2015 in review

Hello, my dear readers, for the last time in 2015!

I have already done my final movie post of the year, which you can find here. This post will touch upon my personal life.

2015 were the craziest, most interesting and most rewarding year of my life so far. I started the year as a senior in high school and ended it as a freshman at a prestigious university in a different country. I made lots of great memories: preparation for prom and the most amazing prom night I could have asked for, stressful studying for exams, the actual exams and then graduation. I had to say goodbye to a wonderful bunch of people: my classmates and other people from school as well as my old swimming team. The summer of 2015 was full of anxiety – I felt very uncertain about the future but finally managed to make a decision, which I now believe to be the right one. I moved to a different country, which I have dreamed about doing for the past 8 years. I met lots of people from all over the world, joined a university swimming club and won my first medal in the university swimming competition. I also started to study new and exciting subjects, which made me question everything. I also managed to keep up this blog without any huge breaks. I delved deeper into my love for cinema. I read lots of new books. I also managed to participate in 7 running, 3 swimming and 1 cycling marathon as well as went to 2 concerts of my favorite singers – Ed Sheeran and Loreen. I spent a few weeks volunteering at a basketball event and made amazing new friends as well as improved my skills of communication and organization. Lastly, I managed to pass my driving exam during the Christmas season!

However, the most important accomplished of this year was the fact that I finally became happy in my own skin. I got to know myself much more deeply and started trusting my judgement much more. I have finally understood what makes me happy, so I don’t need to follow the crowd anymore. My only goal for 2016 is to fully enjoy the life that I am living, even if it does not seem like a good life at times. What are your goals for the next year?

How are you going to celebrate the end of 2015? I will probably lay in bed with a bucket of Häagen-Dazs ice cream and will watch live streams of NYE celebrations and fireworks from all the different time zones – and you know what? I am fine with that.

P.S. Bellow, you will find all the statistical figures of this year, if that interests you. Bye!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,900 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.
