Happy New Year’s! Tonight we said goodbye to 2015 and rang in 2016. 2015 was an incredibly life changing year in my life. I graduated, went to college, traveled by myself for the first time, learned that I can take care of myself and live on my own, and so much more. Even though 2015 was one of the toughest years of my life, I grew so much. God and I grew ever closer in 2015 and I hope that 2016 follows suit.
I don’t like New Year’s resolutions because I never stick to them. I do, however, feel that I need to be pushed out of my comfort zone a little bit more in 2016. It’s the only way to grow, right? I started that journey earlier this month by starting an entirely new blog, and now I am adding a new platform to my docket. I have decided to try to start vlogging. I love watching vlogs such as PsychoSoprano and Mimi Ikonn, so I thought, why not try it? I have been dying to to try my hand at vlogging for such a long time. Mostly, this is for me to document my life for my future self to watch, so I can remember the moments that are meaningful to me. There have been so many times in 2015 that I regret not recording. No more of that. Here’s the new video I uploaded tonight: https://youtu.be/96rEkHAPq3A
Our New Year’s celebration was the same as previous years. My family has a tradition that we each pick a movie to watch until about ten minutes before midnight, when we turn to the local news channel which broadcasts the New Year’s celebrations in our county and the counties around us. We watched Grosse Point Blank, School of Rock (my choice), and Looper. We also listened to some music on the record player that I got over Christmas, which came today! James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James was the christening record, a personal favorite of mine and my dad’s.
I hope you all had a beautiful end to your Holiday season, may 2016 treat you well!
