Above: boys & friends, car washing.
I write to you in my last few hours as a 31 year old. This year was marked not so much with new experiences, but rather more extremes. The highs were very high and the lows were very low. I am more independent now than I have ever been, more singularly responsible for the direction of my life. I am perhaps less sane.
If I had a wish for this year, it would be for serenity. But I don't believe in such things, so I haven't just lost my wish by telling you about it.
If I had a fear for this year, it would be pride. Being my own worst critic does not elevate me above my mistakes.
If I have another year, that will be enough.
32, here I come.
