Obligatory New Year’s Post

Happy New Year, everyone!

How was your first day of 2021? I didn’t bother staying awake until midnight or past that since I had to work early this morning. It’s not necessarily my thing. Wow, this makes me sound old.

2021 is still up in the air with the calendar and all. I don’t have any clear resolutions yet. I would like to do some creative things related to Ospreyshire (the spoken word project) as well as my other creative endeavors. Videography was very fun last year, so that could be something I could try. Weirdly enough, most of my specific goals involve watching and reviewing films on my other blog. I’ve been watching some interesting things including from countries where I didn’t know had their own cinema scenes. Posting poetry is something I want to do more often on this blog.

While I do have some hopes, I have to be honest with you that I have lingering depression and there was a time earlier today where I felt like I was hopeless while thinking this year is going to be miserable, but I’m not sure. Positivity can be foreign at times for me and this has been a thing even before 2020 happened.

I hope you have a blessed new year nonetheless.

It’s list season and while this blog never had any fancy content, I thought it would be fine to do some kind of retrospective from the year that was 2019. These were the most viewed posts on Ospreyshire’s Realm last year. This was a mix of poetry, news, rants, awards, and music.

Thoughts on the New Year

Here’s a quick blog post.

I want to thank anyone who’s checked out the Ospreyshire blog over the past year. Granted, this is still a small blog, but it’s great that anyone would want to bother checking out my content.

This was a big year for me in different ways. I had many ups and downs in my creative and personal life. One ongoing goal is producing weekly content with my Katauta 52 Project which has been stressful trying to fit this in between work, but I’ve been doing my best to get a video every Wednesday.

I also had a huge spike in stats because I now have over 1000 views on this blog. That’s incredible and I certainly don’t deserve it. I also got into making other blogs like C. M. B. Bell Fiction for my stories and Iridium Eye where I’ve been posting film reviews of lesser-known works.

I hope to make some more katauta videos, but I also want to make some more tracks. Who knows what will happen?
