The Past Decade!

I find it hard to believe in just a few short days it will be 2010. I remember when we were all at the crest of the new year ten years ago freaking out about Y2K. I was only ten years old. That was half of my lifetime ago. Yet it feels like it was yesterday.

In the past ten years:
  • I had ten different birthdays.
  • I became a Beehive, a Miamaid and a Laurel.
  • I progressed into Relief Society and eventually became part of the R.S. Presidency.
  • I learned how to drive. (And surprisingly haven't had a single accident or ticket in those five years.)
  • I went to numerous stake dances.
  • I had multiple crushes on stupid boys.
  • And I had my heart broken by most of them.
  • I did my first play, and have been in eleven others since then.
  • I was the lead in two of those shows.
  • I became best friends with three of my cousins.
  • I also became best friends with a girl that will probably be my friend for the rest of my life.
  • I had my first kiss.
  • I went to five different schools in the same town.
  • I went to High School.
  • I finished a first draft of a novel.
  • I made countless videos for YouTube.
  • I moved out of my parents house.
  • And I moved back home.
  • I had multiple jobs, some great, others terrible.
  • I spent ten years trying to figure out who I am, and while I didn't figure it out completely, I am excited to take advantage of the next ten to see if I can come to a conclusion.
There have been good times...and bad, but it's been a decade I wouldn't trade for anything. The experiences I had during this time in my life have made me who I am today, and good and bad, I love her.

Beehive, Miamaid and Laurel? Were you into some crazy video game?

Most boys are stupid, yes. But there are some good ones out there. Like me. :-P

Don't worry about not knowing who you are; I still don't know who I am.
