Happy New Year, everyone!
Another year in the books! This year has been a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs for me. And I personally want to leave this year behind me and just go forward.
When it came to blogging, I failed all my 2017 goals. So I’m not going to make any goals this upcoming year and just go with the flow. I received many opportunities that allowed me to grow as a writer but I also had some disappointments in regards to failed blogging projects. In the end, I think the positives and negatives balanced each other out. For 2018, I hope to further grow as a writer and editor and reach a larger audience.
As for my personal life, I had a rough year, health-wise. Aside from the usual mental draining of grad school, I received injuries that left me broken inside and out. I received the ultimate blow to the heart—a heartbreak that I’m still recovering from even after almost a year. And to top it off, I have been plagued with physical injuries. A skateboarder rammed his skateboard into my foot because he didn’t know how to stop nor did he read the “No Skateboarding” sign. And, due to my clumsiness, I sprained my ankles a few times this year. But I think the worse health issue I had this year was having ear infections that affected my hearing for half a year. I couldn’t really enjoy listening to music with earphones or headphones and I had to stop doing voice chats with my online friends for some time. Luckily, the issue was solved and I can now enjoy my favorite activities. I hope it won’t happen again, though.
Overall, for 2018, all I ask for is a simple year with not so many curveballs. 2017 wasn’t a great year for me and so, I hope 2018 would let me breathe a little.
Let me just live a sexy, free and single year.
