So I feel like I should update this thing. I mean it's been so long...so here I am. I've survived a year of college, and now I guess it's time to reflect on what I've learned. And really I've learned alot about myself, I guess. Too much stuff has happened, and really I wouldn't want to say all of it here. I guess this post comes because a good friend of mine said goodbye tonight to something that happened in his past, and I was there to watch it. Not out of hatred, or remorse, or vengeance, but acceptance. I admire how he found the strength to take that step in accepting all the things that he experienced, good and bad. It showed me how life isn't who you were, what you did...not even whose life you changed. Life is something that's a spontaneous beauty, like a fire that twists out of a metal bucket of someone else's memories. To my friend, I hope you found peace tonight. You are stronger than I'll ever be. And to everyone out there who thinks their world is ending, I tell you it's just getting started. To feel the ending now would be like getting off a roller coaster before the big drop. Things change overnight, just like people. And the only thing you can control is yourself.

Now I sound like that damned Baz Luhrman song...
