Looking Back at 2013

wreck2

Today marks the very last day of the eventful year 2013. No, we haven’t solved poverty or achieved world peace, and no, we’re not riding hover boards and ordering robots around (yet!) But what a wonderful year it was. The Philippine economy took a huge leap through the skies (look at me being all mature!), I finally graduated college, I am now earning money. Huzzah! AND  I’ve never been more thankful for all the amazing opportunities, experiences and people in my life. I’ve learned to be more positive and grateful this year, and I hope to continue and spread that feeling in the coming one.

To everyone who’s given a portion of their time to read this blog and made me a small part of their lives, I sincerely thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I never thought in a million years that I would get to fly around the world, meet a gazillion talented people and share my life with a whole lot of awesome readers. I am beyond overwhelmed and beyond grateful.


I MISS YOU GUYS

Hope you guys will have a rocking 2014. 365 more days to come! :)

Always,

Welcoming the New Year

First up! Let me greet everyone a very happy and prosperous New Year! I cannot imagine how long have I waited for this moment to tell every single one of you that I am still alive and kicking. I know that 20+ days have passed since January 1st, but better late than never right? Anyways, aside from my lacking sense of keeping up with the time, I have a very valid reason for posting this late. My Thesis. As all of you may have known and I have posted this on my previous post that I am going to be away from quite some time because I will be focusing on the most important facet of my life right now which is my education. I cannot give emphasis enough on how important education is for me, as it is one of life’s greatest treasures in life. Material things may fade away, but knowledge is gold and eternal! I am in a good mood today to tell everyone, that although I am not yet done with my thesis defense, I am in fact 100% endorsed! So that is YAY for me! :)

Second agenda for today, is also a decision to be made by me. I am thinking that after thesis defense I can update this blog more often than I expected. And I am (if God willing) will turn this into a lifestyle-blog. Although I still have to figure out what kind of lifestyle I am expecting of myself as well. Anyways, I made this quick-but-wise decision to somehow train myself into honing my skills in writing as well as to try new things for this year! And who knows what God has prepared this time around right? I have 10 months for this year to explore a whole lot of things, and the world ain’t big enough for this girl to see! Haha! I do promise, I will take over the world (in a non-Hitler-kind-of-way) one small step at a time. Who knows maybe I will be the next Anna Wintour?

So far what I’ve been doing for the last couple of days this year was to re-decorate my room. I find this space of my room very chic. This little corner is what I call, my most favorite spot. It reminds me of London, Books, Flowers and Chanel! I’ve been really inspired by lifestyle blogger Jenni Epperson lately with her apartment that I’ve come to do the same makeover to my room.

Thank you so much guys for all the love even if I haven’t posted anything since Thesis happened. I promise, I’ll be back on 2nd week of February.

Much love,
