CHANCES

2016 was definitely the toughest year of my life, yet it was the most memorable so far. It has it’s many ups and downs, from personal matters to public issues, 2016 was one hell of a ride. It was the year of realizing stuff (Kylie Jenner was right on this one), it was also the year of surprises, just when you thought that life has no more surprises in store, they throw one right to your face.

2016 marks the start of my last year in high school, and the first 6 months were definitely tough, but it also made me a lot stronger. I had to make decisions that would dictate my future, which uni should I attend? which major is the best one for me? is this the right call to make? all these questions would stay with me until the early hours during those restless nights, making me even more anxious than I was before. But all of these decision are inevitable, and it is just the start. When you go through hard times you really get to know who your real friends are, who are always there for you, to support you during, what you feel like, could be the shittiest day or moment in your life.

2016 made me reflect on myself, since I only had 3 more months before graduating, I want to make those 3 months count. I will try to live my life to its fullest extent, I want to create even more memories with my friends, and I want to be able to take more risks. Because, what I realize in 2016 was that life is about taking risks and chances, and that you will learn from the mistakes that you made in the past. I hope that 2017 will be a better year for everyone!
