Since I am now the wise old age of 22, I would like to take this opprotunity to reflect upon my accomplishments over the past score and 2 years. It seems to me we dwell entirely too much upon the negative things in our lives... I, however, like to see the brighter side as much as is possible. I'll try not to drone.
My list of accomplishments, as completely and accurately as I can manage:
*I have infiltrated a Marine base
*I have been to Asia
*I remember my first Christmas, yes, I was 7 months old.
*I make really good salmon dip
*I have in my possesion a shirt that I won when I was 9 years old for making a poster about the dangers of flying kites near power lines. It glows in the dark.
*I can change a flat, change my oil, and I do not rely on triple-A
*I am not afraid of snakes
*I have a wonderful husband who I intend to keep for quite some time. I love you, Matt.
*I know the difference between you're and your.
*I also know the difference between they're, there and their.
*I have been to most of the 50 states in this wonderful nation
*My cat has her own livejournal
*I get invited out with the boys
*I know how to sew
*I can drive a stick shift
*I NEVER substitue "u" for "you."
*I have been a nude model
*I can go to the bathroom, zip up, wash my hands, and be back on AIM before you even know I was gone
*I am in the coolest band in the world, with one of the greatest people I know, and our music got played on the radio in Seattle

*I have been using public transportation for 2 years, more or less exclusively
*I have 2,301 mp3s
*I've chased baracuda
and one more before I go to bed:
*I have the best friends in the world. I would not be the person I am today if it weren't for all of you (yes, YOU). You inspire me, motivate me, and give me a reason to smile every day. You are all so different and wonderful! I love you guys. Thank you.
