2008 was a year in which I probably learned more about myself than any other time before that. I think 2009 has a very good chance to eclipse this. There's no question, this year is going to bring many big opportunities and while I've not always embraced change, this year my arms are wide open. I've learned the importance of independence, self confidence and thinking outside the box on an entirely new level and these are things that will only continue to grow. Another thing I've really appreciated more than ever is just how important and awesome it is to have my friends to go on this journey that is life with me. Some of them have been by my side for years, others are recent additions. but all are an important contribution to who I am and if you're reading this you're probably one of them so I'd like to thank you for that!

I don't know what the future holds, but that's probably the fun of life now isnt it? I know there's going to be plenty of interesting changes ahead this year and I know some of it will be out of my control, but I do know that I've got the power to control some things and that's something I plan on utilizing more than anytime before that.

So here's to 2009, actually here's to life in general, let's live it up together!

"there were ocean waves
big city lights
lazy summer days
and crazy sleepless nights

somewhere along an open road
we drove ourselves out of our minds
sometimes to do the things you love
you leave the ones you love behind

you danced
you drank
you laughed
you cried
you went to work
and said goodbye
i've lived
i learnt
stayed up all night
i'll see you when the time is right again

i got old shoes in a brand new town
i wear 'em like they're staring, let the tongues hang out
i'm just too loose for the same old crowd
if i could only see your face before my souls wear down

somewhere out on an open road
you searched until you looked inside
sometimes you've gotta see the world
to find out what you left behind

you danced
you drank
you laughed
you cried
you went to work
and said goodbye
i've lived
i learnt
stayed up all night
i'll see you when the time is right again

wait for me
(don't wait, don't wait)
wait for me
(don't wait, don't wait)

we woke before the sun could rise
we packed our bags and waved goodbye
we drove into a great sunset
and lived a life with no regret
we lived a life with no regret

(don't wait, don't wait, don't wait, don't wait)

i can't wait for the sun to rise
i'll never know until i try
we made mistakes and learned in time
we all grow old we live and die

we live"

Well its finally come to the end of another summer. And I look back at it now and think....wow I have grown so much! I'm not sure I can say I've ever learned as much about myself as I have over the past 4+months. There has been so many experiences that have taught me so much more about the person I actually am as opposed to the former shell of myself. I think back to who I was, and I wonder, wow how was I actually satisfied with my former self. I've started to become the person that I think has been hiding inside for so long. My social skills have flourished and I am so thankful they have because without it, I would not have met and made so many amazing friends as I have the past few months. I finally realized... what I was looking for, for so long... its not what I needed, but rather what I have now is what makes me the happiest I have been in a long time. For the longest time, I thought there was a piece of the puzzle missing and that I had to look outside of myself to find that lost piece when in reality I've held control over the complete picture all along. The best part though, is the fact that I'm just getting started! I see where I am now and I know I've still got a long way to go but it excites me because I know that every situation is a new oppurtunity I can capitalize on.

 Downtown Song - Anberlin....

I really am loving this song right now. The first time I heard it I just went "YES! This song totally captures how I'm feeling!" ha ha ha... Don't you just love when there's a song like that? To be honest I'm not even 100% sure why I felt like I connected with it but I just really feel like it makes sense

For those interested, I am trying to get a group out to the Bomber game on October 5th vs. BC. It's a Friday night and it should be a great game. I'm hoping to get this all sorted out by midweek next week so that tickets can be purchased. So if you're interested in coming please leave a comment here.
