HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!
I genuinely can't believe it's already 2020 and that I'll be 27 this year. This decade has been so great, alhamdulillah.
1. I got to go to KYUEM where I made just the most precious group of friends who I will forever treasure. Ever since I heard about it, it was the only place I ever wanted to go after high school. And I don't regret it one bit. It remains to be the best experience I've ever had ever.
2. I went to the UK to study! A dream of mine since a young, young girl. And I'm so blessed that I ended up in Bristol. It's a place I've built a home out of and I'm so indebted to it for being so kind and so wonderful to a wandering and enthusiastic 20 year old grow independent.
3. I worked my first job at Nelissa Hilman - where I learnt so much from a creative and inspiring lady boss and a team of the most fun and hardworking colleagues. And I also met my best friend Anis there so I'm so happy that I took a pretty unconventional path to a first job. It's helped shape my work ethics that I have now.
And the small in betweens that I'm just equally proud of but the three things above are my big highlights of the decade. I'm forever grateful for all that has come my way and for all the things that didn't. If anything, this decade has taught me that what is destined for you is also what's right for you. Take it in and accept it as it is. So here's me, taking it in and accepting as it is.
I spent my New Year's Eve with my high school sweethearts and we had a nice, lowkey Mexican dinner at Fresca. We attempted KLCC but it's like.............. hell so in this next decade and the ones to follow, I hope to never go to KL on NYE ever. We then walked to the Airbnb that Debra had booked and spent the night chilling, playing games, eating chips and watching the fireworks from our unit. I loved the night so much and I can only look forward to more and more of these together with them. They hold such a precious place in my heart so I'm so happy I got to welcome 2020 with them.
My New Year's resolution is to read more books, practice more Korean, do yoga, travel more and work smarter and to have more fun, damn it! I will also blog more in this new year. I'll be sure of it!
Thank you so much to everyone who has been part of my life this past decade; whether you were with me since the beginning of it or if you've only just known me 2 months ago. Thanks, really. Whether you liked it or not, you have helped define me as a young lady and in all that I do and for that, I am endlessly grateful.
Have a great one, guys! Love you.
