Looking back, I believe I had a really good year. Of course not every day was perfect, but it was a year I realized who I was, who I want to be, and who I am. I found something to stand for, and made many adventures and friends along the way.
The New Year is coming soon, just hours away actually, I am welcoming this new year with open arms, because change is a natural thing. I know that there are many changes coming in 2016, and it will take some adjustment.
Speaking of, college was a huge adjustment for a lot of people, including me. But luckily, I found a bunch of new friends, learned how to use my meal plan properly, and keep a budget (sort of). I even found out that Cinema Studies wasn't for me, although I did learn how to sit in a room for four and a half hours, and watch The Passion of Joan of Arc in COMPLETE silence. And remember, your GPA is just a number. So what, it was low the first semester? You're still getting accustomed to everything. Try harder, and even your best, the next time around. It does not reflect who you are as a person. For those of you who did do well, great job! (that's not sarcasm). Everyone learns differently and everyone works differently. You'll get somewhere in the long run.
In short, I hope everyone has a very happy and healthy new year, and I hope your holidays, whatever you celebrated, were fantastic too! Make yourself happy this year, and do it because you want to, not because it appeals to anyone else.
Before the ball drops, I'm going to drop some good news:
I'm excited to announce I'll be releasing a novel at the end of February, part of the new projects and goals I've set for myself to do (which I will be working on for the majority of winter break), along with a book of poetry I hope to release in late April. So there's something to look forward to.
