    I know the end of the year is typically a time where many people reflect on their lives and it's not uncommon for us to get bogged down in the shortcomings, slip ups, mistakes, overall bad predicaments, etc. But NT fam sometimes there's beauty in the struggle and something to be said for a person that's able to endure and keep pushing. I can't begin to type about my personal struggles without wasting the battery life on my phone right now. I've even shared some of my down moments with you guys on NT. The feeling you get when you know you overcame is indescribable. When you're able to look back on past circumstances and knowing you didn't let them get the best of you... It's among the coolest experiences you get in life. Don't let them get you down, brush off your crown and keep pushing. Stay blessed NT.

    At the end of 2014 I registered a couple of website names with the intention of opening businesses ... and it never panned out...

    I'm the CPO of my company

    I totally get it! Last year I started my own photography business in a new area and thought it would be great. This year I had to get a part time job for some extra cash because it wasn't taking off like I thought it would. But the past three months have been amazing and my business has been picking up and my only hope is that it continues throughout the new year.

    But I'm happy that a lot of people have made it out of their own funk this year, whether it be a professional funk, emotional, physical, or all of the above. We deserve everything good!

    Reflecting on this year, I left my old job, (hate it) found something better. Got a new bae after coming out a long term relationship. (February when we broke up) I'm really happy for the most part besides holiday shopping. 😤🤔 2016 we gonna flourish you guys #NTfamb

    Ouch. How did you survive that year? @Slighted

    I used to be so god damn broke like 4 years ago it took two years to pay off all my debts I racked up. My credit is still ******. Luckily I don't really need it, haven't really bothered to repair it either. :lol:
