Another year wiser.

Well, I just turned twenty.

Yes, I'm old. Sighs. 

Anyhow, it was quite nice as I celebrated with friends.

They gave me pretty amazing presents. Chocolates, Starbucks card and food (Japanese food).
So yea, I'm thankful.

Thank you.

It's nice to celebrate with friends. 
Because in a way, it reminds me that I'm not alone. That I have friends that cares.

It's sweet and I'm really thankful.

Too bad, I don't have any pictures to show the celebration.

But I have to say, they were pretty amazing because I was sincerely surprised and shocked. I mean, I didn't even know it was for my birthday. 
So yea, it's a real surprise birthday party. 
I was really surprised.

So once again, thank you.

Thank you to anyone who has been my friend.

Thank you to anyone who wished me Happy Birthday.

Even though, I'm 20 years old. I don't feel older or anything. I still feel like me.

I guess, to me, getting older means improving yourself while retaining the true you.
So yes, I still behave like a five year old.

Just so you know, my parents bought me a teddy bear for my birthday because I been complaining about how my mother threw out all my toys without asking for my permission.

So yea.

Anyhow, growing older feels the same to me. Like, I'm still me. Not older or younger. Just time ticking.
But then again, age is just a number. 

It's what kind of meaning you put to that number that matters.
And I choose not to put a meaning.
I choose to just be me.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.

Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
