Today I sit in Mexico City ready to ring in the New Year in this amazing city for the second year in a row. This year I will be celebrating it with my brother. I’ve been here since Friday and have had a great time as per usual and can’t wait to see what this evening’s festivities will hold.

I decided to make this flakes a special one and share many features, articles and lists highlighting the best of the past decade and past year. Check them all out and agree, disagree, brawl about the choices in the comment sections below.

I would also love to read about everyone’s top personal highlights were from the past decade. My highlights of the 2010s were graduating from the University of Nebraska in 2013, attending two matches at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and visiting the famous Machu Picchu archaeological site in 2019.

Anyways...onto Flakes! See you next decade!
