One thousand. That is how many consecutive days I have blogged. Since January 10th, 2010, I have blogged every single day. Sometimes it was only one sentence, and sometimes it was many paragraphs. But without fail, a blog entry has been posted every day, one thousand times.
I would hardly call this a quality blog. Certainly there have been times where I have written entries containing great profundity, but more often than not, I just post what's been happening in my life. That might not be as impressive as some blogs out there, but it's what I've done and dammit, I'm proud of it. I'm proud of the alarm on my phone that goes off at 10:00 PM every day. It reminds me that I'm still doing this, that it's still part of my life. It's not the biggest part, or the most monumental part, but it's definitely one of the most consistent parts. I can't imagine going a day without blogging now. It is so ingrained in my mind that it is something I must do daily. Nothing at all would happen if I skipped a day, but I just can't. It has become more routine than I ever thought it would.
This blog was originally supposed to be about the content. I was going to document the minutia of my daily life. I would look back on it, and remember the good old days, and swim in the nostalgia. But it somehow evolved to more than that, and that's been worth more than a dry but complete listing of my life.
Because I make posts like this at momentous occasions, such as the end of each year, there is no need to reiterate the entirety of everything that has happened because of this blog. For simplicity's sake, I will just mention once again that this blog has given me friends, new experiences, mysteries and so, so much fun. Everything that has happened, even the fact that this blog still exists, is more than I could have ever anticipated. I am so happy and so lucky that this stupid little project has given me all that it has.
I don't know what the future holds for this blog. I have no intention of stopping anytime soon, nor do I have any goal in mind for how long I would like it to continue. I suppose I will blog until it feels right to stop. If ever I miss a day, that day will likely mark the start of me blogging more irregularly, but with better content. And if I never miss a day, then this blog will perhaps continue on until the internet is obsolete.
I want to extend my sincerest thanks to all of my friends who have made this blogging experience what it is. I am a better person because of this blog. I am happier, and I am more aware of myself. This blog might seem like nothing to the average eye, but it has made so much of a difference for me. So thank you all for your support, and I will see you tomorrow. :)
