Another Year - Here I am

Happy New Year!!!
Yea, I know I'm late to the party but as it always said "Better Late than Never!" And I believe in that statement! Of course I do believe there are moments where one shouldn't be late.

2016 was filled with some really amazing highs and some really lows but overall the year was the best of times. I got to visit New York again and got to see #HAM4HAM. I didn't win the lottery for tickets but getting to experience that was out of this world. I got to visit Washington D.C. for the first time too! I went back to SDCC for all four days and see my friends!! I went to Seattle not once but twice! I love that city. I got the chance to volunteer at the Her Universe Fashion Show. Jaime and I celebrated 10 years which let me be frank, is an accomplishment. Being in a relationship takes a lot of work and to hit 10 years is something! Married or not, relationships are relationships and you need to put in 100%!

I'm not sure how 2017 is going to blow it out the water but I know I will make that happen.

I guess this is the part where I would write and share with you my New Years Resolutions but I didn't make a list this year. I'm sticking with my monthly small goals list which really helped in 2016 and I love that idea. I have a few things that I do want to do in 2017 though.

I want to keep writing. May it be here on my blog, over at Agents of Geek, or even in my journal. I have discovered that I do love writing and I want to continue with it. I want to get better. I slowed down my writing when I got the second job and for the last couple of months, I just didn't do much of it anywhere. I need to change that and I will. I shouldn't let working two jobs stop me. I will make the time to write.

Speaking of writing, I want to work on growing my blog. I have so many adventures that I want to share. I have some stuff I've been wanting to write up for reviews for. Outfits I want to share. I would just tell myself, "I'm tired from working... maybe tomorrow" and then it has become a month later. I need to stop being lazy and start doing. I want to be proud of my blog and I want to share things with the world. But I also want a record for myself too.

I've been thinking about what my one word for 2017 would be for a bit now. I think I may have found it.


At first I wanted to go with EXPERIENCE because I'm always wanting to try new things. I'm always wanting to do something at least once but I realize that a lot of that comes with fear and I have had had fear stop me from trying something, from doing something. I don't want that. I want to be brave. I want to slap fear in the face. I want to be FEARLESS.

I posted my first unboxing video last year and even though the camera and lighting was crap, it was an experience. I was so scared though.
I posted my thoughts about Rogue One only casting one female (lead) on the blog. It was my first opinion writing and I was so scared.

It worked out. I didn't get trashed but I didn't really promote it.

So yes, my word for 2017 is FEARLESS and lets see how far it gets me with all the things I want to experience this year.

It's a New Year and a new chapter is starting in my life. This may not be a giant list of resolutions but I like this list. I can continue attacking little things with my Small Goals but focusing on my writing, building my "Wonderland", and being FEARLESS is what I want to do!

Lets do this 2017! Don't let me down!
