Pen pals and postcards.

For the first time in the last seven years did I skip an end-of-the-year post. Perhaps it's one of the first changes that 2015 decided to bring along, but hey, for those who are still listening- the happiest new year, my wonderful humans.
My old readers wouldn't be surprised to hear about my perpetual incapability of recalling the year that went by, but like each year- it left behind a feeling. 2014 was a year where I really brought my game on as far as competing with myself is concerned, it burned me out emotionally and physically but I feel like it straightened me out in ways that wouldn't have been possible in any other way. I had never realized the kind of distress love could bring, so there, that's one more thing I've seen- the realization that love has a side that could be immensely futile was perhaps the scariest realization of mine in the last 20 years, but I think I'm alright knowing that now.

2015 is going to be a year of aggressive amounts of getting work done. Yes, it's the year to be ridiculously productive. It's the year where I'm going to push myself to start laughing my ass off on nonsense again, of going on multiple breakfasts to my favorite cafe and read or doodle for hours. I think I sort of lost that 'spunk' somewhere. I think I lost it in trying to find it in other people, or even some times believing that others will induce that magic in me at some point. Mistakes. A whole lot of Berlin-Artparasites and long nights of Bukowski did me well, for they reminded me of the importance of being ridiculous. So basically this winter has too many solo escapades around the city as soon as my Uni applications are done (if I survive them, that is).

From the 2015 Letter Project :)
I've started this new project of sort for 2015. I've been typing letters on my typewriter and sending them out to people, just because. I feel like the lost art of letter writing is a horrible loss, and if sending out a letter to someone nudges them to start writing them once again- it's definitely worth the shot. So I have a long list of recipients and I'm terribly excited about this! If everything works out alright, I may even extend this project to you fantastic readers. I thrive for wonderful things like pen pals and postcards, so this year is about reviving those old habits.

How have you all been? Tell me about your year and plans that drive you. I wish you all the most wonderful year, go badshit crazy and make this the most memorable 12 months that change you, that make you grow and make you thrive. It's a wonderful life, and that's a cliche for a reason.

To those of you who emailed me wondering if I'm still alive- you guys are the best. I'll get back to you all real soon. Go make wonderful things happen for yourself, keep the happy vibes alright? :)

All my love,
Nil.

(P.s- fiction coming up, realy sooooooon.)

  1. You have a typewriter. How sweet is that :) How about handwritten letters? Last year I started the habit of sending postcards again. And also discovered a new pen-pal (although e-mails) :)

    Happy New Year, Nil..

    Anyway, hope the new year brings you much joy and happiness. Have fun.

    Oh, btw I am waiting for the fiction..
    Keep writing.

  3. Happy New Year!
    I love the idea of hand-written letters, I've been delaying it far too long (2 years). And now I think it would be the best time for me to start it too, because every friend of mine will leave for university!
    University applications are a pain in the bum, I haven't started (i'll apply to merit based ones) but I've been checking essays of my fellow friends and giving out pointers. It sucks!
    Good-luck for the future and keep writing. I love your posts. :)

  4. You know that feeling when that perfect chocolate brownie arrives at your table? Just the right amount of warm, just the right amount of gooey. With crumbs that you don't dare brush off for fear of never being able to taste the brownie ever again.

    That's the feeling I get when I read your posts.

    Happy 2015 :)

  5. typed letters would never give us the magic of a hand writen letter. i remember having a phase where we had this unknown penpals whose address we get from daily news papers :P and we write letters to them and wait for them to reply. the happiness of getting a reply was so great. I even got a chance to meet one such penpal few years later! it was a special occassion :)

    Happy New Year Nil, cheers!
