How weird it is to type the new date… That’s something I’ll be getting wrong on papers for the rest of the semester…
It’s currently 3:25 am and I don’t feel tired at all, despite having worked a 9 hour shift on not that much sleep (totally starting the new year sleep resolutions off strong, eh?).
I didn’t get drunk, I didn’t throw confetti (an excessive amount, anyways) or light up sparklers.
The night was instead filled with chocolate… lots of chocolate (#newyearseatinggoalsstrikeagain), good friends, and a handful of board games accompanied by loud anime on the television (don’t….ask).
I’ve been on my own for the past couple days (I took a break from family to work…that’s rant-worthy in itself but it’s for another time) and it feels oddly satisfying, exhilarating, and lonely all at the same time.
I told myself I’d attempt to find myself in 2016. And in some ways, I think I succeeded. In others, not so much.
What would be super lovely would be to inch a little further on that same journey/goal in 2017.
But hey, we’ve got 365 days.
Plenty of time, and the exciting part
is that it all starts now.
