The world witnessed me in my first year as an adult. Nothing burned down. No one was hurt (ok, no one was hospitalize on my account). Not only did I manage to get by, it actually turned out to be a pretty eventful year. A lot of new faces and first experiences. When I turned eighteen in twenty fifteen I thought I already knew everything there was to know. I found I was incorrect in this sentiment. I matured and grew far more than I ever thought I would in the span of twelve months. While I’m reflecting on this past year, I would like to share a few milestones and favorite moments from it.
April || First real job
When I was terrified on my first day, but I quickly became so fluent in my work that I received a promotion.
April || Prom
That time my best friend invited me to be her senior prom date and we were the only ones dressed in black.
May || Magic Man
The night that was so perfect it must have been fiction. How we went deaf from the speakers and rushed across the busy street.
May || Dystopian dream girl
When I buzzed my hair to a half inch (top right), kept it that way for two months before growing it out.
May || The Novel.
When I started writing the one piece I will actually finish.
July || Cleopatra
The time in the summer when I bought my first vehicle. It may be a little clumsy and slow, but it’s all mine.
July || Inked
When my friend and I spontaneously got tattoos.
September || Have you seen Borns?
When me and the gals were filled with emotion upon seeing The Lumineers and Borns.
October || Visiting Beeker
That time I was able to afford my own plane ticket to visit my sister. And all we did was wander around DC and drink coffee.
November || The mafia
When all of the siblings and their collected families were under one roof for Thanksgiving for the first time in years.
December || First Christmas
When I came home one night with a Christmas tree and decided this would be the year we celebrated it.
December || New Year’s Eve
When I thought no one was going to show up, but they all made it and we stayed up til two playing Monopoly.
Happy New Year everyone!
Bonus: All the lit Taco Tuesdays that happened.
