DRAWER

I think anyone in a relationship would be thrilled to find out your significant other has left a drawer empty for your things. Even if he complains that he doesn’t have enough space for his own things. He STILL kept a drawer empty.

At that moment, I was really touched and moved.

UNDERSTANDING AND COMPROMISES

Each year when Valentine’s Day is round the corner, we often ask ourselves the definition of love.

Is it showering your Significant Other (SO) with lots of gifts?
Is it cooking a meal for your SO?
Is it surprising your SO when he/she least expects it?

It can be any of all of the above. It can also include giving up the last piece of crispy chicken skin from Popeye’s/KFC to your SO, or getting something he/she really wants even if you have to bring your own lunch from home for a month.

Over this period of almost two years, I have experienced a variety of actions and inactions that can be defined as love. I have to say, understanding your SO and making compromises is very important to sustain a relationship. You may not agree with everything he/she does, but you know if he/she does not do it, it wouldn’t be them. Then you start to think, is it really that bad if they do what they do?

May you be happy this Valentine’s Day.

 

TWENTY FIFTEEN

If the main highlight of 2014 was me getting attached (finally, some might say), then 2015 is a different ball game.

  1. I went on a 11-day trip to Taiwan with my boyfriend!It is my first major overseas trip and I enjoyed myself tremendously! Experiencing a different culture, being extremely courteous, pigging out on the various delicacies and speaking Mandarin for, like, 99% of the time.
  2. I dropped my iPhone 6 into the toilet.That was the lowest low since my phone was only four months old. I cried. I bawled. I wailed. I was angry at myself. I scolded myself. I blamed it on my stupidity. I blamed it on my carelessness.Then, my boyfriend went to surprise me with a brand new iPhone 6. I was happy and I was sad. Happy because no one has ever done such a thing for me. Sad because I lost ALL my photos from my first ever Taiwan trip. (I’m also secretly afraid I will never get a chance to relive it).
  3. My first relationship passed the 1-year mark!It really isn’t easy, once the honeymoon period is over. There is a lot of compromise and communication to keep the relationship going and not to let your thoughts run wild. It is a challenge because my thoughts are running wild all the time!
  4. I’m no longer at my first job.Changing jobs may be really easy for every other person but it isn’t for me. So, taking that first step took a hell load of courage. It was also the first time I handed my resignation letter!
  5. My BFF got married!I was so happy for her then, and I’m so happy for her now! Sometimes, it feels like I’m living vicariously through her. Maybe I feel I don’t have the good fortune to live a complete life like she does.
  6. I applied for a BTO.
    Major milestone – checked.
  7. My Tumblr page is active again, kind of.After almost a year of inactivity and missing out on reaction gifs, I’m back with a vengeance! How I miss those glorious gifs, capturing priceless moments in movies, television shows and award ceremonies.

That is about all I can squeeze out for now.
Till then, have a happy and fruitful 2016!

WHEN WILL I SEE YOU AGAIN?

How I have stayed off blogging, I am not sure. I still love to write but I guess I love to sleep more.

There is more purpose in life now, especially when your friends start to build theirs and you start to envision your own.

Anyway, I’ve finally changed my job! I spent four years and four months on my first and previous job and it was a tough decision. I had to move out of my comfort zone, where everyone really liked and helped me, to a foreign environment where I didn’t know anyone. Yet, I know the move was essential because I need to think of my future.

Just would like to share something I said today which makes a lot of sense. Where better to share it than on my blog, where no one I know visits? I know it defeats the purpose, but it also defeats the purpose if people come up to me to ask me about what I’ve written. It’s already written!

KJ: Sometimes people mistake good time management as having an easy job.

MAKE IT SIMPLE. MAKE IT WORK.

I don’t know if anyone I know still reads this blog considering the last post was dated five months ago. Even WordPress changed its layout. But I have to say something – oh, how I’ve missed writing!

Writing my thoughts on a blog and saying them out are two things altogether. Writing promises an entire world of thoughts whereas I’ve always been a little stuck in the oral department.

Until I met this wonderful guy with whom I can really be myself with. I can laugh like a hyena, talk like a machine gun, swear like a sailor and cry like a baby. People who really know me know that I don’t behave like this in front of people I’ve just met or barely know. So I feel really lucky to have met this guy even though I feel he’s been shortchanged sometimes because girls are complicated and I’m no different. I think I may have portrayed myself a little less crazy than I really am. But if any males are reading this, read this article to find out more.

Till next time.

LABELLED

Earlier this week, my mind was bogged down about the presence of labels.

I had no idea if I would feel better with them or without them. Somehow, I came to the conclusion that I can accept no labels as long as things run its course in its own time.

Then a few hours ago, I got labelled.

My heart is still beating very fast.
