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.
I hope everyone had a really nice Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family, friends or however you chose. If you exchange gifts, I hope you got some lovely presents!
It was a nice day for me, spent with mum and dad. I received a TV for my bedroom along with wireless headphones so I can spend time gaming in my room on my PS3. I also got an owl calendar, some notebooks and a cute owl money box.
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.
Merry Christmas 2013
Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you had a really wonderful time. Christmas day for me was a nice day spent with my mum and dad. We opened gifts, had some food and enjoyed each others company. Unfortunately dad had to go back to work on Christmas day so that was a bummer. Mum and I also carried on the tradition and watched many movies in the afternoon/night. It has always been something we enjoy, not just on Christmas, but a lot of the time, since I was a child.
I was not expecting any gifts, I was more excited about giving mum her new camera (Canon EOS 600D). She really loved it. So I was glad. However, I did get a lot of cute little gifts (which include a lot of owl things). You could say it was a hoot*.
Get ready for an overload of images below. ;D
Today I am 24, very strange. I had originally planned to write a post on reflections and what I plan to do in the next year before turning 25 (mainly to do with pushing myself to do the things I have always wanted) but I don’t feel like it right now. Next update I’ll see how I go.
I was having a good day, received so many messages (amazing, thank you ALL!) but found out in the afternoon that Dad was in hospital and had been since 7am. *sigh* So that has made things a bit blah. I hope he will be okay.
I do have cupcakes! Everything is okay with cupcakes. x:cupcakestraw: x:cupcakechoc:
