Hey, people of the Internet!
You guys have no idea how many drafts I have right now for future blog posts. (And I only started these drafts shortly after my last post.) I may or may not post them soon…we’ll see 😉
Just wanted to give another quick update. I promise, I have some really good stuff planned in my drafts folder. Look forward to those!
First things first, progress update on my New Year Resolutions. Number one was to re-connect with old friends, or just people I haven’t talked to in a while. I’ve actually reached out to a handful of people already – it was easier than I thought it was gonna be – and I’ve gotten some surprising responses. Particularly the one from my former bullying victim turned friend. I used to call her names and kick her feet a lot in primary school, but I also turned into one of her best friends at the time along with another girl who I have yet to reach out to. The tone of surprise and relief in her reply really made my day. And I felt bad I didn’t reach out even sooner, after finding out what she had been through the past few years since we last spoke (which was in January 2013). But it looks like everything’s going well for her now – she’s studying to be a teacher – and we’re already making plans to meet up some time and visit our old primary school. Lesson I learnt: Sometimes you can and will leave long-lasting impressions on people, whether you want to or not. So be nice to everyone, please. You don’t want to be the asshole that haunts them forever until they decide to off themselves. Please, please, please.
Second, I believe I talked about my art journal/art book project on a previous post many moons ago. Well, here’s the follow up. I’m in the process of editing the pages now, though I haven’t completed all of them yet. I’ve got everything formatted and ready for text, and I just left some blank spaces where the incomplete pages will go. Really excited about this! Not only do I really need/want the money, but I think it’ll be the first step to having something akin to a ‘job’. (I’m turning 21, guys. You know how it is…?)
Finally, I just wanted to say, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” And also refer y’all to some previous posts, like Still got the Valentine’s Day blues? where I suggest a bunch of other things you can do (solo) on Valentine’s Day or I Found True Love In A Dream if you wanna read about something that’ll get you in that romantic, lovey-dovey mood and/or instill hope in you finding love one day.
Yeah, I guess that’s it. Yay, 2 blog posts in 2 months! I’d say this is great progress, guys. Don’tcha think? The past couple of months have been strange and at the same time optimistic/hopeful. Can’t wait for how the rest of 2018 is gonna turn out. I really have good vibes about this year, and I still don’t know why.
Don’t be a stranger, or a bully. Just be nice.
