The year is nearly over. Isn’t it crazy? 2020 sounds so weird. And I normally say “two-thousand-nineteen” instead of “twenty-nineteen.” So now I have to change my thinking unless I want to say “two-thousand-twenty.” And that sounds weird so I guess I’ll need to change my ways.
Ok, I strongly relate to this meme:
Anyway! I’m going to finish the year off by writing a few posts about 2019 and 2020. This week I’m going to sum up my year of 2019.
Well, I published my first book, The Bruised Dream (TBD). That’s been a huge leap for me this year! I started another story, but it got set aside a few months ago so I could focus on school and getting TBD ready. This year I hope to pick it up, dust it off and bring it back to life.
This September I started at the public high school to see how it goes. So far it’s been really good! It does take away a lot of my time, so it makes me weigh all my options. I don’t have near as much time to write as I used to, and my writing means a lot to me.
I’ve also been struggling to find time to read this year, but this month it’s actually gotten better. Last week I cleaned and totally rearranged my room, so now I have a bean bag right beside my bookshelf and tons of notebooks stacked on the side. It’s perfect for me to regenerate in my room while listening to music and journaling/reading.
So yep! That’s my tiny tiny summary of 2019. I’m sure 2020 will be an interesting year, but it’s always sad to leave a familiar year behind. And for some reason I always feel very melancholy thinking about it. I just want to capture these moments forever. I don’t want everyone to grow up and leave for college! But time will never stop ticking, so I should just be content with every moment. 🙂
That’s all I have to say for this week! Next week I’ll be talking about my favourite reads of this year, and the week after that will be about 2020.
Until then! 😁
