2015 was an interesting year for many reasons:
FIRSTLY, I became legal!! Bring on the alcohol! (Sorry, had to).
I met some people whom I consider to be some of my closest friends, including one person that I’ve updated to best friend status. I’ve also met a person who I’d rather not speak to again, because it’s just plain awkward. I met people with whom I stopped conversing with, but it was purely because I didn’t mesh well with them, and that’s quite alright.
2015 was a year of stepping out of my comfort zone. I never thought that I would be hosting a weekly radio show all by myself, where there’s a possibility of hundreds or even thousands of people tuning in. But I am.
It was also a year of learning more about my emotions. I never thought that I would be able to help friends through emotionally damaging times and actually give sound advice, but I did it, and my advice was surprisingly good. I never thought that I would have emotional breakdowns where I would sit in the bathroom sobbing uncontrollably, but I had 3. I never thought I would have a panic attack, or have a counsellor tell me that I might have mild anxiety, but that occurred too.
2015 was when I realized that I’m absolutely shitty at hard sciences. 1.92 GPA ew *shudders* Thus, I switched myself into the BA program in the faculty of Health Sciences.
2015 was also a year of discovering new hobbies and learning new skills. I found out that I have a talent for writing great spoken word poetry, and I’ve kept it up ever since. I’ve been writing better lyrics, which is awesome too. I started learning how to play piano, and furthered my guitar skills.
2015 was a year when I had to experience things I thought I never would have to, ever. And I hope to never experience them again.
I also got in a couple of banters on the Internet (Facebook) with some ignorant people.
2015 was when my small acne spots reappeared on my forehead, I didn’t ask for them to be there. But I guess my acne got tired of my back.
In 2015, I didn’t manage to record my EP or participate in any slam poetry competitions, but that’s okay, there’s always next year.
2015 was a great year (for the most part), and I will try my hardest to make 2016 even better!

I am currently having the dreaded quarter life crisis. It’s not a good time. It’s finals week and I should be studying, but here I am worrying about my future and why I haven’t achieved any of my dreams yet.
I thought that by now, at 19 years old, I would have done what I wanted the future me to do at 16. When I was 16, I wanted the future me to work in the music industry, either as an artist, or in sound production. One of my life goals was to appear on the cover of Alternative Press with my band. But that hasn’t happened yet has it?
I thought that I would have visited Los Angeles or New York or San Francisco by now. I would have made connections and be one (or more) step(s) closer to achieving my dreams. That hasn’t happened yet either.
I thought I would be in a loving relationship with a really great guy who would love me for everything that I am. But I am still not quite there yet either.
The coolest thing I’m doing with my life is volunteering at my campus radio station. That sounds kinda pathetic doesn’t it?
