Wishing you an amazing 2023!

The new year is upon us and I would like to take the time and write a blog post to kind of recap this year. Where did the time go? It feels to me that this year went by even faster than the previous year, or is it just me? But, it was a great year nonetheless. I feel that I have changed a lot this year. Sure, there were moments where I needed to detach myself a little bit, but I was aware of my thoughts and feelings, and I got through it.

I have been streaming on Twitch a lot this year and I want to take the moment to acknowledge my gratitude for all the love and support I have received from everyone who came across my channel. Especially to those who have stuck around the entire year. Thank you for making me feel loved and appreciated. In a way a lot of you have dragged me out of my shell more and you all made me feel I can be my silly self and not care about what others think. I gained much more confidence and I am appreciate that a lot. I feel that this can only lead to better and bigger things, and I thank you for that. I am looking forward to start streams again in the new year!

The next thing I am grateful for, or happy about rather, is being back in contact with my mother. Mom and I had a falling out about four years ago and we had no contact whatsoever. Until my dad was hospitalized earlier this year and that brought us back together again. And it has been great since then. Family is back together! My mom is currently 68 and my dad is 73, and I hope to have them around for a very long time.

Since recently I have been posting a shit load of reels/short form videos on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. They are relatable reels that are mostly cringey, but I am having so much fun with it! Now, I am not the kind of person who focuses on numbers, but they have been doing pretty good on YouTube. On Instagram I even got over 10k views on a few of them. But still, they’re just numbers. I am just having a blast making them, and that’s all that matters. But who knows, maybe more of them will blow up in the new year! That would be amazing. I will continue posting them, even tho many are ridiculously cringey. But that’s the fun part. I don’t take myself too seriously. That’s also another thing I learned to embrace more, which is poking fun at myself, while pretending I am a big deal, which I am clearly not. I don’t know how to explain it. I’m a weirdo. I guess that’s what not taking yourself seriously is.

I don’t have any resolutions for the new year. I actually find having resolutions weird, but that’s just me. Why wait and change something in your life when it’s the new year, when you can make changes right now? It never makes sense to me why people are like “new year, new me” bull shit. The only thing I wish is that only good vibes and good things will happen. And that is all. Of course I wish that for everyone.

So, yeah! That’s all for now, folks! I hope you all have a great New Year’s Eve! Stay safe and I will definitely see you again in 2023! Happy new year!

Merry Christmas

It’s been a while since I have posted a new blog post. It’s Christmas today and it feels like it’s a good time to post a little something. First of all, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. May it be filled with lots of joy and laughter. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas at all I wish you a fabulous weekend.

I hope everyone is doing well. I am doing pretty good. I am currently taking a little break from streaming on Twitch. Mainly to just decompress a little bit and having some ‘me’ time, which is always a good thing. I will be back streaming on January 6th.

Christmas isn’t really a holiday I celebrate like most people. As an introvert I usually prefer to just do nothing and be by myself. And that’s what I am doing again this year. I will spend some quality time with the folks the day after Christmas, but that’s it. I don’t really care for anything fancy or be around too much people. It’s not just for me. I used to feel weird about that, mainly because when you tell other people that you prefer to be along they gave you weird looks or they wonder why. But for the last year or two I really don’t care about what other people think about it. Just let me do what I want. I enjoy being by myself and make a nice dinner and treat myself to things I love. It’s nice! And speaking of treating myself, I have been spoiling myself a lot this holiday season.

Since recently I started collecting Funko Pops from The Walking Dead, since that’s my favorite show. And I love it! I currently have eight Funko Pops and I cannot wait to collect more from The Walking Dead. I also got three of The Golden Girls, since that’s also one of my favorite shows, every since I was young! I’d love to have all the Funko Pops from my favorite shows! I definitely want to have ones from Friends as well! So yeah, this holiday season I have been spoiling myself with pops. And I love it!

Speaking of Friends, I treated myself and got the Central Perk Lego set! I actually have been spending hours last night building it. And it’s super cool! I bought this display cabinet from Ikea where I will display all of my Funko Pops and the Lego build of Central Perk will be added to it as well. Super fun!

I also got myself a new Razer gaming mouse for my PC and some new clothes as well.

So, yeah! The year is almost over and I still cannot believe how fast this year went. It’s crazy! I have nothing planned for New Years Eve. It will be the same, just being by myself, have some bubblies and couch hang. Just heavenly. And I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the new year. It’s safe to say that mentally I feel pretty good again. I feel more secure and confident about myself and I really hope that will be useful when it comes to new things. But I think I will post a separate blog post before the new year starts.

But, anyway! That’s all I have to report. I just wanted to wish every happy holidays. I know that the holidays are rough for a lot of people and I just want to say that my thoughts are with you. And that I am sending you lots of strength to get through it.

Thanks, everyone! I will be back again real soon!
