(I wrote this at the end of 2005, never posted it :))
what a year. a lot happened, but nothing much was achieved.
my friends have written some stuff that happened in this year, so i guess i’ll do the same too. erm, i’m just gonna go with stuff at the top of my mind.
this year i deviated far from what i’ve been, i’ve been infatuated, i’ve experienced a kind of longing which i’m not sure i want to subject myself to again, i’ve been let down, i’ve let some people down, i’ve been shocked speechless for the first time in my life, i realised that a lot of people are getting married while i’m just kind of uncertain of where to go,
i’ve done quite well for a semester where i feel the least confident about, i’ve been so busy i’ve hardly time to play on the organ anymore, i lost interest in studying for a period of time, there was a 2 weeks in july/august when i thought my life couldn’t be worse,
i’ve started clubbing once a week, i’ve drank till i threw up but i never lost control, the meaning of the ‘L’ word still eludes me, i’ve been on the weirdest date ever, i’ve learnt that it’s easy to take things for granted, i’ve learnt that there are many people who love me, nonetheless i’ve been building walls,
i’ve realised the best gifts are ones that come from the heart, i’ve become 21, i’ve been reaccquainted with a lot of old friends, i’ve ‘found’ friends from the past, i’ve cried a lot, i’ve laughed a lot, i’ve been really happy, i’ve been thankful for many things, i’ve learnt that i am not as unfeeling as i thought i was, i am learning to open up to people,
i’ve became very interested in fashion, i’ve became used to wearing watches, i’ve given up on jeans in general, i’ve added 5 jordi labanda notebooks to my collection, i’ve added 4 bottles of perfume to my collection, i’ve become a sex and the city convert,
i’ve learnt that i’ve to start thinking seriously about the future, i’ve decided that i’m too young to think about the future.
Going to end 2005 with this quote which I love –
“Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn’t fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away.“
Bye 2005 🙂
