    I'm so sorry to hear that. My uncle had a serious health crisis involving his heart. We were so scared that we would lose him. I hope this year will be a better one for you and your family.

    Forgot to add: I finally am confident to say that I figured out my gender identity and sexuality after many years of confusion.

    Here is my good, bad and ugly of 2017:

    GOOD:
    • Summer Holiday - Spent 2 weeks on the world's largest cruise ship (Harmony of the Seas) - amazing experience.
    • Getting good exam results - 8 A's and a B. The hard work paid off, and that feeling was amazing.
    • School retreat in mid-December. Great opportunity to learn more about other people, their lives, struggles and relationship with Religion (cannot go into more detail)
    • Becoming more opinionated/outspoken/intelligent - basically getting more mature. I have found a voice and opinion over everything. Love it and broadens conversational topics.
    • Discovering more about myself - It is always great to discover your passion and who you truly are.
    BAD:
    • Lost my grandmother in late-November - Always sad to lose a close relative.
    • Difficulties with friendships - Have been in a forced friendship with a person who I don't like for 4.5 years. It's only recent that I started to see how bad my social situation truly is, and it caused a bit of feeling down.
    • Self-esteem. I'm not in great shape and feel no confidence or self-esteem. It isn't easy, to say the least. I have decided to act on this for 2018.
    UGLY:
    • Struggle with coming to terms with being gay - very difficult journey for me, caused depression, isolation and some other problems. Still not out to many people. That's why I came here.
    So, definitely my most eventful year to date. Plenty of highs, lows, but a great one in general.

    It wasn't too awful. I made a ton of progress and really worked on some goals I had, and got to experience new things so all-in-all it was decent. It started out really rough for me though.

    I hope 2018 I finally realize what I want to do, which was something I struggled a lot with last year.

    It was pretty okay through the first half of the year. I finally declared a major at college, got elected to an exec board position for the fraternity I'm in, and my girlfriend and I finally had enough money to get out of town for a couple days and explore another place. However, in the middle of June my last living grand parent passed away which just really sucked as I was really close to her. The rest of the summer into the school year was spent working on cleaning her house out. Another high of the year was that I started therapy to start trying to get my anxiety in check and it's been slow, but I finally feel like I'm making progress. I'm hoping this year goes more smoothly.

    2017 has been a crazy year. A lot has happened. Amazing things, but also shitty things. Great feelings and bad feelings. I've learnt from the bad things though and I'm super grateful for the good things that happened. Looking back I wouldn't change a thing about 2017.

    I spend the entire year denying that there was something not quite right (me being trans) by sleeping around

    Negative:
    - Couldn't take the finals cuz i was sick too long,
    so got told to dropp out(spelled?) and seek another study institution.
    I really liked going there.
    - The person who got mad cuz I didn't want to come out to someone from the
    family at the end of 2016 still pretend like nothing happened. (>.<)#
    - A long time friend moved away early 2017.
    - Broke accidentally one of my model stuff.

    Positive:
    - A new human got born and that child is probably the only one
    i don feel awkward being around with.
    - I have gained more self-esteem living alone &
    no one commenting on how I set up stuff.
    - I know what people to avoid that drags me down when I'm around them too long.
    - Unexpectedly got a limited edition from someone :grin:.

    2017 was not good. At all. Being back in the closet isn't helping either... but yeah, it was a year of ups and downs... more downs though.
    Work went well at least.

    It wasn’t a great year but it wasn’t horrible either. It could’ve been better in many ways. I took some lessons from that year though.

    It was very frustrating because I wanted to make some friends and improve my social life.

    Difficult but rewarding. I figured out my gender identity and came out to most of my friends and family.

    An awful year.
    My parents found out that I were gay before I had decided to come out, and dad yelled at me pretty much. I was so broken after that, I tried to cut and I showed to a friend. They misunderstood it pretty much and we had a fight for 1 and half months. I were feeling very guilty because of that, and it didn't help with my parents saying random comments about who I am. Everything haunted in my mind and I started to do self harm. Later on did I start to feel suicidal, but I weren't sure if I could do it.
    Suddenly does the friend come back after that I had told about the so called coming out. I thought I were better, but I were wrong.
    I started to feel more suicidal and I were about to two times in a short time. Were sent to psych ward, talked through shit and felt a little bit better.
    Have been feeling better since then, though it have going up and down. Realised later that I was trans and started to feel a bit bad about myself.

    This was a messy year.
    I have learned a lot this year, even though it was horrible. Well.

    Started out amazing, a bit rocky in the middle and meh at the end. Not that interesting, but better than my miserable 2016.

    A bit rough to be honest, my online dominant broke up with me(not a bad breakup, we are still friends despite him living in America), I did do well with university but my resolution this year is to get more experience with real life kink and possibly start a proper relationship next year and pass all of my uni subjects so I can finally try and work with production design and write scripts for films.
