Hello lovelies! With only a few short days left in 2016, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the last year and all of the changes that have occurred in my own life. It’s been a long year and I’ve accomplished so much, and am incredibly grateful for the many blessings and changes that have occurred in my life in 2016.
Finishing my sophomore year of college
This spring marked the end of my sophomore year of college. I am now halfway through my college years, and the end of this fall semester is another step closer to graduation. I’ve had so much fun and have learned so much (both in the classroom and outside it) and can’t wait to experience even more. Only three semesters left! 🙂
Spending time with family
I am eternally grateful for having such an amazing and supportive family. Through every obstacle and major moment in my life, my family has been there to love and support me on this crazy journey called life. Spending time with them will always be a highlight of my year.
Living in New York for the summer
Having the incredible opportunity to stay in NYC for the summer was one of the best experiences of my life thus far. I learned a lot and walked away from the best summer of my life feeling incredibly happy and energized. View some of my pictures here.
Getting an awesome new job
This fall, I began working at a research lab on campus as the communications specialist. It’s been an incredibly enjoyable and enriching experience thus far, and I’m so glad to be doing something I find enjoyable (and get paid for doing it!) 🙂
So much progress on my blog
My blog has completely transformed in 2016, and I’ve added so much new content this year. I’m incredibly proud of all the work I’ve done on here, and want to thank everyone who has stayed with me through this long and chaotic year.
Meeting so many new people
I’ve been lucky to meet so many new people this year who have had an impact on my life for the better, including my incredible boyfriend. I am happy with the time I’ve spent with everyone so far, and am looking forward to meeting more amazing people in 2017 and spending more time with them all.
Thank you all for making my life a little more special! Please share your thoughts below or with me on Twitter @CaseyDonart
