Here’s to Another Shitty New Year
From personal to international affairs, 2016 was a year so bad I even wondered sometimes if I’m just a piece of shit, like literally, a worthless piece of shit excreted through Earth’s asshole. I can only hope it will get better from here, I mean it should right? I hit rock bottom, physically and mentally drained, so much to the point that I feel the only direction left for me is to go back up.
It even got to the point I thought about quitting blogging sometime last year, but I couldn’t stop. And the fact that I was already in the middle of preparing some of my bigger plans (12 Days, Anniversary Guest Posts, etc…) only served as a fuel to continue blogging. “It’s dumb to quit since I was already in the midst of preparation”, I thought, as I tried my best to maintain my blog’s activity while waiting to execute those plans like 12 Days at the necessary dates.
Despite the successful endeavor, I still went through several grueling months where I was just too physically exhausted to write anything, too moody to produce any thoughts. You might not notice that and honestly, my habit of conserving dozens of posts to publish at later dates became the ultimate lifeline for this blog. If I were to use up all my “reserves” without a care in the world, this blog would have been long dead in the water.
…which leads me to my next question. If say I were to ask for guest posts on my blog, will anyone be interested? I do have some preferences on the type of posts though (but other than generic posts like reviews/impressions, most should be fine, I think). I’m asking this just to gauge an interest for now, as it’s still a big question mark for me at the moment. This will probably be one of those experimental things where I will figure things out along the way until a preferred format eventually comes about. That is, if anyone’s even interested though, feel free to e-mail me if you do.
Well, switching gears. Here’s to another shitty new year to you. I hope your year hasn’t been as worse as mine, and if it was, I hope it gets better this year for you too. Cheers.
