Year End Wrap-Up: Taking a Step Back to Pallet Town

Well, it’s the end of the year and time for another reflections post… but, honestly, 2017 was a shit show from start to finish and I’m glad to see the bitch die… I mean, fuck 2017… wait, that’s not right either, *ahem* let’s try this again…

With 2017 winding down, it’s time for me to look back on the year, and reflect on all the things I learned these past 12 months. (Nailed it) I’ve been running Nice Job Breaking It, Hero for a little over two years now and in that time I have seen many changes in my life, both personally and professionally. Of course not all of these changes were positive, I had quite a few setbacks this year, but I still managed to come out relatively unscathed.

Last year, I dubbed 2017 my Mt. Silver Year and at the time I wasn’t aware of what an uphill battle it was going to be. Much like the Mt. Silver from the games, this was my toughest challenge yet, but through pluck and sheer determination, I made it to the summit and honestly, there’s still so much more out there to explore and do! But, in order to reach the next summit, I first have to take a step back and start anew, that was one of the hardest lessons to learn this year. You can’t just keep adding paint to an already full canvas, in order to gain some prospective a fresh approach is needed. And so, I dub 2018 my Pallet Town Year….

These past few years I spent my time building my foundation, experimenting with various colors and hues, some worked, others, not so much. I’ve learned from those experiences and now I think I’m finally ready to create something new, not for likes or views, but for me. Not saying that that wasn’t what I was doing before, but somewhere along the way, I lost sight of what I wanted and now I mean to reclaim that “spark”. But, before I can start in on that new blank canvas, I have to take a step back and evaluate all the wonderful things that happened this year.

Year End Wrap-Up: Starting 2017 on Mt. Silver

On the summit of Mt. Silver

I can’t believe  it’s been over a year since I first started Nice Job Breaking It, Hero and it has been such an amazing journey, full of so much growth! In my first Year End Wrap-Up post, I dubbed 2016 my New Bark year, because this time last year, I was just starting my blogging journey here on WordPress. I was new to all of this, back then I was racking in a cool 10-20 views a day… and let me tell you, it was discouraging sometimes. There were days when my site didn’t get any views at all! Ya’ll I wanted to give up so many times, especially when Grad School was kicking my ass, but I didn’t! I fought every step of the way, I wrote, I networked, I put in the time and the results blew me away!

Year End Wrap-Up: Starting 2016 in New Bark Town

ruby next step

I smell adventure on the horizon…

So with 2016 less than a day away and the start of my final semester looming on the horizon, I thought it was the right time for a year end wrap-up….

First, I wanna say thank you! This is my first year blogging and I am super grateful to everyone for embracing me with open arms. I’m not so great with this sort of thing, my writing tends to be rather direct and to the point, but I want to say THANK YOU for reading my awkwardly random ramblings about otome and Pokemon, and whatever else popped into my noodle this year… I’ve said this before, but none of my friends care about otome/otoge, so it’s super special awesome to have found a community of otoge fans through my blog. You guys have really made me feel welcome! I have had a lot of fun learning, talking, blogging and reading this year.

thank you

THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!

So enough of that mushy stuff, lol…This is the final step of my masters program, so next year is going to be full of new beginnings! So for me 2016 will be my New Bark Town stage. For those of you who don’t follow Pokemon or just don’t remember Johto, here’s a refresher:

New Bark Town is the hometown of the protagonist in the second and fourth generation Pokemon games (that’s Gold, Silver, Crystal, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver). It’s where I started my Pokemon Journey so many years ago and it remains a place of anticipation and excitement for me even as an adult.

The Town Where Winds of a New Beginning Blow

I am ready for whatever is coming in 2016, to be honest I don’t anticipate the New Year to be perfect, that’s why I keep a my Potions and Revives handy. But, I am ready to give it my best shot, even if I sometimes make things worse, I’ll keep pushing ahead, ‘cus, that’s what heroes do…So here’s to breaking it in 2016, and every year to come…Sometimes you have to break it to make it…

So About Blogging…

I still have a lot of games and things in my backlog, so expect more Rants, Reviews, and, Ramblings in the future! (Maybe I’ll buy a PSP Vita when I get home, so I can finally play Code: Realize!?) Blogging has been so much fun and I can’t wait to keep it up in 2016!
