With the year 2016 coming to an end, I thought it would be nice to reflect back on this year and make a list of what I am thankful for. I don't know if it's just me, but I feel like time flies by ever so quickly without us properly acknowledging what we are thankful for. I want to take a moment and put this all down in words so that I can always come back and reminisce what 2016 meant to me. Here it goes.

I am thankful for...

1. Having the privilge of receiving a first-world education

2. Having amazing friends who are always there for me when I need their support and help

3. Being accepted to my dream school

4. The semester break to spend with my family and friends

8. Having an awesome senior prom at the Nixon library with my high school friends

9. Being able to successfully complete the AP Physics class (my god physics was a pain)
