i guess i've done this once or twice, going through the past year to see what happened. i usually have to go through old journals and see what really went down. in no order of significance, in 2008, i...
-grew past being 21, literally and figuratively
-kept my hair dark, found out i could make it a little curly
-held a human brain
-made friends, kept friends, got sick of some...
-graduated from college with honors
-found a legit job in a field i enjoy, with my bff nonetheless, quit the salon
-aka made a big transition in my life
-wrote poetry even less, but wrote much more freely in my journal
-went to church less and less
-actually followed some politics, voted for the first black president, watched him win
-felt a little close to j. alfred prufrock, measuring out my life with coffee spoons
-watched the making of a sand mandala at umd
-got a new car (rip stanza), started making payments and insurance
-witnessed my dad get a new lease on life after the er found a main artery to be 95% blocked, and promptly fixed it
-heard about my aunt having a brain tumor, cancer, and complications, didn't know what to say when my cousin found me on facebook
