I’m not a New Years person, I’m not really a holiday person. Every time it gets to a big public holiday I try and do anything that keeps me in a normal routine. There are multiple reasons for this that run alongside me just been grumpy.
I find New Years to be the worst, my anxiety heightens and I find myself firmly in a depression cycle every year at this time. I mean this year I’ve been in the depression cycle for a couple of months already but hey ho that’s just the joys of my broken brain.
I always book New Year’s Eve off work now, I learnt the hard way and tried to work through it one year and it felt like the ground was falling away underneath my feet. It’s a great time to get off work, everyone assumes it’s because you want to party when in reality I just plan on napping. Anyway this year was no different, I planned to be in bed by 9am to avoid anything potentially triggering. Then I got a text from my brother saying he wanted to come over so he did, and well, we got fairly drunk and ended up in the pub, and I had a good night. So maybe it’s time to push myself more with these things.
Anyway that’s a whole different story and I can’t remember where I was going with it. This is mainly a blog to say Happy New Year to all of you guys!! Thank you for reading and following and for all your support.
So while I’ve got you here I thought I’d celebrate some of the achievements I’ve had on social media that I couldn’t have done without you guys!
- I went back to YouTube
- I started this blog
- I started a mental health blog
- I got 38K views on one of my videos
- I gained followers on this blog, slowly but the numbers keep creeping up
- I got my first lot of hate comments (I actually quite enjoyed this, getting hate comments means I’m getting views.)
- I met some amazing bloggers who are supportive and make some really cool content.
So thank you for making all that happen!
Now if you’ve noticed at the start of December I was all ready to start for Vlogmas, I made it about a week in and since then I’ve been pretty absent from YouTube and blogging. I’m not going to go into all the reasons why but let’s just say I’ve needed as much down time as I could get the past few weeks. Sometimes things just happen and you have to take the time to deal with them.
So here’s to the new year, let’s hope it’s a good one with lots of laughs and fun and content making! I got to spend today with my brothers and cuddling up to my 9 week old niece so it’s off to a good start already.
And while we’re talking New Years, I’m going to be having a natter and a blabber about resolutions, ideas and exciting channel stuff over on my YouTube channel in a couple of days so why not subscribe so you know when that happens! You can find it over on YouTube.com/fatfashionfilms
And once again,
HAPPY NEW YEAR
