Turns out though, that at the end of 2012, and almost the end of my 18th year, I've never been more grateful to move on.
2012 was rough. 18 was rough.
But they were good. I'm sure they were.
I just have to remember why.
So, I thought I'd go through some pictures and some journal entries and pull together the highlights of why this was, indeed, a good year.

Those are a few of the big wonderful things.
There were also a lot of big terrible things, that seem to outnumber the wonderful somehow.
But I know that those terrible things will end up being a part of something that's even more wonderful than all the wonderful things.
Because my God is good. And my God knows best.
