2018 is almost upon us and it’s super weird. Where’d 2017 go???
2017 has been a very testing year for me.
There has been a lot of things that have gone terrible, but I’ve also learned more about myself and grown as a person.
There’s still a lot I need to learn and still things I want to change with myself, but I’m also happy to see the changes and know how much I’ve grown already.
I’ve accepted that I simply do not like being out and being supersocial, haha.
I have always preferred being at home, but if I’m out visiting people, I prefer it when it can be in a superchill environment, if you know what I mean? Like, I can bring my 3ds, and whoever I’m visiting won’t mind if I sit with it every now and then, but we can still be super social and just enjoy each others company.
I never really was much of a party person.
Although in 2017 I’ve probably partied more than I have for the last 5-10 years. I only really have one party I go to every year, and that’s to my sisters birthday party.
I’m not an easy person to be with, and I can admit that myself. After all, I have to live with myself every day of my life.
I’ve also learned to just accept that I may need help from time to time. I’ve also seeked help, and I’m waiting for allergy tests from the doctor and other personal things.
I started streaming last year in September, and I had a lot of thoughts before I started. I saved up for a little over a year to be able to afford a capture card 3ds, because I wanted to stream with good quality.
I was sooooo nervous when I started, and realising how much work it is, I lost motivation and had a big break until January this year.
In this years first stream, in January, I got soooo many new people coming to my stream.
It was quite overwhelming, but also very motivating and it made me want to continue doing it.
I know I’ve been having a lot of breaks from this stream this year, but I also feel like I’ve been getting better at this whole streaming thing.
I’ve gone through a lot of the clips made by you guys, and I’ve seen my layout change a couple times, as I’ve been experimenting with it and also working out something that I want to stick with. Something I’m very happy with.
My current layout is great, I’m very proud of it, because it’s something I’ve made myself and I’ve experimented with some new things in it, such as the camera shape, colours, and fonts.
I hope to be a better streamer next year and I look forward to working harder.
2018 is going to be the year I focus on streaming a whole lot more, which is also why I’m considering NOT joining theatre next year.
Mini Noot started in first grade at school this year, in August. He’s already learned how to read, write and do mathematics. He already knew how to speak english very well and I think he is at the top of his class in that subject.
He loooooves math, but he’s also starting to really like reading and writing. At first he didn’t like it, which is to be expected, since he didn’t know how to do it very well.
I’m super proud of him, because he’s come so far already and he hasn’t even gone to school for a year?!
It’s been a test for me aswell, having to help him with homework and also keep motivating him and being positive towards school. It’s something I look forward to doing, because I see him grow even more, he’s getting his own opinions and he’s learning what he likes and what he doesn’t like.
Plus he’s getting introduced to a whole lot of new things now!
I’m looking forward to the new year, 2018, but I’m also scared.
I don’t know where I’ll be in a year or what’s going to happen in 2018, but I’m excited to find out.
I’m looking forward to get new experiences, meet more people, work hard and get better at streaming and also seeing Mini Noot grow.
Let’s have a fantastic 2018 together!
