Looking Back: 2013 in a Nutshell

Ah, a lovely year has passed. Inevitable resolutions and annual insights are already being listed in mental memos... but instead of bellowing and crying out the downs I have experienced in this wild & crazy rollercoaster ride, I concocted a list of random things that made my year beautiful. Step inside the DeLorean and take a peek on the pills that made me smile.

1. My 18th Birthday 

A lovely night. So glad that my family and friends shared the magic with me in this special milestone. I enjoyed sharing my talents to others, and seeing others perform, too. My fairytale fantasies came true (I know, I know. The Unicorns were a bit over-the-top, but hey, you don't see unicorns everyday).

2. Shakespeare's Sonnets

  One sonnet a day is enough to feed my soul. With varied themes like love, eternal beauty, or mortality, these nuggets keep me going everyday.

3. Bazaars

Bazaars. Bazaars everywhere. I broke my vow of 'I-won't-give-in-to-Christmas-commercialism' and I surprisingly enjoyed visiting the black---I mean, the red & green market. Yes, it made my year. Purchasing items way below the retail price is as rewarding as finding a lost earring-lock on a silver carpeted floor.

4. Lana Del Rey

She deserves the Artist of MY Year award. This bitch's got it bad. I'm obsessed with her music videos and melancholic-summer tunes.

5. Perspective

The year has been imperfectly perfect. Every single moment, good or bad, paved the way for a clearer perspective on life.

Can't wait for 2014!
