It's become a tradition for me to always post this here =)
Looking back, 2014!me had an awesome year, but I'm thinking that 2015!me might have taken the cake.

This past year has been a serious, insane roller-coaster ride. I literally lost everything in the first week of January and had to come up with plans from scratch and keep myself motivated and on the right track- it was brutal, but it paid off. And today I'm looking out the window and there's snow- I'm finally where I've always known I was meant to be =)
It's not been, and it's not going to be sunshine and rainbows. Immigrating is hard as hell, I've never dared do something so bold before, but I'm damn proud of myself that I've made it.

Alright, but let's look back on the resolutions I made last year, and see if I was any good at them! Hahaha

Never been happier to cross something off a list. DONE.
This has been a New Years Resolution inside joke for years now, but IN MY DEFENSE this time I did finish the damn thing. However, I hated one plot decision I made and decided to scrap the last 15 chapters. So it's back to the drawing board. I TRIED THOUGH.
-Finish BH
Err. I was too busy? I think I got like... 1 new page in? Jesus
-Meditate every day
I'm recycling this one for 2016. This needs to happen. I did it, but not everyday, and much less than I wanted to.
-Be kind
Much like last year, there's so much room for improvement, but I'm more aware of myself, my words, and my actions, hopefully this translates to other people!
-Continue to follow Leonard Nimoy's advice, hah
Indeed I have and shall continue to do so. Also, rest in peace, honorary grandpa, you shall forever be missed.
-Try to find the time to do more personal art and/or write loads
I almost thought I hadn't done this one, but in fact I wrote over 20 chapters for The Academy this year, and that's a whole lot. Plus I managed to get 3 personal portraits done - not a whole lot, but compared to the last 3 years before that, it's a huge improvement!

Alrighty! 5/7 is not that bad, right? Hahahaha. Well, just the first one should count for everything, so there you go!
Now for the fun part, here are my challenges for 2016 me!

-Survive the Canadian Winter hah
-Score an awesome summer internship (fingers crossed! >< )
-Get back on track with my healthy eating habits - the stress of the past four months have really thrown me off
-Meditate every day, or as often as possible
-Take care of your health
-Continue to work hard and stick to budgets!
-Get a little writing done, cause you and I both know you miss your babies
-Be positive, be kind =)

Well, there you go! It's your turn, 2016!me, I'm counting on you!

What about you guys? Do you have any new year's resolutions?
Hope it all came true ;)

Cheers, y'all!
