It has been almost a year since I posted my first post on this blog and I hope I still keep my readers interested 🙂
Though, it is not my intention to gain viewers or to ”entertain” through my blog. If you read my very first post you’ll find out that I started it for me. I wanted to stop in the midst of the busy-ness of life and look back on what I have been through so far. I am posting because when I’m older, I want to look back and remember all of the things I have done in my youth, as I won’t remember them all.
As most of you know, I’ve spent NYE in LONDON, yes!
Mekdes, Michelle and I took the earliest train on December 31, 2013 and left for the airport in Amsterdam. We arrived at approx 9.30 AM, England time. When we finally got to our hotel we had some lunch and got ready right away to start celebrating.
Now, you may guess that if we had arrived that early and started dressing up almost right away, we’d be in town quite early…you guessed right! We were standing in front of the London Eye and next to the Big Ben at 6 PM. This would mean we had to wait 6 HOURS before new year……..and so we did.
It was extremely crowded and I heard there were about 250,000 people waiting for the fireworks. Pretty neat to know I was one of them, hehehe.
During those 6 hours we met tons of people, saw and heard bunch of things, danced, laughed and got bored.
Here are some pictures and videos to give you an indication of what I’m talking about. I have one resolution for this new year and I will share it with you by the time this year has nearly come to an end. Cheers!
The view from our hotel room, we could see the London Eye and the Big Ben.
Pretty cool that the moon appears on the 2nd photo.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
