I'm thankful that I started my blog here, made a four-week streak posting lessons that I myself learned from and for making a Stack Overflow account which answered more than 10 questions, one accepted and got 54 rep. To be honest, all of these happened this month or nearly passed the threshold.

Now, next year, I have to learn React so I can finally finish my site. It's just sitting there on Github Pages and Firebase doing nothing.
