Yup, I believe that I follow this.
I am feeling pretty good about this year, which is why I plan on following through with the 365 Challenge for 2013.
I know people usually quit doing this in about a couple of months, but there’s something in my gut telling me that this year is definitely going to be a memorable year for me.
Although every day not may be “perfect”, I do not want to forget anything that happens this year.
2013 is my year, I feel it.

Dear Charlotte Rivera,
We met in sophomore year, but we did not become close until junior year. I am so blessed to have met you, because you are one of those people who really did create an impact in my life. I never thought I would ever meet someone who is different from me yet shares so many similar qualities with me.
Together, we are the dynamic duo and we’re both fierce in our own way. It’s amazing how people do consider us “fierce” and they know when we’re together, we’re an unstoppable force.
You’re one of my lovely girlfriends and I swear we have too many cute moments! It’s funny because we’re straight, but we still act a little lesbian for one another. Ahah, okay on a serious note, it’s crazy how similar our circumstances are at home; especially with our dads.
Our friendship is unique because we are not quick to judge one another. In fact, we had that little episode of drama that we were able to quickly resolve. I love how we can relate to one another in so many things. We have this intellectual connection that makes us both strong writers, speakers, and students.
Because of you Charlotte, I feel more comfortable in my own skin; truly unafraid to be myself. You have taught me to embrace Korean music and celebrities. You have given me reassurance that there is something called fate. I know I was destined to meet and befriend you.
God made our paths cross for a reason and at the end of this year, I finally realized why. We support each other and encourage one another to be a better person. We are slow to anger towards to each other and if there is a problem, we always tend to fix them quickly. We listen to each other and try to understand each other. You are my best friend/dynamic duo/girlfriend and my life has forever changed because of your presence.
Charlotte Rivera, thank you for everything that you have done for me. Though this year is at it’s end, our friendship has yet to start it’s amazing journey! I know we’ll be graduating in a couple of months and we might end up going to different colleges, but know this: We are meant to be life long friends. No matter which college we go to or what city we move in, we are going to hang out for sure over summer break; especially when I get my license. Our friendship will last a life time, and even longer because knowing the both of us, a day is not complete if there isn’t a time of the day where we talk, hang out, or spend time with one another.
I love you Charlotte Rivera! Happy New Year!
Have you ever seen a palm tree in the midst of a great storm? That tree may be bent so far over that it’s almost touching the ground, but when the wind finally stops, the palm tree bounces right back up. What’s interesting is that while the palm tree is hunched over the pressure of the storm, it is actually becoming stronger.
“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree…”
(Psalm 92:12, NIV)
See, the reason God said we’d flourish like a palm tree is because He knew there would be difficult times. He knew there would be difficult times. He knew things would come against us to try and steal away our joy and victory. But God said…
“You’re going to be like a palm tree because when the storms of life blow, you are going to come back up stronger than before.”
As you reflect over the events that occurred over the last year, remember, the storms you have encountered have only made you stronger. You are wiser, more alive, and headed for victory. Your brightest days are right in front of you! Always remember, that with God on your side, nothing can hold you back.
The reality is, you can’t erase the past no matter how much you want to. We all make choices in life and it may be hard to live with some of them, However, don’t screw yourself over one little mistake. You need to accept, learn, and move on.

Yup, I believe that I follow this.
I’m happy. I finally got to take a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Wow, you take such beautiful pictures Karol! :3
I love to volunteer and partake my role in the community. I believe that I should help as many people as I can for as long as I can. To do so, I have been looking into various volunteering opportunities.
I do not know anyone who would be down to volunteer with me and I honestly do not mind volunteering alone. However, there is just one problem — I don’t have a ride to the places that I want to go.
Times like this, is where I regret not trying to get my permit sooner and wish I could just have my license already. To be able to have my license will enable me to really be the person that I can be and do the things that I want to do. I won’t abuse my license and go to random places for no good reason, no I have plans and goals that I could only attain with my license.
I really hope that I can get my license at least before I graduate because there are plenty of volunteering opportunities that I just don’t want to miss out on.
Man, I really want to go to the mall to attack those “after Christmas” sales and finish buying some people things, but I can’t because I don’t have my license.
I also want to watch Les Miserables with my mother, but she can’t even drive as well. Man, we’re both screwed in this situation.
Oh, the struggle.
