Ta-dah! I made it! Another buzzer beater before 2016 ends 🙂 I actually had this photo ready for about two weeks now. It was taken by Jason right after our office Christmas party. I really like it so I decided I would make it my last self portrait for the year. For some reason it gives me the feeling of hope, which is exactly what I want for the upcoming year.
I know that a lot of people have said that 2016 was a terrible year, but personally it was one of the most amazing and memorable years of my life. We had our share of unfortunate events (we lost two members of our family during the first quarter of 2016), but we were also showered with plenty of blessings. This was the year that I forced myself to be more adventurous and experience new things, and I have so much to show because of it. I learned so much about myself these past few months and I believe I’ve grown a lot as a person. I also met some amazing people this year, and for that I’m very grateful. 2016 – you had your ups and downs, but overall I am a better person because of you and for that I thank you.
