A quick rundown on what made my 2013.
1. Bzzzzzzt. Definitely one of the highlights of my year, was the time when I got my first tattoo. Have long planned to get one and I remember to being so excited for this day. Of course, I felt nervous, who wouldn’t? I mean, it’s technically an open wound. But, after just a few minutes and buzzing and needle-work, I finally had my tattoo! It was all worth it. Truthfully, I’m thinking of getting another one really soon.
2. Boracay Escapade. I’m truly fortunate to have the chance to visit Boracay twice. It was truly a wonder & sight to behold. There is something for everybody, whether you’re laidback, adventurous or party-frenzy person, in Boracay. I will be back soon, when I get my bikini body to flaunt (I’m not giving up on that).
3. First Backpacking Trip. Yes, my first international & first backpacking trip rolled into one. This was, by far, the most exciting part of my 2013. I’ve learned a lot and it makes me want to travel more. Vietnam & Cambdia were definitely the perfect destinations for a first-time backpacker.
4. Quitting my Job. Some people say that it was a stupid thing to do, and I agree. It was stupid, but it just felt so right. I had my reasons in doing so, and I had no regrets. I got to focus on myself and to the important people in my life.
2013 had its ups and downs. It was both a great and, at times, a bad year. But amidst all the difficulties I faced, I’m happy and blessed to welcome another year, another year to make the most out of life, and another year to achieve my dreams.
I don’t intend to ask 2014 to be a great year, I will make it so.
