Happy 100! (Come So Far; Got So Far To Go)

This is my 100th blog post!

I thought about this day coming when I was still at a mere 75 posts and wondered how I would commemorate this occasion. You see, this is the longest period of time I have ever written continuously in any sort of journal or blog. I knew that if I made it to 100 posts, it would be a (sort of) big deal.

And now here we are! Almost two years after I started, I have posted 99 blogs about books, movies, lists of things I want to accomplish, and stories about every day life.

I was reading through some of my old posts, changing the tags and doing some editing of spelling mistakes and grammatical disagreements, and there's definitely a progression in my writing. I've moved from "blogging" to writing "expository essays." There are some entries I'm really proud of (namely my review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, thoughts on friendship, the importance of what comes out of your mouth, and an explanation of why I'm a Christian who believes in gay rights). There are some that I think aren't great, and others that make me sad when I read them back because they remind me of times when I was struggling.

I am glad I have kept a record of the past two years. It's been a time of transition and discovery. It hasn't been easy or comfortable, but it has been a period of growth. I have learned a lot, and I regret some things. But think I've come out no worse for wear - maybe better because of it.

100 posts in and I have no intention of stopping. Thank you all for reading and engaging with this blog. It's been a source of encouragement, and I feel more motivated than ever to produce quality writing - for you, and for myself.

So have a piece of cake in honour of this occasion, and see you at post 101.

Let's party! YOLO!! (image taken from here)
