This year was crazy for me. I was at the lowest I’ve ever been, to the highest. January to me was a quiet awakening from hibernation, after a highly depressed Nov, and Dec. I spent the next few months using dolls as my creative outlet, even though I was still in a haze. April and May, and getting my first job, was the worst. April not so much, but mostly May. I wrote a bunch of crappy poems for April, with NaPoWriMo. I became very depressed in May about it, close to the worst I’ve ever been. (Nothing beats 10th grade). I felt better after I quit, and the next few months were about moving (again), which brought me many mixed feelings. August was in a dream. I wanted my summer to be this, this and that, but it wasn’t. Also, I became depressed yet again, but I knew it, and wanted to get out of it. September was better, and I made videos and the like. Also, the hurricane was super fun!
Like the little Walking Dead bit I put in there! I couldn’t resist. 😀 November was NaNoWriMo for me. I wrote a 50k word novel…or part of a novel. I loved the challenge, and yes I did win. However, I have to finish my book! I decided to take the holiday month off, and will start writing again in January. Around this time I also found a book that (as cliched as it sounds) changed my life. It is A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. It totally changed how I identified with my insane mind. I highly recommend it to everyone. 🙂 I got a new camera, which has brought out my creativity. Also, I reconnected with my cousin and now we are working on an awesome online magazine project!
So that is basically my 2011. I am ready for 2012, and I plan to take it one moment at a time, as should you.
I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. (I mean it.)
