end of the year book

I saw an art project titled 'end of the year book' when I was researching schools, and I liked the sound of it. I have no idea what the project actually was, but I imagined it to be a zine or something about how people feel at the end of the year. things coming to an end or new beginnings coming up? how does it make you feel?

I'm feeling something like selective nostalgia. still wanting to clear out anything unnecessary and focus on what's needed. but also wanting to reconnect with long lost friends.
it's been another year that I haven't done much in. I've been feeling like I need to do something with my life. maybe this is what happens to many people in their 30s. or maybe it's more normal when you're in your 50s? it doesn't matter. I want to live more and waste less of this life.
that sounds really sad. but actually I did make some amazing friends this year. and I'm sure I did some important things I just can't think of now... haha.

today is the last day of the year. so I feel like I need to do something about it... like start using my new toothbrush. or clean out the fridge? but that's not quite right. maybe I need my own tradition that isn't just going to a party or something like that.

there's some extra motivation going on inside for sure. I made lists of books & movies I read & watched this year so I'm gonna do a review with my favorites.
this week I screenprinted cards that I'm really into (above pictures). I'm planning ahead - they were for valentine's day... even though they look like rainbow raindrops.
I plan to make some 年賀状 (nengajou) for the Chinese new year. not sure if I'll make ones with bunnies on them or something like that...

I feel incredibly distracted and I want to do so many things. setting goals is helping me to focus on the important things though.
happy new year everyone!
