Ode to 2016

Right now I'm sitting on the top bunk of my moist and kind-of-musty hostel and I'm so happy. I am content with the space that I'm in, mentally. This year has been filled with so much growth and I'm glad that I wasn't afraid to take risks because the reward has been so sweet. 

2016 the year that I realized that traveling was something that I felt deeply about. Travel begin to fill in the spaces between old painting hobbies and the occasional poem. I love those things too, but travel is new, fresh and soul-gratifying. I've never felt as mindful and in the moment living as I did this year on my travel journey.

I've seen so many places that I never once dreamt of. I've conquered new spaces and done things that I was told is too far fetched. This year I will keep pushing, reaching and actively do all that fulfills me.


I want to go harder, further and be better. 2017, I'm ready for the adventures. Happy New Year!

How did you grow in 2016? 




You. Me. Lunch. started as a saying between my best friend, Khaila, and I. It's been our way of saying 'see ya later' since we were seven years old. I guess you can say I'm an actual food baby.
