2015 and 2016

STroost_20150426_20352 Christmas

2015 is almost over and I can say that it has been quite a year for me with a lot of ups and downs. Despite I had a difficult year I did quite manage to make the most of it and I am proud on myself for doing so.

My year started very good. My relationship was not going that well at the end of 2014, but we managed to sort out all our problems and become a happy couple again and still now we are having a great relation. So you would say that 2015 would be a great year, looking at the start of it. Nevertheless it was quite the opposite.

In March I got a huge disaster on my path, the unexpected death of my father, who’m I loved very much. Even now we are still recovering from that and since that happened my relation with my sister got bad as well. But on the other side, my relation with my boyfriend became even stronger. He really helped me through this hard time and he does that even still.  I really learned who my real friends are and to who’m I can depend in hard times. Thanks for all those people who are still there for me!

In Juli I realized one of my biggest dreams, becoming a Firefighter. It is a dream I had since I was a little girl and it was one of the hobby’s my father and I shared. Unfortunately he never got to see in person that I made it. Nevertheless I know he would be very proud to see his daughter become the first female firefighter on the squat!

I also had the privilege to attend many events like: DTM race weekend in Zandvoort, Castlefest, Kamelot concert including Meet & Great, Marco Borsato’s Symphonica in Rosso concert, Disney in Concert and Nightwish concert. And in a week time I even go to the musical of Beauty and the Beast in the Netherlands. So you could say that, despite the loss of my father, I made the most out of 2015.

I hope to endure the positive things in 2016. I want to get back at my old level of waterpolo, so my training intensity has to go up. Specially my arm muscles and abs have to get stronger again. I also hope to complete my firefighters training this year. So I’ve got a lot of work to do this year. I even hope to get more time writing on this blog, since I have missed it this last month, due work.

For now I wish you guys a Merry Christmas and a very magical 2016!

Love, Selene
