Hello, 2016!

IT'S A NEW YEAR! I know a lot of people think that the turn of a new year is an arbitrary day that shouldn't be celebrated but I am not one of those people. I like the feeling of a fresh start. I like the opportunity to look back and reflect, and to look forward and hope and dream. 2015 was a big year for me - in fact, I'd say it was the biggest year I've ever had. I travelled an unfathomable amount, I made important relationships, and I feel like I grew and evolved more than ever before. One of the most important shifts that happened was my new focus on writing. Something I'd always wanted to do I actually started to do! And better yet, I enjoyed!

I understand that resolutions are usually declared the first day of the year, but since the 1st of January sits in the middle of my winter break I've lost all track of time. I'm going to spend the next few weeks before my final semester starts thinking up some fun and achievable writing goals for 2016 and I'll make a post about them soon!

For now, I wanted to say hello to 2016 and goodbye to 2015 - a year I will always treasure.
