Twenty. Ten.

Happy New Year. I have successfully lived through another decade, wow. New Year's Day means Day 1 of new year resolutions. I wonder how many people will sign up at the gym today? How many people won't drink a soda today? Every year I usually make a long list of resolutions and I am always determined to follow through with them. This year, I didn't make a single resolution. Why, you ask? Well, I don't feel like it's a new year. Sure, today is the first day of 2010, but for me, it just puts another mark on my timeline. I am half way through with my junior year of college, I am 6 months shy of being 21 years old, I am still a kid, but close to adulthood, to me, I have only reached the half-way mark. Everyone sees today as a new beginning, but I don't. I see today as a reminder that time is flying by, that the world doesn't stop for me, for anyone. I am reminded that I don't need to make new year's resolutions, I need to make every day resolutions. I need to wake up every day with a clean slate, think of every morning as a fresh start. I want to be a better me, not just for 2010, but for every day. I want to do better in school not for 2010, but for me. As we say goodbye to another year, I can't help but think of how I have grown in the past year, It doesn't seem real. I don't feel any older, but I am. Time is ticking away, and instead of wasting time wishing it would slow down, I need to make the most of every day, every minute, every second. Today is all we have, we all are blessed to have seen the beginning of a brand new year. Count your blessings, move on from the past, and make every day count. Here's to 2010 and all the trouble I am sure to get into.
