it would take me so long to come up with that many things about myself. I'm afraid I find myself terribly boring. I need to fix that.

I realized the other day, its been seven years since we went on our trip together. SEVEN YEARS. Which means its been about five or so since we've seen each other? Can you believe that? It certainly doesnt seem that long. Oh how time passes. *hugs* Thinking of that made me incredibly sad. (and also old. :P)
