Best of the Decade: 2016

For the next 10 days (with a little break on Christmas day), I’m going to recap the last decade—probably some of the most emotional years of my life. Now, these are just some of my favorites across the last decade, I obviously can’t include everything. When it comes to TV shows, I only chose shows that had a premiere date starting 2010 or after, hence why favorites like Parks and Recreation and Community aren’t on the list. I hope you enjoy!

What Was I Doing

  • Left my job at the dance studio
  • Visited my best friend in Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Had surgery to clear and open up my sinus cavities
  • Went to my first YALL Fest where I met some of my favorite authors
  • Went to a bunch of comedy shows
  • Found out my brain tumor had returned
