Year in Review


2016 is finally coming to a close, and 2017 is soon here. I already noted my plans and goals for 2017 in a previous post, but I wanted to take a second to look back at some of my favorite and most influential posts of 2016. 

I Am Losing My Mind and I Am Not Alone

This article is, for me, my most stand out. It’s the most vulnerable I have ever written, and shares a side of me that I don’t share very often. Out of all of my Huffington Post articles, this one is the best in my opinion. Read the article here.

Ilvermorny Sorting Guide

This was a fan (and Google search) favorite this year. Right after the Ilvermorny sorting quiz on Pottermore was released, I wrote this quick guide for it and it became very, very popular. And when Fantastic Beasts released, it grew again. It made my little nerd heart happy. Read the guide here.

3 Things

This was a quick post I published on Medium, and is more of a poem. I wrote it late at night during a panic attack. It’s very different from the writing style I usually do. Read the poem here. 

I Never Thought I Could Be President

While the Presidential race ended less than desired, I’m still amazed and impressed that a woman came as close as she did to becoming President. When she won the Democratic National Convention, I wrote this piece on Medium about Hillary Clinton’s significance as a role model. Whether you loved her or didn’t care for her, she still matters. Read the article here.

Mental Health

I wrote a lot, a lot, a lot about mental health and illnesses, and have found that to be the content I enjoy making the most and led me into being an advocate for mental health and de-stigmatization. If I had the ability to list every single post I have ever written on mental health, that would take a really long time. I do have an archive of the majority of posts, which you can find here. 

Honorable Mentions

Some things I wanted to reflect on more briefly: I was interviewed for a podcast, started broadcasting on Twitch, and gave a presentation at a collegiate conference!

What were your favorite posts (of mine or someone else) of 2016? Leave me a comment!
