2018: Here I come!

HAPPY NEW YEARS!

Well, it’s been an interesting year, with ups and downs. There were moments where I was bouncing out of my chair in excitement, and there were moments of total self-doubt that forced me to curl up in a ball and cry.

Within my home country of New Zealand, 2016 saw multiple earthquakes, massive ones that have changed the landscape of the country forever. Just when we thought that it was all over, it would start up again. Six years of quakes… And the scary thing about all of it is that we’ve become desensitized to them. Now we need to experience big ones before anyone actually react; we get a 5.0 and we just carry on with our coffee and conversations.
