2015 is over and today’s the first day of 2016.
2015 was a good year. Not amazingly great, but not horrible. I’m very thankful for everything that has happened this year, and know everything happens for a reason.
I’ve lost two close family members of mine: my Lola & my great aunt Meng. Their lives has inspired me so much. They accomplished so much and impacted so many people. During their respective wakes, people would come up to me and tell me stories I’ve never even heard of or thought of. Deaths also means family gathering. When my Lola passed away, my relatives I haven’t seen before or haven’t seen in a really long time, took time off and celebrated my grandma’s life because she was just so special. I didn’t know so much about my grandma’s upbringings and younger years and how she ended up with my Lolo, but it was all so exciting. She was one kick ass grandmother.
In 2015, I actually travelled outside Los Angeles for concerts. It was weird that majority of my summer concerts was in San Diego and the unfamiliarity of the place just made it more adventurous. It was memorable because not only did I see my favorite people, I saw them with my best friends. Going to Boston was also unforgettable. It was my first trip going somewhere with just my friends and without my family. Going to the east coast for a couple of days made me realize that I want to travel outside California. And I’m excite for 2016 to come because my dad, sissy, best friends & I booked a week long NEW YORK trip in August. Can’t wait for that.
I’ve also started my driving lessons… I’ve crashed my first car and currently learning before I take my test in February.
I transferred to a new university and it was such a thrilling change and scary. It was another ballpark I had to learn how to play and everything I would be learning are all upper division work and something that will prepare me for my future. It’s hitting me that I’m so close to being in the actual real world. Real life work. I know that God will be with me through the whole thing and I put all my faith and self in Him.
I am so ready for 2016. Bring it.
