Still riding the high of finally turning 20, I’m grateful. I thought 2014 would never end because it was a year of intense growing pains. I had to take everything I thought I knew and set it on fire and in the process I had three nervous breakdowns and I rediscovered God, so now I’m in a better place, and I know that it’s time for me to rebuild.
This year, I want to beat the beast that is the second year of medical school.
I want to smile more, actually, laugh more and worry less about things that are not in my control. I intend to take up more projects that push me to develop my writing skills. I want my work to be featured in an anthology, I want to get a job that I absolutely love and that pays and I intend to be the best logistics person that Lionmen (my band, sorta. Reverbnation.com/lionmen #ShamelessSelfPromotion) will ever have.
I also want to travel, to South Korea. Don’t ask why, I don’t know either. I want to cook more. I also want to fall in love with myself. I’m done with explaining away my quirks and I’m ready to embrace them because my quirks make me who I am.
I have also decided that I’m not going to be held down by fear of the unknown anymore. I’m going to be a better friend this year and an all round better person- actually, I’m working towards being the best version of me that there is in the world. I want to lose weight this year. I don’t necessarily need to, but I want to, just because.
Well, peace, love and good food.
Have a wonderful 2015.
