It’s already the end of December: this year is ending soon, and everyone is looking back at the happenings of the lasts months, while taking resolutions for 2018.
I didn’t expect 2017 to be so harsh for me, I remember myself thinking it would probably be a quiet year, without great problems or changes in my life.
Well, it wasn’t.
I won’t talk about my personal problems here, all my close friends know what I’m talking about.
But I’m getting over it, I’m accepting and moving on, that’s the most important thing.
Let’s only talk about good events!
I’ve studied Japanese properly, without procrastinating as I used to.
From April to August, I focused a lot on my talking skills, which were terrible; the results weren’t amazing, but I improved and I was able to have decent conversations.
I’ve been to Japan again.
My second trip was way better than the first, maybe because I could communicate with people, which helped me to solve a lot of problems. Also, the weather was perfect, we were lucky!
I’ve made a lot of good friends on twitter, who encouraged me through hard times and helped me to overcome my fears.
I’ve been able to run this blog without dropping, which is an accomplishment I’m quite proud of.
I don’t think I made other resolutions last year, I didn’t set many goals.
But this time, I’m changing… I wanna aim higher! (well, at least I can dream)
In 2018, I want to:
- Be positive. I want to wake up in the morning and feel happy just for being alive, instead of sighing and complaining all the time.
Find a better job.
My contract with this awful office expires on May and I’m not going to renew it. The hell I’m going to spend one more day with those people, I’d rather starve!
When I’m done, I’ll take a break: I need some time to recharge myself, if this pressure doesn’t kill me before that date. I’ll think about myself for once, and what I want to do with my life, instead of just worrying about my family and their expectations.
It won’t be easy, but I’m sure I’ll become an happier person!
Study more Japanese.
I don’t plan on traveling to Japan again soon, not next year for sure; but I’ll go back someday and I want to be prepared!
I’ve been wanting to learn this language for years, I love how it sounds. This summer will probably be a good moment to finally start! and who knows, maybe I’ll take a trip there soon.
Improve my blog.
I’ve made great changes recently, but it was just the start; I’m going to improve it a lot next year! At least, I’ll do my best and I hope you’ll enjoy it! I’ll try to change my writing style, add more guest reviews, polls and different kind of articles otome related.
Write on another blog.
I’ve been asked to collaborate with a new blog about anime, games and Japan in general.
This project has not officially started yet, but I’m going to write a few articles to share my experiences and my opinions too. I hope you’ll come to check it out!
That’s all for now, but who knows what’s going to happen in the next months?
I’ll work hard for these plans to come true, and I’m ready to accept other challenges that will come!
Have you made your resolutions already?
