2015 in review

How do I even start to sum up 2015? So much has happened in the past twelve months that it seems nearly impossible! I contemplated the best way to go about this post...month by month? in categories? highlighting just the most important things that happened?

Taking a step back from blogging
If you take a look at my sidebar, you'll see 2015 saw a lot less posts on my blog than in past years.  Although it wasn't necessarily intentional to take multiple breaks from blogging, looking back I'm actually pretty happy I did.  Not focusing on blogging allowed me to spend lots of time with my friends at college and make the most of my last year at Sweet Briar (not to mention - spending a lot of time at the library and boosting my GPA high enough to graduate with latin honors!)

I don't think much explanation is needed for this one!  After seventeen years of school, I've finally walked out with the biggest (and most expensive) piece of paper!

First "big girl" job
Right up until the night before graduation, I was sending in job applications like crazy.  I just couldn't imagine graduating, moving home, and having no idea what to do with myself.  I was lucky enough to contact someone from high school who now works at my job, and she was actually looking to hire someone who does just what I studied! I had about a month of summer before I started my job, and anymore more than that I certainly would have gone insane!

I have no idea what's to come in 2016, but I do know that it will take a lot to top 2015.

  1. Congrats! You've done so much this year, I can't wait to see what next year brings!

  2. Definitely a big year for you! It's nice to know I'm not the only one freaking out about graduating, moving home and finding a job. Job searching is much harder than I expected! Best of luck in 2016!
