2018 was a good year. Less dramatic and eventful than 2017, but more fundamental for my future. I became a designer, mostly thanks to Bureau Gorbunov Designer School. I earned my first proper money and got my first actual job. I started sharing my thoughts more openly and learned a new language. I learned how to code, interact with people, and read 481 books. I became Booksearcher’s secret advisor and finally spent a summer in Italy. Oh, and albeit I started playing guitar in 2016, this year was the first one when I started doing so seriously.
Most things that happened in 2018—like the Hawaii false missile threat—make me think “This was 2018?!”: that’s how long this year was.
I see what I want 2019 to be like, and I’m ready to make it happen. Happy New Year!
