The days between Christmas and new year are always a haze of confusion.
You have no idea what to do with yourself because the build up to Christmas has come and gone and the build up to New Years Eve seems so far away. So far away that you spend your days alternating between wanting to go out for NYE and wanting to stay home.
One thing is for sure, the post-Christmas/ pre-New Year’s eve haze is spent reflecting – on the things that were and how they affect the things that are yet to come.
Reflection is a always a personal thing – despite SOME people imposing their revelations on us in verbose, emoji-filled Instagram captions.
One website has made this reflection something we can all do together (superficially, that is).
Introducing #2015best nine.
You’ve probably seen the ‘best nine’ collage on a few of your favorite Instagrammers pages and if you haven’t already created your own, you’re probably wondering what the heck it’s all about.
Well, the website has created a way for Instagram users to see their year in review, in the form of a collage, captioned with the cumulative likes they have received in 2015.
