2015: The Good, The Bad And The Future

Hey. Did you miss me?

I must admit that I never forgot about you, The Wandering Rose. I’d guilt myself weekly, knowing that every time I turned on Netflix or started a new game, I could have been blogging. To be fair, a lot of the time I’ve been preoccupied with responsibilities previously unknown to me, such as job hunting and house maintenance but that’s just the kind of year it’s been – busy and…well…adult. In 2015, I turned a new leaf but I never forgot about the roots that kept me grounded.

First, let’s see what Google has to say about the matter.

The Good
1. Iceland
An attempt to capture the magic and adventure of my first solo trip in just one, short paragraph is futile. From the Northern Lights to the pub crawl nights, Iceland was raw discovery (both of land and self) from start to finish. Wow. Just…wow.

2. England/Wales/Scotland Roadtrip
Despite catching a cold early on, my fourth return trip across the Atlantic (and M’s first time outside of North America) was a grand success. Not only did I get to play tour guide to M and reunite with friends and family, but I also got to be a tourist myself, viewing the U.K through a different lens.

3. Moved out with M
On the day of our fourth anniversary, M and I got the keys to our first apartment. We now reside in a cosy 1 bedroom sixplex in downtown Burlington and couldn’t be happier. Some things are worth the wait.

4. Adopted a cat
Murph

This is Murphy.

M and I had been living together a month before I started to pine for a feline friend. Katie had stayed with my parents and for the first time in 18 years, I found myself desperately and miserably cat-less.  A house isn’t a home without a cat, after all. Using some (not so subtle) encouragement techniques, I managed to persuade M to visit the local humane society with me. Cue Murphy: an adorably squeaky and mischievous black cat. The rest, as they say, is history. Murphy now completes our little family and is one of the most important anchors in my life.

5. My Brother’s wedding
I’ll always remember 2015 as the year I gained a sister. My older brother – my only sibling – exchanged vows at the picturesque Westfield Heritage Village on a brisk, cloudy October afternoon. It couldn’t have been a more fitting ado for such a cozy, intelligent and eccentric couple. I was honoured to stand with them at the alter as bridesmaid and will never forget that perfect day for the rest of my life.

The Bad
1. Job hunting
Nobody said the post university job search would be easy and yet I never expected it to be so difficult! It has been almost 13 months since I finished my degree. 13 months of agonizing, demoralizing and tedious searching for something…anything that will start me on the career ladder but so far, the desert is dry. In 2016, may the search be quick and painless.

The Future
1. Las Vegas/Grand Canyon
A long time ago, in a basement not far away, M and I made a promise: for our 5 year anniversary, we would visit Las Vegas and tour the surrounding area. The years march forever onward and now that time is almost upon us. Vegas, baby, here we come!

I'd much rather be here...

2. Employment
Please? Pretty please?

3. Another trip?
After two holidays to cooler climates last year, I think it’s about time I get my tan on! An all-inclusive is just what the doctor ordered although the probability of sun, sand and sea very much depends on the previous subsection (re: employment).

There’s only 364 days left in 2016. Let’s make it one to remember.
