Ah I guess I should do some reminiscing, too. In the end, 2012 was filled with ups and downs for me. Like Hikari, I got supportership this year, but I got it from hard work! i.e. from the Easter Egg Hunt. ;D I met a lot of new people and made a lot of great friends, some of which I know I will cherish for life. As for the friends I already had, I'm happy to have rekindled a few friendships online and offline. I also got into activity spikes thrice, one in early 2012, another mid 2012, and yet another one before the year ended. That last one is what's causing all this activity from me at the very moment, probably the biggest spike because I got into so much things, and it's something I certainly aim to maintain throughout 2013 and the years to come. So it's not gonna be just a spike anymore; if things go well, it's going to have a constant intensity throughout.
As for the year's cons, there has been a lot tbh. Possibly the biggest thing that sucked about 2012 for me is missing a lot of people, both here at PC and irl. Graduating from high school and going into college meant a lot of goodbyes. A select few PC members I miss a lot have not even logged on this year. I also had to make terms with a lot of things, and adapt with many others: a new place to live in, a new place to study in, new people, new places, revelations, disappointment, indecision, and loneliness. So honestly, it got a little depressing at times. But there's no use feeling bad about the past.
2013 will be brighter. I know it will be. I know it's just a coincidence that the Gregorian calendar was set up this way; I mean the year can end in any other place within the Earth's revolutionary cycle after all. However, I still think that it's placed in this particular manner for a reason. There's no point in having the mentality that resolutions are just a fad, you'll easily forget about it, it's all in your head, etc. imo. I mean if everyone else believes it, and most importantly, if you believe it, then nothing's stopping you from making big changes at the beginning of the year. That's what I believe in, and that's how I'll welcome the new year.
So happy new year guys! I made sure to post this at 12:00 AM where I live. ;D
Okay 12:01 AM but whatever, lmao. \o/
