an ocean of resolutions

I have a very good feeling about this year.

The transition from '11 to '12 seemed right and natural, as opposed to last year where everything was hanging in the balance and just waiting to be completed & achieved. This year is going to be prosperous in creative endeavors and spontaneous happenings. I am going to stop thinking about what I should, could be doing in three years time and focus on now. I'm twenty this year and that scares me quite a bit. Been going through a bit of a quarter (?) life crisis, not knowing what I'm doing / what I should be doing / whether I've made the right choices etc etc. First term in, maybe it's inevitable. Don't get me wrong - my course, friends, flat, london - everything is incredible but it's overwhelming and daunting to now have to make pretty big, life altering decisions and stick with them when you're not fond of, or very good at, decision making. The post-christmas blues haven't helped my mood but the dawn of a new year has given me a new kind of optimism. Even though everything is an unknown, I will make the most of this year.
I'm finally where I want to be... and I'm excited.
