MISC: 2013

being seventeen is crazy.

you know, when you spent many years watching “seventeen-year-old” protagonists in movies and dramas, listening to songs about seventeen-year-olds’ first loves and regrets, and imagining all the stuffs that’s gonna happen when you’re seventeen, then bam, you are seventeen. bizarre. I used to think life would be like on the screens, or like song lyrics. but boy, was I wrong. I spent most of the time this year in rage. and stressed out.

ok, let’s start this roundup thing!

perhaps Im forgetful or nothing really changed this year, it seems like everything was the same as the last time the Earth was at this point on the orbit. hmm, let’s see. I’ve watched thirty movies , five dramas and fourteen books during the past twelve months. feels like a lot weh but in fact I just sit, sit and sit.

here’s some flashback photos in the most unchronological arrangement. sorry!

so. in 2013, I’ve…

started Meatless Monday – tbh, I cheat. sometimes when I eat with my family I’ll just pick the meat out from my food. haha. and sometimes I had to drag people around me to have a meatless meal together. but this more or less helped me cut down my meat intake. 

got my driving licence – which has nothing to be proud of. lol. ’cause many of my friends got theirs too. haha.

become a Tumblr scroller – I spent almost an hour on average every day just scrolling and scrolling Tumblr. the comments, the GIFs and the photos. practically a place where comedians and drunkards gather. but they’re all just ordinary teenagers, really.

had Studio Ghibli films and rock music occupying most of my time – I watched lots of Ghibli films this year. watch, rewatch, repeat process for their other animations. as for rock music, dont you think the thump thump thump have a calming effect? plus they make a good combo with Add Maths.

had no idea for course and college yet – I originally picked psychology. but dear, by the time I start my job my peers already start working towards their first bucket of gold and get married and have a family ok. right now I’m back to the turnoff hmmn.

backpacked Taiwan – not really tho. I stayed at Taipei and Taichung only. and I didn’t bring just one backpack! anyway, it’s a great experience to go somewhere without adults. blogging ’bout this soon!

written Just a Minute posts – I started last year but this is the first year I have all twelve Just a Minute posts. they keep the blog updated and I can keep track of what I’ve done for the month.

helped and played originals – the first ori was camp song. the first draft lyrics actually had my birthdate in it(!) but oopsie we changed camp date. the second one was graduation song. I helped contribute four words in the lyrics okay they’re 勇敢去吧. hahaha!

bought a new gear for Baby Nick – read about it here. :)

and last, what’s my…

biggest regret? – not holding Soul Rock 2! something I’ve looked forward to since the last one. Moses, Tay and I even had the whole floor plan and song list out. also the merchandise! but alas. what a sad case.

Happy New Year! have a great year ahead! ^^

cheers!
