It’s the last one. This one is basically the filler stuff, but I always do this in my anniversary posts. Thank you for putting up with my long celebration.
10. Hurdles and Setbacks Makes Life More Interesting
My life is currently a mess. I’m in a weird limbo, and it just sucks. The sad part is that I can’t really do anything about it. I mean, not until the end of next month. I’m really just waiting, and waiting makes you think and thinking makes you overthink and overthinking makes you anxious and feeling anxious builds up into steady depression. Yeah, I feel like I’m ending back at square one and I don’t really know what to do.
Whoa, holy sh*t, that’s a nice way to start this, eh?
But, life is kinda just like that. I always liken it to a wheel, and one moment you’re feeling like you’re on top of the wheel enjoying the view and the fresh air. It’s eventually rotate though, and soon you’ll be below the wheel crushed by its weight. I’ve been through worst, but being in a giant intersection in your life really sucks. I’m sorry for being vague, but I’m just releasing some pent up annoyance. A tip to anyone suffering depression, writing helps. Like, writing gets you to organize your thoughts and put them into words. It’ll help you step back and examine the big picture. Sometimes, things won’t go your way so you should always be prepared. Sulking and feeling defeated should be part of the process, because, I tell you, I’ve seen stronger people tie that noose around their neck quicker than you’d expect over things that you can’t believe someone so strong can’t overcome. Humans are weak, so finding your strength and finding your reason is really part of being human. There’s also the God stuff, but let’s not overcomplicate this one.
I’m not really in a good place in life right now, but its fine. Hurdles and Setbacks make life interesting, because you’ll look back on this moment and it’ll be your reason. It’ll be the thing that’ll make you human as it gives you strength and a reason to continue. I’m waiting for that moment that I can finally smile as I look back over this stagnant point in my life.
Ok, heavy stuff out of the way, I learned that it’ll take me more than a decade to finish my 1000 review goal. I know I can rush it, but I don’t really want to be like most reviewers that are just comfortable in their little bubble thinking their writing is great. My stuff isn’t great, so I continually strive to improve it. The rate I’m going, I think it’ll take me ten more years to finish this goal. I should just abandon it, huh? Holy sh*t, what am I even doing?
I have been lazy with my output though, since any blogger can tell that when you reach six years of your existence, the passion kinda dies. I mean, some people burn out in their second year, so it has been a constant struggle to really push forward. I have contemplated stopping, but I also don’t want to. I find reason in blogging. It makes me human, so I’m not stopping. I bet half of the active people in WP will be gone before I finish my goal. Just thinking about the logistics is stressing me out.
But enough depressing sh*t. It’s time for some stats! As you all know, I’m not afraid of sharing mine despite my pathetic stat game. Below is my stat page, and it is abysmal. I bet people gets more views than me on a daily basis. I plan to get a domain again, once I get out of my stagnant situation, and I’m sure my views will rise again. I’m obsessed with my stats, as you can see, so I need to whore out my blog more. Who wants to start a WP drama where we talk forty minutes criticizing other bloggers and how much they suck? Yeah, that’d be awesome.
As for my best posts, it’s f*cking DMMD and Yosuga no Sora. These are my top reviews and the other top posts are the Home page, Review page, and the Alphabetical. Side note, High School DxD is still my best post, because you’re all dirty disgusting people.
Ok, so what else do I usually do in my top ten anniversary post? I guess that’s it. I want to thank everyone for the support. Those awesome people at tumblr that reblogs my posts, I want to sincerely thank you for your long years of sticking with me. You are all reclusive and weird, but I sincerely appreciate all the support you’ve given. Some of you have been a steady follower ever since my second or third year and I want to make it up to you guys. That means crawling out of your bubble though, but let’s have fun with my seventh year.
To all my lurkers, I know some of you don’t comment or announce your support, but I also want to thank you guys. I get instant visitors from other sites, and I know these are regulars that really do support my blog. It means a lot, especially during the past years where your support really helped when my passion for reviewing kinda died a bit. To those that do comment, I want to thank you specially, since reading a comment from someone that enjoyed my review is so satisfying, and it really means a lot to me.
To the WP community, I also want to give you guys some virtual hugs. You’ve been awesome, supportive, caring and interesting to talk to. I love the healthy community we have here. Some of them are obvious circle jerks, but that’s fine. The community has never really gone toxic or elitist among other people, and it’s a welcoming place so thank you for making it an interesting place to be in.
Here’s to six more years (sigh) on WP!!!! Cheers!!!!!!!!!
