At the end of each year, I put together a collection of my favorite posts from the previous 12 months. This has been a tradition I’ve carried on since I first started this website back in 2013. In my 2018 Year-in-Review, I touch on some of my greatest highlights from the concluding year which includes topics like how I traveled around Europe for nearly half of 2018, what I learned during that stretch of time, and updates on my relationship with my Spanish boyfriend who I met a few years ago through an international study abroad program at my university. Enjoy! Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!
