2016: My Year In Review

So, 2016 is almost over, and I found out that Kylie Jenner was right - this year really was the year of realizing stuff.

A lot of things have happened over the course of a year and I like to think that, after 12 months, I've grown more as a person (mentally, because I'm clearly not going to grow physically anymore lmao) and have eventually become more accepting of myself and the life that I'm leading. I feel that 2016 has been another 'start' for me - the future is still distant and scary but at least I have a clearer picture of the direction that I'm going in and where I would ideally like to be.

Anyway! Besides all that emotional stuff.. It's been a real busy year for me. Amongst everything that has happened to me this year, I've decided to simply highlight the important moments and show you guys through this post :) Hopefully I can look back at this at the end of next year (and in the years to come) and see how much things have changed. I hope you all have had a great 2016 as well!

I'm really thankful to everyone who has impacted my life this year, and I'm so grateful for all the things I was able to do. 2017 may have had its ups and downs, as every year, but I generally had a fantastic time and I'm beyond excited to see what the future has in store for me.

Happy new year, everyone :) May your 2017 be full of happiness and success!
