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.
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.
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.
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.
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 was one of the best parts of this year. Here are some stats:
Posts: 69 and counting
Interview Swap with Mirra
The Spelling Bee Catastrophe
Stereotypes That I Hate
Best Friends Forever
Feminism and Being a “Girly” Girl
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?
