January 1st, 2017.
We’re right at the start of a new year, which is generally a time where we take a look back at what has happened the year before and where we try to figure out what the next twelve months will bring us. I’m not going to delve into clichés like “New Year, New Me” or “I’m going to do better this year”.
I think we can all agree that 2016 wasn’t the best year. A lot has happened, both great as well as devastating things. Every year has its ups and downs, 2016 just had a lot of them. For me personally, it wasn’t the best year either, though I also can’t say that it was an awful year. I experienced some great things too this year. Things I can be proud of, things I can’t look back on without getting a smile on my face and just a lot of small things that make life so much better. So I’d like to put my focus on the joyful events of this year and here are a few of the biggest ones. I’ll probably forget to mention a lot of things, but I’ll give it a try.

It’s the first of July today, which means that we’re halfway through 2016. This year has gone by so fast already. A lot has happened since the start of this year. I went to London, I became 19, I finished my first year at college and so much more.
The reason I’m mentioning this is because the first day of July also means that my blog is nog six months old. I started this blog on January 1st. I thought I’d celebrate this with a short recap and a small Q&A.

For this post I wanted to take a step back and look at some things from a different perspective. I recently recapped my four months of blogging and I’ve been making some conclusions about my experience thus far. Okay, that seems way more negative than I intended it to be. What I’m trying to say, and what I’ve said a couple of times before, is that I’m constantly searching for ways to improve my blog and how to keep things interesting. By reflecting on what has gone before, I can get a pretty good idea as to what is working and what else I can do.

How is it even possible that I’m already blogging for over four months? That doesn’t seem right to me. The day I published my first post seems like yesterday, though it’s been 122 days since then. 122 days? Well, for you that’s probably not that long, but for me it seems like an eternity. Anyway, these four months have been crazy and I’d like to take a moment and look back at everything that has happened during that time. This also seems like the perfect opportunity to have a little party right here.

Yes I know, my blog has only been around for just over a month and I’m already changing everything about it. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, which means that I’ll never stop trying to improve things. When something isn’t right, I’ll figure out how to make it better or completely start over. That’s the exact same thing that happened with my design.
I liked my old design, it was consistent and not all over the place. I put a lot of effort in keeping it coherent and maintaining the overall look. Though after a month, I started to doubt whether or not it was the right design. I just wasn’t entirely satisfied. That’s when I began looking for alternatives and well one thing led to another so I ended up changing everything about it.

It’s the first day of February which means that it has already been a month since the start of my blog and I seriously can’t believe that. It feels like I started blogging only yesterday and yet it also seems like I’ve been doing this for years. Does that even make any sense?
Anyway, I wanted to take this opportunity to look back at everything that has already happened.
I’m quite proud that I have already published 9 posts. To a lot of you that may not seem much, but for me it’s quite something. When I started my blog I always thought I wouldn’t have that much to write about or to keep things interesting. I’m not sure whether or not my posts have been interesting, but I still have a couple of ideas for the future so you won’t see me quit any time soon. I’m currently posting twice a week, every monday and friday. Though I’m not completely sure if I’ll be able to keep that up, but I’ll try.

Since this is my very first post you probably won’t know who I am, unless you’ve already read the about page. Anyway, my parents gave me the name Jonas and I am currently 18 years old. Last summer, I graduated from high school and I now go to college. Besides going to school I don’t have anything else to do. I like to occupy my spare time with reading, watching movies and wasting time on the internet. I don’t really do anything sports-related, because well sports. Finally, I would like to mention that I enjoy being around my family and friends and that I love taking photographs.
Now that you now me a little bit better, I think I’ll dedicate a few words to the meaning of this blog. As I’ve mentioned before, I like to read and watch movies (or TV series). That’s what my blog is all about. I would like to hopefully not bore you with my views and opinions on this matter. What you’ll also see appearing on this blog are hauls, reviews, random stories and other things (hence the name of my blog).
That’s all I have to say at this moment.
I hope you’ll enjoy my blog and I’ll see you later!
