Happy New Year!
I started 2010 by reading this year's blog posts. It was pretty interesting to note how much I TRIED to be positive but I always sunk back down to reality. Oh, and it was really nice to read everyone's comments and their support for me. I'm so thankful I've got so many friends who love me and right about now, I'm filled with guilt at neglecting these friendships. :(
I thought I'd give a rundown on the highlights of this year. The ups AND the downs. But I'll try to lean heavily on the happier side of life k? :)
post. Because it reflects how I view myself in terms of relationships. And also because of the solid advice my friends doled out. Especially my Llama. :D
A little bit of soul searching
with mummy and her friend Kris. And also a newfound way of seeing Garuda. Oh and this quote: "In general, one's purpose is so closely aligned to one's life in general so as to be unnoted and unremarkable. It's the ego that demands the Headline Purpose." I have to keep reminding myself this.
Hawa's birthday, a confession that changed my life and THIS
letter to my friends. I still stand by my word. If you need me, I'm there. :)
My reprieve to Bowral
. I'm still in love with that place. :) Ifan came over. Lots of Sabbytime! :D And the wonderful discovery of Zumbo macarons.
My fave comic of all time. No, its not Gaiman. It's Zek's
! :D THIS
post. Not really coz of the content but coz all the comments made my mom laugh for days.
Where things started to take a turn for the better. That's when I realised I had fallen in love. :) I also have a post about my brother in the drafts section. I love him to bits and pieces. :D
Mummy laid out some choices
for me in the future. She truly is amazing and supportive. Love you!
This was probably the climax
of the year. Wrapping up honours and contemplating my current relationship.
I left Sydney. :( My Llama got MARRIED
. How crazy is that? :D Also had intense family bonding in Jakarta and Bandung. Auntie Ria and Uncle Irwan are awesome! :D
So that wraps everything up. Hopefully this year would be better in terms of work or studies. I'm praying that my penultimate (does returning for grad count?) return from Sydney sinks in better and comes with less complaints. :D
Good luck to everyone. Love, Shaheera.
