(This is my school diary 2012… the only hard copy diary I have. The others are on PC i.e. my secret one and my blogs )
After Christmas, here comes New Year! These holidays are seriously those that make me eat a lot! LOL Huge dinners, chocolate, ice cream…
Anyway today I was thinking (as always) about the year that is about to end in a few hours from now, 2011, how it affected my life, how it ruined me, how it strengthened me. I guess almost everyone is doing that and is making sure that the mistakes that have been made should not be repeated – we often fail at that – which is called the list of the new year’s resolutions.
I don’t usually write a list of resolutions. What I do after the midnight gong and firecrakers is (i) I write my very first entry in my diaries (school and secret) and (ii) I write in my Wishes Copybook.
What is a Wishes Copybook?
This should be opened and read or written in only on the 1st Jan of every year. In fact I write a list of what I wish to happen during the new year. Then I don’t open the copybook until next 1st Jan when I go through the list I wrote a year ago and tick the wishes which came true and cross those which didn’t. And I write another list for the new year… It’s fun.
I’m always reluctant to have a list of resolutions because I know that what I want now might be different from what I will want next year because I’m still a teenager thus I’m still growing and trying to find myself, to make my way through society and the adult life.
For 2012 though, I’m going to have only one resolution: to balance my life as a writer and as a student. I will thus try to write almost everyday while studying hard too. Fortunately I got myself into an everyday challenge starting next year (tomorrow): I have to write at least 250 words per day. Check out the badge on the right sidebar of this blog! You can participate too and you have a choice between challenging yourself to write 250, 500 or 1000 words a day. Just click on the image and you’ll be directed to the instructions. This challenge has been hosted by inkygirl.com!
I would have opted for the 500 words challenge but I know that when school will start… I will just feel overloaded.
So today is a time to think about the year that is to end and the year that is to come, to try to be a better person and catch up on our wrong deeds. I was thinking about my WordPress journey and I can’t stop feeling grateful of those 5 months of blogging on An Evil Nymph and of the awesome supportive community I met.
This morning when I woke up, I was then ready to write a new page: an ‘About This Blog‘ section! Just look up and you’ll see the tab next to ‘About Me’. Or if you’re too lazy due to the excessive celebration: just click HERE to read the blog page!
And so this is my last 2011 post and I wish you all a Happy New Year 2012!!!
