The year is coming to an end. In a few days, we'll be welcoming in the 2016 year (hopefully with glasses of champagne in hand!). This year has been a great year and to be honest, I'm kind of sad to see 2015 come and go so soon. I don't know about all of you, but this year went by SOOO quickly, am I right?

Writing this post, I'm going over all the things I got to do and all my achievements (in my head), and I'm not gonna lie, they kind of bring a tear or two to my eyes. I know, like, what?? The thing that makes me the most sad with 2015 slowly passing away is that it was such a good year for me, and I don't know how 2016 will compare.

Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of things that I had set out to do in 2015 that didn't end up happening. For example, going back to my Fall Semester Goal blog post, here's a mini list of things that didn't happen:

Le Northern Belle | Yearly Review 2015

1. Go to Office Hours 
(no matter how many blog posts or advice videos I read/watch that
emphasize the importance of going to office hours, I'll probably
never go to them, so this goal was completely unrealistic)

2. Make Lunches and Dinner ahead of time
(definitely broke the record for the most food purchased on 
campus than any UW student)

3. Go to the gym at least twice a week
(Life happens, and thats ok!)

4. Bump up blog post to twice a week
(still coming at you once a week...whoops!)

Even with all these failed goals, I still had an amazing, and what I see as a successful, year! We're all human and even though we strive for excellence, via our #goals, things come up and you might not reach them and thats A-OK! So since we're in the lively spirit of the holidays, and with fresh snow on the ground, I've decided to put aside my failed goals of 2015, and look and review on what went well in 2015.

 I like to be optimistic, and pretend that the failed goals
 didn't happen, and instead, just do a whole lot better the next time

Le Northern Belle | Year in Review
AOII proverb. In essence, do better than what you did yesterday and do better than you had originally hoped for. I love this saying!

All negativity aside, a few great things came out of 2015. I dropped my first album, just kidding!
I did however:

Visit Ghana (for the first time in 10 years)
Visit NYC and Orlando/Disneyworld for the first time ever!
Complete my first term as a leader's council member in AOII (without figuratively killing anyone)
I started (and kept up with it!!)
Make the Dean's List at uWaterloo (aka my best term average in uni, to date!)
Get elected in as the VP of Communication for next years council (Yay! One of my dream positions)
Road trip through part of the United States with friends (Storybook time!
I earned a spot on uWaterloo's KIN Games team (We are all best friends!)
I bought my very first MacBook (aka my baby!)

Alright, enough talk about accomplishments. Going forward into 2016, my only request of myself, is that I use my time more wisely. Doing more stuff with my time instead of aimlessly going on social media and Netflix. Those will always be there, but the opportunities that come up may not always be.
