My favorite part of last year was my birthday/sister trip to Savannah, Georgia. I’m realizing now how much I enjoyed exploring a new place, drinking, and eating good food with my best friend. I wish I could collect checks doing just that. We stayed in downtown Savannah so everything was close and inviting. The first day we had our very first Savannah meal at a The Goose Cafe. They had good food and an even better atmosphere. We went in December so the streets and restaurants were covered in Christmas spirit. I felt like I was in a holiday movie for real. After breakfast, we checked into our attractive ass, cozy ass, conveniently close to everything ass Air Bnb. We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a nice kitchen to ourselves for two nights! Plus our broke asses finally had cable again and had the opportunity to watch a lot of Spongebob. That’s why this trip is so special to me, to be honest; the Spongebob. Just kidding. The way we didn’t really stress about what we were going to do next is what makes traveling with my sister so great. We were just going with the flow. We drank some wine and then had dinner at a haunted place called Moon River. They were even featured on Ghost Adventures and our waitress had some stories to tell. She said one of her coworkers kept getting calls from her dead brother while she was at work, but only when she was working. A few people have also experienced some things like being touched and even seeing apparitions. We came for the ghosts but stayed for the food and drinks. They have the best bean burgers I’ve ever had. It’s probably the best bean burger I will ever have. The fries and ranch were so good too! Five stars, guys, I’m telling you. After dinner, we went to the local Walgreens and got the supplies to make my birfffday cake. Making that cake was one of my favorite parts. You can actually watch us make it right here. (That’s my sister’s channel. She’s funny too! Support her!!) The next day had the same level of tranquility. All we did was walk all over Savannah and eat when we found a good vegetarian-friendly place. We visited Forsyth Park too. It’s huge! Everybody looked happy to be alive. People were walking their dogs and throwing balls around in the fields, real happy shit. We found a lil grocery store, bought some lunch, and just basked in the park’s glory. After lunch, we walked around more and found some cute neighborhoods. All the houses are pretty impressive. They’re old but impressive. I felt like I lived there. I think the rest of that day was more eating and drinking. Every morsel of food that passed these lips was delicious. I love vacations. On the third day, we had to leave the beautiful apartment and go to a hotel. We spent most of the day in the room watching Christmas specials, laughing, and drinking more wine. I’m so grateful to have someone in my life that enjoys the simple things as much as I do. Love you, sis. We had to leave the next day so we were walking around with our luggage. That was a little annoying but we basically just Starbucks hopped until it was time to go to the bus station. Wow, I almost forgot that the bus left without us when we got to Orlando. That was kind of annoying also. Luckily, we were able to get on the next bus and still got back early. Well, that’s my favorite part of 2016. I can’t wait until the next destination. Thanks for reading!! Peep my instagram for some picture/videos.
2016 was a pleasant change. The last few years have been challenging, to say the least. In 2015, I lost somebody in a way that I don’t think I’ll ever fully bounce back from. I got hurt and dammmnnnn did it hurt. I got my heart stomped on and it almost ruined my year. The future was foggy, but hope is a strong emotion. My resolutions are usually pretty similar, but 2016 had to have a different vibe. I had to set different goals because 2015 was a different year. How could I make me better in 2016? It’s incredibly obvious and I’m mad I didn’t think of it sooner! Positivity. My most important resolution was to look on the bright side. I wanted to train my brain to take negative thoughts and either throw them aside or convert them to positive ones. I had to tend to my broken heart and, more importantly, my mental illness. If there was no way to make a thought or situation good, I thought about future things I could get excited about. I continued to learn about hope in 2016. It’s funny because I’ve always done the positive thing, but for other people. Not until I came face to face with the worse sadness (in my opinion) any human could submit to, did I finally implement positivity on myself. It was the second best thing to ever happen to me. Now, I don’t dwell on the past and I try my hardest not to dwell on the unknown. I’ve honestly never been happier. No matter what bullshit is going on in my life, I’m still happy because I make myself feel that way. I’ll never forget 2015 because of the heartbreak, but I’ll never forget 2016 because of the joy.
