so another year has gone by. as with every year, this moment calls for some reflections on the events that had taken place over the past 366 day.
this year was probably quite a test on my level of tolerance. i'm pretty much known as a 'bo-chup' or 'couldn't care less' individual, however, when the need arises, i'll try my best to be there. this year, this was brought to the ultimate test. for once in my life, i felt so utterly drained from the events that unfolded during a particular period of time that it seemed as if i was stuck in a never-ending drama.
then of course, there was my life as a student. my university decided that we are so smart, they can cramp everything into just 12 weeks. this translated into pure torture that would have been just manageable if not for the drama stated above, making it a complete hell. there were nights that i couldn't sleep and nights where i broke down. yet, i pulled it through, with much thanks to many individuals in my life, who helped maintained my sanity.
without a doubt, this year was also trying for my man and i. with stress level bursting its limit, he had to tolerate more of my nonsense at a higher frequency, which meant that tempers flared quite often. we do always manage to settle our difference before going off to lala-land together but still, we both agreed that if this continues, the relationship might not survive. still, i'm grateful and extremely blessed for all the good and bad times that we have had.
so now, it's 2009 and i'll be off on my virgin trip to bangkok in just 9 days time, and then come slightly more than a month later, we'll mark our 2nd year together before the ticking clock catches up on us and i have to bid farewell to him again for the pursuit of my studies. nonetheless, without a doubt, i believe that this year will be a blessed and fruitful year, with the blessing of Daddy.
happy new year, everyone! :)
