Happy New Year!!!

2005 has certainly been a year. Wow. It's kind of weird to think that we've been here for a year. See, we moved into our current apartment on January 1st last year. Wow, it really is last year. Crazy.

Overall, I think it's been a good year. Certainly less pain than 2004. We're pretty sure a lot of those wounds haven't healed yet. 2005 was lonelier than 2004, and I'm not sure if that's so we could recover from 2004, or because we hadn't. At any rate, all we can do is keep on trucking, I guess. As far as resolutions go, we're not really into that whole thing--mainly just trying (and probably failing) to be better all the time. If I was to say we had one, it would probably be to get to Japan, but that was one of our resolutions last year. Maybe we'll do better this year.

We rang in the new year with volume 1 of Princess Tutu. I have a lot to say about that, which means it would probably be better to save it for another entry. We actually finished the DVD at about 11:30, so we ended up watching the Cosby Show until it got close to the hour, then watched the countdown on NBC. And we toasted the new year with Disneyland lemonade, since we didn't have any Martinelli's.

We were actually very happy to spend the day by ourselves. Though to be honest, we were kind of hoping that Mom would call and invite us over there so we could refuse the invitation. Our home teacher called and offered to drive us to the dance, but I really think we were better off watching Princess Tutu. Dances just aren't our thing, mostly because we're very bad at small talk, and that's made even worse when you have to keep shouting for the people right next to you to understand what you're saying.

Anyway, things in 2005 that I am very thankful for include going to AX, having a place to live, seeing the Disneyland 50th Anniversary Celebration stuff, being in a good ward and having a very good home teacher, and getting a LiveJournal account to keep in touch with current friends as well as make new ones.
