Hello 2016!

Last blog in 2014 - http://gonewithcua.blogspot.com/2014/12/live-enjoy-appreciate.html 

When I reflected in 2014 - http://gonewithcua.blogspot.com/2014/12/2014-has-been-interesting-year.html

Wow, I didn’t write in December at all! It was definitely a really busy month, but relaxing too. I worked in the morning, then shopped for about an hour and went home to relax after. I really took my own advice of getting rid of toxic people. I have about 30 minutes to write this, then 15mins to post and make edits! Leggo!

Feb - Met Joshua! :D He’s still soo awesome. I swear, it feels like I just met him some days.

- save. like, just save!

Although I do miss working part time, my full-time job income has been the greatest blessing in 2015. I feel stable. I can afford things. I can afford going to places. I get to live at my apartment and wash my dishes whenever I want to. That’s what having money means.

It’s been 2 years since I graduated with my bachelors. If I would’ve started my master, I would be done by now. Time really flies. I still can do it, but I just don’t want to pay for it. We will see.

I believe 2016 is the year I can finally save up for the next milestones in my life and go on adventures. I am very blessed to be in my situation. My only regret is that I didn't dream bigger when I was younger. My only dream was to go to college and I have achieved that. Now I need to find a new dream; maybe a master degree, a house, more youtube videos, business? I don't know, so many dreams and my wings can fly anywhere. I'm so grateful for everyone who has been a part of my journey. I am literally in tears as I finish this post. Thank you for reading.
