A New Year

School starts up tomorrow.  I am not ready for it.  I will not be ready for it until my alarm goes off that morning before I drag myself to school.  And, I should probably look at my schedule again so I know where I am expected to be at what time.  Meh.

I think 2011 went entirely too fast.  At lot has happened.  Some, I expected.  My grandmother has deteriorated significantly over the past year.  I got into the college I wanted.  No significant family drama involving my dad’s relatives.  But not everything went as expected.  I had a group that presented without me instead of waiting a few minutes or trying to figure out why I was running late.  I walked in as they finished the presentation.  I was NOT happy.  Luckily, the professor allowed me to present solo a few days later, after I had a chance to calm down.  A guy asked me out.  I was not particularly interested in getting involved in a relationship at that point in time, but ultimately decided to take the risk.  I am still debating on whether or not it was worth it.  He and I are still friends, but I do not think we will be much more than that.  There are some serious obstacles that need to be dealt with, and I do not think he is interested in that.  I wish things were different, but he made his choice.

But the good and bad and the predictable and unexpected are what makes our live unique and worth living.  I try to find the bright points or the humor in things, because if I do not, things will get dark very quickly.  And I do not like being in that kind of darkness.

So, 2012 starts like a blank piece of paper.  I have no idea what to expect from this year.  I can only hope that there is more good in the year than bad.  We shall see.
