I’ll be turning 28 in a few minutes time and I ain’t looking forward to this. (The only “cool thing” is that I’m turning 28 on 2/8. HAHAHA, February 8th, geddit? lol)
Yes, age is just a number but it just scares me to see how fast time passes by. Have things changed? Have I wasted yet another year of my life? I always dread writing the yearly birthday posts.
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: I’m done paying for my study loan. HELL YEAH! Can’t believe that I’m actually considering going for a Masters degree.
Work: It would be almost a year since I’ve been with Asiasoft. Am currently in Product Marketing. Job has it’s own set of challenges, enjoyable so far but I am not going to get myself comfortable. Never believe in being too comfortable in a job as I feel one tends to be more complacent. Well, that’s just my own way of thinking.
Family: Same old, same old. Things have been much better for the past year. Hope things will be better. Am afraid to see my parents age.. and well, lose them someday. Baby Boy left us recently and to be honest, I haven’t really come to terms about it. I am still in denial and honestly, I do pretend as if it never happened. It’s been hard, way too hard. But I guess, that’s the easier way out for now.
Love: Biggest change ever. I am engaged! o.O We started having talks with our parents on weddings etc and it is scaring the shit out of me. We agreed to settle on a ROM in 2014. Any earlier I’ll probably go crazy. I am ready to spend the rest of my life with Ching Chong Boy but not now now now. LOL.
Health: I actually completed a half marathon last year! Another milestone! Time to cut the weight. I got a 2 years mission. It’s do or die time!
Friends: Again, off with the toxic friends. Am comfortable with my current set of friends. 🙂
Blogging: It’s been a quiet year. Nothing high profile for the past year. Have started doing tutorials so far and I like it, will probably increase them. 😉
It’s been a year of milestones! I have cleared off my study loan debt, gotten engaged and completed a half marathon. Here’s hoping turning 28 will mean bigger and better things for me. 😉
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.
