Thank you 2018, next. ✨


Happy new year to all my Dayre friends, it’s day 1 out of 365 again! May 2019 be filled with days of love, bliss, happiness and good health πŸŽ‰βœ¨

How are y’all gonna spend your new year’s day? I’m likely to be staying in because I’m nursing a very bad sore throat and flu 😭

Any remedies to get rid of a sore throat in 2 days? Because I’m off to Bangkok on the 3rd and I don’t want to have a sore throat on my trip I want to enjoy all my Thai street food 😒

I’m way too sick to be doing a full fledge 2018 review but I will sum up my year in a few words!!!

In 2018...

I started off the year on a pretty bad note and my academics went on a downward spiral.

I was on the verge of getting dismissed but I took a leap of faith and finally had the courage to do what I truly wanna do – I changed my major halfway through uni!

While my CAP still haunt me from time to time, I find my Comms mods A LOT more enjoyable than the Econs mods that I used to take. I was a lot more interested and more motivated to study what I am studying!

After the switch and with psychiatric and psychological help, I find that I was more confident of myself and I was a lot less depressed; in life, in general and in my studies ☺️☺️☺️

I studied really hard for finals and my hard work paid off – I finally got an A in my entire uni life 😒 It may be nothing to some but my best grade before my switch was only an A-!!!

I may have to extend my candidature in uni, but it’s ok!!! I’m sure that I will be better off than to be spending the rest of uni struggling in something that I can’t excel in. No regrets!!! :’’’)

@adrianishikawa got his first ride, #garythegolfRline!

It was quite big switch for us, from a bike! We used to had to lug our helmets around, had to ride under rain or shine, had to fear dropping off the bike when I doze off on my pillion seat LOL but now we get the luxury of sitting comfortably inside the car!

On the flipside, Adrian is now spending A LOT more on ERP, parking, petrol and of course, his mods 🌚

As far as it doesn’t affect me or us, I try not to interfere with whatever he wanna do his car because the car is his, not mine, and the money is his, not mine hahaha anything as long as he is happy!!! ☺️

Did a summer internship with the loveliest bunch of girls, well except for some lololol πŸ˜‚

Through this internship, I’ve learnt more soft skills than hard and also realized that digital marketing wasn’t as fun as I thought it would be. It also helped me be more certain of what other aspects of marketing/comms I may wanna dabble in in future opportunities!

My boss even offered me a freelance position upon completion of my internship, and for that I’m truly humbled and thankful for!

- - - - -

Only traveled once in 2018, and it was a 7d trip to Taipei with Adrian and his family, which I have still yet to dayre about πŸ˜‚

It was really an eventful trip... It was scorching hot for our entire time there that Coen was nose-bleeding every other day, Adrian and his BIL were both down with fever and on our second last day there, the typhoon decided to hit Taipei and all the shops were shut by afternoon 🀦🏻‍♀️

Note to self: to never ever travel to Taipei during summer the weather really gtg man

- - - - -

Apart from my switch in major, another major change I experienced in 2018 is losing a lifelong friend.

She was a friend I knew since we were toddlers, we drifted in and out each other’s lives in the earlier years of our friendship but we stayed really tight in the past recent years.

TLDR, we were “best friends”.

But things happen and people change.

She’s no longer relevant to Wai and I and we are both glad to be able to finally get rid of this tiresome and toxic friendship.

We were sick of trying to sustain the friendship, we were sick of trying our best to make plans only to get turned down, we were sick of the one-sided effort we were putting in, we were sick of lame excuses that she gives when she can’t make it for meet ups, we were sick of constantly giving the same advice only to see her repeat her shit over and over again πŸ™„

More than anything, we are really disappointed.

She doesn’t deserve us as much as we don’t deserve her shit.

That’s about it for my really short recap of 2018, and well it wasn’t really a bad year, it wasn’t really a good one either!

I don’t usually have new year resolutions because I don’t fulfill them anyway lolol but this year I really wanna set some goals!

In 2019, I wanna...

✨ Be more prudent in my spending and save more

I was actually quite prudent with my spending during my months of interning and I found that tracking my expenses really helped a lot because I was constantly reminded of how much I have already spent for the month!

So here’s how I do it, I will set an expenditure limit for myself for each month based on how much “income” I will be getting for that month and try my best not to exceed that limit.

I think I have done pretty well for that few months I tried y’all can refer to #/angieseraexpenses!

And then September came, I got lazy of tracking and let’s just say my expenses exploded from then on πŸ˜‚

In 2019, I really wanna cut down on unnecessary expenses and spend wisely since I’m not gonna have any part-time jobs during my school term + I’m not getting any allowance from my parents.

I will still be tutoring in my free time, so hopefully I get to save some money 🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻

In case you wanna know, I’m using the Seedly app to track my expenses!

- - - - -

✨ Save enough money to travel at least twice!

One of the biggest lessons of 2018 is that I’ve learnt that it is far more fulfilling and enriching to spend on experiences than to be spending on material things.

So this year, I hope I stop my frivolous shopping and save up enough to fund my traveling!

I really really wish to visit Australia in May-July and return to Japan, hopefully at the end of the year 😬

- - - - -

✨ Eat a lot more and gain weight!

If you know me personally, you’ll know that I’ve been facing difficulties in trying to gain weight all my life despite eating like a monster.

I’ve been through years of skinny-shaming even by my own mum lolol and feelings of insecurity about my body.

I’ve grown to accept that this is just how my body is but I still wanna gain some weight to look a little bit more healthy!

Currently at 37.1kg, I hope to hit 40kg by the end of the year πŸ’ͺ🏻

- - - - -

✨ Mask as regularly as possible and to focus more on skincare!

I wanted to say mask everyday, but I know that’s impossible so no point in setting a resolution I know I cannot commit to.

In 2019, I hope I stop skipping my nightly skincare routine and pay more attention in taking care of my skincare now that I’m a year older 😭

And also I hope to clear my crazy stash of sheet masks I think I have around 125 sheets the last time I counted 😱😱😱

- - - - -

✨ To spend more quality time with my friends and family!!!

This goes without saying hahaha I need to stop hanging out with @adrianishikawa only and spend more time with people who are equally important to me πŸ€ͺ

- - - - -

May 2019 be filled with better and brighter days, good vibes please come my wayyy πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨
