It would have been more appropriate to post this yesterday but we're going to ignore that.

2016 was as shitty for me as it was for (it looks) most internet users: I had a very bad breakdown this June/July similar to the one that actually sent me to therapy three (I think it was three?) years ago, I've become pretty disheartened with my relationship with my family, I dropped out of university and am currently still in a crisis over this and my future in general, which doesn't make it easier to deal with the first two points. However, if I'm really honest with myself, all of these things happened for reasons I was or should have been aware of, or were the only possible outcome given the circumstances. None of it was easy to deal with, especially being forced to open my eyes on what the extent of my mental illness is or how many things in my life I let become messy beyond the point of no return, but the result is that I know more about myself and what I need to work on. It's not a nice view, but I'm looking at it.

I also had some genuinely good experiences, even if they weren't many: I got to visit my girlfriend in Milan, I hung out more with some relatives I really like, I saw an old friend again and it wasn't awkward. I got my driving license, which I never cared particularly about, but was still a success. I consumed some really good media, but that's for another section.
