It might be too early to be doing a look-back on the year but whatever this is my life and this is what I need to do for my head right now

I’m in a strange transitionary period right now and also just feeling very reflective

It feels like a million years ago already, but I was in a full-fledged committed relationship at the beginning of this year. Looking to move in together and all that.
And then I broke up with him because - surprise - he was an awful and terrible boyfriend.
Then I fell into another relationship that was sloppy and I ended that one, too. Dating was weird this year but I’m looking forward to men in 2019.

At the end of last year I switched job roles at the restaurant from serving/bartending to lead hostess which is more on the management end of things.
Which led to a whole bunch of changes:

1. Making a lot less money which meant
2. I had to move and find a roommate
3. The girl hired to replace me is a fine girl but is lazy and has little work ethic


In switching job roles I became more marketable and will have at least one job during the closure of our restaurant. Maybe 2 if the first one is part time. Both of which are things that are in my skill set but nothing I’ve ever actually done before.

I had a falling out with one of my best friends a few months after he moved into my neighborhood
Yeah I miss our friendship but he burned me pretty bad and I’m just not willing to open up my arms to him quite yet. He’s come around and I’ve agreed to be cordial in public - and that’s where we are.

I’ve been researching and starting applications to schools before I decided to just apply to the one
And got rejected

But it’s all okay because I’m feeling more confident and sure of myself and I am positive for the new year

There will be lots of changes and shifts and rifts and I’m generally just very excited.

Anyone have any 2018 reflections or 2019 projections to share?

2019 will probably be a carbon copy of 2018.

Hope the new year brings you happiness, Liag x

This year has been a sht fest.
At the beginning of the year I lived in an 8 bedroom house, but it was never my home.
I found out I was pregnant and then was made homeless a day before my 25th birthday.
I had a miscarriage and almost got divorced. I was due to give birth this month.
Now I am living in a shared house with a load of weirdos and I'm happier than I was at the start of the year.
Today I got 5 piercings in one go, and I'm in bloody pain. Every single one bled. But wth I've wanted every one of them since I was 18.

Today I thought about YT a lot, I haven't been on in 5 years.

Next year I'll hopefully be in a beautiful house where my son has a lovely big garden to play and I can finally get him out of my bed.

2018 was...interesting.

My pastor retired (that's a big deal, as I work at my church) I was on the committee to hire our new one.

Had a really rough go of getting used to the new one...and we are still struggling with out communication.

Had a miscarriage november of 17...but didn't really start to emotionally deal with it until 18...

Kids grew up

We were in a massive car accident in September was pretty awful. We are all ok physically, but I'm still dealing with some emotional stuff.

Overall was less insane than some of my previous years .. I'm grateful for that.

2019 will bring a new maybe it's just the calm before the storm.

2018 has been pretty different to how I imagined it. My first child was born in January and I was on maternity leave for the first 8 months of the year. I also had a seven week house guest who used to be one of my closest friends but that put a big strain on our friendship. My brother got a passport and visited the UK for the first time. I told my dad how sh*tty he's been and then fell right back into the same crap with him..

Going back to work has been harder than I expected.

2019 will certainly hold some job changes for me as our branch is closing soon.

Uh, I got a promotion. But aside from that it's been normal incremental adult changes. Drink less, eat better, exercise, socialize in different groups. Dated some, nothing serious. I've been kinda chill this year. On to the next one.

2018 was kind of rough on me right from New year day.
The vacation in July was nice though.

Had a good year.

My husbands youngest had a baby daughter.

My granddaughter likes the funny faces on facebook chat phone so she actually asks her dad to call.

Still trying to decide between ham or turkey for Christmas lunch.

Work changed. Due to my own efforts. Feel as though I was able to will forward career progress. Kind of a revelation.

But that’s been every year for the past few years. This was just the most significant forward career move.

Ultimately it’s been a little overwhelming.

2018 blows. I'm over it

The end of 2015 and all of 2016 (aside from my second being born) and most of 2017 was really bad for me.

2018 I got on a better path. I feel so much better now, and more secure. Paid double mortgage every month in 2018. Won a 7k furnace, bought a new hot water heater, did some small home repairs. Eating well, exercising. Having fun with the mom life. Kindergarten was started, two year old is speaking in sentences now. The start of 2018 my husband was promoted and he’s getting another promotion soon.

Outlook is good for 2019. I have some goals that I am hoping to meet.

2018 has been a bit of a wash. Road in to it high on the coat tails of 2017 accomplishments and not a lot has really come through yet for 2018. I’m laying the groundwork for a couple of major moves career wise but it’ll be a while before I know if it pans out.

I've been in a holding pattern for 2018. Nothing good, nothing bad, just a year older.

Twenty eighteen started of mad promising. I had lost a ton of weight, had a fun birthday, a great new job, a boo thang that carried over from twenty seventeen. My family came to visit and got an even better job. Then a couple of months ago everything went to poo. Boo thang and I broke up, and even though I initiated it, it was still very hard. Friend issues had me down for most of the year. My anxiety moved in for good. My oldest sister died on November fourth, and honestly, its been all downhill from there. I havent slept more than 3 hours a night. Cant sleep in my bed. I still have awesome job tho(knock on wood), and they are opening a place in L. A. in March. Really thinking of running off and joining the crew there.

I dont really have any expectations for twenty nineteen, good or bad. Just trying to stay afloat.

This was a weird year for me. I've had some of the worst months of my life and honestly some of the best. So Libra.

When it started I was in a very very low place after having broken up with Paper 6 months before. I was moving in with my mom and I had to give up my cats (one of them passed away later). I was down in the dumps and just trying to figure out where the hell my life was going.

I'm starting to figure it out. I've gotten way healthier than I've ever been. I paid off all my debt and raised my credit score from 400 to 700.There is still so much missing

I lost a lot this year but that ok. We will always lose things and gain things. I'm honestly pretty low again and feel like I'm in the same place. I'm moving in with my dad to help take care of him. Already started moving my stuff.

I really hope next year everything will finally click and I can figure out how to be happy.

I'm sorry about your sister.

2018's been pretty good, but nothing unusual to report other than we went to Disney World this year.

Seems for most 2018 was just a dud year. A bad thing here. A meh thing there.
I hope for you all that 2019 brings clarity and growth.

And for those who had a wonderful 2018, I hope you can carry that projection for at least one more year. And then teach us all your tricks.

I didn’t work at all this year. It’s been alright!
