2016 was a bittersweet year for me.
There were some very low points and some amazing highs.
The biggest event that happened was my mum becoming irreversibly ill. The past half a year was spent taking care of her and stabilising her care plans, then her administrative matters. There is still a lot left to be done over the next few months but I will take it slowly as the strain took a toll on my stress levels and health.
I miss her former self a lot and cherish the good days with her.
Then there were the blessed moments– completing my Master’s dissertation amidst this and then being offered full research scholarships at two universities.
I am happy to say goodbye and welcome 2017.
