Happy New Year everybody!
It’s time for the mandatory yearly review of my life and time to make some plans, declare some resolutions, set some goals and formulate wishes.
How did 2013 treat you? I’ve had people say it was a crappy year for them, while for some it was amazing. For most people, though, it was a year that brought forth a lot of important/big things that forced people to take a stance, evaluate their life choices and decide on a path. I believe life is full of opportunities. Not all of them may be seen as “good”, mind you, but they’re all chances to grow and strengthen yourself as a person, be it due happy events or really crappy ones.
One year ago I was summarising a roller coaster of a year, with lost of important life events that left me not really knowing where to go with my life, but knowing that I should decide on it soon. I was still struggling with household management, but I was happy because I was going places professionally! The beginning of the year was full of “I’m turning 30 this year…” and feeling like I was reaching some sort of milestone that I should have been better prepared for, feeling I was behind schedule at life.
I was looking forward to work and have some of the projects I worked on be released, work on some other projects and… I said I wouldn’t over schedule myself again (HAHA.).
I was also planning on becoming a vegetarian! Or reduce my meat intake, at least.
And that was all I had planned. I felt planning was not something I should do, so I didn’t. Did that work out? Kind of xD
As for my goals… let’s see how those went!
- Pay my stupid debt.
Nope. That didn’t work out at all xD I didn’t manage to make much more than the barely minimum every month, and the extra money I used on other things. It still haunts me! xD;
- Save Money
Nope again xD I did save short-term for specific things I wanted, making commission-fundraisers and so on, but I don’t have *savings*. I should though.
- Be orderly
I… got better at this. On and off. I downloaded organising apps, schedules, scheduled my household chores for when I was working outside from home, then when I returned I just got back to the chaos. I’m currently trying my best with a suit of Mac apps and HabitRPG xD So I did get better, though I still have plenty of room for improvement.
- Set my priorities straight.
I knew this was going to be a big year for that, and I think it was! I had a lot of fights with my boyfriend about our relationship and we came out strengthened and happy (more on that later), and I also set myself free. I think I know what I want now, though everything is very fuzzy… but it feels okay for things to be fuzzy, I’m no longer worried about it
So, 2013 was a big year, full of things! GOOD things! Also bad things that turned into good things for me in the long run
I didn’t document my life on this blog much, I resorted to tweeting, using my private personal Facebook as a diary and posting arts on tumblr and Facebook instead of deviantART.
(WARNING: THIS IS GOING TO BE SUPER LONG).
