Needless to say, it was a long year. Inspired by @kaitlynvella, @ListPrompts
  1. January
    21064376 3f82 47db 8ee4 3a3ad53650dc
    January was, as it always seems to be, about new beginnings. I arrived just after midnight in LA, for a funeral. I had spent my new year somewhere over the Midwest. I was ready, for new things. To grow up.
  2. February
    31eebd25 6d66 47db a3a1 e718eed08b67
    February was about home. School isn't home. But things like Fridays, friends, and flowers get me through.
  3. March
    97772da2 0315 484a ab68 4aa3f9f09532
    March was about old friends in old places.
  4. April
    84a506f2 8461 486a b9a1 61c7e8968b4f
    April was about new friends in new places.
  5. May

    May was all about the aesthetic.
  6. June

    June was a break. The calm before the storm.
  7. July

    July was the hardest month of my life, to date. July 22, 2015, the hardest day. From this point, I spent more time in hospitals than I would care to admit, trekking on the A from NYU at my full time job all the way up to Columbia Presbyterian. This photo was taken at the Neuro-ICU at Columbia Presbyterian.
  8. August
    Be1484b2 285a 49b8 8153 f201777cddcc
    August was about finding normalcy, moving forward, going back to work. Finding happiness and solace and peace working with my students, in a routine that would include the hospital, the doting, everything.
  9. September
    0d6ee1f7 3191 474b 8bf6 b3ef6a6b2272
    September was about going back to me, going back to school, trying to occupy some space in my own life that had been pushed out due to more pressing, more important other matters.
  10. October
    F5ec4a72 8d17 4010 a72c 6e8b7759e134
    October was going back to my favorite places, at home. Finding comfort in what had become scary over the past summer. Remembering my love for people and places and things in my life that JD taken a backseat.
  11. November
    09d8ee46 6df3 49b6 8ce3 996b035552ad
    November was about being alone, trying new things, becoming a new person, who was shaped by the events she had overcome and the ones she was working through.
  12. December
    E25a419e 1dbd 4d5c a06a 26a1bdce9576
    December was about all these things: coming home to it being completely different, falling back in love with my friends, my home, and the life I had once had. But trying my hardest to still incorporate new fragments of my life. I think I've done an ok job. Here's to more, here's to 2016.
