Life Lately: 2017


My greatest achievement this 2017 is that I survived. I made it. It was a roller coaster year full of struggle and setbacks and problems I didn’t know I could have ever overcome but I did. I made it. I made it to 2018 and I couldn’t be more prouder of myself. Despite all I’ve been through, 2017 wasn’t all bad and I think all the good should be celebrated and all the bad should be left behind.

If you’ve met me in real life, you’d know how much trouble I have with socializing and making friends. I have mild social anxiety which prevents me from reaching out to new people and connecting with them. It took some time, most of the year tbh, but I finally learned to open up and make real connections with more people.

If you follow me on social media, you’d know how big of a part Winter (my cat) has played in my life since I got him early 2017. He has been the apple of everyone’s eye and has been such a little ball of joy for my family–especially my mom who adores him. It’s so nice coming home to him waiting for me, having him cuddled up next to me while I sleep and even having him wake me up in the wee hours of the morning just to cuddle.

This is my boyfriend, Fred. I’ve never really posted a photo of him on my blog but since he’s survived the year with me, why not? Hahaha. He has been more than just my boyfriend but a bestfriend and a life plot twist. I met him at the age of 11 but fell in love with him at the age of 22, after 11 years of friendship. He has played such a big part of me getting to where I am today and I am so thankful and happy.

Aside from these people (and cat) who made my 2017 bearable, I do have a few notable achievements and memories that I want to commemorate:

  1. Learned how to bake cookies.
  2. Got to see Steve Aoki perform live at a club
  3. Visited a museum displaying works of Picasso
  4. Went to the beach a few times this year
  5. Tried new restaurants from my restaurant bucketlist
  6. Traveled to Sri Lanka alone for a week
  7. I’ve kept this blog going (barely) for the whole year

I have a hopeful heart for 2018. Here’s to another year!
