A year had passed, everything feels like it happens so quickly. A blink of an eye and 2015 had flown. 2015 was alright. I don't know, i have mixed feelings. It was a year of laughter, tears, hatred and love. Personally for me, 2015 was not the peak of my teenage years. Growing up I had always been the odd one out. I feel like I don't socialise well and maybe I'm the one whose blocking myself from the outside world. People closest to me would know already by now that I am pretty short tempered and obstinate. If i have my mind set on something, it would be hard for me to think otherwise.
I don't know if this is something I am blessed with or its something I am doomed with because to be completely honest I think everyone needs that one friend whose very 'frontal' or direct and trust me when I say I can be that friend. I can be the one who just make assumptions based on the facts and be completely ignorant with the heart. Once I have my mind on something, I have solid points, points that proves I am correct. All just to make sure I win the argument. Sometimes you need people who are so direct and help you point out the facts. On the other hand, people like me are the most annoying friends you can ever encounter in your life. I can say things without thinking and sometimes I don't seem to put myself in their shoes. Well, for whatever reason it is, meeting new people was not something easy for me. I had always stick with the same group of friends and don't get me wrong, I love them! I am grateful for them and I wouldn't change a thing but sometimes it gets boring. We do the same stuff all over again in the same place with the same people. Take no offence but I do get bored of meeting the same people again and again. This year our group had somewhat expanded. Our lunch table was filled with more laughter and more stories. More experiences and in addition, I had more people to reach out to.
Lets start with the first half of the year. Year 9. Our days were filled up with exams and our minds were stocked up with prom. I was one of the few that took the national exam, UNAS. To be honest, I don't know why I took it, I'm not even staying here after I graduate. I guess it was more of a back up plan kind of thing? In case I stay here and want to become a doctor, that would completely be out of the blues, then this national exam is my ticket out. With that being said, I had more weight on my shoulders. I took courses specifically for the national exams just because the school does not teach the same stuff, ugh. On top of that was the semester exams which affected a huge part of our grades. Actually maybe only a small part, so it isn't actually a big of a deal but if your grades aren't nice then you might want to do good on the semester exams. It was hectic and tiring.
Now moving on to one of the highlights! PROM! We had our junior prom last year! I had sooooo much fun helping my friends get their prom dates and watching people getting asked out. Sadly for me, I didn't have much luck. Or at least I thought so! A friend of mine finally asked me to go to prom with him, it was a friendly date, nothing special. He got me flowers and did the promposal just several weeks before prom HAHAH close one! All four of us, me, Sasha, Karis and Vallin, got picked up. Our prom was themed Noir and the dress code was black and white. It was a semi-formal kind of event. I LOVE OUR DRESSES. I loved my dress, it was a short black dress with spaghetti strings and it had a sparkly belt around the waist. Also on the back was a sheer light black fabric that act as a high low to the dress. I then paired it up with a Michael Kors clutch! Totally loved it! Oh and did i mention my heels were 12 cm high? I suck at walking in heels, I was in pain the whole night but you know what they say, beauty is pain. I guess this one could also fit in the beauty category. Oh whale. I swear I had tons of fun, everything happened so quickly. I'll include several pictures below!
I would like to continue with the rest of the year but I completely forgot something. So lets pause and rewind a bit to March 2015. How could I possibly forget? Last year our grade went to Beijing as a study tour. IT WAS SOOO MUCH FUN! Plus it brought the four of us even closer. Quick story. So we were all told to choose our roommates and one room can only fit two. I was with Vallin and Sasha was with Karis. We arrived in the hotel on the first day quite early and were still able to visit each other's rooms. We were told specifically that no one is allowed to stay in each other's room. That night, Sasha and Karis stayed over in our room. It was around 10 I believe when the teachers start going to rooms and start checking if anyone stayed over. We were panicking because Sasha and Karis was in our room. So we did something quite stupid but surprisingly IT WORKED hahahaha. I went to the toilet with Sasha and Karis, they jumped into the tub and closed the shower curtains and I locked the toilet door. Vallin then finally open the door and I could hear them talk. So i just turned on the water on the sink and play with the water so it sounds like I was washing my hands or maybe showering idk. Vallin even offered her to wait for me i think? THANK GOD she didn't and left. Close enough.
A bit later in March, I also had a short trip to Japan with my family. It was only for around 10 days. I will include some pictures later. We went to Disneyland, we went to see the Sakura and tried their authentic cold soba. The weather was not that cold, the temperature was around 10 to 18 degrees celsius but the wind was strong, therefore we still needed our jacket. I don't have a lot to say about the trip. It was enjoyable but it was short. Disneyland was too packed and we couldn't go on a lot of rides. It was pretty sad.
So that was the first half of the year. Moving on to the rest of 2015. Year 10. Even more hectic. We have our personal project. I can't write as much because this academic year every weekend was not a rest day, instead a day to catch up all the home works and assignments. I could manage to put up some pictures and highlight some events. I would like to start with the one that had been putting up the most stress for me. My personal project. Just like the name, I made it personal. I love baking and I always had a passion on food. My mom cooks and bake as well. I used to stay in the kitchen and help while she baked her favourite and also my favourite kue nastar, or also called pineapple tarts! They were delicious and to die for I swear! So because of my past background, I decided to make video tutorials on cupcakes! Not just any cupcakes though, I wanted to include exotic ingredients and unusual ingredients into the cupcakes. I wouldn't call myself the best, but my recipe did work and it tasted somewhat tasty.
Not a lot happened during the rest of the year. Probably several sleepovers, I go out a little bit more than usual and I started going to the gym with Sash. It was nice I guess? I got to know more people and might've start talking to someone special.
If anything I have learned from 2015 is to always put the extra effort and have fun. No matter what we do, as long as we put our mind to it and try our best, everything will turn alright. I also try not to overthink everything. Start small and work your way through it. Before I move on to 2016 I would like to thank some people (in no specific order because I love you all and you guys all mean a lot to me). Oh plus I don't want to mention any names so read and decide for yourself!
To my best friend, gym/workout buddy, pp filming buddy and my second home, I have a lot to thank you for. Thanks for staying with me during thick and thin. Even though your excessive obsession on band members sometimes annoy me, I still love you loads. I want to thank you fro dropping me home a lot of times too HAHAHA and for staying over at my place when I get lonely. Thanks for letting me stay over at your place when I don't feel like being home. I'm happy that I could legit show up at your front door and visit anytime you're home, I am grateful for that. You know, we should really catch up in the whole gym thing again since we've been off lately. I want my abs and I know you want it just as bad. I have to work extra hard to get curves like yours mannnn. Thanks for lending me your clothes because I feel like wearing it and because it's cute af. I can't thank you enough for what you have done for me. For all the nights we went through together. And couldn't tell you how sorry I am for all the troubles I get you into. I am surely a bad influence to you heheh but please stick with me. I hope this year, our friendship will become tighter as ever and I hope we get to go out a whole lot more because I enjoy spending my night having deep conversations about guys with you!
To you, my best friend since grade 5 that I could call my sister. You have done a lot for me and I do not know how I could possibly repay you. Thanks for picking up my calls at 7 in the morning and listen to my weird ass dreams. You have never judged me and I always have your support whatever I do. Thanks for staying by my side even when I couldn't stay by yours. Thanks for accepting me for who I am. I want to thank you for wise advices on life and for cheering me up when I am down. You always know how to make me feel better. Thanks for coming to my place every now and then to talk and catch up. I am very sorry that I had always been so lazy to get you water so you had to get it yourself. But you know where everything is already, you've been to my place so many times. I miss the swimming lessons we took near your place, it was tiring but despite the fact, it was fun. I felt like it made me get in shape HAHAH idk. I miss your dog too and swimming at your place. Remember those days where I used to be so obsessed with your nail polish collection? And those days where were used to bake together. Hmmm fun times. Well, I hope you could forgive me for all the mistakes I have made and continue our friendship in this year of 2016!
To my (not so) innocent, healthy best friend, I could talk about ANYTHING with you. Our convos are always so random. Your lunch always makes me feel so guilty and damn your body makes me so jealous. Thank you for our weird talks that always seem to crack me up. Thanks for not getting mad when we pick on you hehehe and thanks for helping me with math! You're a genius! Who the hell gets perfect grades on math HIGH LEVEL. You are insane. With your busy schedule we don't get to hang out that often )); We do however send each other ugly snapchats and talk through line. In this year of 2016 I want us to be even closer and spend time together! Thanks for the delicious food too! By the way, you haven't send me the recipe to your salsa thing nor the burrito thing. And now you agree that my nail polish is baby blue right?
To whom I ship the most with Aktsa! Thank youuu for answering me when I need help with something. I hope your transition to your new school went well and semoga ga jomblo lagi yaaa. I know we rarely hang out due to the packed schedule we have and we only talk over Skype calls or Line but that definitely does not stop us from being close friends! Thank you for understanding me so well and thanks for telling me what is right and what is wrong. Also I would like to thank you for the stupid convos we always have! Please please pleaseeee go out more with me! I would like to talk to you about a whole bunch of stuff!
Last but not least, to my one and only, best friend and also boyfriend. I love you dearly. You are my 24/7, my go to, my home away from home. You are the straw to my berry, the smoke to my high and everything sweet. I'm glad I could call you mine! You've been so kind to me and there's no way I could thank you enough. I would like to start with the late night convos. Thank you for all the nights you spent talking to me instead of sleeping. I'm so sorry for messing up your sleeping schedule. Thanks for picking up my calls when I couldn't sleep. Thanks for telling me to sleep when it gets too late. Thanks for all the days we spent together HAHAH I love hanging out with you! I don't usually watch movies but ever since we hang out I've been going to the cinema more. Thanks for being so open with me and thanks for keeping me in my best mood. You always seem to have your ways to make me smile and crack me up. I love you loads and I'm looking forward to spending this year with you!
And there it is, the end to this post (finally). I hope this year will be better than last year. Cheers to 2016! Here's to a brand new chapter!! xx
