In One Year’s Time

Hello family and friends!

This week was full of philosophical questions ranging from discussing Thomas More’s Utopia, life without the sense of smell, and where I was a one year ago. Thanks to Snapchat, I was reminded that one year ago today that I was living it up in New York City. One year ago, today! In some sense, this feels like forever ago, but it also kinda feels like that it was like yesterday.

This post may seem like it should be saved for New Year’s because I’ll be looking back at what I’ve accomplished in one year. The reminder of the NYC trip really made me reflect on all that I’ve done and I’d like to share that with all of you!

When I was notified that my amazingly awesome trip to New York City, was one year ago, I couldn’t believe it! Just to think where I’d be one year later to the date. When I was flying on the airplane, or walking in Times Square, I didn’t think that I would be almost done with my first semester in college!

I can’t fathom everything that has happened in one year, and this year has been so good to me. I got accepted into my first choice college and their honors program, graduated high school (and got my name on a plaque for being in the 10%), made wonderful friends in college (you know who you are ;p), started a Council for Indigenous People, began working on research with a professor called “Facilitating Full Spectrum Learning,” had my first real job working at a daycare, went on a road trip to Minnesota with my lovely family, and more great things!

The beginning of November 2017 feels like eons ago. But I can say that it has been the best year of my life thus far. I just want to thank everyone in my life: my supportive parents, my weirdly wonderful sisters, my friends, my professors, and everyone reading this! 

As I sit here in Phil’s eating mini corn dogs and fries, I cannot wait to see what a difference another year will make! I know that I have grown so much as a person so far, and I hope next year will be as good to me. 

And as always, thanks for reading!
