Very very sorry to hear that. Trust me, there's hope for everyone. Just don't let this bring you down, you and your siblings have to be brave and do your best, do it for your mom, she wouldn't like you to be sad.
I had to say this because your comment touched me when I read it. My best wishes to you and your family! :)
Now, the main topic: my thoughts about 2014.
I think it's been a great year, my dad managed to stay in his work for another 5 years so that's great! My mom was also promoted so my parents are happy. Moreover, they've bought a lawn so maybe next year they'll start to build a new house and we'll move to that place (which is also a better place! :D)
This is also my last year of school! I'm excited to go to college, but I'm also sad because I'll miss my friends A LOT, and I'm not going to be in the classes with my best friend, so that makes me really sad. Hopefully, we'll stay in contact by internet. I'm also really excited for the prom night. I'm sure it will be one of the most memorable nights of my life!
Next month I'm turning 17, and next year I'll be 18! Wow, time passes so fast... My mom wants me to go abroad and work, so I can get some money to help them pay things, so I'm hoping to go to Europe in January-February 2016.
And another thing, I LOVE Ghost Stories, one of my favorite albums by Coldplay. I really hope they'll release a new album next year, together with my other two favorite bands: Muse and Radiohead (although the last one isn't confirmed). Oh, and also Imagine Dragons, I have high hopes for them.
I'm also getting to know Kodaline, I think it's a really good band, and it reminds me of Coldplay so, I really like it!
Regarding the lows; my aunt is suffering from arthritis, which is a very painful disease, sometimes I hear her cry, I really hope she gets better.
Also, I tried to get a scolarship for a college in my city, but I didn't manage to get it, so that's a big dissapointment, but it's not the end of the world, I will try to help my parents to pay my studies.
All in all, it's been a great year so far, and I really hope this year and next remain like this, or maybe something special can happen... who knows? maybe Coldplay or another good band giving a concert in/near my country next year? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
