Well, dear reader, to tell you the truth it was going to be about David Bowie, but I am nothing if not democratic… the people have spoken! Here is 2007 in review:
January was complicated,
As my sister married the boy she dated.
February events are hard to tell,
As life in SLO went to hell.
March started a new life with resolution,
For I finished Cal Poly and Intro to Air Pollution.
April changes take place every year
Because I always grow a year older.
May was my last month on the Central Coast
So we danced for all those birth could boast.
June’s graduation made me thank my maker,
But still I shook my fist at Warren Baker.
In July I saw my first Echo campers,
When I think of them my heart leaps and scampers.
August stole my dear, sweet Paul,
For whom I wrote a poem to share with you all.
September called me back to Mount Hermon,
Where I have a roommate who likes to speak German.
In October I started to explore a denomination,
That practically celebrates Christ’s Incarnation.
November meant a Thanksgiving far from McCollum -
Fortunately our potluck was not solemn.
December did not change a whole ton,
Even so, I ask: God bless us, everyone!
There you go, weaselnuts – I hope you gleaned a thing or two from all of the changes I went through this year. This last year was quite tumultuous at times – I most certainly did not handle post-college life as well as some, but probably better than others too. So I toast to 2007: You were a fine year with much heartbreak and tears, but you also brought me great love and joy. Raise you glasses high my friends, for in a few brief hours we'll be through with this gloridiculous year forever!
Or as DB put it, “Time may change me, but I can’t trace time.” Whatever that means…
Watch out 2008 - I'm coming for you
