37 Things that I did in 2015



Hi! It’s almost the end of 2015. Wow. When the heck did that happen?!?!

So I kinda missed blogging about Thanksgiving or Christmas and I figured I should post something about the new year or something. But I suck at keeping resolutions so I think a reflection of the year would be a better idea. I was thinking “15 things I did in 2015” when I thought of the idea (like 20 minutes ago) I was thinking eh, I didn’t really do THAT much this year, it might be hard to come up with 15 things. And then I began listing…..and there’s quite a lot that I did. So in roughly order of occurrence and without much detail since it is a long list and I meant for this to be a quick post here are 37 things I did in 2015. I know I missing a bunch of stuff but these are the highlights and the things that I at least remember right now.
