2016 is over. It is crazy to type that. I remember writing last year’s recap. I mentioned so many different things that aren’t even relevant to my life now. It’s so crazy to observe how one year can change someone. I am not the same person I was last year, and I will definitely change this year.
In 2015, I turned 16. Now I am 17 years old. That is so crazy. Also, I finally got my driver’s license, so if any of you think you will not be able to get your license just remember I passed my driver’s test– and I am a nervous wreck when I drive.
This year, has been such a blessing. I have been able to experience so many wonderful things– and share these experiences with people I love.
Remember I went to California? Disneyland and and Universal were definitely some of my favorite theme park experiences.
College applications were a big thing in my life in 2016. I am so excited for the future. So many positive remarks in this post, right?
One of the best experiences I had this year was going on a trip of a lifetime with some wonderful friends. Growing up I would always watch movies with the plot surrounding a group of friends going on a getaway over break. This year, I got to have a first hand experience. In December, I went to the Eastern Caribbean with two close friends (and one wonderful chaperone). We ate food, visited beaches, and had a blast. I will post something soon with more details. I am so grateful for that opportunity. Ahh, it was so memorable.
I also went to Canada, which was also memorable. I got to experience the cold icy winter that Texas refuses to bring (which I am thankful for because while I love the cold… I think I’ve had enough). I will make a separate post with some travel pictures and details soon.
I know this year has been very sporadic with my posting. It just irks me to think about all the missed posting and lack of baking. Hopefully 2017 will bring lots of desserts, and more posts in general.
A new thing I’m planning for 2017, is more lifestyle/college posts. I want to create a space on the web where I can share big events in my life along with tips that I’ve discovered in my so far short (but very rich) life. Also, because I’ve just first hand experienced the college application process, I want to produce some college content. So, keep your eyes open for that!
All in all, 2016 wasn’t great from a worldwide perspective. There was lots of violence, controversy, and death. From a personal view, however, I had many life changing opportunities– and for that I’m truly grateful.
Now on to 2017, a new chapter filled with graduation, college, my eighteenth birthday, and many more blessings.
Thank you for taking the time to read this corner of the web. I truly appreciate it!
Happy New Year ❤️,
