Slightly late in the new year’s resolution game, but I finally had the time to sit down and pen this out; and better late than never, so here goes.

Books I Read in 2017

books-i-red-in-2017I find it slightly ironic that I am sharing this post on new year’s eve as most people are out partying, or ready to celebrate the countdown to the start of 2018.

But here I am, in front of my laptop, typing away about something so opposite, which is the list of books I read in 2017. So if you are not into books, you can skip this post as it is as literal as the title states. On the contrary, if you are a bookworm, here goes!

Journey in 2017: Turning 23

turning 23

As you grow older, you will find birthdays to be less of a big deal and you stop having crazy wild expectations of how it will turn out to be. So I turned 23 the end of last month, and there was no big parties or gatherings (not saying that I used to go all out in previous years), but my mum made me an apple pie and I celebrated with my parents by eating pie and having good seafood dinner with some of their friends. And it was actually really nice, and the people that mattered to me spent time and effort to let me know how much they care about me, and that was all I needed. You guys definitely made me feel very special.

Besides my birthday being a day to celebrate my existence (this sounds really self-absorbed), I wanted to just pen a post about some lessons I have learned, or to be more accurate, the lessons I am working on at this moment.

Living Life Unapologetically

unapologetically

Here’s me, writing genuinely from my heart. And that means it’s not going to be my usual point formed structured posts. Here’s me, putting my jumbled talkative thoughts into words. And that means there will not be any filters or uncertainty. Here’s me, writing out my thoughts, unapologetically.

It has been a crazy month for me. And honestly, things have been pretty insane ever since I moved here. I know I have said it so many times, but making a big life change does not only mean physical, situational or geographical change. There is so much you need to learn, so much you put to risk, so much you need to let go of. It is a leap of faith, that’s what it is.

It’s been crazy, really, everything that is going on. To say it’s all smooth sailing would be the biggest lie. I have done many things wrong, stumbled here and there, made many mistakes that I cannot take back, and even hurt people that I never thought I would have. At some point, I started questioning myself, if I was being utterly selfish. To leave everything behind and just do what I wanted as I wished. I started to feel this constant nagging guilt, that I put myself before anyone else.

But through time and some reflections, I realized, this is indeed what I needed. I learned that it’s okay to put myself first.

Journey in 2017: Living Alone

livingalone

Introduction: I have committed myself to create a “journey in 2017” post at the end of each month throughout this year. This collection of content is to share my journey of trying different things that are aimed to contribute to my wellness and lifestyle as a whole. It can be something small or big, I am just challenging myself to be conscious and aware of the new things I am trying out.

I know there has been a hiatus in posts here, and there are millions of excuses I would like to make, like the fact that I have been sick 3 times over the 7 weeks since I moved to KL, and how I am still adapting to my new job, and the good ol’ writers’ block getting to me etc, but a commitment is a commitment, so I do apologize.

But I am back now! And I want to talk about one of the things that I am adapting to right now, which is living alone. I know I have lived alone before since I was 18 when I moved to Kampar to study. But this time around, it seems very different somehow, so I thought I would share my journey with you.

So if you are contemplating if you should move out and live alone, or if you are about to move to someplace new to stay, away from your hometown, here is the truth (the very honest truth) about living alone.
