2017 Accomplishments

Hello everyone! 

I hope you all are having a good day.

Today, I am going to talk about the accomplishments I made in 2017. Phew….let me tell you, a lot of things happened in 2017. It wasn’t the joyous of rides, but at least it was an adventure – well – experience  more like.

One of these experiences was severely twisting my ankle. I was in and out the hospital for several weeks, and was in a wheelchair for three months. Argh….that was horrible….I hated siting in a wheelchair while my cousins went out and play. When I was on my brink of recovering, I decided to do some Hydro Therapy, (because I hadn’t gone out for two months!), at the condominium, where I used to live. And then something else happened! Another case of injury.

*Sigh*That year wasn’t going as planned.

I accidentally pierced myself on a broken pile while swimming, and ended up going to the doctor again.  He said it was a puncture wound. OMG! It became blue-black and very swollen as if my foot was made of stone. It was heavy to lift it up – I couldn’t even feel my foot. It was so painful that I could barely walk. And the worse case scenario was that; it was my twisted and injured foot. *sobs*

*eyes rolled* So much for coming to the swimming pool to exercise… 

However, during my journey of agony, I was surprised that I achieved some of the goals on my checklist. 

  1. My poem. ‘My Baby Butterfly,’ was published in iRiS Magazine #1
  2.  Another poem, ‘IntEruptions of Thoughts,’  was published in The Poet’s Haven Digest #4  (under the name of Alexandria Johnson)

Even though I had accomplished two of my goals, I am proud that I did something amazing for 2017. I am very glad that I get to share my poetry with everyone!

YAHOOOOOOOOO! I am grateful for these successes!!! 😀 


 Till next time.

2018 Writing & Reading Resolutions

Hello Dreamers!

Okay. That is weird considering I am talking to myself. Although you may think I am not, but I am, I am talking to myself when it is my own blog post. Ahem….it has been a long time since my last blog post. Sorry about that, I have been busy lately with my life and work – although my work is basically me, finishing my first novel. I consider it as work, lots and lots of work, and I’m telling you; it is a working progress. I haven’t yet finished my first draft, but I’m going to, and I shall finish this draft by the end of 2018. Now that is a prominent achievement; I have to put my words into action.

After all, action speaks louder than words.

Here are my Writing Goals in 2018:-

  1. Finish the first draft of my fantasy novel
  2. Draft out a short story
    Sunshine Smile


  3. Finish drafting out the short story
  4. Come up with more ideas for my next novel (although it isn’t the time thinking about this, but what the heck, I want to get my other book done too! Super excited about this one).

And then these are my Reading Resolutions for this year:-

  1. Read a chapter a day
  2. Read Mary Higgins Clark’s The Lost Years

the lost years

3. Read Stephen King’s Mr Mercedes


4. Read a Non-Fiction

5. Finish 20 books this year!

Hopefully, I will get to complete my goals successfully. Wish me luck!

*Fingers crossed*

Till next time.
