damn that felt weird to type


i don't want to make this a novel, because i'm running late to get to megan's house (it's her birthday today, go wish her a good one), but i do want to take the time to thank you all for everything.

to those of you who have been helpful and supportive from the very beginning (especially makena and tony!), i am so indebted to you. without your constant comments and messages, i have no doubt in my mind that i would have quit this long ago.

thank you to everyone who's inspired me throughout this past year - i hope you all know who you are - and to everyone who's ever commented, sent messages, or left testimonials; that's meant more than you know. i couldn't have done anything without you all.


in the end, though, this photo is sort of meaningless. i've finished my 365, i've made it through another year, i've changed, and i know that; i don't need a final photo to remind me of it. ultimately, i did this project for myself - although i'm incredibly grateful that you all were along for the ride - and it did what it was supposed to: i've improved, i've changed, and that's all that matters.


to all of you who are starting or thinking about starting a 365 tomorrow: i wish you all the best of luck. stick with it, have fun, and before you know it, it'll be december again. i'm so, so glad i saw mine through to the end.
