2♡14 | Moving Forward

While everyone is writing about their summary and recap of 2013, mine would be pretty brief in my own words and feelings with probably no photos. Yes, if you're lucky. It's sad (but true) how people nowadays doesn't appreciate wordy post anymore, they would prefer a post full of photos instead of words. That's not actually the point of my post so yeah, back to 2013. In fact, 2013 in general wasn't that bad, it has been quite a great year to me with fair bit of ups and downs. Come on, let's be realistic. Of course they are days where I wake up feeling all good for no reason and there are days that I wish I could just sleep the day away. I'm glad it's more of the former one. 2013 has taught me that you can't always get what you want. 2013 has taught me that when one door closes, another opens. 2013 has taught me to be stronger than I was before. 2013 has taught me how fragile one's life is. With that, I would like to thank 2013 for the lessons and all the people who have been with me through thick and thin this whole year round. I'm truly blessed x 

Few of the major highlights this year (that I could remember; I have short term memory pfft) would be me stepping into the final year of my uni life, meeting the Chelsea football team, my 22nd birthday, my trip to Taiwan and my recent hair makeover. Nothing extraordinary but it's still a year worth remembering. I started off this year with an empty jar where I will need to fill it up with all the good things that happen to me this year but eventually I got lazy and I never bother writing it anymore HAHA but hey, at least the jar isn't empty. Same goes to my Project 365 which never made it to the 365th day. Total failure T__T Despite the busy schedule, I still manage to blog from time to time and making sure that it's not totally abandoned. It has reached another new milestone with consistent traffic and surprisingly this little blog of mine has received quite a numbers of sponsored posts and invites to event this year. Thanks for the support, especially from my readers! It's definitely an achievement for me. Hopefully there is more to come in 2014 (: And not forgetting meeting new friends and different people through blogging. In 2014, I will try my best to blog more often, though I can foresee myself busy battling with the final semester of my degree in the earlier half of the year.

Speaking of 2014, I seriously have no major plans yet, just gonna embrace what He has planned for me. I have no clue how is it gonna be like too, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna be my year. Cause I can and I decided to make it better. Get hot. Dream big and try to achieve them no matter what cost it is. Love myself right, or else who will? Ahhhh, you know all the cliche stuff people say to themselves whenever the new year arrives HEH  

Not sure what's ahead of me but there will be brighter days as long as I'm willing to see them.
P/S: Photo taken on my last night in Taiwan, did a last minute shopping at freaking 12am.

While everyone is out partying or spending time with their loved ones on NYE, I'm stuck at home with my final year research proposal and a half dying laptop. Yes, I need a new laptop sobs I remember this time last year, I was rushing on an assignment too that dues four days later. Oh well, it's just another new year (: and please stop saying #YOLO and playing Harlem Shake or any of PSY's songs, that's so 2013. 

Till then, have a good year ahead, guys!

Much loves,
