I don’t really have the will or energy to recap the past year — or past ten years — here or anywhere. So much has happened since the year 2000! So much, in fact, that I can’t remember most of it (at least not easily). Here are a few scant observations:
— i started the 2000s in massachusetts, still in high school, and finished them here in brooklyn with a lovely job, a lovely boyfriend, and a crazy but lovely cat.
— this was a decade of firsts: first love, first car, first apartment, first time living away from home, first real job; there probably won’t be another decade that rivals the 2000s in the sheer volume of firsts. i think i’m okay with that.
— the decade was bisected by college. i like that there have been nice little bookends of 3 years on both sides of my time at slc. i miss it sometimes, but i couldn’t be happier to be done. and couldn’t be happier to have gone there.
— completely terrifying that i will be in my mid-thirties the next time i face this kind of retrospective.
i guess i became an adult over the past ten years. so, goodbye decade of my youth. it’s been kewl.
if i tried would you still call me son? if i tried would you call me at all? if i say that i’ll go regardless of what you want me to do i’m better off without i’m better off without you if i change my mind it won’t be soon enough for you but i’m not you i’ll try to compromise for you to see that there’s so many other things for me to find out run myself to the ground would you please forgive me if i found my way back home? everything i see everything i do everywhere i’ve been these mean nothing to you?
