Happy new year, everyone!
2014 was a tough year for me. I spent the first half of it working a very lonely graveyard shift with a supervisor who was unkind to me . I lived in a city far away from my friends and family. Someone I cared about took her own life. Later in the year, I got caught up in the stupidest drama stuff ever.
I do not think this year was a bad year for me. I had to rely on God more than I ever had before, and that strengthened my faith greatly. When I was in that city far way, I found a wonderful, loving church family that I was very sorry to leave. I got to know an Aunty better. I have met many fantastic people, and I even made a new online friend, Aceofstars16 which I haven't done in a long time, and I am so very, very glad I did Although moving away from my parents house went badly the first time, I am now living with very wonderful people who are kind to me. I read some excellent books, webcomics, and anime. I have grown and changed a lot, and in a good way. Although there were some parts that hurt a lot, I wouldn't take this year back.
Anyways, last year my New Years Resolution was to make a deviation every month. I failed. There were some months when I was just too busy or stressed. Not only that, but although I managed to finish the second draft of my book, which was fantastic, I then proceeded to write very sparsely from April onward, and I got into this terrible writing slump I couldn't get out of. Even if I didn't completely succeed though, I filled my gallery with all sorts of beautiful new art ^^ So I did accomplish something!
This year, I would like to try again for a deviation a month. I believe this will be easier now that I have a laptop that is faster and actually capable of connecting to the internet. I would also like to write 300 words a day. It is a very small, accomplishable goal that I believe I will be able to manage. So here's to 2015!
