Thoughts on 2016......

My life has changed this year very much. I started college, graduated high school and now I'm living away from home which is a thing I have never done before. It gives me more freedom and I love it! I have met my best friends in my first semester of college. I have gone through life changes in 2016. Also, my close cousin passed away from cancer this year and that was a hard loss for our family. Even though him and his family live in Ireland, we are still close. Cancer really does stink, but in 2016 I have matured a lot as a person. I have learned who my real friends are and who are not. Also in college I have made bad decisions that I've learned from. 2016 was a good and bad year. I'm excited to see what comes in the future for my life!

2016 has came around for different types of opportunities, especially the leadership ones I've obtained including being an Orientation Leader, e-board positions for three clubs I am a part of and being a Campus Life Program's Assistant (newer position on campus). Friendships were created, destroyed and rebuilt for numerous of reasons and family has came and gone. Death was in the picture for a few different appearances but it's a thing we have to accept. World wise, 2016 has had an interesting turn of events that all of us probably know about by now. All I know is 2016 was a roller-coaster and I know it was probably the same way for a majority of you like it was for me and I'm only praying 2017 will be better and I'm sure you all will be too. Have a Happy New Year!
