Day 30: Write about the good things that happened this month

We made it! This is the last day of the 30 day writing challenge and after today, we will start writing about things I choose. Today I am supposed to write about 30 things that happened, but I could hardly think of these, and I am writing this a week early due to time, so yeah.

If you have learned anything from my blog, I bet it is this: You take what you can get because beggars can't be choosers.

WeHeartIt

Some of you may know, I also have a weheartit account where I post blog posts, which they call Articles (which you know because this is WHI...). I have had this account for many years, but I had never really used it that much until I moved, so like August. In the years I had it I gained 700 followers. It took me at 3+ years of being inactive and active and inactive again to gain those 700, but in a month of having it now and being consistent, I gained followers quickly. I now have 3600 followers, and I am grateful for them all. I don't know if anything will come out of it, but being able to have a platform to share my actual dark feelings with pictures is amazing.

Finished a Story

I finished my first short story this past month. It was terrible, but it is finished. That is what I wanted to do and that is what I did.

Entered a Contest

I finished a second short story and drumroll I submitted it into a short story contest. Buuuttttt, I didn't win. But that is completely okay. I have written not one, but two stories. The first was bad but the second was better, and that is progress. That is what I am trying to do and that is the reason for the blog. I wanted to make progress and get better and that is what I did. Now I just get even better and win one. That would be cool.

Netflix Binging

This month I also watched 'The Office' for the first time. I started it about a year ago, but for some reason, I did not like it. I watched it again though because my best friend used to watch it all of the time, so I wanted to see what the hype was. IT WAS AMAZING!

I am the type of person who gets emotionally attached to a show and characters and a story line, so I will cry with them or for them or about them. I did exactly that. I cried like a baby when the show was ending. The last couple of seasons were not the best, but were still good, but boy were they sad. They pulled on ever bit of heart strings I have.

Also, I had a crisis when I finished it because, what do you follow that up with? So I started Rewatching Grey's Anatomy yet again, and I have been super emotional since I started it.

Blog Views

As we know, I started this blog about a month ago, and I have no clue what I am doing. But I would love to continue it and make it big and maybe make money from it.? But in the meantime I am taking things one post at a time, and this month I think I have done good with blog views, but then again what do I actually know? This month I had 300+ blog views. (400 when posting this to WHI) That is good right? Especially for just starting and not knowing what I am doing?

Bettering Body

Okay, so I sit around and write and watch Netflix all day, so I am not the most active person in the world. In fact, I may be one of the most inactive people in the world. Therefore, I have started doing light exercise. This means, I don't go to the gym and I don't stick to anything harshly. I just do what I want to, but make sure I do it at least 5 times a week and hopefully I get to daily. I started with squats and I was doing them daily and I go to the point I was so stupidly sore I had to switch it up and take a break. So then I started working my calves and same story there. Now I am doing working my calves while doing squats and pushups and yeah. Basically I am just taking small steps every week/ month to bettering myself one step at a time.
