2013 End of Year Tag

31 Dec

Today I bring you the inevitable New Year’s Eve post, which reflects upon the year that is coming to a close and looks towards the year that is dawning anew…actually, I think I’ll put my thoughts on the new year in a separate post, or else this will be too long.

First, the “End of Year Tag”, which is a tag created by Mimei on YouTube!

1. What was the best thing that happened to you this year?
…It’s hard to say! This year has been a wonderful year for me. There have been difficult times, which I’ll talk about next, but since I’ve learned from everything I have to say it’s been great overall. I’ve been greatly blessed this year as always, in so many ways, and I can’t really pick one thing!

2. What was the worst/most challenging thing that happened to you this year?
The most challenging thing for me this year was definitely the period of time in which I really struggled with self-worth, purpose, and frustrations from feeling like I wasn’t getting anywhere. I talked a lot about that in this post.

3. Tell us about your favourite game, TV show, app, song, etc. of 2013!
Game: Pokemon BW 2 (I have White 2)
TV show: I don’t really watch TV, but…with my family I have enjoyed watching Matlock, Diagnosis Murder, and The Lawrence Welk show ^^
App: Oh, this is tough… I guess I’ll have to say Evernote. I’ve also really loved the official Copic app this year! It makes it so much easier to keep track of which Copic markers I have.
Song: …Let’s say favorite artist of 2013, huh? Has to be Juice=Juice! Close second is Morning Musume. They’ve been amazing lately, and I’ve loved all of Juice=Juice’s releases (*^_^*)

4. Show us the 3 best things you bought this year!
1- iMac! Though I didn’t buy it–well, I did pay $300 of it, but I don’t even consider that when I think about it! It was such a tremendous gift from my parents, one which I had really given up hope on getting this year, and yet…somehow I did. ;v;
2- two new combs! (lol) These were a birthday gift from my mom (so again, I didn’t buy them). They work so well with both wet hair and dry hair and I am very happy to have them!
3- Um…I don’t know. XD I keep thinking about gifts I’ve received rather than things I’ve bought for myself… I got new Copics, which was amazing, but again, they were a gift. ^^;

5. What’s your New Year’s Resolution?
My New Year’s Resolution is, in one phrase, to be more proactive. That has been one of my main goals this year, and I have done quite well at it, I think! But I could still be better >_<

TAG PEOPLE!: I tag YOU! Tell me in the comments, make a video, or write a post and leave a link to it below! I’d love to see~


This year, I wanted to do a lot of things…and some things I did; others I didn’t. But the main thing is how much I have learned in this year through everything, and how much I’ve grown; the progress I’ve made… I’ve learned a lot about trusting God this year, and about being patient and not trying to be perfect or do everything by myself, as I have tried to do before.

Thank you, God, for everything!

Oh, there are fireworks going off right now, but I keep missing them–I hear them and go to look, but they’ve stopped, so I go back to my computer and the fireworks go off again. ^^;

I hope everyone is having a great New Year’s Eve/Day!!! ♡
