2015 was a year of exponential growth.
This year was a year full of firsts. Some bad, some good, some great...and all difficult, scary, and profound.
This final month of 2015 encompassed some of the year's most challenging moments, some of which include career moves, demanding school finals, shifts in personal relationships, and planning a cross-country move in the next few months (hopefully this explains the decreased activity on my blog this month...so sorry about it). I've been trying to take everything in stride and see that life decided I wasn't done learning and growing in 2015 yet.
I just found out that this weekend, someone I was best friends with for many years passed away in a horrific accident. He was only 25.
You guys...everything we know can change in an instant. Life is short and precious. Hold your loved ones close and let them know you care. Chase your dream. Don't let the haters break your spirit. Be kind to yourself. Travel. Cut off poisonous people. Do random acts of kindness. Get out of your comfort zone. Kiss the boy/girl/gender nonbinary crush. Make time for your art. Live every day like it's your last.
I love you. Make 2016 your year.
