Goodbye 2015; Hello 2016

We're hours away from the new year and I'm feeling a little indifferent. I don't feel nostalgic in any shape or form , which is weird because New Years Eve always brings out the nostalgia. Maybe it's because I've been caught up in work or because I am very happy to see 2015 go.

This was a difficult year, in a few different ways. It was the first full year I was out of college and I felt the post grad crisis hard. I was confused, anxious, nervous, worrisome, and not happy in many ways. I was struggling with a lot of things and didn't know which way was up.

It wasn't until a few months ago that I finally felt calm. I didn't feel like I was crazy nor did I feel like I didn't have my shit together. My anxiety calmed down, I calmed down, work was good, my social life was good...everything finally felt like it was falling into place.



I'm looking forward to the new year in a way that I hope will be a little calmer than 2015. I need some stability and I hope 2016 will be even better in that sense.

I classified 2014 as the best year of my life, and in so many ways it was. 2015 was less than perfect, and I hope we can go back to basics in an even number.

In 2016, I hope that I can achieve what I've been wanting to achieve in work, in the blog, in my personal life. I want to start writing more, both freelance and creatively. I want to put more time and effort into my blog and into my own social media.

I want to save money instead of spending it. I want to travel a lot more, and go out and see the world. I finally have the desire to have more of a social life and make plans with my friends and go out and actually do things!

There are so many things that I want to do and I think 2016 may be the year that I do it.

Happy New Year everyone!!
