Happy New Year ! another year just passes by in the blink of an eye . during my New Year's Eve , i was hanging around Desa ParkCity for the countdown with my boyfriend and a few of our friends . when the countdown and fireworks were over , my bf turned to me and said "it doesn't feel like a new year yet" and our friend responded by saying "of course lah , it never does feel like a new year ; it's just another day" . and indeed , it's true . i don't think i'll be faced with the truth , at least , not until it's like April or something . HAHA
the one thing i noticed about 2016 , is the amount of people posting on Instagram / FB / Twitter about how their 2015 went or their new year resolutions . in fact , i might've been one of them ... if i had any pictures to post . fml . hence , i decided i might as well do a blog post to recap on all that i've been through on this one hell of a year . P.S. typing this makes me feel like i'm doing one of those YouTube Rewind things lolol .
(WARNING : LONG POST AHEAD)
one year ago , i celebrated my 2015 New Year's Eve at the exact same place i did this year , with the same boy but different friends .. i'm a creature of habit , i must say HAHA .
had some fun with half of the FAB girls before we went our separate ways ..
and of course , started my A-Levels program at KTJ ! i could still remember my first day , not knowing where to go and what to do because i was still nervous ahaha .
February was a pretty good month , with Valentine's and Chinese New Year - which also meant lots of pigging out on good food !
March signified the start of our first mid-term break , and i took the opportunity to attend my first MUN conference ever ! all i can say is , it's not really my thing HAHA .
also spent the rest of my holidays with my loved ones from KL and Penang , it was good to be back in my hometown :)
April was a stressful but exciting month , stressful because we all were about to have our A-level Maths exams but exciting because it was a month full of events to attend ! there's nothing i love more than dressing up and going to parties to meet all my friends heh 💓
May was my month ! my birthday month , that is . truly enjoyed my birthday this year as i received not one , but three surprises ! i've never gotten a surprise birthday party before so this came as a really joyful event for me 😿
it was also exam season ... so this was basically me after all our papers zz .
June and July were summer holiday season , so i spent it by interning at an international firm in KL (i won't say which) for 3 weeks . the internship was certainly an unforgettable experience .. spent the rest of the summer with Kun Yew / friends . also , finally FINALLY did a shoot with qt pie Joanna !
AUGUST - SEPTEMBER :
August meant going back to school , rushing to the dining hall just to be first in line , HOUSE SINGING (!!) , prep times and studying . glad to have gotten a single room this term as it was AS season and i certainly dreaded it :/
also , finally gave my overgrown hair the big chop !! just an extra bit of information : i cut it off in an indian barber shop for RM7 . HAHAHAH
AS season and study leave meant i could head home a lot , but that didn't mean i wasn't stressed out for exams .. still , had a lot of fun this month and my cousin got married !! it was also my first anniversary with the bf :)
NOVEMBER - DECEMBER :
these two recent months were months of friendship , months of giving and receiving , and months of new beginnings . i actually have more photos from November and December but haven't gotten the time to transfer them yet . very very grateful to reconnect with my Penang darlings in these months and also spend lots of time with my family :)
all in all , 2015 has definitely seen lots of ups and downs in my life . Religion-wise , i've been backsliding a lot this year , and admittedly i still haven't found my way back home . Academically , it's been a long struggle and at times i just really feel like giving up A-levels and pursuing an easier course . it has also been hard having to deal with family issues when it clashes with future plans i had in mind . Relationship-wise , my platonic relationships were proven to me , as i managed to single out those who really cared for me and those who didn't . it was amazing getting into a new environment and meeting people of all diversity . i truly enjoyed my time at KTJ and will continue to enjoy it despite their sometimes-overboard-rules .. In my romantic relationship , i must say that i've learnt a lot in this year . Just because a relationship looks perfect online doesn't mean it stays that way behind-the-scenes . Kun Yew and i have had our fair share of drama this year but i'm glad it made us stronger as individuals as well as a couple . Body image issues have always been something i struggled with but this year it took a toll on me as i gained a significant amount of weight . Having different sorts of news broken to me this year have given me mixed feelings , some overjoyed , some worried , and some sad .
i guess i never really wanted 2015 to end , as i thoroughly enjoyed so many moments in it . through the emotional and mental pain and struggle , through the fun moments and exciting events , i think i managed to mature holistically . thank you to those who stayed and those who left , i'm always grateful for new experiences and past lessons .
as for 2016 ? my only goal is to work hard on pleasing myself and not care about anyone else , as this is something i've always never been able to do .. i hope all of you have an amazing New Year , set those resolutions right and work for it . Thank you so much for reading and being with me for one year xxx
