Did not start out on a great note when I found out that an acquaintance had passed away... Morbid thoughts sink in, naturally. And now that i'm 22, funerals and weddings are plausible events...
Went for a Primary School friend's wedding in Jakarta this May too, with 2 other close friends. It was great fun, dressing up and trying to look good...
It was a rare chance to get out of the country too... :)
I started this blog in April, some days after my 22nd birthday.. and look where I am now! I derive great pleasure sharing my manis and having plentiful of encouragement from everywhere. And I learn more too :) Felt more focus and purposeful since I started blogging...
This year I also bought quite a few Mandopop and Cantopop Concert DVDs. I love music a lot. A pity I can read scores or have natural talent on instruments lol. But I love listening to music. Everywhere I go, and recently, whatever Im doing! ;P
My purchases also included an increase (exponential, mind you) of nail polishes!!! I have just gotten a Helmer, courtesy of my parents of course, and have filled 3 and a half shelves of them. Just polishes, treatments, Seche Vites etc and tools are elsewhere! Pretty impressive huh!!
I am also more interested in makeup this year and skincare. I have to start looking my age instead of looking older than my elder sister! >.< I get that tooooo much. Not helping that my bf who is a decade older, looks much younger than me! >.< Started using toners again and it helped shrink my enlarged pores. For one, I love to scrutinize the flecks of *eeew* on Biore/mud nose packs hehehehe after I pulled them off my nose! :D heh!
I am also weening myself off The Bodyshop addiction! Looking more to their skincare now and stopped myself from getting more showergels. I have enough to last me till they expire in 2013! >.<
I have also been on a roll this year, winning 3 giveaways here and more in local giveaways. *wow* time to give back the love in 2011!! :D
Studies wise, things have been good, Im still in the groove... just that I have to buck up and get my Final Year Project going... *sulks*
Been losing some steam and focus lately, and everyday is kinda a torture of sorts. Motivating myself aint easy, but I gotta start somewhere. Cutting down tasks to step-by-step chunks are gonna be helpful!!
Comparing 2009 and 2010, I have moved on a lot. From destructive relationships and people whom I now realise their true nature... I am proud to be where I am today. Funny thing is how so many of my friends have been commenting on how blissful I look in photos and asking whether bells are ringingggg.... :/
I have loads to learn, long way to go. I have been giving hell to my bf, to be brutally honest. And he has been the sweetest one ever, to me. Always. Without fail. If not, it's accidental. I am blessed. :) And so, I gotta buck up and be responsible towards him and us...
Wow, it's a big year for me. I am graduating in 7 months and then, maybe take a trip elsewhere to see the world in its state and then get to work. A routine may be good for me... I can only hope I meet great people and be disciplined myself!
I am also planning to take up a Diploma and be a certified nail technician... :) And venture to have a home salon for days Im off work and all geared up to prettify others' nails ;P
Most importantly, I hope to be around for people who need me, even Stompy. He is getting no younger and often I get nightmares that I wake up to find him motionless... Such a day will arrive, but till then, he's my awesome rabbit! Dont think I'll have another...
It is finally time to grow up, Jamie. and taking care of myself, inside and out.
On a lighter note, I have done my NYE mani and pedi! Looking bling-tastic! But I dont really have made any confirmed plans with bf though... But i'll be rocking them anyways! :P
Let me know what you have done! ;)
See ya 1st Jan 2011, have a safe and euphoric celebration!
