Bye bye 2017

It's that time of the year again. The only time I usually don't miss a post haha. Sometimes I wonder why does it feel more significant to have resolutions at the start of the year. I wonder why only then people would choose to make a change in their lives. And then I realised that all those sneaky marketing tricks about New Year has got something to do with it lmao. All that hype. Jokes aside, in a way this 'New Year Resolution' might be a real motivation for some. It's something to look forward to after the hectic year that we're about to leave behind. So who am I to shit on what makes them happy aye? My 2018 is gonna be "You do you, and I do me". I'm gonna leave it here and bid 2017 goodbye. You have served me well. All those experiences will not be in vain. The good and the bad. May the next year be awesome as always.

Good things come to those who wait they said, so wait I shall.

Ever had a dream that felt so real that you woke up in daze and confusion? You could still feel the pain that you acquired from the dream, so raw that you let out a sob. A dream that still lingers even a few days later. The last time I felt that was a few years ago. I don't want to feel that again. Knowing me, I'm the kind that would bottle up her feelings and act like everything is alright. I don't want to deal with that alone again.

I see the moon and the moon sees me
The moon sees somebody that I don't see
God bless the moon and God bless me
God bless the somebody that I don't see
If I get to heaven before you do,
I'll make a hole and pull you through
I'll write your name on every star
And that way the world won't seem so far

She always felt lost and it was beautiful not
knowing how she would find herself. 
For everything she knew was a speck of something 
greater and it was just a matter of time until
all of her made sense.

Looking back, many things have changed. So many people I've met along the way, and lost some too. What was once a heart break I never thought I'd get over with is now a lesson learnt. People I've hurt, and people who made me laugh. I feel pretty nostalgic now after archiving my old Tweets. I can't help but feel some sadness creep in. I miss them. I miss the old times I had with them. More importantly, I miss my old self. If I could turn back the time, maybe I would have acted differently. Cherished and enjoyed the moments more without a worry of what will come tomorrow. 

Sometimes even unburned bridges have no way of making you walk back to where everything was because there's just no reason to return or maybe you just lost your way back.

Now, they're just memories. Forever the same...

Day 11: What is a mantra you live by?

Ever since I graduated from secondary school, this has been the mantra I live by everyday. I have this habit of being too hard on myself, always comparing myself to others. It's unfair to do that I know. Everyone's different, each of us have our own paths to take. If I continue to focus on what others have accomplished, I will never finish what I started. Maybe I could make use of that as an inspiration/motivation rather than being obsessed about how others have gone so far.

Day 10: What made you laugh today?

I read Reddit like it's a newspaper. Every morning I'll go through my feed and see what's up. Today was no different, and I found this particular post quite funny. I kinda wish I had that boots for the fun of it and to troll lmao. I definitely did nazi that joke coming 😂

Day 9: What emotions do you feel in January?

I'm not going to lie to you guys. 2017 scares me. When I entered the year 2017 from the past aka 2016(sorry that's lame 😂), I was terrified of what to come. New Years felt a lil different from the previous New Years I've celebrated. There's that silent realisation, not a bad one. There's nothing special about New Years except for the fact that it's no longer 2017 and I'm 10 months from turning 22 haha. Did I tell you guys that I no longer have a New Year Resolution thingy bajingy. Why must we only make a change when the clock strikes midnight and another year has passed by? Why not make a change anytime/day of the year aye? Hmmmmm

Day 8: Who are you missing? What is one thing you can do to reconnect with them today?

First of all, if you guys don't know, I'm actually from Philippines and my family migrated to Singapore when I was 9 years old. So all of my relatives are back home. We occasionally go back for vacation but that's like a once in a blue moon thing. If I'm not wrong, the last time we went back was about 2+ years ago? And that was only for 2 weeks. I was still schooling then, so were my sibling and my parents were quite busy with work. So yeah. Hopefully this February I'll be able to accompany my mom to visit my grandparents from my mom's side. Things are not going well for them, health-wise that is. I guess by now you would have guess who am I missing now, aight. So that's that. I hope I'll see my grandparents soon. Sigh. As of now, my grandma from my dad's side usually calls us in the mornings via video call on Facebook. My grandma is so techie. Maybe you guys should add her haha. Thank God with technology. It really comes in handy for situations like this.

Day 7: Write a short list of 10 traits that you hope to embody throughout the year. Pick one to focus on this month.

The following traits I would like to embody are not only for this year but throughout my lifetime. Take note that some of the traits stated below I still need improvement on hehe 😆 Anyways, without any further ado, here's the list:

  1. Adaptable*
  2. Balanced
  3. Calm*
  4. Charismatic
  5. Confidence*
  6. Decisive*
  7. Forgiving
  8. Open
  9. Consistent*
  10. Sociable*
Traits with * needs more improvement

I guess for this month it would be confidence? Really need this one at the moment.

Sorry for the late post peeps 🙊

Day 6: What do you hope to learn in 2017?

What do I hope to learn in 2017? I want to learn how to cycle. Yes, to cycle. I've been meaning to learn since I was maybe 9 or 10? But never got around to doing it because we didn't have our own bicycle. But since I've already bought one for my family, I can make that dream come trueeeeeeee. Hehehe.  But first I've got to fix its tires. I'm pretty sure that's not the only thing I want to learn in 2017. I'll just update along the way aye, along with my progress in cycling :)

The bicycle in the picture kinda resembles my own bicycle

Day 5 : How did you grow in 2016?

Part of growing up is making mistakes and learning from them. I've made a lot of that in 2016, so that means there was a lot of growing up for me, right? Yes and No. 

Yes, I've grown. I've learnt a lot about myself. How I'm like by myself and with people around. People have dynamic personalities. There's no such thing as a person having only one personality. No I'm not referring to Dissociative Identity Disorder. It's the kind of personality or character you portray to people. For example, when I'm around strangers or people I'm not really comfortable with, I tend to act differently. I would come off as quiet and serious but when I'm with my family, friends or boyfriend, I'd be all goofy and derpy. Like I'm a totally different person. 

Now, I've known for a long time how I act around different people.
What I didn't know before and not even long ago is how I adapt to being around new people or place. You see, when you're so comfortable in your environment and the people around you for quite some time, you tend to forget how it's like to be in a new place with new people. For years, I've been mostly in my comfort zone, only going out of it when I deem it to be worth the trouble. 2016 has forced me out of that place. It was a stepping stone for me. I've learnt how to adult or should I say I've learnt how it's like to be a kid in an adult world. I'm still learning and I'm not gonna lie, it ain't easy.  

No, there's still a part of me that's scared. Scared of everything.  Hindering me from I should have, could have been. Hopefully that'll change even if it takes forever.

Day 4 : What did you learn in 2016?

Just a heads up to my readers, this post might sound somewhat a tad bit depressing but I'll try to keep it short and sweet :)

So, what did you learn in 2016, Angel? Well, firstly I've learned that you can actually feel alone even though there are a lot of people around you, even with your loved ones. You've got to learn how to deal with your own emotions and to get it together, so that the people around you won't be affected. You've got to fake it till you make it. But sometimes that's not the case. The bottle will one day over flow and it's like a snowball effect. It started small but it ended up as an avalanche.

Moral of the story boys and girls, try not to keep it all inside. At least find a way to get that monster out of you.

Day 3 : My thoughts on 2016

If I were to be 101% honest with you, 2016 is the bitchiest bitch year so far. The year I felt like I was at my lowest. I felt so scared and lost even though my loved ones were around me. The year of self loathing. I thought I was going crazy with all the things that were happening. One after another. It's like getting punched in the face repeatedly, except there wasn't any physical damage. Oh how I wish I've gotten that kind of damage instead. Skin deep and heals faster.

Aaaaaaaaaand let's get on with the not so deep stuff hahaha. Where should I start hmmmm Makeup Trend, Dance Challenge, PPAP Song and etc.. Gawd damn so many. But one thing for sure, it was fun while it lasted even though some lost its novelty and got so annoying meh. Aren't most trends like that? All that hype and then boomz.

Day 2 : Write down one goal for 2017. Take it one step further and break that goal down into 4 smaller quarterly goals.

Get fit. Get Lit. Woo!

Just trying to get it rhymed haha. I think this was my goal a few months ago too? Not much progress to be honest nor did it get worst. This is more of a continuation of last year's. I guess I should give myself some props for getting onto Yoga at least once a week. Weeeeeeee! On a serious note though, after 2016, it made me realise that I shouldn't neglect my health. I may be all well now at this age but a few years down the road, my body won't be the same anymore. Y'know what they say, a healthy body = healthy mind.

Day 1 : Pick a word to guide your year. What does that word mean to you?

Guys did I ever tell you that the toilet is such a productive place? I mean, my ideas are always flowing out whenever I'm in the toilet. That's like my thinking place lmao. And that's how I came about with that one word to guide my 2017.


Kinda cliche I know but I think for this year and more years to come, I'll really need the positivity to give my motivation a push. What's a plan/goal if you don't have a driving force called Positivity, right? 

30 Days Blog Challenge

Good morning 2017! So I just remembered the 30 days photo challenges I used to participate in back in my younger days(secondary school duh haha) and I thought why not do the something similar for my blog. As you all know, or maybe not, I've been blogging since I was in Secondary One but my one major problem is that my content + blog activity tends to stagnate over the time. I want to change that, yet again. Hopefully this time round it work haha.  Before I get on with the list, I want to challenge my other blogger friend to do this mwahahaha. Kara ( if you're reading this, which you will. Teehee, I challenge you! Haha that sounds like some Pokemon battle challenge. Anywho, here's the list and the website from where I got it from 😊
