Ending 2015

A new year approaches. As I get older, my experience of each season quickens. The holidays and occasions come around sooner, and it feels like every other month we've hit summer or winter. It's the 31st of December, New Year's Eve, and it's a time to reflect on the past twelve months as well as prepare for the next twelve.

2015 was fantastic for me, particularly in the final months of the year. I turned 20 in January, and felt like I became a lot more independent, mature and domesticated once I put the "teenager" years behind me. Just to run off a small number of things, in 2015 I learned:
  • How to cook a handful of meals
  • How taxes and bills work
  • The importance of budgeting
  • How to date
  • About various different political biases as well as formulating my own opinions
  • Pacifism
  • How to deal with my anxiety for nightclubs
  • How to manage my university workload, and to meet deadlines at a better pace
  • Other useful skills; I'm very domesticated now with regards to household chores
All-in-all, it's been an important year of personal growth for me. From September, I moved into a new student house with six other amazing people, and I'm really loving how well we get along. It's like a little family. I've become a lot more politically aware of certain events, such as the goings on in Syria, the various leadership elections going on in different countries, and the relationship the UK has had with the rest of the EU recently. Hopefully, I can continue my bildungsroman through into 2016.

I will now list off several different best/worst-ofs for 2015:
That about wraps it up. Have a Happy New Year, guys and gals!
