2012 was a very crazy, but amazing year. Now that it is the new year, 2013, I want to take a look back at how I have changed, the world has changed, and how the people around me have changed my life. First of all, I have become a better person. I have learned how different things can impact my life and how different people can impact my life. Many things have impacted me and changed how I look at life and how quickly things can change.
In 2012, the world changed a lot. The United States reelected Barack Obama as president. A girl in Benghazi, Malala Yusofzai fought for her education and was a target for many people. She believes that education for women is just as important as education for men, and she is 100% correct. The world has changed a lot in the past year, some things for the better, some things for the worse. I believe that 2013 will be just as exciting as 2012, and I hope there is less conflict.
I have also learned a lot about life. We should never take life for granted, because it can be taken away from you any second. Many people were hurt by the bus crash that occurred this year at Chesterfield Elementary School. It brought sadness to the entire town and surrounding towns, because many people were close to the people who lost their lives and were injured. Also, in the beginning of the year, my friends and I were going through a rough time. During that time period, I learned who my true friends are. We eventually made up, but some those few months were some of the worst months of my life. I now look at life as a privilege, and not something that you automatically get.
Since it is the new year, many people make New Years Resolutions. Some people, although are anti-resolution. I like to make resolutions so that I have something to live up to. Here is a list of some of my resolutions:
- Get all A's all year long.
- Be more optimistic.
- Live life to the fullest.
