So for this one, I want you to talk about you! What did you do this year that you’re proud of?
I FINALLY hit 500 followers on bookstagram. It took a lot of work and is pretty remarkable seeing as I wasn’t present maybe three months of the year. I plan to be more dedicated next year and can’t wait to see where I can go with it.
I switched from a job where career advancement wasn’t possible and I couldn’t be out about my mental health and my LGBTQ+ status. To a job with the possibility of advancement, more hours, a nicer boss, better discounts and sister stores and just generally better overall. I also got my best friend a job at the same company so that’s good.
I’ve gone leaps and bounds from where I was at the beginning of the year. Part of the reason I was absent from bookstagram and blogging for part of the year is that my mental health wasn’t doing well, but I feel a lot stronger about my conditions, and I plan to advocate more on my blog and social media about my conditions in the new year.
I learned how to read tarot this year and it’s become one of my favorite things. It’s calming and fun.
This may be a little petty but I got a few new things this year I’ve been waiting a LONG time to get. I got an Apple Watch Series 3 which I love and it really helps with my health. And I got a Nintendo Switch which I’ve been waiting like 2 years since it came out for, I’ve been playing Pokemon Sword and Breath of the Wild and it is calming and amazing.
Finally one of the best things of the year is my new kitten Elsa, I lost my 16-year-old sweet baby in 2018 and I’d been grieving since and while no one can ever replace my dear sweet departed cat, Elsa has been making me laugh and makes my heart lighter. And she was born on the death date of my belated cat which I find to be a sign from my other cat.
What about you? What were some of the highlights of your year?
