2015. A year of transitions. Now I know I will be saying this again in my 2016 year recap, but I really think transitions is the best word to use to describe this past year.
Last year this time I gave my year in review including my adventures abroad and the beginning to get back into the swing of things back here at home. Last year was adventure, this year was transition.
A transition back to the United States, back to Penn, into both of my majors, fully into the crazy world of wedding planning, into waitressing, into my senior year, into juggling working full time and going to school full time. But mostly into realizing in no matter what, I will succeed. I transitioned into having confidence in what I know and the ability to transition into the “fake it til I make it mindset.” It has been a transition into learning more of what I want to take into the future me.
Now, time for my traditional Year in Review through pictures!
