Today is the last day of 2017, tomorrow a new day, a new week, a new year.
Looking back, it was a year with good and sad things, but mostly good. I have learned a lot both academically and personally because you can always learn something new and you will never get too old for that.
The first half of 2017 was all about school, the last 6 months before I graduated. It was a bit hard at times, which I think all students can relate to, and hard work, but in the end, it’s all worth it! I remember how happy I was coming out of the exam room to Daniel and my mom, where Daniel put my graduation hat on me and I thought to myself, I did it! It was the best thing of 2017!
Before I graduated in summer, I used the most of Spring to apply for my dream education, to study photography. I didn’t get in this year, but I will try again in 2018, because you should never give up on your dreams, never. The sad thing about not starting on an educating this year was that Daniel and I had to move from the dorm, which we did in Autumn. But I guess there is a meaning with everything. Shortly after we moved I got fired from my job at Sephora, without any reason and just 2 weeks before my trial period ended. I was more angry than sad about that because I feel you have to be honest and tell them if something is wrong.
I still miss the view from our window at the dorm. We had the best sunsets.
After my job at Sephora I decided that I needed to do what I love and start taking more photos, which I did. I recently made my photographer homepage, click here to see it, and in 2018 there will be more photo shoots and creative projects.
2017 was also the year our little princess Indira turned 10 years, which is hard to believe because she is still our little cute baby.
Some of the sadder things in 2017 was that I had to start on my epilepsy medication again after having 2 seizures. I had really hoped that I didn’t need it anymore. Another one is that all of my half siblings have chosen not to have any contact with me anymore without any reasons, which made me really sad, but some people don’t appreciate family.
Through all this, good, bad and sad times, there has been one very special person by my side, someone I love more than anything, my Daniel. I don’t know what 2018 will bring, but all I need is Daniel by my side and we will get through anything together.
Happy New Year!
