I can't believe it slipped my mind...

August 2nd was exactly one year from the day I wrote my first blog post on Wishful Thinking! I can't believe it's been a whole 365 (now 367) days since I first began posting my thoughts on this addicting website. So much has changed since then, and yet it seems like just yesterday that I was looking forward to my senior year of high school. I remember feeling so excited and more than prepared to face all of the adventures that the next twelve months of my life would bring. To say that now, however, would be far from the truth—honestly, I'm not feeling too confident about anything these days. I'm off to college in less than three weeks, and I still have a million questions swimming around in my head that will remain unanswered until I happen to stumble across the answer myself. I'm just a little intimidated, if you know what I mean.

But I can only pray that I make it to August 2011 without having made too many mistakes along the way, and hopefully with lots of good stories about my freshman year at UT. For all I know, it might turn out to be the best (if not the scariest) year of my life.

Anyway, happy (belated) birthday to my handy dandy little blog!
