2007 year end meme

2007 was a rollercoaster of a year. overall it was pretty great, but there were some really low dips in there. this year i lost one of the coolest people i will ever know, laini stamathis. it really feels like a huge chunk of me died along with her, so i am going to have to work on getting whole again. i started tearing up listening to in rainbows: disc 2 on the L this morning because she never got to hear it. her mom says she didn't think she finished harry potter and the deathly hallows because she didn't want it to end. in rainbows was on her ipod so i feel like she must have listened to it. in 2008, i plan to get myself back on track. i'm trying to do things i'd put off for ages, keep in touch with people i love on a more regular basis, and be more creative (music, writing, & crafts). resolution list forthcoming.

1) Where did you begin 2007? At Kris & Joe's place. Joe & Tipper's band The Ice Cream Floats played their first show (I think it was 3 songs long) and then we all danced to Hey Ya at midnight. Really small, really awesome new year.

Only when Reba was pulled over for speeding just outside of Chicago on our way to DC.
