Last year at this time I was getting acquainted with London. At the New Years Dance, that I didn't know was going to be a dance, I met my great friend Angus. I met lots of great people on that day who were my friends for the rest of my time there. I really miss London, and sometimes I want more than anything in the world to go back, immediately. But I enjoyed my time there and it was an amazing experience. I'll never have the same one again.
Here are things I am thankful for because I stayed in the US:
I love BYU more and more everyday. Even Provo is starting to grow on me -it is my home.
I have never been so close to my friends. I've never had friends whom I care for more. They mean everything to me.
I have probably the best boyfriend ever. Everyday I marvel at how amazing he is. He melts my heart and makes me blush. (In the cute old-timey way, not from embarrassment)
I love my job. It's the best. I couldn't have asked for a better job.
I love what I'm studying. I couldn't be studying this in the same way in London -I at least DEFINITELY could not afford it without loans.
Last of all, I am happy. I am really really happy. I wouldn't want to change all this. I know I would be happy in London, but it wouldn't be the same because I'm supposed to be here.
It's been a long year, a good year, some parts bad, but mostly good. And it's ending on a brilliant note. I hope I'll do better in 2010, but I'm doing alright and things are good.
