Why Hel­lo, 2015

Hap­py New Year!

We head­ed up north for New Year’s Eve. I picked up my friend a lit­tle too ear­ly so we end­ed up spend­ing a lot of time at the beach before the oth­ers arrived. We got there around 14:00 and decid­ed that since we had noth­ing to do oth­er than wait for our oth­er friends, we might as well go on a lit­tle dis­cov­ery adven­ture togeth­er. We spot­ted a lit­tle cliff on the oth­er side of the beach and ambi­tious­ly decid­ed to go to the very top to see what it looked like. It took us a lot of strug­gling in the sand and end­ed up with sore ankles but we final­ly climbed up the hill and the 360 degree view of the water and land was amaz­ing. We sat there for a long while and took in the view. The sea breeze was blow­ing against our sun­burnt skin and cast a bright halo over the ocean. The far away land had a lit­tle misty haze that had lit­tle gold­en sparkles in it. The water con­tin­ued to glis­ten under the sink­ing sun but the wind became cool­er as the night arrived. We sat on the beach with our oth­er friends and wait­ed for the fire­works as we chat­ted.

Crowds began to form when dark­ness had tak­en over and night lights flashed amidst the warm con­ver­sa­tions and jol­ly laugh­ter of fam­i­lies and friends. The fire­works were mag­nif­i­cent but I shiv­ered so much from the cold I paid lit­tle atten­tion to the blasts and colours in the sky. We then head­ed over to my friend’s house for a count­down where we played card/video games and set up the tele­vi­sion 10 min­utes pri­or to the count­down with our lit­tle par­ty pop­pers in our hands. The clock hit 00:00 and we all hugged and went back to our games. It was a great day with lots of shared hap­pi­ness and I can only imag­ine how fun your days have been, too! I wish you all a very jol­ly and bril­liant 2015! I hope you all find your own hap­py place this year and achieve what­ev­er your heart tells you to. Be fear­less and live for your­self. Stay gold!
