The Teacher's Journal
Holy ******** />
I can't believe Gaia is 12 years old. If Gaia were a preteen girl, it would be obsessed with One Direction and Snapchat. It's kind of weird. Even more disturbing is how looking back on Gaia's birthday makes me reflect about the last 12 years of my own life.
I mean, sure, I wasn't around Day 1. I didn't join Gaia until Halloween of 2003, but that's still a really long time. I've changed so much from the 16 year old girl that created this account. I'm legit an adult now; I've been married nearly 5 years, I'm getting ready to graduate college, and I know the difference between a 401K and an IRA.
I'm not the most active Gaia user. I don't post on the forums much anymore, and have all but given up on getting a lot of the newer items. Still, though, through ups, downs, heartbreak and falling in love, Gaia has been here for me through it all. There will be one day that this website exists only in Internet archives, but in the interim, it is still my home.
