Just into 2007, and I felt like I should make my first post of the new year. I'm not sure how I feel. A little confused, a little tired, a little nauseated, a little excited, and a little sad.
2006 was a good year. I hope 2007 is as well.
So far in 2007.... I have not yet used the bathroom. My first text was from On. My first call was from Chris. My first LJ post is in the process of being constructed.
I'm not going to make a resolution this year, since I forget mine within a few days anyway.
But I will reflect a bit.
In 2006, I...
had my first experience with AP testing.
spent two weeks in Shanghai.
went to my first high school dance (I know, wtf).
got really sunburned for the first time.
got heatstroke for the first time (100++ degree moshpits = not a good idea).
dressed up as a fobby Asian tourist.
ate a lot of good food.
learned a lot.
Seriously, why is it so hard to compile a good list? Maybe I didn't do as much I thought in 2006, but I had a good year nonetheless.
In 2007 I have definite plans to...
spend a few weeks around the country.
pass all my AP tests (with mostly 5s. :) )
do a lot of community service.
2007 looks like it'll be a busy year. I think I might spend a month at a university summer program in the east. Or maybe somewhere else, but I don't really want to spend my summer here.
I'm also really wishing I could visit China. I don't think I'll get another chance till 2009, despite my longing to go in 2008 for the Olympics.
I don't really know what to do about the Global Young Leaders Conference either. They nominated me to represent the US this year, but I declined with the excuse of being too busy. They're renominating me in 2007, but I'll be even busier. Crap.
Anyway. I spent my last hours of 2006 playing pool with Asian boys (one of which is an MIT student... aaah). The young'uns raped our table. Damn.
Well, now it's about 2 hours into the new year and I should probably hit the sack.
Let 2007 be pretty damn awesome.
