Well, I’m officially 21 years old and it’s officially 2009! Woot! Happy New Year, everyone!
Well, my birthday isn’t as interesting as the New Year is, but still, a birthday’s a birthday, right? The sad part about it is that my so-called ‘friends’ from my school didn’t even remember me on my birthday. Heck, they greeted me alright, but their greeting is ‘Happy New Year’. It’s really sad and frustrating but, there’s nothing I can do about it. *sigh*
Anyways, a lot of hulaballoo is going on about whether 2k9 would be a lucky year. Well, I could care less about all that luck junk since I believe you make your own luck and not whether the stars are aligned on your favor or what your birth year is.
There are about a buzillion shows going on around right now stating whether or not you would be lucky on 2009 but what they’re saying isn’t true. Heck, making a prediction about the country being in a peaceful state is fine but let’s face it, as long as there are people in power who want even more power, and as long as both sides don’t want to listen to what the other is saying and resolve matters without the need for guns or violence; as long as there are poor, oppressed people, people without jobs and money, as long as corruption exists, peace wouldn’t come so easily.
I really am easily annoyed when someone says they can look into the future and see what’s going to happen. The future is something we all have to make not something we have to see.
Well, anyways, my mom asked me what my New Year Resolution is. I don’t know exactly what I should say to her or what it should be that I must be aiming for. Of course, I am aiming for my dreams to come into fruition.
In the end, I think I’m just going to tell my mom that I would try to live up to my motto, “Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality”, since, quite honestly, I am easily scared of things that are new to me.
I do hope that this year I’d be a lot stronger than I was before…as a person. I know that in the past year, 2008, I learn to stand up for myself more than I used to, after the hell I went through with that stupid college thesis thing. This year, I hope to become even more of a stronger and better person.
I hope I can make it.
