So it is now time to say goodbye to 2005. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this year. I had some huge ups and downs throughout the year, so much so that at times I wish it never happened. This time last year, I was in Japan and was quite content with the uneventfulness of my life. I honestly can't say the same today. I know I'm dealing with everything the best that I can but if you think about it, "dealing with it" is such a depressing phrase. Here's hope that in 2006, I will be able to say that I enjoy everything that life throws in my direction.
