This year was different than the last few years. I didn't see any of the usual kids I see during the holidays. I didn't go to the same bars. We're all so scattered now, and doing different things. And losing touch with some people (because really, how many people can you truly keep in touch with?).
But I think it's okay. Just because it's different doesn't mean it's bad.
I am thankful too. Despite the minor plumbing disasters in my room, there's not much I could think to ask for this year that I don't already have.
So karma, life, god, whateveritis - thanks.
