I realize how fast the year has gone by because it seems like the pond was just frozen over solid, but it’s now warm and open, with geese nesting next to it, and bass leaping to eat the bugs off the surface of the water. The snapping turtles are trying to disguise themselves to take a breath of air.
I don’t know where the year has gone, but we are now nearing the end. During this year I have changed a lot. I have learned responsibility and trustworthiness. What I hope to get out of the last two weeks is to learn as much as I can and get a couple more good experiences. I will leave here with a new attitude about people, and a new sense of responsibility and accountability, and, most important, I will leave here a trustworthy person who is respected.
