Fun fact: Do you know that prelude and prologue are similar, just that prelude is meant for music and prologue is meant for literature? While foreword is written by somebody else to introduce a writing that precedes a preface? Okay, maybe its only fun for me because I am too noob to know wth
The past 4 or 5 days just went by in a blur because time went by so fast and before I know it, it is just 2 weeks down to 2018.
Before I write something decent, check out the cutest korean-ish baby I met:
Spot the #mummyphotobomb, lol.
Recently, things have been looking better and I am really very grateful for the blessings in my life. 🙂 The new acquaintances and friends, new experiences, new depths and heights of growth and development in life, as well as an event filled December to end off 2017!
I usually do not see a new year as a new starting point (to be honest, every day on the calendar is unique and technically, a new year can be determined as a ‘new year’ at any point in time acc. to which day you want to consider a ‘new’ year) but rather just changing of the number on the last digit on the year when I fill up forms and complete assignments. I also always sort of know how the next year will be. Usually, I expect relationships to be alright, and I always know what job I will be involved in or which school I will be in and I just feel that the path is clear, in a way. It is like, I always know where I will be, where I am headed.
But for 2018, when people ask me about my plans, I go…
Oh wait, I am classier than that
in my imagination so I was probably more like…
(I probably look like the little spastic girl much much more, I know, lol)
And it upsets me because I am a planner. My job is in planning and evaluation. I analyse everything. Then I make decisions and calibrate my emotions accordingly. But now, as 2017 is coming to an end, I am almost clueless about 2018.
Panic max? OF COURSE.
The one thing I am very grateful for is my current work place. I feel like I am in the right place (okay, most of the time, though there are acute moments when I really hate my job and the people here as well) because I have a good supervisor, I have really fun and awesome colleagues, and I love 80% of my job scope! According to my logic of the happy-work-place-triangle (basically, I believe that to stay or be happy in a job, you have to pass the ‘triangle’ overall score acc. to the 3 domains: boss, colleague, jobscope) I have all 3 aspects checked and we all know how damn hard that is to come by. Not to forget how meaningful and rewarding some days and projects are.
Of course, I can’t be more grateful for the people in my life, from my family to my friends. Somehow, over the years, I have come to forge really healthy and good friendship with some girls (I always thought I have no girl-friends) who are not the ones I meet often but still feels as close as ever when we meet up.
And of course, shortly after 2017 began, I ended a relationship that I thought would last til the day I draw my last breath. To be honest, the end of a relationship is sad but it is always for the better. It has got to be. I mean, if it ended because this person wasn’t the one, then all the more better that it ended isn’t it?
And now, what’s going to happen in 2018? I almost clueless, be it job or relationship because I don’t even know where I will be 1 year from now.
But I sure hope it is beside the one I love. 🙂
Shall spend my NYE writing a proper post on 2017 and what I hope and plan for 2018 and stop here for now
while I hyperventilate.
bye. for now.
