two thousand and seventeen, i bid you farewell

Yet another New Years post, are you surprised?

Another year gone and another year coming, time goes and goes and goes. It feels like I was just writing my 2016 Resolutions post and my 2015 Resolutions post.

These past few days I've really been thinking and reflecting on 2017, and thinking a lot how I want 2018 to go. Resolutions blah blah

But instead of talking about 2018, I wanted to talk about 2017 today. I have 365 days to think about, I want to dedicate one more day to the wake of 2017's death (heh).

Here's to another year! Thank you 2017!

2017 was neither bad nor good, but I feel like that's how every year should and will be. There will be bad times, but good times that will (hopefully) overpower them. Do your best to make more good times and move on from the bad. Moving on, prosperity and positivity, that is 2018. - journal entry from (way) early in the morning 1.1.18
