In a lot of ways, 2017 was the shittiest years of all. I have had, and probably will continue to have, countless mental breakdowns, lonely nights crying and wishing things were different, a lot of struggles balancing my studies, work, family crises and writing for a blog that 2017 left me squeezed out. BUT, there were some good things that happened there as well – like me starting to commit to a blog and writing regularly (mostly because it’s the only thing that is keeping me sane), meeting some great new friends over the globe, being one year closer to graduation!, being able to travel more often, even tho it’s just 100km away, visiting Hungary as well for the first time, buying a lot of books ( that I wasn’t able to read but still) and finally focusing a bit on my WIP and getting into poetry which I never thought I would do.
Figuring out who my real friends are was also a big bonus for this year, and realizing that some friendships were on life support for a long time and some are not as genuine as I thought. I have to say I have a better perception of who is who now.
I have grown so much in the past year, whether it is ignoring stupid people, trying to stay out of it, not being such an emotional wreck/rollercoaster, figuring out who is who like I said.
Did I achieve my 2017 goals? Not even close… That is something I am really disappointed about, I was supposed to have finished a lot of things, including both of my novels, had I stuck to the plan, but I never in a thousand years could have predicted that I would barely have time to catch my breath.
Regarding this blog, I have posted a round of 90 posts!!! which include 11 poems, 5 short stories, and 40+ chapters of my on the road to realiti, that is a fucking lot! I had almost 4000 views from all around the world without any marketing or without any help from friends and family, and I can’t wait for it to become even bigger and better in 2018!
There are a lot of things that I have in store for me in 2018, and I can’t fucking wait to share them with you, probably tomorrow!
What I would like to know is how do you see your 2017, and please comment below what you have learned or overcame in 2017 and what are the great memories that you will keep with you forever!
I am starting a project from the first day of 2018, which is not that big or important really, but it will be important for me and my mental health so stay tuned if you want to participate!
Happy New Year everyone and I hope to be reading you in the new year as well! <3
