This was a tough year for Brazilians, 2015 marked the peak of our political crisis, in which our corrupt politicians point their fingers unceremoniously to cast doubt and raise a sandstorm that will take the accusations away. This political crisis affected the economy as investors began to distrust the country and took a French leave.
Inflation is going up, so as the goods’ prices. Oil price declined all over the world, yet gas price went up. My electricity bill raised 120%. One hundred and twenty f*cking percent. The best way to summarize 2015 for every Brazilian is that every price rose and our consumption power nosedived.
Yet this year was great.
I’ve quit smoking earlier this year, March 26. I fought against depression and I feel much better now. I lost my grandmother to Alzheimer’s and I’m glad to close my eyes and picture her joyfully growing roses in her garden.
I watched more movies. Plenty more. I feel like I’m starting over and I’m delighted for it. I’m more dedicated to spare time doing the things I love to do but I still feel time is too short.
That’s my wish for 2016: more time to love more.
And write more.
Thank you for following me in this wonderful year.
