Here’s your usual “a year in review” blog post, last year I made one titled 2015, a year in review, it was a blog entry speaking about my 2014 resolutions and then my 2016 resolutions which guess what = I’ll review them and see if I did it and I’ll talk about my 2017 ones. Some people might find them stupid, and even I was one of them, but in a way I like to see Jan 1st as a ‘new day/new year’ you know the whole ‘new year, new me’ which I’m going to be the same person, let’s be real, but in a way to change how I want to perceive myself. So let’s get on with it.
The one thing that has always fascinated me by most standards is the evolution of language in not only my personal life but in the lives of many people. I think from my own evolution of language at least with the Internet is that I used to use short language ‘u/r/ppl/etc’ you know that text language when I was between 8 – 13, roughly when I was maybe 13 till about 18 I would turn my head up against text language “use the word you, not u” I found it absolutely stupid people wouldn’t use the correct word.
I have two things to brag about if you will, both of them are achievements that I never thought I’d complete but hey look at where we are now~ though first off the idea of bragging rights sure is interesting, the fact that there are definitions of this term that doesn’t really need a definition like it does? Maybe that’s my own opinion on it, and maybe it doesn’t make too much sense but bragging rights as a phrase or a sentence are just so interesting to me in some silly way. Maybe this is a weird way to open up a blog post, but this blog is generally about me and my life so… Okay onto the bragging~
I didn’t post last week because I was busy writing, and by busy writing I mean I avoided posting, and also I was busy writing. But today is day 16 and I’m at 34,062 words (past day 20 but 938 words from day 21’s word count). The thing is, I’m proud of myself, I’ve written more in my 2016 novel compared to my 2015, 2014, 2009 and 2008 novels. 2015 novel came to 17,284 at day 18 (word count for that day is 30k), 2014 novel came to 20,762 at day 22 (word count for that day is 33,333), 2009 came to 66 words not too sure at what day and 2008 came to 57 words also not too sure at what day.
Being an adult sucks. Okay, sure, maybe like little bits here there are good, I don’t have to ask my parents if I can go somewhere (though in all honestly I still do sometimes, but recently it’s not been as bad), I can drink alcohol on a Tuesday night if I want, I can drink alcohol period is nice, I believe I’ve matured enough to be able to take on both side of an argument (though I’ve always been motherly as I’ve had to grow up fast), my opinion is valued… sometimes, I guess being 21 people still see you as a kid.
I talk about NaNoWriMo a lot (sometimes I’ll just write it as Nano or Nanowrimo because of #effort), I have three posts about it on my blog, with one written two months ago. I’m eating that stuff up when it comes to blogs about Nano and YouTube videos (seriously, when you search Nanowrimo on YouTube from my account, all of the videos are deemed watched, even if they’re from 5 years ago, I might learn something useful from them).
I lived without a phone for two days, and it was hell. Okay, I’m not justifying the whole ‘millennials can’t live without the phone‘ trope, but hear me out for a second okay? Sure, millennials like their technology, and why not, it’s new and interesting and we can get jobs out of it (i.e. coding, graphic design, heck even writing!). I guess this whole thing links with my previous blog entry of Modern Romance.
