Having Hannah throw up on my favourite pair of boots. Wandering home through an empty city at 4AM. Getting up at 5 AM and watching Canada take home gold in hockey at the Winter Olympics. Spending Valentine’s Day with all the single ladies. Waking up with hundreds of four leaf clover stickers all over me after St. Patrick’s Day. Trying to cook scalloped potatoes in a microwave in a dorm room (and failing). Staying up until the wee hours of the morning in order to watch my favourite hockey team play, despite having to wake up early for class. Finding my roommate passed out, cuddling a burrito. Feeling homesick and getting funny videos of friends back home. Finding anything and everything to do other than studying during exam time. Having my first snow days. Ryan Gosling ripping my heart out after having a baby with Eva Mendes.
Driving around in the car blaring Taylor Swift and singing at the top of our lungs. Marathoning John Hughes movies whilst eating our weight in pizza and cookie dough. Crying over cheesy movies and saying goodbye (even if it was only until Christmas or summer). Drinking so many bellinis we lost count, which made us believe doing karaoke or dancing like fools was a good idea. (It so was.) Quitting my job after three years and never feeling freer. Sleeping outside underneath the stars and watching the sunrise. Sneaking onto the beach after hours and jumping in freezing cold water, shivering all the way home. BBQ’s where we forgot to actually barbecue. Realizing I don’t have to have it all figured out. Losing touch and catching up months later to see nothing’s really changed at all. Forgiving and forgetting, or at least trying to. Creating new dreams and finding old ones again. Moving into my first ever house. Being so broke and having to live off of peanut butter sandwiches for two weeks. Sneaking into parties we weren't invited to. Screaming and kisses and tight hugs. Tears and sadness, anger and madness. Feeling hurt and alive. Having the broken pieces put together by those who always stick around. Making new friends, losing old ones and still moving on.
Here's hoping you all have the most wonderful NYE, and an even better year! I hope you'll all continue to follow me on this crazy journey. Catch 'ya on the flip side!
