Daily Prompt: 190 Days Later

The daily prompt today is called 190 Days Later and it asks;

Back on January 21st, we asked you to predict what day #211 would be like. Well, July 30th is that day — how have your predictions held up so far? If you didn’t reply to the prompt at the time, is this year turning out to be as you’d expected?

Well I wasn’t blogging back in January so I didn’t do the prompt back then, so I didn’t make any predictions. Shall we just leave it there? No? Fine.

Is this year turning out as I expected?

I don’t really know what I was expecting so I can’t really say that this year is or isn’t (or should that be is not?) turning out as I expected because I didn’t expect anything.

However if I was to expect something out of a year it would of been yet more disappointment, because that’s all life is, a series of disappointments.

And in that regard this year is turning out exactly as expected. England disappointed at the World Cup, my club disappointed a bit in the Premier League, nothing exciting or special has really happened in my life. See it’s all disappointing. That said if it was disappointing I’d probably be shocked and not know quite how to react.

OK now that you are all bummed out I’m happy :D.

Just kidding, let’s end with something positive.

This year I started this blog and my YouTube channel, when I started both I never really expected much from them. At least not soon. I started both just to help myself, to help improve my writing (which I’m hoping has improved), to improve my public speaking, and to boost my confidence. While I still have a long way to go, I think I am improving on all those things and getting better.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my blog, check out my YouTube, leaving likes, comments, and all other manner of feedback. It means a lot and helps give me an extra kick to keep pushing on.

This year hasn’t been that much of a disappointment really (well except for England, they are bloody useless).

  1. Hello there! I’m BasicallyBeyondBasic, the blogger who came up with today’s daily prompt. Thanks for writing up a response and I’d like to welcome you, as I see you’re fairly new if you weren’t blogging back in January. Sorry to hear about the disappointment but I hope the rest of your year only gets better from here! 🙂

    1. Hey, thanks. It made for an interesting prompt and bit of reflection. Was there any particular reason you picked today as the day to reflect on?
