Do people really make New Year’s resolutions anymore? I’m sitting here, writing up my first post of 2015 and that’s what’s on my mind. I can’t help but think that a lot of people still do, but the real question should be if any of these people follow through with them or not.

It’s such an amazing feeling to be passionate about something in life, especially when it makes you happy.

Losing a loved one is never easy. Never. Last week, my grandpa passed away. He was a loving, funny, hardworking, and amazing man.
