Today is the last day of the year and there is everything I got to say:
2015 was year full of great things in my life. First, I officially got a job at a bookstore. I returned to college, now to study English Literature, which I think it was a cool decision. Now time I feel more ready and comfortable than before. I met a decent amount of people and made new friends, I traveled to my dream destination and read amazing books that I’ll never forget. I turned 25 and I don’t feel like it! Well, this year was epic.
One of the best experiences this year brought me was visiting Paris, France for the first time. It’s been my dream since I was a little and after saving a lot of money and as part of a class in college I made it happen. It is the best trip I ever done yet. I went with a group of people I barely knew and they became the people I’ll never forget. This trip changed my life and when I look back at the memories it reminds me that is possible to let go of the fears and enjoy the present. Paris met all my expectations and thanks to that trip I met new people, places, experiences and discovered old authors. In Paris I visited all the places I always dreamed on visiting like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Opera Garnier and also meet Vincent Van Gogh paintings. That trip helped me to overcome that depressed part of me. It felt like I got rid of a weight that was slowly shutting me down.
This year has been all about blogging, books and social network life specially Twitter. Another thing this year brought me was new blogger friends. I am so happy I have met other bloggers, I feel like I found my place in the social network world. The first ones are Shari and Brittany, they are amazing girls and I am so glad they are in my life. I had the chance to meet Shari in person and I’ll hopefully meet Brit next year. Twitter has made me bond with many bloggers and authors. If it wasn’t for those friends this year wouldn’t be the same. I found in them comfort and a place to fangirl about books, which my favorite thing to do.
Besides all my “Twitter/bloggers/book” friends, I met a lot of friends in person. I found people who I can fangirl with and don’t think I am crazy, which makes me so happy. I also met friends who I can sing along Broadway musical songs with me, that is something I never thought it was going to happen in my life!
My love for The Beatles will never stop and this year I got the change to see the other Beatle alive, Ringo Starr, in concert. Also, the new Star Wars movie came out. I found my new favorite book in “I’ll Give You The Sun” by Jandy Nelson. I ran all over obsessed with Leigh Bardugo and her wonderful characters Inej and Alina (my fictional twins) and let my heart be amazed, in love and broken by Sarah J. Maas books. I read new authors and learned a lot from their writing because they are my heroes and role models. Finally, I got a new phone and finally changed from PC to MAC.
My hair now shorter and I’m older. My blog has it’s domain name. And I know how to make metal jewelry. This year was full of new people, new experiences and memories that will stay in my heart forever.
So I say goodbye to a wonderful year and hello to a new year of better things. I wish you all a Happy New Year!
2016 I’m ready!
