To me, it was merely a year of change. Having the chance of studying abroad for one year has been a great opportunity to meet people from different horizons, backgrounds and culture. I am overall not really satisfied with how this semester went on on the academic side, but on the other side I have got what I really wanted : change. Changing from this everyday luxury and laziness, and fighting them to fulfill my great will to see the world and to learn how people live. On this point, this semester has taught me very much and brought the change I needed. I will now try to make next semester even better by optimizing the academics.
Feels like most of what happened in 2014 before the departure happened ages ago ; but overall how I feel about the New Year is that it's going to be great if it were to follow 2014's crescendo.
I wish you all a Happy New Year! May it be full of surprises and joys every day, and bring change and/or stability to your life depending on what you need! But remember one thing : YOU are most often the one who makes a year great or not.
Let's rock this new year together!
Verrrrry best wishes to you all,
Aaaaand I can't help to yell an enormous THANKS to all these friends who have been following me here for so long, despite the non-answers and sometimes dreadfully long absences. Please, please go and check out their wonderful work.
Thank you for your kindness and patience in any occasion.
Thank you for sometimes disappearing - but always coming back. And for the inspiration, man. You know what I mean.
Thank you for visiting in Europe and welcoming in Canada - and for holding on.
All the rings of hellThere are different levels of the closeness and understanding of a friendship.
There are those people around whom you are almost as masked as around strangers. You might talk about personal matters, but it's all very superficial. These are the ones that you might assemble to have fun or just generally mess around a bit. They're on the outer fringes of friendship, just a little more than acquaintances.
There are those closer friends, ones who know you better, who you might talk to or meet with relatively frequently. They know more about you, and it's harder to hide the facts from them, but they don't necessarily know the reasons behind those facts. They are the ones you may know from school or work. They're around, they might say a nice thing to you here or there, you and they can comfortably talk one on one sometimes, but still, you only really know the surface of each other.
Then there are the ones that know you well, but that you still wear the mask around. You could expose yourself,
Thank you for your maturity and great appreciation of art, which really lead us ahead to you.
And thank you to all of you wonderful artists for the great inspiration and delight ;
