When I was a kid, the "2000s" seemed soooo far away - so "futuristic". It is hard to believe that we've been in the 2000s for 14 years. It doesn't seem like it has been that long at all since we were dancing to Prince's 1999 at the New Year's Eve party for which it really counted.
(2000 zero-zero, party over, oops out of time)
The school year of September 2014 will see some kids who were born in the year 2000 entering High School. And, while that seems like kind of a trip to us old people, it won't see them arriving on their hover boards, or in their mom's hover-van, as I am fairly certain my 8 year old self was sure would be happening, and maybe even being considered passe, by this point in the future.
I guess, for us old fuddy-duddy's, time really does just keep moving faster and faster. Made more apparent when you have kids, I guess.
My first baby, who it seems was five only yesterday, graduates high school this year - in only six months from now, actually. A full fledged adult. Time is weird, haha!
Here is to the first blank page of a new 365 page book.
Happy New Year!
