Remember way back in January when I said I was working on this blog's 200th blog entry, and I had something big planned? Yeah, that never happened. I also delayed posting anything else on this blog basically since last October due to wanting the 200th to be something special. Since what I wanted to do is never going to get done, I may has well post something else as the 200th blog post. Like this post!
So I graduated from high school a month or two ago (fiiiiiinally!), and as a graduation present I went with my parents and grandmother to Arizona to see a lot of cool sights—including the Grand Canyon! It looks exactly how it does in photographs... but more, well, real. It was massive. Just looking down at it felt so... surreal.
A lot of people have asked me what I'll be doing next year. The answer is—I have no idea! I'm taking a gap year, but that doesn't mean I'm spending it working, or on a missions trip, or doing anything at all in particular. Listen, you. I've been given my first opportunity in twelve years to take a break from school, so there's no way in heck I'm gonna turn it down. I have no plans. What will I do the year after? I suppose we'll find out then, won't we.
So, you may be asking (probably not), "What was the 200th blog post going to be about?" Well, my plan was to write commentary. Commentary for my entire blog up to this point. Yes, I know, that's a massive project, but when I first thought it up it seemed feasible. Obviously I encountered some problems since then.
Now, the reason why I wanted to write commentary about every blog post I've ever written on this blog is partly because I thought it'd be a fun thing to do. The other reason is that over the past three and three-quarter years that I've had this blog, my opinion has changed about a lot of things that I've said, and I wanted to address those things. For example, someone could read through my blog and find a post about, say, cutting that I wrote two and a half years ago and assume that my opinion on the matter is still the same today. (For the record, it's not.) Thus, I wanted to address such matters.
So, now that I've finally published a 200th blog post, I can finally post regular stuff on my blog again! It's a shame that I didn't ever finish the project I had in mind, but perhaps I'll do something like that in the future. For now, farewell!
P.S. There is nothing in the world more adorable than watching bear cubs playing and wrestling and climbing trees.
