Goodbye, 2013!

2013 has been a very weird year.  I know it's super cliche to say this, but it really did go by too fast.  Faster than I realized.  It's kind of scary.  Things changed.  I changed.  I can't remember a year in my life that even compared to this year.  I know that I've been mostly absent on here, but that was just an unexpected side effect, not an intentional occurrence.

I visited lots of new places, met lots of new people, and had so many new experiences, both good and bad.  There were more good things that happened this year, but the bad was still there.  It's kinda funny, now that I think about it, that I missed my annual post on Depression Awareness because I was too depressed to write it.  Ha!  But I'm grateful at least for the balance. 

I'll cut it short here so that I don't get too mushy or rambly, but I do want to thank you all.  Thank you for coming here and leaving me nice comments and words of encouragement, and thank you for not forgetting about me.  Thank you for all the fun conversations on Twitter and Instagram, and thank you for just being super cool people.

I hope 2014 is even better!

  1. Happy New Year! This year was a very tough one for many of us, whether battling anxiety and depression, or family losses and ill-fated jobs, which I've personally experienced all of these this year, as too many of us have. But at least there were some good times most of us can reflect on to bring us a smile or two. I hope this new year brings us all Growth and Great Spirits!
    *Many Hugs*

  2. Here's to a New Year. Hope that those who had bad experiences in 2013 have a better year in 2014.

    Scrangie, I am sure I speak for all your fangurls by saying that we all know that life has a way of sidetracking you when you least expect it. Hope you are doing much better! We all look forward to your great posts and swatches. Love, Love your blog. *heart*

  6. Happy new year, dearest! And thank you for writing such a inspirational and pic-heavy blog! It's been a rough year for sure, life isn't all rosy - but on the other hand I've been blessed with new friendships and experiences that my new hobby -POLISH-A-HOLISM- has brought along! So CHEERS for a new year of polish-fumed happiness! :3 <3

  10. Happy New Year Scrangie, I don't think you will ever be forgotten even if you stopped blogging right now, you are the Swatchapro and will always remain that. I'm lucky I guess that I only found you in recent months, Ive only been painting my nails for a year, and Ive read so many of your blog posts, each one incredible. I never buy a nail polish now until I check out your swatches. You are simply fabulous and I wish you lots of luck in 2014. Remember, nothing bad lasts forever xoxoxo

  16. This is this the very first blog I ever followed! When I was in a very bad place, and it always calms my mind. I believe our blog mistress (right term, I'm more into books and about to turn 39 -horrors-?)is a woman wise beyond the superficial.

  22. I hope this year is better for you. Anxiety and Depression kicked my butt in 2013 as well. You are not alone and definitely NOT forgotten! You're one of the first nail blogs I started following over 2 years ago.

    Happy New Year!! xoxo

  25. 2013 did to by really really fast and it was a depressing year. Not as bad as 2012 was for me but up there for one of the worst years ever. I just hope 2014 can be a better year. I need to get out of my funk and do something...I hope 2014 will be better for you too! Take care :)

  30. I also experienced an episode of major depression this year, for about 4 months. It was the first time I'd experienced the worse symptoms of my depression in about 4 years, and it was so awful. I realized I'd forgotten how to cope and my whole life suffered for it. I can totally understand how blogging gets away from you while you're dealing with life. Here's to hoping that 2014 will be better to us! <3
