Hello, 2010!

Thank you for being nice to me, lovely new year :)

I am no longer "grounded"! I understand what my father was trying to do...he was trying to make sure I value my freedom, and that I am thankful for it.
Not that it is something that can be taken away, but at times, it can be a luxury. And I fully understand that.

here I love that book/film

I realized that our children won't know what cassette tapes are, they wouldn't be able to imagine life before the internet, the won't have a VCR nor tapes to tape things on to, or watch their favorite cartoons..If video killed the radio star, who is it that's going to die during this decade?
they took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see. 

I will shine this decade. We all should.

It's now or never.
I understand that I will never be to old to be my parents' daughter! And I will never be too old to learn, never too old to heal...

I woke up today to a message from Uncle Steve, and being the emotional person I currently am, it made me cry! He said that once I know what I want, it will all work out fine, I will find obstacles, but I shall overcome them. Yes, my Uncle Steve is amazing! (and so are both sides of my family!)

I'll leave you with this:

Happy New Year!!!
I will definitely take the "never be too old to learn!!" deal...that's what most people forget. They think you git 24, let alone 28 and then your school days are over. I think it's different. We should learn and read and do whatever we like until we can't remember, hold a book, or go after what we so love in life! :)

Go now, and live! :)

Such a beautiful post ... it's so important to live in the moment, in the here and now. And I'm glad you've gotten that freedom ... sometimes with dads they take a while to give it you, but then you understand why. I really hope this is an amazing year for you.

As for what is going to die during this decade ... maybe the television since everything's on the internet nowadays! Just a thought, though :)

Haha, I've had my fair share of being quarantined in my room. :L

And, I know! There is a generation that won't be able to appreciate the advances technology such as the Internet and DVDs. The won't be able to experience when Disney and Nickelodeon was actually good.

Sara, I love your attitude. You're seeing life with a wisdom beyond your years and I think the future holds much in store for you.

This journey you're on is very interesting to me. I'm glad I found your blog, and I wish you all good things this year.
