2017 has probably been my most tumultuous year in quite a while for a lot of reasons. The world is a shitty place, and for me personally, I dealt with friendship drama, moving house, and finding and starting a new job all basically at the same time. But at the same time, I feel like I've been able to overcome so much and grow as a person. I found a new apartment on my own in my non-native language for the first time, got a new job through my own effort and merits, made a lot of new friends for whom I'm extremely grateful, and of course, got to spend JUMP's tenth anniversary year celebrating with them at a record number (for me) of shows during their arena and dome tours. I'm ready to make 2018 a much less stressful and more productive year, but I also want to look back on the good things that happened in 2017.
I know that I don't hear much from most of my friends on LJ anymore, and that many people have moved on or have other priorities, but I wanted to thank everyone who's been here with and for me over the past year, and wish everyone a happy new year!
