On the blog, I shared a lot of my projects, a detailed journal of my Peru trip, my dorm rooms, and photos from everyday life.

Overall, it was a pretty good year.  There were some rough patches and not everything was great, but there were also a lot of amazing times.  My trip to Peru was the highlight of my year.  I also spent lots of time with family and friends.  Here’s to hoping the coming year is even better!

Happy New Year!
