I SWEAR BRITT YOUR CAT NEEDS ITS OWN TV SHOW ^ ok but, my year started like crap. I was dealing with my on and off relationship, even though I was travelling. Cried and threw up in the randomest places in Japan. It didn't help that I was having such a hard time moving on. Soon after, my grandma passed away. It was a painful heartbreak, but it felt relieving, as she has been sick for years now. I wasn't there to see her last moments, but the people who were told me that she was happily eating tofu and taking selfies with them before pacefully sleeping. It took me half a year to get over my ex, and when I did, so many things improved. I got a new wonderful job, my grades shot up, went on a trip with my friends, got an internship, became more passionate in my coding. Yeah, there were hiccups in the moving on process, but oh boy, it felt like I defeated the dark shadow that pulled me back. Overall, while 2017 had sweeter moments, I grew more as a person in 2018, and I'm excited to see what 2019 will come to. ?
