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.
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:
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?
