Yup, it's that time of year again where the excitement of Christmas has ended and the excitement for New Years has begun. There's just something about the idea of a "fresh" start that sounds overwhelmingly...awesome! So, while most people are wrapped up in coming up with New Year's resolutions and finding the perfect outfit, others are probably cuddled up in their blankets at home on their laptops with nothing but reflections of this year clogging up their newsfeeds. Well, I'm here to add to that clogging, but as more of a helpful gesture than an annoying one...hopefully!

I thought I'd put together a few of the billions of ways for you to find out what happened in 2014, in your life and in the world. Read on to find out what happened in 2014!

If you're on social media, you've probably seen something pop up about looking at your year in review on that social media platform. The following are some of the ways you can see your year on social media along with the worlds':

Instagram - Instagram doesn't technically have a year in review, but a similar app called Statigram, uses your Instagram information to formulate a year in review for you. Basically what it does is it shows you your Top 5 most liked pictures.
1) Sign in to your Instagram account on Statigram
2) A screen should pop up asking if you want a video of your year in review
