Picture This: Gratitude: Spending a Year with Amazing People

2014-01-05 1

What makes my year awesome are memories, and more importantly, the people who helped me build them.

For every passing year, I’ve always been thankful for the same reason—I’m thankful because I got to spend another awesome year with really amazing people. I will never get by on my own without my friends and my family. And I am pretty sure it’s the same for everyone else.

That said, I would like to introduce to everyone some of the people I’ve spent my year with.

These are the members of my family. We hardly have any pictures with the whole family in them but I do love taking candid pictures of them separately. They may not be the perfect family but they are the best for me.

These are my best friends from high school. We don’t see each other as often as before now but we always stick around for each other and we do hang out whenever we can!

These are my closest friends in college. We are all insanely weird hence we don’t have a problem getting along really well.

These are some great friends I seldom see in a year, but whenever we do meet we are always having the time of our lives.

This (though not really human) is my best friend who is also a brother to me. He helps me get by life, and helps me keep sane. I forget the feeling of being alone because he’s just there all the time, be it a bad or a good day.
