Another year has come and gone.
It's been 9 years since I first started this LJ.
It's been 8 years since I first came to Brisbane for university.
It's been 7 years since I first met the SO.
It's been 6 years since I got my first full-time job (and hated it).
It's been 5 years since I handed in my first resignation.
It's been 4 years since I got my first doll.
It's been 3 years since I first started wearing lolita.
It's been 2 years since I got married.
It's been 1 year since I first joined this new job (and loving it).
This year hasn't been as intense and fulfilling as 2007 (wedding, EOY, TDA) or as wrist-slashingly awful as 2004. But all in all, it's been a good year.
I am grateful for the blessings I have had, because not everyone is as lucky in life as I have been.
I am grateful for the people who have made a difference, because they are the ones who move the world.
I am grateful for the mistakes I have made, because without them, I wouldn't be where I am today - hopefully wiser.
I am grateful for the future I will have, because it is something to look towards.
So to all, a warm season greetings for the season past and a hug for the next.
