So I thought I should do a blog post about everything that has happened this year. 2012 went by so quickly, swift as the wind~ It’s like… it’s only been 3 months; 2 months of TEP (attachment), and several weeks of study semester and now the year’s ending. (And you know, my life pretty much revolves around school and home.)
And it’s hard to retrace everything that has happened from the beginning of this year until today, 17 December 2012. It feels like a lot has happened yet nothing has happened. One thing I know is that I cried a lot this year (i.e. family matters) but I got over it very quickly, so it doesn’t really matter now, no more hard feelings now.
Um… then I found Lana Del Rey’s music during March – April this year, which was amazing, yes it was. She came to Singapore on October. I waited for her at the airport on the 23rd, but she didn’t arrive on that date, but the following day. Then I saw her on the 24th during the Mulberry Launch. I prepared a 3-page letter 1-2 weeks before the date; and in the letter, it just contains everything I’ve wanted to express to her ever since I became a fan- my thoughts, my admiration for her music, and how her music has got me through the tears and everything else. And it was really nice of her to take the letter from an arm’s length away and said ‘thank you’.
You know I wasn’t expecting so much when I first got to know that she was coming to Singapore at the beginning of October. I told myself I’m gonna just be grateful if I really get to catch a glimpse of her, even from afar, yes that’s it, even if she doesn’t get my letter, I am still happy. And yes, a lot of fans met her, kissed her, talked to her (and a couple of fans I met have watched her perform live! during her sound check) and it’s something to get envy about, of course! But I’m really grateful, genuinely, up till now, I would still say that this year has been a great year. And come to think about it, she constitutes a majority significance of the memory I have of the Year 2012.
#confessionnight: I don’t even know whether I’m creepy now. I tweet/ blog a lot about her, to her, and ended up deleting some of them because I get creeped out by my own behavior, gosh -_- I mean if I was in her position and there’s this fan who does this, um… it’s not nice.
That’s it about Lana Del Rey.
Then, about my personal life, it’s Year 2 of polytechnic life for me. I made new friends through attachment, they’re really helpful and cooperative when I worked with them for about a month. And as usual, I’m always this individual, who’s so afraid of being awkward and ended up doing things I’ve always dreaded to see myself in embarrassing situations, very blur team member….. and which is why I say, many of the people I met throughout the year have helped me, or even ‘guided’ me when I always appear so lost,
and… probably weird as well.
Then I’ve been with the same friends I made on the first day of school, for 2 years and it’s nice! They are always excellent buddies to be with; whether it’s eating (a lot of time spent fretting about this issue), revising for tests during long breaks between classes/lectures, gossiping, joking, arguing and the time spent in school.
And probably because my secondary school life wasn’t so nice back and the only memory I had of it was just fruit-tard-me-getting-bullied, these 2 years, 2011 and 2012, have been really, really, really nice.
For 2013, I guess it’d be nice to stay that way!
Um, then I hope I’ll be able to do well in my internship during February; and it’s always hard to because I find it difficult to adapt to a working environment easily, whether it is the way systems work in the office, and especially colleagues, etc, but I need to be able to overcome that. Then I hope Lana Del Rey will come to Singapore for tour during Summer, like what she told the fans here previously, and I hope I’d have saved up enough to go for her concert and watch her perform live, it’s be a ~dream~ come true. And hopefully to meet some more fans. Then of course, I hope I’ll find out what I really want to do after graduation, and I hope to graduate and pursue something I love, which I haven’t found it out yet.
