End-of-the-Year Ramblings

December 31, 2009

One year ago I knew 2009 would be better than 2008.  I had reason to be sure — during the first six weeks of 2008 my mother was diagnosed with cancer, my school was hit by an F-4 tornado while my mom was in surgery, and I’d lost all of my belongings [except for a half-dozen lumpy garbage bags of remains filed by the Tennessee Guard].  While the move to the new city and the beginning of law school brought many exciting firsts, it was a difficult transition; by the end of that first semester I knew that something was about to break.

Well, it did.

Not only was this last year of school amazing, but I found a wonderful roommate, got engaged to an amazing man, and embarked on a new journey toward “adulthood.”  I’m ready and excited for what is coming.

But, it makes me think:  do you have to survive natural disasters and family tragedies to be certain that the future is going to be better and brighter than the past?
