Year in Review | 2016 Favorites

Since it is New Year's Eve, I figured today was an appropriate time to post some of my favorite things about 2016. 2016 has been a year of both ups and downs for me. I have faced many challenges, but I've also had experienced many moments of personal growth. Although 2016 was not my favorite year to date, I think this year I have really found myself this year, and am finally truly content and happy with my life. That being said, I wanted to share my favorite things about 2016 as we say goodbye to 2016, and hello to the new year. Top four favorite things of 2016: 
  1. Coffee: I have ALWAYS been a huge coffee lover, and I have been drinking it since I was a Freshman in High School, but this year I've gotten way more into coffee, and I have an unhealthy obsession. My favorite drink was definitely cold brew, so much so that the barista at my University's Starbucks calls me "Cold Brew Carly" now and starts making my coffee for me when I walk in. I guess you could say it has become routine for me.
  2. Spending Time with Friends: I have always love hanging out with my friends, but I always invest most of my time studying, that I don't find that I have enough time to have a normal social life. This year, I have made it more of a priority to spend more time with my friends, and enjoy my last year of college (you only live once).
  3. Focusing on Myself: This year has been a huge year of personal growth for me. I finally decided I needed to figure out what I must do in order to make myself happy, and attempted to achieve each one of those goals. Although I have a lot more to accomplish, I feel so incredibly proud of myself for working so hard to achieve the things that I have wanted for so long. It feels good to work toward personal growth, and it's taught me a lot about myself. Learning to be a little selfish has been SO fulfilling, and has made me learn to love myself.
  4. Trying New Things: This year I have tried a lot of new things and I mean A LOT.  I have hung out with friends more, taken new classes, tried new foods and become more involved in student organizations. I have never felt more daring and adventurous in my life, but I'm loving every second of it. I hope to do the same in 2017.
I am personally really looking forward to 2017, especially because I am graduating nursing school in May which is a HUGE accomplishment for me, and I can't believe I'm almost done. I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

& P.S - This year I plan on blogging A LOT more. I lost the SIM card for my camera, and I have not been able to take pictures to post since I lost it, but I'm planning on buying one soon and will be posting again when I get a new one!
