Well, Hello There 2018!

Hello, it's your friendly neighborhood moustached neighbor! (Heh heh, sorry, another DanTDM reference!)

GUYS!!!!

IT'S 2018!!!!!

2017 IS GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2017 started off with me coming home from the youth retreat after driving all night. I was exhausted but happy to be home.

2018 started off with me starting to write this post and listening to Splatoon music. Not quite as eventful but, eh, who cares. XD

Didja guys stay up all night? I didn't, actually. I mean, I saw the clock at 12AM but I was in bed, almost asleep. XD

What did you guys do to celebrate? My family doesn't do a whole lot but on New Years Eve we had a super yummy supper of bacon wrapped wieners, Caesar salad, chicken wings, and pizza buns. It was all SO good! :o We also played a game called Balderdash which was creative and fun! Before supper, though, me and Koolest and my brother watched DanTDM on our Wii U and then my brother played Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild WHICH IS SO COOL!!!!!! :O You can hunt animals with your bow and arrow, climb mountains or pretty much anything, make food in a pot over a fire, catch fish, and AHHH, it's awesome. XD

Okay! Enough with my little chitchat!

Today's New Years! (Oops, I didn't end up finishing this post on New Years...)

So I'm going to be doing a little New Years post. (I said "little" because I don't have a whole lot of time to write it... heh.)

Looking back at 2017, it was a good, good year. But in some ways, it wasn't as good as I hoped. The main reason being that many of our AJ Blogger friends have quit. And I miss them all so badly. :(

But I try to look at the good of 2017!

Here's a small list of some of what I found good about 2017:
  • I got closer to God and started to really enjoy praise and worship at my church or church in general.
  • I got super close to some AJ Bloggers due to being able to talk to a lot of them in one place. (Y'all rock. ^-^)
  • I started to learn how to really enjoy life.
  • I made tons of awesome memories in the summer such as biking in the rain after getting ice cream blizzards (and having one explode on me, XD) or swimming out in the lake with my family on vacation or walking Mocha or biking with Koolest and than stopping somewhere random just to talk or talking for hours with the AJ Bloggers or watching TV shows with my siblings or biking fast down the sidewalks of my city.
  • I got more connected into my nursery class at church.
  • I learned how to socialize a bit more.
  • I drew more and got better.
  • I wrote more and got better.
  • The Maze Runner series captured me and I seriously am the biggest fangirl for it.
  • I found out Splatoon music is awesome. (XD)
  • I found out DanTDM is an awesome, hilarious (and kid friendly) YouTuber and now love watching him on our Wii U with Koolest and my brother.
  • I hung out with my siblings more.
  • I found out that my AJ Blogger friends have my back.
I could keep going on but I think I'll stop here!

I hope you all can look back at 2017 and see that it was a good year! If you can't see it at first, look harder!

Alright, before I end this post off, let's have a little mini throwback. ^.^ I'll be looking at 2017 posts and pick random highlights. Throwbacks are fun so WOO! XD

  2. Yus DanTDM! He IS awesome and hilarious.
    I stayed up all night. My family celebrates New Year by eating special foods, and we have New Years leis, noisemakers, and stuffz.
    Oh, I forgot sheep came out in my birthday month XD!
    You should have the Summer Splah Party this year because I didn't go last year. I was at my grandparents for Canada Day or else I would've gone to the Canada Day party.
    That's a pretty picture.
    I am excited to see what 2018 has in store.
