2012 is coming to an end. And I’m pretty contented with everything at the moment.
The start of the year was just normal, when the clock strike 12, we just wish each other happy new year and continue doing out own things. Or at least that’s what I remembered lol.
*January: Our own “yee sang” or “lou sang” for CNY.
*February: Trip to London, visited Borough Market and Portobello Street and got my own TLR! :D
March: Msian Night.
Lots of good things happened in 2012, I went to Spain twice in 3 months. Once in April to meet up with my family, and once in June for a week in Costa Brava. I took part in some performances for Msian Soc’s Msian Night, I danced, modelled, and tree-d :P.
*April: With family in Barcelona.
*May: Study. Exams. Revision.
*June: Nachos and ice lemon tea in Costa Brava. Nothing can beat that.
I worked during the summer in a pharmacy, and got an offer for intern after I graduate, and stayed with the loveliest landlady ever, who works in the local hospital as a nurse. And I fell in love with cats in that 8-weeks that I was there!
*July: Fell in love with ze catz.
*August: Trip to HK. Awesome food and get to know his home.
I went to HK for a week in Aug before going back home, and then he came over to Msia for a week. It was good spending time with my family, shopping with my mom. Then I had to flew back to Uk in a short notice because I got an interview for internship in hospital, which I nailed!! I was so happy when the interviewer called me to tell me the good news, and I cried after that because everything was worth it in the end, the expensive plane tickets, the limited time I get to spend at home, it was all worth it.
*October: Halloween party!
*November: Had a dramatic haircut and went out a lot with friends.
*December: Pharmacy Christmas Ball. Had to attend it because it’s my final year!!
There are of course the bad lessons in the year. I found out that I failed an exam on the day before my birthday. So of course, I practically cried my eyeballs out. The hardest thing was to tell my parents that, and although they were really supportive, it still felt like I was disappointing them in a way. And what’s not supportive is my lecturer, whom I emailed many times so that I can see her to have a look at my paper, because I wanna know what went wrong so I can learn and avoid that in the re-sit. But she was really unsupportive geez, in the end I didn’t even get to meet her before the re-sit.
And it’s really important to choose flatmates wisely. And I’ll just end it at that because this will be on the world wide web.

What I want for 2013 is to graduate successfully (with a first class, if possible), and settle into my internship nicely at the end of July.
No hopes of celebrating CNY at home yet for 2013, that’ll have to wait til 2014 I guess. :(
I sort of have the next 2-3 years planned out nicely, so I will be working towards those goals and I wish to have the strength to overcome the obstacles that will definitely come my way, trust me, they are going to be huge obstacles.
Merry Christmas and Happy 2013! Wish everyone all the happiness in the world and be strong enough to tackle everyday obstacles! :)
