Tomorrow it'll be the last day of 2015 and I'm currently sitting here, wondering what the hell happened.
Time seems to go faster every year and I don't like it at all. I once read somewhere that this is because one year is a smaller fragment of your life as you age. For a 5-year-old one year is 1/5 of his life, while for me it's 1/19. I have no idea if this is true, but it wouldn't surprise me.
I'm trying to think of my highlights of 2015, and I must say that it has been a good year for me. I matured a lot and sort of got my life together? I think? I'm not sure. But it feels like I did.
Let's start with the very first highlight, which happened in March, Because in March I got my driver's licence.
I still have no idea how the hell I did it and why on earth anyone would let me go on the road on my own, but hey, I don't make that decision. I haven't driven as much as I thought I would, but that's mainly because I have to share the car with my dad and because I don't really go anywhere. Though one of my smaller highlights was when I drove to the other side of the country in May. Which was quite scary because I hadn't driven that far before yet. Hopefully I get to drive more, because I still don't fully trust myself. It really is a miracle that I haven't had an accident yet..
Okay, moving on the the next highlight, which was May 28, when I asked my crush to be my datefriend. Ze said yes, which is also a miracle. Ze lives in the UK and I live in the Netherlands, so it's not always easy. But together we make it work.
That brings me to my next highlight in August, when I went to visit hir. I was very nervous and excited and just thinking about makes me all khsadfshfjsha.
It was great and afterwards I realised I love hir even more, but I also missed hir more.
Also in August, like 3 days before I went to the UK, I moved out. I don't really have my own place though. It's because my university is an hour by train away from my home I decided that I should move out. I'd been travelling 2 hours a day to university for 2 years straight, and I was completely done with it. So I made a financial plan (sort of) and started looking for a room I could rent. I soon found a flat which I would have to share with 3 other people, but I was completely fine with that. I only visited once before deciding that I wanted the room. One thing led to another and now I've been living on my own (sort of) for 4 months. I really surprised myself with it, because I didn't think I would adapt so easily. But I love having my own place, and although I miss my parents I wouldn't want to go back. I visit them every other weekend, and that's more than enough.
At the end of August I opened up my own jewellery store (curiouscrescent.etsy.com), which, if I'm completely honest, I haven't done much about. But I already have plans to renew a lot of things and make it much better.
Let's see... In October and November I saw Fall Out Boy and Twenty One Pilots live, both for the second time. And on November 30 I turned 19.
I think the only other highlight was a week ago, when I went to see my datefriend again. We've been dating for 7 months now and it was so good to see hir again. I really missed hir and we had a lot of fun.
I don't know what 2016 will bring, but I'm really hoping to improve my store. Also I'm looking forward to starting my internship in September (I don't know where I'll be an intern, though). I just hope it'll be just as good, if not better than 2015. And I hope all of you who took the time to read this will have a great 2016 as well.
Not those who stopped reading halfway through. Screw those people.
Lots of love <3
