Wow, what a year, right. 2016 took so much from the world. It generally seemed like a sad year for everyone.
For me, though. It was not bad of a year. I learnt so much, and honestly, I’m leaving the year smiling.
2016 was the year where I finally started enjoying my life as a college student. The year I realized that, this place I was in? Not too shabby. Interesting people all around. I just had to open my mind a little more. I had to understand that different people have different opinion. And that’s okay. You don’t always have to prove them wrong. You had to give everyone a chance.
2016, the year of my first ever moot court.
2016, where I had planned to travel to 5 places in my vision board, and I did. I went to new places and I got new experiences.Well, I HAVE to travel more in 2017!
2016, where I had my first accident as a licensed driver. Scary, but I learned a lot, so no regrets there.
2016; that time when we sat down and sang Yellow (and other songs) under the stars on the Calicut beach.
2016, the year where we moved into a new home, truly ours. Not rented, not any relative’s but ours. That feeling when you get to decorate your OWN room, is beautiful.
2016 is the year I recognized my strengths from the weaknesses and working on being a better person everyday. It’s progressed, but still ongoing.
2016, the year of pride when I got a call in the morning saying something I wrote was published in the paper. It would seem extremely insignificant to others, but to me it meant the world.
2016, the year when I reunited with old friends for four magnificent days. Pure happiness. Literally.
2016, the year I made amazing new friendships unexpectedly. I don’t think I will ever forget that night, I stayed up talking till 4am with them. Finding solace with the last person you thought you would. #midnightbuddies.
2016 is when I realized that putting myself first is not a bad thing some times. Treat yo self amiright.
2016, the year I saw that same WB logo on screen after almost 5 years and cried with happiness. Potterhead, always.
2016, the year of new obsessions. Kinda ruined my life, but still worth it.
2016, the year i learned being a positive and kind person costs nothing, but feels great.
2016, the year I made amazing plans for 2017.
2016, you sucked for the whole world. But you sucked a little less, for me atleast.
And 2017 cannot be all that bad. After all we are starting the year off with a new Sherlock episode!
