How I started to hate snow (but not really)

First day commuting during winter and snow~! I woke up super excited (if a little tired, and nervous about work today as I had to participate in a quality audit in the morning, eek!), and then I got ready! Packed my backpack with work clothes, keys, phones and then some soaps. For once I had been wise and checked my locker at work during Friday to see what I had there, and the shampoo and shower gel were starting to run low, so new ones were needed! I also double checked I had my bike lock and key before getting dressed.

This year even more so, as there is something happening really soon that I booked during the first week of January 2015. Then it felt like the day would never come. But more about that a little later.

So! What happened in 2015? Simply put, the year was pretty great. I’m so glad I participated in the Project365 for a second time (a picture each day) after all. The pictures are very useful now when looking back, let me tell you! So much happened that I already forgot they even happened last year. Let’s take a look at the most memorable things.
