2017 Reflection

Hey Dreamers! I can’t believe that 2017 is coming to an end. This year has been so amazing! I’ve loved every moment of this year and I’m so excited for what 2018 has in store for me. I wanted to reflect on this year to see what I’ve achieved.

Resolutions

I did a post on my new year’s resolutions this year. And you can go back and read it, but beware! It’s not my best post. But, I wanted to reflect on how I did on my resolutions.

Green= Accomplished

Purple= Kind of accomplished

Red= Not Accomplished

Write in my diary everyday

I actually did pretty well on this, in the first few months. Then we went to India, during summer vacation and I was, so busy that I didn’t have the energy or time to write in it. When we came back, I didn’t feel like writing in it, so I took a long break. Then, one of my favorite teachers started a “Creative Journaling” club. I went to the club with my friends and I started a new journal. I started feeling more comfortable with the new journal. So I don’t write in it everyday, but I do write in it often.

Try writing everyday

I definitely wrote a lot more this year, but I don’t think I wrote everyday.  But, I definitely think I improved at writing.

Improve at music and art

Yes! I think I improved a lot at playing the piano. I learnt a lot more. I also did a lo of art this year. I have this sketchbook that I’ve drawn a lot in, and I can really see how much I’ve improved.

Blog often

I am so proud of myself for this one. I blogged so much more this year, and I enjoyed it so much. The results of blogging often, made me really happy.

Study well

I wasn’t really sure about this one, but I think I studied pretty well.

Try something new

I’m not sure about this one either. I’m sure I did try some new things, but I just can’t remember them right now.

Read a lot

I did read a lot! I’ve read seventy four books (including a few re-reads) and counting.

Have the best year

Definitely one of the best!

Blogging

Blogging was one of the best parts of this year. Here are some stats:

Followers: 72

Visitors: 855

Views: 2408

Posts: 69 and counting

Favorite posts:

Reading

So, as you know I’m a book dragon. I love reading. So, on Goodreads, the website lets you put a reading goal for yourself. I decided to do 75 books and I’m at 74!!! (By the way, if you’re on Goodreads, here’s my profile, so we can be friends!)

Books that I read this year:

And I’m currently reading, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Lodestar

So . . . .

Believe it or not, some people red a LOT more.

So that’s it for this post. Tell me in the comments What were some of your favorite parts of 2017?

Christmas Art

Hey Dreamers! I know, I know, I know, that I’ve posted for the third day in a row. But it’s Christmas! I finished some Christmas Art and I wanted to show you guys before Christmas.

                                  Oh Deer! It’s Christmas!

This was a lot of fun to draw. I colored them with my Prismacolors which are so amazing to color with! I also made this digital Christmas card for you guys.

What did you think of my drawing? Tell me in the comments. I promise I won’t post three days in a row now. Or will I?

Anyways,

 

It’s been a year . . .

Hey Dreamers! This is going to be a really short post. I opened this blog on December 3rd 2016, but I had been blogging since before. I left my older blog, because I needed a fresh start. My stats have been amazing, and I know I couldn’t have done it, if I was still on my other blog. I have 70 followers! I am so so so so so so so so  grateful that you guys take the the time to read my posts and comment on them. I’m so glad that I started blogging. You guys impact me in such an amazing way. I’ve met some amazing bloggers and you guys make my days so much better. Thank you so much. ♥

Christmas Season ~ A Poem

Christmas lights twinkle,

in the small town streets

In the kind of weather,

nothing can beat

Flurries of snow,

Oh, I know!

How, so very nice,

Why can’t this season 

come twice?

The season of giving,

This should be the

way of living

With family and friends,

Love that never ends

♥♥♥
