Happy New Year! Can you believe it is already 2016? This blog has been a long time coming, initially this blog was supposed to have started almost 2-3 years ago, but a lot has happened. I have been putting this blog off for some time to focus on school and work, etc. I realized now that I probably procrastinated on this blog.
Well here I am, as this will officially be my first ever blog post on my blog. My name is Joshi Nicolas (Joshua Nicolas), I am the founder and creator of *The Polka Dotted* Blog. My friends would say that I am crazy for anything with Polka Dots! I have a polka dotted shirt, button-up, wallet, etc. The one thing I do not have is a full on polka dot suit (christmas wish list).
Looking back to 2015, it was filled with many ups and downs. My goal for 2015 was to travel more and it happened. I got to spend quality time with some fabulous friends in Seattle and got to visit some of my dream destinations such as London and Paris. I even got to enjoy a historic adventure up in northern British Columbia in a small mining town called Barkerville. Even with all these happy moments in my life, in endure some of the greatest hardships of my life, from wanting to drop out of University to losing my best friend in the whole world – Cookie (Shetland Sheep Dog). I appreciated everything that has crossed my path in 2015. I just want to say that no matter whats happens in life – even if you think it is the end of the world – just remember to appreciate your life – your freedom life – that was given to you and to LIVE to the most fullest that you can possibly can!
Cheers 2015 for a good run – hello 2016!!! I can not wait to see what you have in store for me – I do not care if it is good or bad – I am ready! I want to experience everything you have to throw at me – because living in the moment of good or bad is better than not living at all!
If things go really bad – just remember that you are not the only one in this planet is going through hardships – JUST SMILE!
It is simple as that. SMILE!
I sincerely hope that you have the most amazing year yet. And I can not wait to share what I have in store for you guys! Thank you! Cheers to 2016!
