The last day of 2005. What a year. We had a blizzard at school, the orchestra and combined choirs of Gordon did Mendelssohn's Elijah, there was the great Napoleon Dynamite craze, we went on choir tour to Pennsylvania and Michigan and Wheaton, I spent Easter in Pennsylvania with the FavoriteBoy Family, my adorable nephew was born, I gave my junior recital, I made it to the 100 Mile Club at the gym, I watched my five super apartmentmates graduate, Kathy and Justin got married, the folks from my freshman year at Biola graduated, I turned 22, my family went on vacation without me and I stayed home and cleaned the house amazingly well, I played in the Music in the Mountains summer festival, FavoriteBoy visited and met my family, I went camping with family and friends, Courtney and Michael got married, the summer was my last one living at home, Story and Josiah got married, I started rooming with Cara, FavoriteBoy took me to hear the Saint-Saens Organ Symphony, I started going to a new church where FavoriteBoy got a job and I joined the choir, I bought my very own first car, we learned Leonardo in choir, Libby and Jonathan got married, my violin teacher talked to me a lot about my future, I played The Lark Ascending three times on orchestra tour, I spent Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania, I learned to navigate my way through Boston traffic alone, I practiced 225 hours this past semester, I Discovered myself and survived the whole ridiculous experience, I survived Pedagogy, I survived one semester of Latin, I took my last jury ever, I saw The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe with FavoriteBoy, and now I've spent my last Christmas at home where I'm really a "kid," still living at home. I wonder what 2006 will hold? I'll give my senior recital, I'll graduate, and then...? I have no idea. Okay, that's kind of scary.
