This year has transformed me into my extremely confident, crazy and fun self. I have grown month on month and honestly, from how it began, I did not see myself being anything like this at the end of the year. I have very few inhibitions now, I am filled with optimism like never before, I am a energy bubble that cannot be burst, I am nowhere near being lazy, I have calmed my temper down, I have not been involved in any major fights with people I care about. Phew! This list is never ending!

I am thankful to all the people currently in my life, you guys are the best!
I am also thankful to the people who left, because they took away all the negativity with them!

Thank you 2015, I wish 2016 is just like you or better! :D
