NYE 2016

First written words of 2016! Of course, if you exclude the “Happy New Year” texts I sent out to the people I forgot to message last night. So Happy New Year to all of you and Happy Sweet Sixteen to the millennium! Hope this year is sweet to us all.

I love it when people think that my night was crazy because I live in Las Vegas. Clearly you don’t know me at all. But if by crazy they mean the desert I had at midnight, then, yeah, things got pretty wild. Just imagine a layer of ice cream, topped with a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting a covered by a spoon of Nutella. Then double that image and add chocolate syrup to that. My New Year’s resolution is, therefore, to get new teeth; I’m not sure those babies will live much after a brutal sugar attack like that one.

Here I am at midnight giving my one true love a kiss, or as my generation refers to the significant other, bae. Yes, pizza is bae!

My night was cozy, consisting of food, movies and wine. I was disappointed though. My plan was to get drunk beyond reason. I started drinking at 5:00 p.m., and eleven hours later I wasn’t even tipsy. Perhaps my wine has been sitting in that fridge for too long. I’m glad I didn’t have to work on New Year’s Eve though, it’s one of the perks of the job I recently got (more on that in a future post).

Another photo of me and bae just hanging out. We just can’t keep our hands off each other.

As I do every time on the last day of the year, I gave myself some quiet time to reflect on the past 365 days of my life and assess my own progress. Man, what a year it’s been! With so many ups and downs, failures and achievements, spurts of news dreams and things crossed of the bucket list. I got to visit New York City and some parts of California, I modeled in four different states, I starred in a short film, and got a job. There were bad times, financially and otherwise. And let’s not forget the bad dates I went on; those are worthy of a saga of their own.

Here I ma behind the scenes on one of the photo shoots and the film set:

Here are some photos of my trip to NYC. The last one was taken in California.


On the writing front, I wasn’t as productive as I was in 2014, but I still managed to finish a few short stories, screenplays and edit my book which was a tortuous ordeal that is yet to end. I am today in a completely different place that I was last year, and last year I was in an entirely different place than I was the year before. The road is long, but I’m positive I will get there.

What about you? How would you assess your 2015?

  1. My 2015 was not that great. I lost two jobs, but somehow managed to bounce back. I’m only a year into my marriage, but my wife supported me through the whole ordeal. She is such a strong, talented woman.
    When I got my current job, things perked up, but it was so late in the year, it was overshadowed by the bad days.
    I’m happy that 2016 is here and I’m ready.
