Jake, my year definitely wasn't as cool as yours.
I didn't buy a multi-million dollar dream house.
I didn't win any Teen Choice Awards either.
But this year was still the best year of my life, because I gained confidence in myself.
I started the year a sad and shy person.
I'm still shy, but I've come out of my shell.
In 2017, I became a Jake Pauler.
I made a number of new friends.
I started pursuing my dream and doing what made me happy.
I stopped caring about what other people thought and dabbed on the haters.
In 2017, I liked me for me.
Onwards to 2018!
