2016. Another year, another chance at starting afresh… New year, new me and all that Jazz. Well, for me this new year doesn’t feel new at all. Just feels like we moved on to a new month as we always do. The only thing that makes me feel like this is actually a new year is the fact that it is my birthday month, so with a new year, always comes the reminder that I’m about to turn a year older – yet again. As if I was meant to stop getting older at some point haha…

Thinking: gosh if I had a dollar, not even a penny, for my thoughts… I’d be able to buy that bike I’ve been wanting. Thinking on A LOT.

Mostly thinking that life has a funny way of teaching us some harsh lessons man.
