I'm like Connie. I don't like letting go. When I think of 2012 slipping away I feel kind of sad. I mean, I'm excited about 2013. But what about 2012??
There's been so many things that have happened. So many memories created. I never want to forget. Ever. Just like Connie, I can keep my memories. But I also want to go forward and make new ones.
Recently, I read a book called 11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass. In it, a girl called Amanda gets stuck for a week on her 11th birthday.
And just think--would I want to be stuck in 2012?
The answer's no. I want to get older. I want to keep on learning new things. I want to meet new people, go to different places, and write new stories. I don't want to be stuck here.
What are you looking forward to?
