Hello Nakama!

Happy New Year everyone! I don't know about you but this was the fastest year of my life. Feels like it was just yesterday it was Dec 31st 2014 now it's Dec 31st 2015. Regardless it was a good year. Just like any year it had its ups and downs for for me personally the pros out weighed the cons (first time for everything). So here we go time for me to review my 2015, I'll try to keep the personal stuff to a minimum.

Let's start out with a few negatives.

Sorry to be depressing to start out but just know it all gets better from here. The year didn't start out great for me as 3 months in I got released from my job. This past summer we lost one of our own, Nakama, the great Satoru Iwata president of Nintendo passed away. Just a few days ago for all us metal heads the grandfather of metal Lemmy of Motorhead also passed. Both great men of their craft both will be missed dearly.

But fear not children!

2015 was not all bad. In fact most of it was good. Although I had lost my job I had a wonderful summer! It was my second year at Too Many Games (a convention in PA), I went to Mayhem Fest here in Long Island and one week later I saw Slipknot with Lamb of God, Bullet for my Valentine and Motionless in White. I went on vacation with my family for the first time in a very long time and was able to complete a lot of games and anime.

A crazy October!

Besides having my favorite holiday of Halloween; October for me was pretty crazy. Thanks to being unemployed I was able to return my old job at the Bayville scream park (a Halloween themed park here on Long Island). I had a lot of fun and made some great friends as well as got together with some old ones. I went to a great metal fest known as Rock Allegiance in Chester, PA. I got to see my Meta make it all the way to the World Series, and lose, congrats Royals! By the end of the month I found a new job, one that I currently have and love. But the best part of October was finding an app know as Vingle!

@MissB82 thanks a lot, I'm glad this helped in some way. I like you're positive outlook on life.
I value a balanced outlook :-) Resilience and gratitude aren't learned from a life of all roses, but one with thorns also. Don't apologise for presenting yourself as more whole, than half. Well that's my opinion/advice anyway. I like how you've written it & I get good vibes from it so thanks for sharing as is. Sending bulk amounts of good luck & well wishes your way for 2016 :-)
@TerrecaRiley thanks so much! I hope you're 2016 is something great! I plan on keeping up the positivity as long as I'm here
@paulisadroid thanks a lot hope you're 2016 is filled with events and great things!
Awesome man, you did a lot more than I did, haha. But hey, everything can go up from here. Happy new year, bud!
