There are some days when I'm feeling very disappointed in everything. Antsy about my employment. Impatient about relationships and generally feeling very dissatisfied with life. It comes and goes and waves but can affect me quite overwhelmingly.

This was not one of those days. This was a day when I woke up just happy and content and somehow really peppy about things. It was a day when I realised how absolutely blessed I am to have what I have -- amazing support and love from my family; wonderful friends who care for me; independence that I've always craved; safety that I didn't realise I wanted; and just general feeling of being so grateful.

I need more of these days. More of the days when I'm just glad that my chicken rice tastes so good or that I get out of work earlier than usual or that i have episodes of Gilmore Girls to watch or that I was able to drink some soda.

Here's to more of these.

Yes, it's August. yes, we're halfway-ish and more through the month. I really am still in awe at how the months go by so quickly and yet also so slowly. August has been interesting to say the least, not without it's surprises but I like that it's gotten me back into my love affair with TV and reading and just chilling again. I miss chill. Let's bring on more chill.+ + +Collapse )

As with all of my 12 of 12s, I start off with good intentions. The moment I wake up or right before i go to bed on the 12th, I set alarms that will remind me to take photos but then the day takes over and I forget it all. Work usually gets in the way and who wants photo after photo of me at my desk right?

Still, here goes the day anyway. It was the day before my friend Koko arrived in Singapore so I was just raring for the day to be over but also sad I didn't have too much to take photos of.

  • Take 12 photos on the 12th of each month
  • Post the pictures chronological order
  • Indicate the time, location, and a small comment
  • Taken from Chad at 12 of 12

    So I did it. I resigned from my job. I have something lined up but I'm still waiting for my work pass to be approved. I feel relieved at once but also pretty nervous and scared about how the future is going to turn out.

    I have some plans and trips lined up and though it's not going to be impossible to go through with it, it's just going to be more of a hassle. Still, I'm happy I did it.

    I'm not too pleased with myself that I didn't last longer at this company, though. I've been working 7 years now and I'm embarking on my 4th job. I wish I had longer staying power. But it is what it is.

    For now, I cross my fingers and hope and pray everything turns out ok.

    The second half of 2016 was not kidding when it said it would start with a bang and what a July, July has been. It started out with a quick trip to Manila (not for the best reasons) and then one intense week after another back in Singapore, but all definitely worth it and memorable.

    I'm hoping the rest of the year is just as 'fun' but not as tiring. Or maybe I need to up my resistance and energy. Or maybe not. But it was a good one, clearly.Read more...Collapse )
