2014 in review, with a little help from WP

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Now there, you can see how well this little bit of my world has been doing all year.

2014, oh what a year. I wish I could say it was all good, but I think it is enough to say, it was more good than not good. Does that make sense to you?

2014 is the year I discovered blogging could be taken to a more serious level. Sure, I have read blogs before but not quite as much as I have in 2014. I think I have followed more YouTube channels (be it vloggers or adaptations) and bloggers this year, taken to writing and photography for this blog, I have actually planned out what I’d like to write about and bothered to schedule things sometimes. Sure, life got in the way a few times but if you look at my ‘WordPress report’, it’s been shockingly consistent towards the end, something I’m rather proud of. Will there be more consistency in 2015? I hope so. I think I may lay out what my plans are for 2015, personal and for this blog tomorrow, so you read about that then. I hope to be better at this ‘blogging thing’, I strive to be. It’s silly that I feel like I owe it to the people reading but selfishly, I’d like to keep my ‘viewership’ because I like sharing my thoughts, and I like being read, if that makes it understandable. I am vain creature, I admit that but I do hope that this vanity is also a source of amusement and contemplation for you, dear reader.

All in all, 2014 was the year I moved away, stood up on my feet, discovered I am a complete monster when it comes to interpersonal relationships. I have fallen for the easy mistake of spending too much, I have learned to mend bridges that often have been torn down by my own self. I have gotten a hair cut that sometimes still freaks me out a bit. I have learned to drive more than ever before. I have inserted fingers into rectums, I have removed and placed tubes into people, I have handled blood specimens, I have been surrounded by disease and I have managed to acquire enough knowledge for me to move on to my fourth year in medical school.

2014 has been the year I watched 3 different musicals. I have flown on airplane numerous times. I went to the Philippines. I have learned to be more comfortable in front of a camera and talking to ‘strangers’. I have made baby steps in improving my self esteem.

2014 has been a good year. I have cried but I have also laughed. I have failed but I have also gotten good praise. I have been a bitch but I have also been a reasonably good friend. I have definitely taken more photos and blogged more than ever before. I have learned to prioritise my learning when I need to. I have been able to be there for the people I care about.

I am thankful that I am making it into a brand new year. I am thankful for everything and everyone who has been a part of my 2014. I hope I have not bitterly disappointed any of you or left things in a bad way between us, I do apologise if I have. May 2015 be a good year for all of us. I am truly grateful for all of you reading this. It means the world to me. xx
