365 of 365

cheesy title alert! ~ these photos are snapshots of the last day of 2k15, ~ enjoy the journey. ~

At last I can breathe a sigh of relief as the sun sets on the wondrous year of 2015. Usually I'm not
really that bothered; I remember the transition from 2012 to 2013 being very slow and boring - everything was in a state of flux, and 2013 was actually  a disastrous year. 2014 started off with a bang, I just remember feeling happy - still behind, still unknowing, still narrow-minded - but somewhat content. It turned out to be an alright year but combined with a v. small percentage of amazing experiences, most of it was exhausting; there were new friendships, new ideas, new people, new perspectives. A very varied year.


But nothing compares to 2015. Twenty-fifteen; the year when things actually mattered. Well it felt like that anyway. It felt as if every small decision I made secretly had an impact on my future, every little action too. 2015 was a very big year for "firsts": first real crushes, first kisses, (*rolls eyes*) and many more. I'll never forget the feeling of finishing exams. It was an early morning exam and looking back it was over in a blink. I remember running out of the school building, embracing the fresh air because I felt free, running because I had no responsibilities. Best feeling ever.


I met a whole bunch of new people during the summer, went out a lot, did some interesting things. I cannot wait to tell my children in the future so they think I was some rebellious teenager back in the old days.


I kept a diary. I didn't write in it everyday nor did I begin my entries with "Dear Diary", but it is the most valuable and accurate depiction of my year. Pictures capture memories in one shot, but a diary is the deeper meaning behind it. What I felt, what I saw, what I thought. I think it's brilliant to be able to see the person I can become when my emotions get the better of me. Who annoyed me that day because of something stupid. Why I'm tired, happy, upset, stressed. I'm excited to look back in the future.


Let's not forget about the MUSIC. Oh my god, the music! I have to say, Kali Uchis's album, Por Vida, had to be the most exciting new discovery for me on the musical spectrum. It's been played on repeat like no other. Pure gold.

                        


I am determined to make 2k16 a bomb ass one. I hope everyone descends into two-thousand-and-sixteen (it even sounds futuristic and alien) with a pure heart, ambition and positivity. The new year is the finest time for a fresh start, so embrace it with open arms.









I took the long route back from an outing so that I could snap these last memories.
I'll probably look back on these photos this time next year thinking how much I didn't know, how different I looked. Who knows what I'll be thinking when I look back  in memories on something so present to me now?
I'll also be opening my 2k15 good memories jar that I bought at the beginning of the year. It's filled with tiny memories of good days and fun events from January to December. I can't wait to look through them in the evening and fuel myself with good vibes as 2k16 falls upon us.





The sky was so blue today. A sharp, biting wind and flashes of welcoming sun every now and then. The air smelt and felt so fresh and pristine and surroundings were mellow and quiet.

  1. These sort of posts are my favourite. I'm going to join you on entering 2016 a pure heart, ambition and positivity. Also, I need to thank you eternally for introducing my to Kali Uchis because I can honestly say, my life is now better. My sister is also indirectly thankful. I'm wishing you all the best for 2016, Zoe, all the good vibes, fun adventures, everything. Happy (almost) New Year! All the love! X
