How I've changed:
I've become more ambitious and more determined. I've lost a lot of weight (I weighed more at 14 than I weigh at 19). I have a lot more friends. I've become a better reader and a better writer. I don't spend as much time on the computer. I graduated from high school and am doing rather well in college. I've learned how to study. I have a MUCH better taste in music. When I put my mind to it, I can move mountains. I'm happy.

How I've stayed the same:
I'm still quiet. I still tend to be pretty anti-social (unintentionally, I swear!). I still feel like I'm a kid most of the time. I still don't have my #@*&! driver's license. I still love Garbage.
