Studying abroad, finishing my thesis, and spending an exorbitant amount of time learning about myself and what I want from my friends and family has led to my conclusion that this year was the best ever. So, thank you. Every single person from this year has really and truly impacted me, and I can’t think of a cheesy enough Instagram post or Facebook message to explain it.
I got to live it up in London with my best friend, welcome in visitors that made our time there even better, and meet friends that I’ll have for the rest of my life.
I came home to an internship that taught me exactly what I want in life and got to work under some of the most talented and, honestly, most fun people I’ve ever met.
Heading back to school reminded my that while panicking over my thesis was going to happen, my absolute genius of an advisor and my fabulous roommate and sorority sisters made sure my mind wasn’t too far gone. Finishing the most important paper I have in my undergrad and finally resting at home over Christmas break? Well, that was just the icing on the cake.
Thank you, everyone, for making me want to ruin the makeup I JUST did with so many happy tears. I owe an amazing year to all of you.
If 2016 can even come close to 2015, I know we’re in for a good one. Have a Happy New Year.
