Hello 2016!

2015 was one hell of a ride. It was a roller coaster with loops in the middle and some straight and curved paths here and there. All in all though, it was great. It has taught me several things and made me a better person. The 2014 me was weak and aloof, the 2015 me was brave and I hope 2016 will make me fierce.

2015 gave me some life lessons that I’ll carry with me through the rest of my life. Experiences that are both good and bad made me grow. I worked at a hospital with wonderful co workers who turned out to be my friends, who made me drunk for the first time, who knew my secrets, who played cupids but failed, who taught me everything there is to know about labor and delivery, who made me gain confidence through their words of encouragement.

I loved and it broke my heart at the end, I broke a heart or two along the way and thought that love isn’t for me. Life can surprise you anytime and love found its way back to me again just in time for Christmas Day. I hope that it will stay for quite awhile. I still believe in forever by the way. I’m a Libra and Venus is my ruling planet, goddess of love and beauty so being a hopeless romantic is in my veins.

This year was a year of firsts. First time a got a stable job online, first time I went on a Tinder date (lol it was one time and it was weird), first time I fell in love in real life after quite a long time, first time I got a paycheck from being a nurse, first time I went for a psychic reading, I can’t think of others but there were a lot of firsts.

I haven’t achieved all my 2015 goals but at least I can say that it was a great year. I hope 2016 will be even better.

Happy New Year everyone!

    Glad for you to achieve personal growth through the years! I know it’s not easy and little improvements are better than nothing. And I agree, it’s important that you learn the lessons from whatever that is happing from your life. It’s not just about the good or the bad things, but also giving thanks and learning lessons.
    You seem to fall in love easily! Slow down, and just enjoy. As they say, pag mabilis dumating, pwedeng mabilis din mawala.
    Wishing you a great 2016 ahead Alissa! 🙂

      Thank you! Yeah, well, I’m kind of picky too but when love comes my way, I embrace it. But yeah, what I had with someone was just purely online and we haven’t met but this guy, the new one is my 2nd boyfriend in person. haha. We’re taking things slowly. I hope 2016 will bring me luck on everything and for you too! Every hardships comes with a great lesson for me to learn so it’s all good. 🙂 Happy New Year!

    Happy happy new year Ali! 🙂
    Firsts are more special, at least for me, it marks the beginning of something.
    Something new and fresh.

    Cheers to a great year of more firsts. 🙂

    The year that was full of firsts for me was 2009. This year, it’s all about living a minimalist/simple life. Happy new year, Alissa! 🙂

      That’s great Mikyu! 🙂 Been trying minimalistic life now. So far, I haven’t spend on anything luxurious or not really needed.

    I also had a lot of firsts last year – even the psychic reading like you had! To more firsts in 2016! Happy new year, Alissa!
