A Geeky Gal’s 2019 Yearly Recap

A Geeky Gal’s 2019 Yearly Recap

Welcome to my first ever yearly recap! I noticed many of you really enjoy the monthly recaps so I thought why not do a yearly one, too? As always, there are some highlighted posts that I loved writing in 2019 as well as popular posts from my Instagram and Twitter. I included at least two top posts for each month of 2019 as I did take a mental health break during the year. Some months saw more views than others so I included the most viewed and popular posts for those months. I’m even sharing a few of my favorite and most viewed YouTube channel videos from this year!

I know I keep saying it but 2019 really was a fantastic year for A Geeky Gal, and I very much looking forward to 2020 with all of you!

On YouTube: Health Goals for 2020 & Rule of Rose Playthrough

On YouTube, there are a whopping two videos this week! One Tuesday, I played Rule of Rose in Part 7 with the longest boss fight ever… Come watch me fail hilariously! Future scheduling for Let’s Play may also change to every other Friday with regular content on the other Fridays!

Today on YouTube is my first video since my rebrand (which you can watch here). I go over my personal goals for 2020 as well as my fitness and health goals for this year! I’m excited to see how far I can go and look back to appreciate how far I have come. I’m making 2020 the year of growth for myself.

Spoilers! What’s On My Bucket List?

Spoilers! What’s On My Bucket List?

This post first appeared on a very old blog of mine several years ago. In the spirit of the New Year, I decided to update it, and post it here for everyone to see. Maybe it will even give you some ideas for your own bucket list!

“Carpe Diem – to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future.” Or “seize the day.” Or “life is too short.” Or “when in Rome”. Or “you only live once.” Or “now or never.” So many names for just one word: live.

This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness. Mainly, my own happiness. I’ve always have had a hard time focusing on myself. I always feel bad, like my attention should be elsewhere, like on work or school or family or friends. While those things are important, I am still important too.

I’ve shared a lot with my readers, and I’m not going to stop now. I’ve made myself a bucket list of 100 things I want to do before I “kick the bucket.” There’s no time like now, right? I’m working on a few of these presently, but I’m honestly excited to start marking these things off. I know these things will make me happy, and I hope after reading my bucket list, you’ll make your own.

5 Lessons from Therapy

5 Lessons from Therapy

In 2018, I started seeing a therapist. I initially wanted to see someone for my anxiety that had only gotten worse since Alec arrived in October of 2017. I didn’t know what to expect during my first visit, but my therapist ended up being exactly who I needed. On top of anxiety, I was diagnosed with PTSD. This year, we realized I also have depression.

I’ve been working hard during my mental health journey, learning how to cope and working through my trauma. There have been several “lessons” that have been helping me along the way; some people may call these alternative thoughts or affirmations. They have greatly helped me almost daily. In an effort to keep breaking the stigma around mental health, I wanted to share these alternative thoughts with you on the blog today.
