Eighteen Years.

    As I type these words, I turn eighteen, and the first thought in my head is, "What a wonderful world." Wow. I think those words might just have some meaning, or great meaning, to my life while  grow up. I'm not a kid anymore, but then again, I never really was. I have to start making better decisions, realizing consequences, and most importantly finding myself and learning who I am and what I stand for.
    I look forward to the rest of that journey as I take my first steps of adulthood to my room and into my bed where I shall promptly turn into a college-aged person who sleeps until noon and is still tired upon waking, and I will maybe dream my first waking nightmare with all the untouched Tickle-Me-Elmos and Tilt-a-Whirls of my childhood. I don't really know what I'm typing right now, I'm in a sort of blissful trancelike state and, far from feeling high, I feel alive.
    I feel alive in this wonderful world, and I see every color, every branch, every leaf and every blossom more clearly now than I see them in the memories of my childhood. And, with more conviction than ever, I think to myself what a wonderful world God has created.
    I have the best friends, and I wouldn't be the person who I am today without all of you [even you, Hanna. Even you] and even though I hurt sometimes, I wouldn't change a thing. Well, three thing. I would change three things, but thats it. Thank you for sharing my life with me. I love you guys.
