Post-mortem of 2013
It is the last day of 2013 and so much has happened this year.
The winds of change have swept aside and also brought forth many radical experiences,
experiences largely different from the ones I have grown accustomed to.
Throughout the latter part of the year, I've met many new people.
Career-wise, this is the longest job that I've stayed in so far and sometimes, when it gets all too trying, I have to constantly push myself to see the long run, the far end.
Relationship-wise, I lost my best friend & boyfriend sometime during end May and so June was really the turning point of discovering myself as an individual. I am not proud to admit that I really spent my weekends.. I wouldnt call it the wrong way but let's just say it isn't what you would call healthy.
I always believe that the only way to let go of someone is to let another in.
No need for details but the past six months have been really really confusing as hell and I made a lot of mistakes. I think if it's one thing that I learnt, making a choice, the right decision is very important.
Forgetting to let myself heal, rushing headlong into things and going about my days without planning properly, without seeing the end goal, was my mistake. I dived into every moment, feeling alive, feeling surprised, feeling excited, not for once considering that certain calls are wrong, certain things should be told, certain emotions should be held back. I really did play with fire and for that, it really is all my fault and I am sorry.
Traveling-wise, the highlight of my year was Perth. I have always wanted to go to Australia and going there was truly an eye-opener and I enjoyed every minute of it.
This year, I made two trips to KL, one to Bangkok, two trips to Batam, Montigo (my haven), the last one to Bali.
Concerts- Seeing Swedish House Mafia, Hardwell, R3hab, Dash Berlin, Zoukout. Pretty epic times
Hopefully, I'll be lucky enough to head to Tomorrowland in 2014? ^^ I sure hope so
Highlights: Gaining independence/ Discovering myself/ Opening up
Lowlights: Losing my wallet in Bali/ Getting Food poisoning the day after/ Getting Stomach Flu right after coming back to Singapore/ Spraining my good knee(now i have two wonky ones)/ the naggy constant feeling of feeling let down/ Family drama/ the fear that things will only get worse and not better
Anyway that's about it! Here are pictures from the start to the end. (and because I got lazy sending pictures from my phone one by one to the computer..) i think instagram pretty much summed it up for me.
May 2014 bring forth nothing but boundless, limitless, perpetual joy, love, success and compassion to everyone.
My new year 2014 resolutions:
Be better, not bitter
Love all, trust few, Do wrong to none
Be firm and stand your ground. Learn to say no.
Stop drinking/partying every weekend. Time to grow up and learn how to be contented with laidback nights and languid days.
Find joy in the little things.
Always seek out the silver lining.
Open up your heart but only to the right ones.
Seek the good in others, don't always be so quick to judge.
Most importantly, don't let yourself down.
maybe we'll go too far,we just dont care
