The Year of Monica

So I know this girl named Francis. She was recently reflecting on 2007 and said that it was the best year of her life. "Really," I said, "Why's that?" Francis told me that she had accomplished more in 2007 than any other year in her life 'cause she committed last January to making the new year "The Year of Francis." I was intrigued and asked her to tell me more about this commitment she made. Francis always uses big words and wears really smart looking glasses, so I figure she knows what she's talking about whenever she says anything. Anyway, Francis said that she had decided to focus mainly on doing things that she had always wanted to do but just never got around to doing for one reason or another. She committed to improving herself and trying new things. So Francis has inspired me, and I've decided to make 2008 "The Year of Monica." Sounds a bit selfish? Maybe. But don't get me wrong, I'm not planning on becoming completely self-indulgent in 2008; I'm planning on learning as many new things as possible, doing things that I've always wanted to do but never have, and just trying to become a better person in general...a better daughter, a better sister, a better aunt. Yes, this new year will be "The Year of Monica." I know you guys are so excited, you can't even stand it.

Oh yeah, Hughler wants to say Happy New Year and sends his best wishes for your 2008!

I'm so excited for the year of Monica. I say go ahead and be as selfish as you want. I think I'll make 2008 to be the year of Aleesha as well. I'm ready for a really good year. Your friend Francis seems like such a smart person!!
