Farewell 2015

The year is coming to an end and it is crazy to think about how much has happened in only 12 months. 2015 was full of changes for me and I am looking forward to what 2016 has to offer.

So, what did I do?

  • I traveled to Vegas, Oregon (via roadtrip!), DC, Santa Barbara, Japan, New York, Boston, and LA.
  • It was my first year in a long time being single on Valentine’s Day, but I spent it hiking and eating sweets with friends.
  • I attempted to give Facebook up for Lent. I didn’t complete it, but it was good while it lasted.
  • I (awkwardly) attended my first InstaMeet.
  • I got promoted to SSA.
  • I went kayaking and stand up paddle boarding for the first time.
  • I did a lateral transfer into another office at work and I absolutely love who I get to work for.
  • I got a rental car and drove around LA for the first time.
  • I tried eyelash extensions, getting my hair professionally dyed at the salon, and getting my nails did. (All firsts for this year!)
  • I got my second lobe piercings and a double cartilage piercing. (Mom did not freak out!)
  • I saw Zedd, David Choi, and Seven Lions live.
  • I went to my first Jingle Ball concert.
  • I completed two (2) 5k runs: The Color Run and Brazen (Almost) New Year’s Eve 5k.
  • I filled up my watch box.
  • I worked a little more actively as a second shooter for weddings.
  • I was introduced to the world of online dating, learned how to date again, and got my heart broken one too many times.
  • I bought a Kindle Paperwhite and started reading more. I completed 10 out of 12 books that I aimed to read.
  • I did not workout as much as I would have liked, but I learned to love my body more.
  • I started watching basketball more and finally know most of the names of Sacramento Kings players.
  • I cut my hair to shoulder length for the first time in years.
  • I cleaned out my room and let go of years worth of stuffed  animals, toys, and notes.

Despite all that has happened, I think the best thing that happened to me this year was learning to accept me for me. I am finally at peace with being introverted, the quiet one, and the one who is only willing to spend the time and energy for selective people. I am happy with the person I have become.

In 2016, I would like to:

  • sleep more.
  • read more.
  • find workouts I like and workout more.
  • travel to new territory.
  • get promoted or find a job where I can move to the Bay Area.

Bring it on, 2016!
