Year 2018: Q1 Review and Q2 Goals

 
This year, I started to use a Planner. For me, the good thing about it is that I tracked things that happened almost everyday, also did a weekly and monthly review. I set time to write, log, and reflect. The planning part, I did it weekly, but it doesn’t work for me as much – most of the time, things changed. The journaling part, works wonderfully.

To keep this post simpler and shorter, I’m making it as a list for the past 3 months review (January – March 2018), both good and bad.

Book Review: All The Bright Places

Source: Tumblr

I accidentally picked up this book since it wasn’t listed under my TBR. I was doing a research about depression, mental illness, etc as part of my writing project, and while searching for some materials to read, I stumbled upon this book.

Retrospective – Wrapping Up Year 2016

This year, there weren’t much things going on in my life. Most likely it was because of my long-term illnesses that limit my work, social life, travel and others. One of the main reason I quit my permanent job in late 2015 was because of it. As a result, I live with only little savings, which also means no travelling for this year as well. I left with no choice but to sacrifice my passion. 

However, one of the good things that I encountered throughout the year was about self-discovery. I spent plenty of time getting to know myself a little bit better, like things that I enjoyed having or stuff that I have always wanted to do but never had the chance. When I did a makeover to this blog this year, it was pleasing to find that writing my profile and describing more about myself was easier.

Book Stories of Storybooks

This is my first post in Year 2015 and I’m glad that 2014 is finally over. Not that I could anticipate the new chapter will have a definitive and perfect story-line, but relatively I am capable to hit the refresh button once more, and at the same time having considerate hopes and downsizing the expectations. No aggressive New Year’s resolution or 1 million bucket list of things would be made, except that my target will be narrowed down into 2 things this year – Books and Writing.

Beginning the first month of the year, I will initiate about the books.
