Every year around this time people establish what their New Year’s resolution is going to be. Often times these revolve around losing weight, eating healthier among many other things.

To me, I always found resolutions as not the most important thing but what is more important is reflecting on the past year. Now with Facebook, this becomes even easier as they have an option where they will make a slideshow of your Facebook highlights throughout the year.

For me, 2017 meant a year where I graduated from college, got a full-time job and moved halfway across the country to Minnesota. It also meant making many new friends along with learning a whole new culture. This year has taught me something very important as well. It taught me that in the course of a year (or less than a year) many things can change. If someone had told me in January of 2017 while I was at the Inauguration that in a few months I would be living in Minnesota I probably wouldn’t believe them. It didn’t take long for that to change and I am glad it did because I can say that moving here was one of the best decisions I ever made.
