The New Year Is Almost Here

I thought I would share a recent comment I made on Facebook because it’s so true!

It’s been a busy year and some amazing stuff has happened. This is the year my sister got married, my best friend got married, and I got married. This is the year when I went out to my very first concert with my best friend and stayed at the best hotel I’ve ever been to! This is the year that I went on a road trip all the way up northern California, where I got to see where my husband’s family grew up, and I got to take a ferry around the San Francisco bay. This is the year I went to Kcon and got to meet one of my best online friends. This is the year my little nephew Harley was born. This is the year I finally got to see where my best friend moved, where we watched old anime and even went whale watching.

A lot has happened and I’m thankful for every experience, even if I sometimes don’t seem like it at the time. 2014 was a great year to be alive and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2015. I love you guys! See you next year.

It’s very true. A lot has changed this year. I did a lot of things that I never thought I’d be able to. It’s been a strange ride and through some of it, I might have even been a bit of a grouch. Now that I look back on it, though, I’m glad that I’ve had those experiences.

I also forgot one: this is the year I turned 30 years old. That humbles me. When I was young, I thought 30 was so old and that life after 30 would basically be over. That’s not true at all. I’m 30 years old and I still have a lot yet to experience. Let’s just hope most of those new experiences will be positive.
