It has been a long time, hasn’t it? Things have been a little crazy for me. As most of you know, my dad passed away in September of 2017 and life has just not been the same. Some days I felt like it was getting worse. Some days I wanted to run away to a place where no one knew me and start life all over again. But here I am. I am okay…for the most part. I made it through Christmas fairly well, but the new year was harder to get through. I guess it’s because I have entered the new year with one vital person missing.
It has been hard, as anyone that has lost a parent would know. I have had friends help me through.
But that brings me here today. To tell you all HAPPY NEW YEAR. And to promise that I am working on getting my blog back up and running. What am I going to do with this blog? I am still not sure. Hopefully there will be a name change in the future, going back to Awkward Heather instead of readerwriteredreamer. I want a shorter web address. I do hope that something great comes of this. Maybe I can go back to what it was before. Book reviews, movie reviews, Anime, and some writing thrown in there. It’s all the things I love in one place. Who said a blog has to follow one set format? And I plan on seeing more movies this year!
I actually have a few plans for this year that are going to be fantastic. I am even planning a trip to California at some point this year, and that is something I am super excited about. I haven’t sat down and written out my 2018 goals yet, but I will be doing that today. I am just trying to get my mind focused again. I worked two jobs for a few weeks. I haven’t been reading. I have not finished a book since September. Which makes me sad since I was ahead of the game for a little bit on my reading goal. But when things change in life…major changes…it’s hard to keep on track.
I will update you all on my goals for 2018 as soon as I know what they are. As of right now, the biggest goal is to get back to something normal, like it was before my dad passed away.
Tell me, What are your 2018 goals?
One thought on “Happy New Year!”
My goal is to make money and move. I need to be more independent and have a change of scenery. Cannot wait for more posts!
