Wow! We made to 2016!! The New Year is like the flower pictured above. It is fresh and beautiful. So many promises that the new year of 2016 holds. So many things to learn. So many things yet to come. I know 2015 might have been a hard year for some of you,including me, but now 2016 is a good year to start again.
Like what I said in the picture, 2016 is "to learn from our mistakes, to serve, and to enjoy life" This year you can have a fresh start and be motivated to try new things and "do hard things"* My "hard things" still are how to have self-control on Internet or else it can literally ruin your life, to be patient, to trust in God, and not to procrastinate.
What I have learned in 2015 and all the years before
Wow! 2015 is officially over. I learned A LOT of things over the years.
Although I'm not going to reveal my real age, since this is the Web, you can say I'm a Christian teen. (Sorry about that,Faith. I would say, but I don't think I should.).
