21 of the Best Things That Happened to Me This Past Year.

Guess who just turned 21?

21 of the Best Things That Happened to Me This Past Year.

Last year I wrote an article about the 20 things I learned before turning 20. So with my 21st birthday having recently just passed I thought it was fitting I write about the 21 best things that happened to me this past year.

1. I turned 21 and am now officially legal!

2. I got a job on campus and I actually really like it! (Plus my co-workers are pretty cool).

3. I watched Twin Peaks and it is one of the best shows I have ever seen.

4. I went to New York City and can officially say that I belong there.

5. I took some classes that gave me that "this has changed my outlook in life" moment.

6. I became a part of Sigma Lambda Upsilon/ Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. (HLM Hermanas).

7. Became inspired and in awe of all the courageous women in my life.

8. I made new incredible friendships. (You know who you are).

9. I stayed best friends with the same amazing people. (You know who you are).

10. I became an aunt. (My niece is so cute).

11. I jumped on stage at a concert! (Which later was featured in a film!)

12. I stepped outside my comfort zone and was completely out of my element.

13. I had great academic semesters at Georgia State University. (Deans list!).

14. I had my first existential crisis. (It wasn't fun)

15. I read some inspiring books.

16. I went to some awesome concerts like Niall Horan, Chicano Batman and Cuco.(Y'all should listen to them)

17. I moved into a house.

18. I gained a new responsibilities and learned how to manage my time. (I feel so grown up).

19. I saw a movie that represented a part of my culture that I hold very dear to my heart.

20. Fell in love, with myself. (Self love always!).

21. The only thing I wanted for my birthday was to spend it with the 3 most important people in life and I did. (Love you mom, dad and bro).

Obviously these weren't the only great things to happen to me these year but they definitely l were some of the best. Regardless of whether they were good or bad, they left an impact on me and helped form a better me.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
