Ups and Downs of 2015

2015, for the most part, has been a great year, but with a few downs that have made me stronger.

The ups:

  9. Had wonderful food adventures!
  10. Met up with old friends, such as Mr. Urbana-Champaign.
  11. Attended The Dog Cafe!!!!!! Snorlax is adorable!!! I’ma biteya!

The downs: 

  1. Was ripped off $745 to replace a door knob after I was locked out. When Shit Hits the Fan describes more the disastrous tale.
  2. My childhood friendships with Sad Bunny, Mr. Williamsburg, and Mr. Actor officially dead. ( Pictures of them shown above.)
  3. Wedding Snafu- I was invited to the wedding of Mr. Actor, but Mr. Squigglekins wasn’t, which made me pissed. Awkwardly enough, Mr. Squigglekins ends up invited to Mr. Actor’s bachelor party by Mr. Williamsburg. (Mr. Williamsburg and Mr. Actor are best friends, and Mr. Williamsburg was the best man at the wedding.) This resulted in  the end of the friendship with Mr. Williamsburg and Mr. Actor.
  4. Was asked to withdraw from student teaching, a combination of my fault and the incompatibility with my master teacher.

2016 Resolution: 

  1. Say no more often and be more assertive. My lack of assertiveness has led to my downfall one too many times this year and my life in general.

I’m excited for the New Year to start and I hope you are too!
