I never quite got around to mentioning this in my last post, but you may of noticed I stopped referring to myself as Maroon or Maroon Caludin online. I was inspired by Kassy who recently decided to start using her own name.
My own reasons are similar. Using it is more personal. Plus…well…it feels like a way of growing up. To stop using my online name and use my real name. Many of the reasons Kassy gave, inspired me to do the same.
I wasn’t too sure at first, but decided to give it a go.
I have to say it feels so weird! I’ve used that name for so long. Like since high school, so its weird when I post here or on forums seeing just my actual name. But I think I like it. Feels more…me.
Anyway, that’s why you’ll see less of my online name!
So a brand new year. For me I like to think of it as a fresh start. As usual it sort of is for some things.
In my last entry I shared some goals for this year, so I won’t repeat them here. Instead lets talk about New Years! Not that I have much to say about it.
Our tradition is pretty simple. On New Years Eve we usually have some snack food. Usually taco dip (not huge on it honest), some bread dip, and chips and dip (which is what I had).
We also light any candles or any stuff (usually Christmas stuff mostly) that lights up. And right near midnight we light incense in our smokers (figures that you can burn incense in).
This year, I only stayed up till 11:00 pm. For one I have a hard time staying up these days. I’m always so tired! And I had to work the next day at 7:30 am, so I needed sleep.
New Years Day we don’t do much either. Usually just have a turkey dinner.
So, that’s what we do!
Happy New Years everyone!
So another year is nearly over, so I’m going to briefly look at the past year! Its honestly been a pretty rough year, mostly due to my constant worries and anxiety and all that yucky stuff, but hopefully that can improve, anyway, on to the post!
