Reflecting on 2016

As finals week approaches, some people are nervous and studying like crazy, and other people (like me) are just ready to be home for a month. With that being said, good luck to all of those that are spending late nights in the library, sacrificing sleep and your social life while praying that your GPA won’t be crushed too much. However, even if you study until you can’t study anymore and you still don’t get the grade that you wanted, think about how much fun you are going to have over break.

For many people, this is the first time that you have seen your family since Thanksgiving and although you might get sick of your family within the first 24 hours of being home, think of how amazing your own bed is going to feel and being able to sleep in until noon everyday with nothing to do but see your family and friends. Winter break is one of the best parts about being in college. No matter what holiday you celebrate, everyone celebrates New Years. I don’t know about you, but I have been planning my New Years Eve since I left for college and the time is finally here. But with that being said, the idea of leaving 2016 behind is overpowering.

So much has happened, even in the last couple of months, that I cannot even think about what happened all the way back in February. When reflecting back on 2016, I think about everything that happened in order to make 2016 what it was. With the help of my friends, traveling, family, and school, I would say that my 2016 was a pretty eventful year. However, I cannot wait for 2017 to come. I have so much already planned for 2017 and although the election did not have the outcome we had all hoped and wished for, that is just part of what is going to make 2017 interesting.
