I am hopeful for a better year

  • Last year was very depressing and sad for me and didn't go the way I wanted it to, but I am hoping that I am able to find peace with my self this year and to not be depressed anymore. The reason for my sadness is mostly because I lost a lot of my good friends because of my ex so I am awfully lonely and hope to make new friends this year and to finish my major in computer science once and for all. If I am able to accomplish those two things then I'll be truly happy so I will remain hopeful and pray for the best of what 2017 has to offer.
