All About 2016

I’m back after a super long unexplained hiatus. Explanation: Schoolwork. I do have a few posts lined up now though.

I made a lot of changes (& friends) this year, & even though some parts of this year weren’t too good, I wouldn’t change a second of it.

Since it’s the last day of 2016, here’s a rewind, like I’ve done for the past 2 years on this blog. 

Cheers to the 366 days gone by and the 365 days to come.

          Short Story Challenge

          Happy 2015, everybody! 😀 I found out from Anna Lee about a 24 hour short story writing challenge on Liam Wood’s blog, so here’s my attempt!

          Warning: Unedited, can have grammatical errors, & is definitely chock full of clichés. Character names not thought out. And last thing- the plot wasn’t thought out. At all. So I basically started writing without a plan & went where the story seemed to take me.

          ~

          I couldn’t sleep. Even after a long, tiring day of classes and all the drama that had gone down during lunch, I couldn’t sleep. This managed to amuse me, but nothing could prepare me for all the amusement that was heading my way that night (or, should I say, morning, considering that it was almost 1 am).

          I climbed out of bed & instantly groaned as my feet hit the floor, sending a stabbing pain through my right calf & knee. I mentally cursed myself for what felt like the billionth time for not having walked away from the scene in the cafeteria without managing to hit my right leg on a nearby chair (although I don’t think that making a graceful exit would’ve helped my case much, since I’d already supposedly messed up enough, but at least my leg wouldn’t have been hurting).

          My Resolutions for 2015

          The title is pretty self-explanatory, I think. These are my resolutions for 2015, along with a tiny explanation of each.

          #1. Blog more.

          Hmm…you know. I would just like to blog a bit more & about stuff other than my bucket list adventures (Huh?Adventures?Seriously?) & the collages that I keep making.

          #2. Get a Wreck This Journal (& complete it).

          I keep seeing Wreck This Journals popping up everywhere (errr…Pinterest & Polyvore, actually) & I think they’re pretty rad. I really want to try it out, so that sums up the reason for making this kinda-weird resolution.

          #3. Become organized.

          My folders, my desk, my wardrobe, my notebooks, everything- literally everything – always looks like a storm has just passed through it. And it has started to bug me, so getting organized sounds like the best solution right now.

          #4. Get awesome grades.

          Self-explanatory. Who doesn’t want great grades?

          #5. Make an effort to talk to new people.

          Because in 2014, I realized that not everyone around is as bad as I make them out to be.

          I might post an update in (around) June or July of how I’m doing with these resolutions.

          See ya guys in 2015! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

          Cheers!

          How are you doing with coming up with resolutions?

          2014 was a weird year for me, in both a good way & a bad way. And I don’t know whether you can tell or not, but I just learned that I suck at writing end-of-the-year posts (as this is my first one ever ha XD).
