I’m practically ancient now.

Singapore Lifestyle Blog, nadnut

It's that time of the year again. The year where I turn another year older, another year closer to the grave and a day where I start evaluating my life.

I stared at the computer for a good 30 minutes and yet I did not know what to write. Infact, this year, I was really not looking forward to my birthday.

For some reason, I get really emo during my birthday. I see birthdays as a day to "celebrate" another year closer to the grave. It feels as if the years pass by really way too fast. Soon, I'll have one foot in the grave.

As per my yearly tradition, it's time to summarise my life into one post to see where I've failed and where I've succeeded.

Studies: NADA. Completed last year. Doubt I'll be studying for my Masters anytime soon. Yet to finish paying off the study loans. By end of this year, I would be done. Thank God.

Work: As mentioned last year, I was working with a PR Agency, Grayling to be exact. Afterwhich, I was approached and had an offer by a Social Media company, pepperconn which I couldn't resist. It was a great experience and steep learning curve with pepperconn. I really did enjoy working with two great bosses, Adrian and Janet. Sad to say, I've resigned from pepperconn. It just wasn't a suuitable jobfit. 🙁 New updates would come soon I guess 🙂

Family: Same old, same old. There are good times, there are bad times but thankfully the good times outnumber the bad times. 🙂

Love: It's been close to two years with Ching Chong Boy. Still very much in the honeymoon stage but there has been some issues that we have yet to iron out. Whether we'll work out? Time will tell.

Health: I fell really sick last year and it was really the most miserable time of my life. I completed a few more 10km runs last year and I really hope to be able to get a proper timing soon. Will need to stop procrastinating!

Friends: There were some friends who were really a disappointment. Decided it isn't worth it getting aggravated by them anymore and decided to write them off. Those who mattered stayed and made effort. Am thankful and glad for those who did. For those who didn't, goodbye and good riddance.

Blogging: I've made many great friends from blogging and have never regretted the day I started a blog. It has brought me a great number of opportunities and I'm thankful for that.

Others: After much perserverance, yours truly has finally gotten her driving license. Yes, it's a manual driving license! Yee hah! I've also gotten my (Basic) Open Water Dive Cert. Advanced soon!

Thanks to everyone and anyone who has wished me a very happy birthday. As mentioned every year: birthdays just symbolises another year closer to the grave (to me). So love like you have never loved before, eat like you have never eaten before, live life like every day is your last.

Much love,
nadnut
