Daddy, I graduated! Did you see me Nae-Nae? You'd probably kill me if you saw it in person lol!
I also fell in love. Hard. I think you'd approve. :)
I parted ways with some old friends, which left room in my heart for several new ones.
I made the Buzzfeed homepage TWICE! And my blog's not doing so bad either.
I'm starting to take better care of myself. I started working out again, learned how to do a little make up, taking my vitamins everyday.
Mom is still, you know, my melodramatic East African mom. As for Joy, SHE GOT INTO COLLEGE ON A FULL RIDE! I know right! I wish we could celebrate with you over your favorite store brand Rocky Road Ice Cream.
And did you see the new supermarket down the street? Gentrification much, amirite? *nudge nudge*
2014 was a year of heartache and pain. A year of soul searching and defiance. A year of discovery and acceptance. Daddy, even though this year is a lot different from the previous 21 I've been on this planet, I asked the same question I do
every year: how did I make it through another year without you?
I miss you.
Your Big Girl
