Well, it’s been a while. Thanks to a combination of being way to freakin’ busy plus the worst writer’s block evar I’ve taken an unexpected hiatus. But now I’m ready to jump on the bandwagon and embark on Princess Lastertron’s Radvent Project. (I’m a little behind, please excuse while I catch up.)
What were you doing five years ago today? As the holiday season began? Where were you? Who were you with? What did you want? What did you have?
Woah boy, where do I begin? In 2005 I was seventeen and about half-way through my senior year of high school. I was literally having the time of my life.
I had extraordinary friends.
My water polo team rocked.
I had just started seeing a new boy, which was obviously terrifying and exciting.
Also, since it was December it meant I got to see my sister + Katie soon, who were both away at college.
At that time I was hell bent on moving to Seattle.
I took a photo of myself for every five steps I took… literally.
I was weird and confident. I didn’t care what anyone thought of me. In fact, I’ve spent a lot of time during the past five years just trying to get myself back to that place.
I’m not sure if I knew who I was but I certainly didn’t give a flying… well, you know.
2005 was all about having fun, living in the moment and being blissfully unaware of the fact that very shortly everything would change.
