when abs were real

A summary of my first time experiences in 2015. I know it’s already the fourth of January and this should’ve been up at the end of 2015. Sometimes you just don’t want to write, okay? Don’t want to do anything. This Last year has been nothing short of amazing and it’s probably better than 2014, especially the first half of the year before everything went semi-shitty after August. This year I started up new hobbies and listened to way more new music (fallen in love with the tropical house genre & Glimmer of Blooms followed me on insta!!). I got out of the country more often even if it were to the same places. I was close to a heartbreak in the early part of the year and I guess you could call that my lows. And I’m getting more comfortable being in my own skin. So, 2015 had been a pretty chill and fun filled year and it’ll definitely be missed.

The best year yet. 2015 was definitely a year of exposing myself to new experiences and of course, the deepening of those few lasting friendships even further. Photoshoots, bingsu and KTV probably took up my life during the second half of the year while drinks & nights at Wala made the first 5 months of 2015. It’s insane how much I got out of Singapore this year, so blessed. Then, I also started up this site and made sure I put together the many videos I accumulated over the past 2-3 years. (‘: Also, exploring and expanding my creative side with water colour xmas cards (i’m glad i made people’s day; i think handmade cards sealed in envelopes with handwritten notes are the way to go). This year, 2016, don’t know what you’ll bring but I guess starting the first week off with 5 intensive days at MBS w OABFF where we stood for many hours, played the waiting game, almost froze to death, ate out of bento boxes, greeted 2500 people, chaperoned for gala night, watched/danced the 1975 perform, helped out an executive lunch w all the big shots and earn a few hundred dollars don’t sound like a bad deal. The only downer to it was waking up as early as 445am and getting home at latest 11pm. We couldn’t see the sunrise, couldn’t feel the sun’s heat and it definitely felt bizarre when we left work while the sun’s still out at 4pm. Would I do it again? It’s a speedy way of earning my moolah but I might have to think this one through. Now, back to reality. Uni has started (while I was working) and I really need to catch up on my sleep. What’s funny during these 5 days is that, I had at the very least, 5 hours of sleep each night but I still feel so damn tired.  I’m definitely getting old.
