Well, now 2012 is pretty much finished, it's time to look back at this year.
For me, it has been a year to have mixed feelings about. First, the bad things, and then the good things.
Well, in the first half of 2012, I got bullied horribly at school. I was verbally abused every day, beaten up twice, and one guy once sprayed blackboard cleaning stuff in my hair. And aside from a one day suspension, the bullies didn't face any consequences. Another consequence for me is that most teachers thought I was exaggerating, so now they see me as a nagging, complaining asshole. And because of all the stress, I lost a lot of weight. My weight is still healthy, but now my mom constantly complains and says I'm underweight, which is just not true... My weight is healthy.
Another bad thing about 2012 is that I still can't get along with my sister and father. My father constantly puts words in my mouth, and acts like I put words in his mouth while I really don't do that. And I'm overly sensitive and overthink things too often, so that often causes arguments. And my sister just loves teasing me and snapping at me, and frequently has my dad on her side. I don't think this will ever get better...
Now, on to the good things. Well, first of all, so far, in the current school year (2012/2013, which includes the second half of 2012), I haven't been bullied yet. That's something unique and unusual, and it's awesome!
Another good thing is that I finally got involved in the PokeShipping fandom. I support this shipping for many years, even back when I was a little kid who just got into Pokemon and didn't know about terms like "shipping". However, until 2012, I never went to the shipping section on Serebiiforums. This forum also gave me awesome friends, like , and . And needless to say, being on that forum often significantly improved my English too!
Also, my improvement as a drawing artist is awesome. I'm still not satisfied and I'm still an untalented artist who will never be talented. However, by working hard and drawing often, I significantly improved. For every aspiring artist, I advice you to draw a lot and show your drawings to friends, so they can give you constructive criticism on how to improve.
I also started fanfic writing again in 2012. Just as with drawing, I still lack talent and am still not satisfied, but I still significantly improved and really enjoy writing.
In conclusion, 2012 has been a mixed bag for me. The first half of 2012 was one of the most horrible half years of my life, but the second half year one of the best.
Happy New Year!
