How did your holidays go? How did you find 2016?
If I were to only consider what's been going on with my personal life and the smaller community I belong to, everything's going great! I made lots of new friends in uni, more than I thought I'd have--even more than what I actually needed. Some of my friends got married. Two of them had a baby months ago. My well-being is great. I have become more open and loving to my family, especially to my mom. My relationship with Dom has been fantastic, and we've been together for about 11 months now (11 months tomorrow, to be precise).
But as part of my recent ~epiphany~, I have also made national issues my concern. And it should be, as national policies and policy-makers affect how I and my loved ones would live. So, as you can tell by the news, things have been pretty stressful as well.
To be honest, I don't want to label 2016 as the worst year in my lifetime so far, as this was the only year I ever truly cared. Besides, I don't have the figures to support that claim. I just made a list of 10 lessons I've learned from 2016.
