I don’t even know where to begin. 2018 has been a year of high highs and low lows for me. But I’m happy to say I survived. I’ll see you all on the other side.
Here’s my 2018 in review.
January was great. I had a lot of motivation and inspiration. I started 2018 on a strong note. I began my second semester of third year. It feels so long ago now. I finished three books and reorganized my shelves. I submitted poems but never heard back.
February sucked. I was hit by a car. I spent the month resting and recovering. I read four novels. Fortunately, I felt good enough to attend my friend’s birthday party later in the month. It helped me get back on my feet.
March wasn’t easy, but I managed. I fell in love with baking. One day, I decided to download Duolingo and improve my Mandarin. I got through three books.
April was busy. I had finals. I found time to grab lunch with a friend I don’t see often afterwards. I started working as a digital marketing intern. I read three novels.
May went well. I worked all month. I hung out with some friends. I finished four books.
June wasn’t bad. I kept working. I changed the theme for my blog. I attended another birthday party. I finished three novels.
July felt short. I still worked. My cousin from China came over, so I spent more time with family. I read three books.
August felt even shorter. I attended an event for book bloggers. I finished three novels. I started driving again.
September signalled the arrival of school. My first semester of fourth year to be exact. I learned that my poem would be published in an anthology. I couldn’t believe it. Later I signed an author release form and approved the proof for print. I read four novels, rearranged my shelves. I continued to drive.
October was good. I won an academic scholarship. I had my midterms. I spent time with more relatives from China. I finished three books.
November stressed me out. Life. NaNoWriMo. School. I only managed to get through two novels. To be fair, one of them was fairly long. I drove.
December had its ups and downs. I finished classes and exams. I finally took my road test and got my G2 driver’s license. I finished 4 books too.
Thank you all for an amazing year. All the best in 2019!
