I find it hard to believe I've stuck it out this long.
Like, every time I
try to start a chronicle of my life, it only lasts a few months, maybe a year.
Yet here we are.
Another year done.
Wow, this is
starting to sound sad.
I'M NOT LEAVING OR
THIS IS NOT A
LIGHTEN UP FOR
How'm I supposed to celebrate this anyways?
Confetti, I guess.
And I suppose I could get Gandalf to blast off some fireworks.
But seriously though! I'm so happy with the way this blog of mine is working out!
I'm so incredibly grateful for the friends I've met and made through blogging (we will figure out a way to meet up, I promise!).
You have made me step out and find my voice.
You have encouraged me and put up with my cringey first attempts at blogging and writing.
In general, I feel like I've stepped out of my comfort zone and become a more lively person because of blogging.
Contrary to popular belief, no I have not fallen off the face of the earth into oblivion. Life just happened.
Many of y'all know that I participated in NaNoWriMo (for those who don't know: National Novel Writing Month) last November.
Although I did not finish, I still had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed myself!
I started at midnight, November 1st, with several other blogger friends all grouped on a google hangout. The goal that day was to write 5k words. I barely squeaked by, but felt very productive. Though, many others wrote more than me.
Then you know, life. School. Family. Thanksgiving. I fell behind. Lowered my personal goal to 25k. still only just made it past 15k. I wasn't happy with myself for not completing a full 50k for the second year. BUT, I was very pleased that I had written more than I ever had in one month.
But y'all are here for snippets, aren't you? No? Then leave. Or scroll down until you see a bunch of screenshots or something.
