Here’s to a new year, new beginnings. Each year comes with ups and downs, happiness and sadness, success and failures. 2015 was another roller coaster ride for me, and I’m sure 2016 will be no different. I intend to accomplish at least some of my goals, if not all, find happiness in this world full of chaos, and enjoy the beauty in life. And to just simply be me and to always be a better version of myself. And these photographs by Eri Sakamoto are so perfect for my first post of 2016 – I can honestly say each and every photo is me, Samantha Mariko. Happy New Year.
