this december is special. because i'm going to be 16 this december. and my birthday actually falls on 12/12/12 this year [i think God did that just for me], so it's extra special. and because i want to look back on my teenage years and actually have something to look at, everyday this december, i will highlight one photo and talk a little bit about what happened around the time it was taken. in addition, i'm writing about the last 15 days i'm 15, and i'll post that the day before my birthday. all in all, i think it'll be a rather nice month, and to commence it, i'm going to turn on the air conditioning, put on ugly Christmas sweaters and watch the holiday episodes of little house on the prairie. seriously, though, happy saturday and happy december.
