Now I say this sincerely and with complete honesty, but the past year has flown by faster than I could have ever imagined. I have experienced so many things, both good and bad, but I have learned from it.
When January started, I was determined to stick to my New Year's resolution, which was have a stress free life, be fit, and stay healthy. Around April or May, I neglected my resolution, but hey, it happens! During the month of February, my family and I spent most of our free time buying new furniture or moving furniture over to our new house. In early March, we finally moved, and our new house was the house I have dreamed of for so long. April and a part of May, I spent a lot of my time studying for the upcoming AP exam, which I didn't do too bad on. Not too long after that, my grandparents from India visited us for a month. In late June to mid July, I went over to Chicago for a three week academic camp. I took a writing class (which I'll admit, was more boring than Twilight), a public speaking class (which I loved), a theater class (my favorite), and a coding class (also pretty exciting). I had one of the lead parts in the play for my theater class, and it was my first play, so I couldn't be more nervous, but it went well and it was really enjoyable. In early August, my "cousins" (it's a distant relationship; easier to call them my cousins :) ), who are two boys (ages 11 and 9) and a girl (12) came over to stay at our house for a week. Just as a project, we filmed a small action movie (green screen and all) during that week. It was amusing. School started in mid August and my life of stress and anxiety started all over again. But I have learned so much in school than I have ever before, which I am truly grateful for. Our robotics club season started in September and I joined the debate club, which was frightening at first, (and it still is) but I have come to enjoy it.
In the past year, I have learned so much, both knowledge wise and about life in general. Sure, I learned about the Agricultural Revolution, King Louis XIV, matrices, and Lewis structures, but I have also learned more about myself. I have found some time to do photography, my long forgotten hobby. I have become stronger, both mentally and physically (thanks, taekwondo).
2015 has been a blast for me and I would like to thank everyone who was a part of it.
Happy new year to all, and I wish you the best of luck for 2016. Make it a great year and be positive!
I will see you next year.
