Five days short of a year ago

“I do not know what makes a writer, but it probably isn’t happiness.”
— William Saroyan
Getting my daily dose of laughter, inspiration and of course, reminders on how idiotic some people can be, all on twitter: definitely something I would not have foreseen pre-2k15. Rolling right smack into the middle of the year now and it's not been as smooth sailing as last year, but this life is still a good one. I'm not gonna lie, i've been going back and forth from one spectrum of warm, fuzzy feelings to the opposite end of painful, twisted knots in my chest lately, and it's ridiculous sometimes; but here's to the warm fuzzy feelings that this post shall commemorate.

Things to be happy about: My earphones. Crepe cake for dessert. Going to sleep when it's early, getting up when it's late. Green tea Mochi in school. FREE green tea Mochi. Stars. My allowance hasn't run out. Good songs on Discover Weekly. The thought of getting new slippers. Familiar faces. Redeeming chicken at Nando's. MnM's. Cute moments with mom. Remembering things. Old jokes. The Universe of Us, out in October. Leftover pizza. Going through old notes. Warm blankets. Falling asleep to the sound of rain.
It's the little things, really.

I've got absolutely no idea why, but I've been finding it terribly hard to write down my thoughts this whole year (yeah, sounds a lot more melodramatic than "the past three months" - i tend to be slightly melodramatic). Guess I'll be looking back on 2016 in the future and not having a clue how I felt throughout. All I know is this year has been full of "no bad days" and "do something crazy"s echoing in my head - I wouldn't say I answered all their calls, nor did I reject them. I'll just put it this way.. I'm doing OK.

Luke Sital Singh: I was listening back to my early EPs recently and decided I still like them, which is a miracle really.
This is exactly, one hundred percent, how I feel about this blog. I quite like miracles, anyway.

Been catching lots of spectacular views in the past couple of days, so I'd say things are going great. But from what I've learned two nights ago, no matter how much you believe that.. it never really is (great).

Which pretty much sucks.

I can't even begin to list down the number of times I've felt this (well, last) year was magical. From tiny little things like a pair of white shoes, to bigger things like Japan, the photo above (a.k.a my NYE dream come true) and how I miraculously found the motivation to do well in college, lol - this year had something good amazing awaiting me at every single turn. To say I'm contented would be an understatement... I'm more of dumbfounded. Being my skeptical self, throughout the year, every time something even remotely good happened, I sensed something bad would follow - but 2015 is officially over now and I can safely say that throughout the course of the entire year, there were so many good things that happened, and barely any bad ones to balance it out; which I find is pretty freakin' spectacular. I'm so damn grateful for the year I've had.

2015, over and out.

Ipoh road trip, 12/2015

Trying to get a good shot of the water colour sky from inside a moving car today really got me feeling like my 15-year-old self again. The past month has been almost as blurry as my car shots - not too sure if that's a good or bad thing, but I guess you could say that it beats being a slob at home everyday, since I've been there, done that for about 17 years now. I have to admit though, right now, feeling like a slob for just a few days doesn't sound all that bad... not bad at all, actually.
