Crossing off - boyfriend jeans.

Hi everyone! Is it too late to ask how did you start your year? I think not. So, how did you start yours? I started mine well. Refreshing 'cause it's back to work on the 2nd. Just had a chill brunch by the tower and walked around. Tried to take in everything, everything that happened in 2014 and the fact that it's 2015 already. Of course, it takes more than a day but it sure was a great start. :)

 Here's a piece of clothing that I've always wanted to try and I finally did on the very first day of the year. Hurray! My mum picked it for me at Forever21 and I got so excited. Mum's the bestestestest! teehee  What do you think on my first take on it? I hope you like it! :)

Dear diary : 2014.

Would you look at that, it's already the 5th of January. I think most of us already have our alarm clocks set at 6:00am 'cause we've got work/school again tomorrow! Haha (warning : another lengthy post with random photos so that something-year-old Pat won't be bored when she reads this and be like, this kid is so maarte) See I've been taking shots of nature, mostly flowers in parks because I just love the vibrant colors. Kindly take note that I am no professional photographer, I'm just a girl with a smartphone.

Jazz instrumental playlist and some tea. Right, so how do I even begin this. I kind of say that all the time, don't I? How do I even begin summarizing my 2014. Oh boy, I'm not good at this but I'll try. Do I need to insert the "oh how time flies yada yada"? But it sure does, it flies by quickly and I must say that I did feel it this year. Probably because of the things that happened. One day, I was this, the next day I was that and later on I'd be like, woah, I'm here already? Then woah, it's Christmas and of course, new year was next.

2014 has changed me a lot as compared to the other years. Perspective on a lot of things changed and I'm sure of that because the Pat back in January 2014 did not think of these. My current perspective on things may not be acceptable for the Pat back then, it just took the right kind of mistake. I guess you can say, it's one that'll change you forever. I woke up one day and realized that I'm taking a different turn, I wanted change. You can't expect things to be different if you're doing the same things and walking the same path. I decided to start choosing myself and my happiness. Some would see it as selfish but who has to live with the consequences of decisions being made anyway? Besides, if they truly cared they would just be happy that you are. I should check if the Pat in January 2016 still thinks the same. 

I cannot begin to even express how thankful I am for all the circumstances, both good and bad, that got me here, the people who were there, the people who left, the people I met, the people I reconciled with. I've never been closer to my family and the one above and I am very happy, blessed and very very very grateful. I ended 2014 beautifully and I must say with the lessons I've learned, I am very ready for 2015. 

I'm equally bad with endings as I am with openings in writing posts so let me leave you with a quote :

Making a big change is scary but you know what's scarier? Regret.
