Bye Bye 2014!

A new year is almost here and that brings 2014 to a close. This year was a strange one. I lost two animals (Tigger & Flapper), started free hosting again, created two new blogs (Cute Magic & Why Blue) and tried not to push myself mentally.

In 2015 I would like to:

  • Make a plan for the future
  • Seek support for mental health
  • Finish children’s book
  • Relearn website design
  • Make a theme for my blog
  • Exercise & eat better
  • Stop drinking as much soda/pop
  • Stop smoking as much

Dad and I will be playing our annual game of cricket in the afternoon (when it cools down). We have been playing this for so long (16+ years I think). Today I was thinking it will be really sad when one day he is not here to play it with me. I am lucky that he is, especially after he had cancer twice.

I hope 2015 will be a great year for everyone. :)

See ya 2013

Another year is almost over and 2014 is knocking on our doors! Hopefully it can be a year where we all welcome the visitor, who will bring many positive gifts.

For me, 2013 was a kind of a difficult year. Not as traumatic as 2012 was, but it was still hard. I faced a lot of challenges with mental health, lost a friend to suicide, lost my dear grandparents dog and lived in a numb daze a lot of the time. However, I was lucky in that I had my parents there for me and two good noodles friends named Nicole and Claire who put up with my craziness and for some strange reason still wanted to be friends. Siriusly Seriously though, they really helped me in so many ways and inspired to give me hope.

What do I want for 2014? I mainly hope that I can settle and try to find stability. I don’t want to make major plans for the future until I am at a place where I am thinking clearly and can handle all that goes with major decisions (take 2012, where I thought my only option was to start a business). I hope that I will reach out for help and keep striving to get to a good place while also still working on creative projects and sharing love with the people I care about.

Now for some kind of random things. :B

Stepping into a new decade

Rascal

2009 is almost over, only a few more hours and 2010 will spring upon us like a tiger stalking in the grass. I hope 2010 brings a lot of happiness and joy for everyone, it’s about time! I hope that for myself it will be much better than 2009 and be about good news and positive energy.

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t make a list of the resolutions I want to keep for 2010.

  • Loose weight and be healthy
  • Work hard in school
  • Get good marks on my HSC
  • Keep positive and be thankful for what I have
  • Get my drivers license (heh.. maybe? ;D)
  • Be adventurous and do something I wouldn’t normally
  • Keep an active blog (har har har)
  • Write a book and have it published
  • Read 50 books in one year

I think that is the major ones. *nod*

Dad and I played our annual game of cricket. He won, but he played a good game. We have been playing it for over ten years on the 31st of every December. Except last year we couldn’t because he had just had his operation for cancer and couldn’t do much of anything. In some ways, being able to play again was a much a celebration of overcoming that hurdle, even if it came back and he has to have more treatment. It was however, nice to have that hour where we just forgot and enjoyed ourselves in a family tradition.

Speak to you on the other side, unless the world ends and we will really be on the “other side” hahaha. Oh.
