2013: A Review

By Michiemichiee

It's the last day of 2013. I can't believe it is the end of the year. I guess time flies when you are having fun. Happy last day of 2013!!

Honestly, 2013 has been a wonderful year for me. If you told me on the 31st of Dec last year of the things that would happen this year, I would not have believed you at all.

But look at me now writing this post on the last day of possibly the biggest year of my life. Although this year had its ups and downs like usual, I am still thankful for everything that happened this year. Given that I ended 2012 on a bad note finding myself suddenly single and worn down, I could only hoped that 2013 would treat me better.

In January this year, I decided to take a short vacation to Gold Coast with some good friends to unwind and refresh for the new year ahead. I had a blast and the best memories were created on that trip. Thinking of how much fun I had there still makes me very happy.

I managed to finish my last semester at uni and graduate. When my last paper was finished, I felt so relieved. No more lectures, no more tutorials!  The only thing I missed about uni is being able to wake up late, feeling so carefree as a student. Seriously, embrace your time as a student because after uni, you may possibly face a lack of routine and uncertainty of the future.  I found it difficult to adjust to the new changes at first, but I eventually enjoyed the freedom of not being tied down by assignments and exams.

I also turned 21 in July. According to everyone around me, it means I'm officially an adult. I don't feel any older, but I know I do have to act mature, well in public anyway. I unexpectedly met the best guy in the world. I'm grateful everyday that he came into my life and for being a part of it.

I also got my license and bought a car. The car was probably my biggest investment but I love it because I bought it with my earnings.

I'm grateful for all the lessons I have learnt this year. In saying that, there are many things I would like improve looking forward into the new year.

Firstly; I will strive to spend less and appreciate all things that I already have. This will also allow me to save more which is something I hope to achieve.

Secondly; I will like to learn to control my emotions and communicate better with those around me. I know that no two people are the same, so I would love work on improving how I can communicate with different kinds of people.

Thirdly; I would like to eat more healthily. As I'm getting older, maintaining my weight is getting tough.  For the purpose of getting a healthier lifestyle, I will aim to be more active and include more leafy green vegetables and fruit into my diet.

Lastly; I know everyone says this as their new year resolutions, but I will really try to be happy and not take life too seriously. As the saying goes, "don't sweat the small stuff". With these goals, I hope that 2014 will be another great year for me and that I will be a better person because of it. I wish everyone a Happy New Year and may 2014 be an awesome year for you !!!
