 to 19.
*faints*

It's crazy! I never imagined myself as a "19 year old"
those were considered "boring college people" when I was younger.
now I am in their shoes. and I have to say... it's not boring, horrible, sad, depressing, or anything like that. Who says 19 is old? I mean, REALLY. I'm certainly not throwing myself into the "got to act all grownup and serious and complain constantly about how OLD I am.." group. no way. nope, not gonna happen. Sorry folks, it would be absolute torture and completely unprofitable.
heh heh. besides, I highly doubt I'm going to be able to act like an adult when I see a birthday cake and presents. I have to say I owe another good year of life to God. Where would I be without His guidance? He really impacted my life last year as an 18 year old... and I have to admit it was haaard. I doubt this year will be any easier... choosing the right path isn't always rainbows and butterflies. but it is every penny worth the effort. The results are beyond amazing. God? Thank you, for loving someone like myself who makes new mistakes everyday and who is constantly falling back to the wayside. I pray my faith in you will only grow stronger!
and to all my lovely friends and family, thank you!
YOU. ARE. AWESOME.
I love birthdays!
