What a doozy that year was, right, guys? I see everyone on facebook like "Shut up about 2016, it's not its fault and y'all are just being whiny." But really, this year has felt pretty monumental in a lot of not-great ways, especially here in fucking America. But as much confusion and heartbreak and this year has brought us, I feel like I had pretty decent time. I graduated from college FINALLY (and got all A's while taking twice the courseload that most of my peers took). I was published in a few magazines, and finished a thesis. I bought a new camera!!! and am soon to buy my dream lens. I feel like I have really been shaping my artistic style this year, as well as my blogging goals. Next year will be a year of creativity, I think, and it wouldn't have been possible without 2016 so I have to thank it for that. I've put a few of my favorite photos/moments of this year on this post as a thank you to the year, and a wish for next year. More creating, more learning, more inspiration for 2017 please.
