    2. Realizing no one has any say but me over my future

    3. Coming forward that I don't want children or a partner at all

    4. Realizing that 3 is perfectly fine, it may not be American normal but it's my normal and that is what matters to me.

    5. Scheduling my hysterectomy. It won't be until middle of next year since my insurance is making me see a therapist to ensure its really what I want, but it's scheduled.

    I can't really think of any "achievements" for the past year. I think it's different as you get older. I'm sort of where I want to be, so... Staying the course is sort of the goal, but it doesn't exactly feel like an "achievement".

    At any rate:
    1. My husband and I had 3 really awesome vacations.
    2. We threw a couple parties I'm quite proud of--one more to go, fingers crossed.
    3. I'm finally starting to feel like I know how to do the job I took a couple years ago--got a pretty substantial raise last Spring and I'm starting to hear chatter about the need to keep me with the firm so I'm half expecting another one any day now...

    1. Accepting and learning to live with my mental illnesses and being willing to do what I need to do to take care of them.
    2. Rebuilding bridges I had burned while I was really depressed and worried that I was going to destroy my live. I have rebuild professional relationships and rebuild some friendships as well.
    3. Beginning to look into getting my own place. I have living in rooms for rent house and I now am in a place where I am able to afford getting my own place. So that is awesome!

    There were a lot of ups and downs this year, the beginning of the year was terrible. Other than one thing, the end of the year has been a lot better.

    1. I started wearing skirts occasionally, and in public.
    2. I'm going to a Non-Binary/Genderqueer group event tomorrow night and have no serious doubts as to whether or not I should go. (I often go through periods of doubt before doing things, and often avoid social situations)

    I can't really think of anything as an achievement. 2019 is a year of failure for me. I guess if you consider learning from your mistakes an achievement, then I learned 1) I'm a very creepy person that people are afraid of 2) I can't trust anybody, and 3) I'm doomed to live a life of failure. I probably should have learned that a long time ago, but at least in 2019 I finally had it all spelled out for me. I'm hoping in 2020, if I can't get a boyfriend, I can maybe at least get some sort of new job or paid internship over the summer and help rebuild my resume.

    This was a big year of change and growth for me. I was forced to do things I've been putting off for too long, and changed my life for the better. Hit my rock bottom in March and was suicidal, and at this point I'm doing so much better. I have 5 things which I consider myself proud of for this year, and I wish I had done them sooner but I'm still happy

    1. Cut my hair short (never going back!)
    2. Came out to my family (was sort of forced out but it ended up all ok)
    3. Changed my major (again was sort of forced out, was failing my other major lol. but when one door closed another opened)
    4. Told someone I had feelings for her for the first time in my life
    5. Started taking medication for anxiety

    I also got my first tattoos, one of which was a bi pride tattoo, and lost my virginity! Exciting roller coaster of a year for sure, one I'll always remember.

    Persevering through a tough time that's still ongoing.
    Minor breakthroughs with my medications that are also still ongoing.

    That's all I can think of. Like Chizu said, 2019's been rough. Hell, 2018 and 2019 were rough. I just want this unending nightmare to stop.
