Gratitude Post 2014

I basically started writing this on the 21st so that I’d have exactly 10 days to sort out my thoughts and give 2014 a good ending, by giving the people who deserve my appreciation a dedication. Last year, I did one on my dayre account and barely anyone knew about it. If you happen to see this go see if you’re one of the people I thanked!!! (-:

This year has no doubt been the year where I experienced and learned so many new things. Like I’ve said before, I don’t regret a single thing, because all my choices are what I’ve wanted at that point in time and I may decide that I dislike the choice I made, but it doesn’t mean that I regret it. There are certain groups and individuals I’d like to thank this year and this post is dedicated to these beautiful people, as well as my learning experiences of the year.

204’11 clique (7/8):
Didn’t meet many of you individually or anything this year so just gonna thank y’all as a whole. You guys have been great and all, being funny & not changing (which is very nice). I’m so glad we met up at the start of the year for the 204’11 BBQ!! We got to catch up a little bit before everything got busy in JC. I also just realised that all of us are in JC? This is amazing yet kind of sad because we will forever be busy hahaha. But love you guys, and thank you so much for existing & just being you guys!!


OG 22:
YOU GUYS!! Ok I’m rly lazy to insert a photo of my OG but these 2 are my main bimbz so. They accompanied me through the quiet days of orientation!!! My OG was so quiet and I’m the most noisy one (as always?). These 2 are my bimbz & I always can’t wait to have a catch up session with them. We waited way too long for the last one and I hope our next one will be soon! Love you girls and thank you for existing and simply making my life fantastic during orientation. Seriously, you girls are da bomb!!! (-:


NHAJ Class of 2015:
These fun bunch accompanied me through the scariest first few days of school and I’m so thankful to have met all of them because somehow I found strength in numbers!! It’s so nice to know several people who I was not close to in NH in AJ, chatting & laughing like we’ve known one another for a long time.



16 people, who are all filled with crazy amounts of energy and extremely fun. Even though we are not the most academically-inclined class in the college, we will try our best!!!!!! Thank you guys for all the fun and craziness that we’ve been through the entire year and I can’t be more grateful for everything (-:


Closest friends from 29/14:
Thank you guys for being so crazy and tolerating me and one another for a year HAHAH. Next year will be hell and let’s strive to get good grades together!!! You guys have been nothing but supportive and I’m so glad to have y’all as classmates.

Amanda Lim:
Little dweeb!!! Thankful for her existence in my life! I love her even though she whines so much and sometimes I just treat her like my little sister cos she really feels like one to me HAHAHA. We spend the most time together and she’s (most of the time) so supportive of my choices and I feel comfortable around her so and I think that’s all that matters. AND we need to study hard together okay???

Jia Ning:
I still remember how I met her and somehow we became kinda close after orientation period after we realised we’re in the same class. Her sense of humour is my fav not even kidding HAHAH. She cracks me up so bad and the best part is, she doesn’t even realise it! That’s how amazing she are at making me laugh, and I love everyone who can make me laugh.

 She’s so tiny!!! HAHAH but she’s hardworking and I feel like I can be more like her but then I’m so lazy (probably lazier than her -winks-). She’s like this bubble of happiness and I’m always glad to have her around in class and after class! 
SO GLAD TO HAVE JOINED THIS CCA AND DISCOVERED SO MANY FRIENDS. This bunch is the funniest that I have ever encountered and they can always make me laugh no matter how bad my day has been. Recently we also spent a lot of time together and it’s been really crazy and nice to see them every other day because they can always make my day??? Despite how I play, despite how difficult training can be for me, they are there. I have half a year more to spend with them before the next IJCs and I can’t wait to train harder and go further on this journey with all of them! And to the seniors, thank you for founding this CCA and thank you guys for being such dedicated and nice seniors. You guy have been role models 🙂

Special thanks –
(1st row, 3rd from left) – Jia Qi:
Didn’t interact with her much in Nanhua and boy am I glad to have talked to her in AJU and became a little closer! Best captain award goes to her?? (Sorry Matien) She’s so dedicated towards the CCA it makes me thankful to have her as the captain. I’m also glad we can talk nonsense and even study together (the few times we did). I really enjoyed the holiday trainings because I also got to interact with her more 🙂

(1st row, 2nd from right) – Weisheng:
We only became closer this year (because same CCA & previously same class) and I’m so thankful for his presence HAHA. He makes everyone laugh all the time and he’s so nice to everyone. Have I mentioned before that he used to be (and maybe still is) my role model? We didn’t talk a lot in secondary school despite being in the same class for 2 years and I’m kinda happy that we got to talk more this year and of course, know each other more!!

(2nd row, girl on the left) – Chuan Hwee:
Also nhrian!! So glad to have known her better here in AJU. She can be so blur yet so funny at the same time HAHAHA. It’s nice to have her as a friend because she is always motivated to do better for (and with) the team. Thankful for her and her lame jokes (sometimes) during trainings HAHA.

(Not here) – Josephine:
AYE budz. Thank you for being you haahhahaha I’m so thankful for having you in the team honestly. You’re so funny and most of the time I just spend on laughing at you. Keedz, but for real, I like how we can talk about anything and you’re always so funny and I LOVE YOUR REACTIONS because they are one to watch! HAHA thank you for being such a lovely & gay teammate thank you for existing!!!

To the new guys:
Thank y’all for being so active and nice and everything!!! The Whatsapp chats are only active because of you guys and it’s nice to see positive energy from y’all all the time. Also, you guys are really great people to talk to and have fun with!!!

408’13 Clique (only photo with 7/8):
Even though we haven’t been meeting up very regularly, the love that I received from them individuals have been ever so lovely. The thing is, I never expected us to stick together after O’s and surprisingly, we did and the nicest thing is, some of us still study together and go out sometimes. Mostly Yu Qie, Sandra and Shihui but I’ve spent more time this year with them than I’ve expected to!! That’s enough for me because we still catch up and chat about funny things. And Mr Mun!!! He’s the best teacher anyone can ask for honestly. But everything I want to thank him for is mentioned in last year’s gratitude post so yea.

Elsie/Liyun & Lycia (1st from right):
Haven’t caught up with them a lot lately. But nonetheless they’re always there to support us and I’m thankful for that! I love them because they’ve always been so encouraging and nice about everything.

(3rd from left) – Shi Hui:
Been talking to her the most, really. She’s retarded as always but I always love talking to her because she’s so happy it influences me HAHA. We study together when we can find the time (rarely) on Saturdays but sometimes even though the study date don’t really work out it’s nice to study with her when it does work out! She knows a lot of things that are ongoing in my life and somehow I’m thankful for her presence because she keeps me sane sometimes from all the pressure in JC.

(3rd from right) – Sandra:
My crazy laughing buddy!! She’s so nice to have around I really love her. There were a lot of negative news coming from her at the starting of the year but I realised that I have to be supportive of her just because I am her friend!!!! I felt so guilty afterwards. I didn’t tell her all of this and if you’re reading this I’m sorry to have believed those things 😦 BUT anyway! She’s been nothing but nice & encouraging and although we’ve drifted apart she will be close to my heart hehe. We need to have more study dates!!

(2nd from right) – Yu Qie:
My fun friend??? HAHAHA used to hang out with her a lot and miss the times that we used to! I like how serious she gets when she’s studying and I like studying with her because of that. Thankful for her existence because I can always talk about anything & everything with her and feel comfortable with it. Wouldn’t have been able to survive last year without her craziness and glad to still be meeting up for study sessions this year.

Joy (not here):
The mama of the group as well as the class! She’s organised and she kept most of the class matters in place last year and I’m so thankful for that. She’s funny and so down-to-earth it’s really nice to have her around. She’s one of the most selfless people I’ve met and tbh I treat her as my role model in certain aspects.

NHSJAB Squad 43’10:
SO SO thankful to have met all of you guys in sec 1 and I was totally not appreciative of you guys but then I discovered how retarded all of us can be. It’s really nice to have met you guys during mid-autumn!! Great reliving those moments when we are just crazy childish all the damn time HAHA. I really appreciate all of you guys (even though about half the squad is not here hahaha)

Especially Rei (2nd from left)!!!
Thank you for having been my classmate for 2 year and squadmate for 4 years!! Even though I’m the one tolerating you most of the time, you still rock. HAHAH he can always always make me laugh no matter what’s the situation and he’s always there for his friends no matter what. Although we’ve drifted apart, I hope we can always continue to talk like old friends!!! He’s one amazing person, seriously.

Also, Kelly (2nd from right)!
HAHA babe has been my husband for how many years and still faithful (hopefully). I haven’t been catching up with her a lot throughout the year but I’m so glad that we never ever run out of topics when we see each other and catch up. I appreciate her so much for being so lovely and not changing!!! 

Last minute addition because you guys are so damn lovely. I can’t believe I took my last group photo of the year with you guys. Can’t thank you guys enough for being so damn fantastical & superb!!! Love hanging out with y’all and even though yesterday was a tad bit awkward at the start, it was fun. You guys made 2012 & 2013 amazing & memorable for me. I still think of some antics we did/had last year and smile to myself HAHAHA.

To Lucinda (whose face is half covered here):
She’s such an amazing friend even though you went to Australia!!!! I’m honestly glad we got close last year (somehow). She’s always so genuine and lovely and cool HAHA. I appreciate her efforts in keeping in contact with her friends because when she’s miles away I kinda miss her sometimes. Not just the distance, but also HER y’know.

That’s it for the people who’ve helped me so much this year. Thank you guys for existing in my life and oh my gosh, thank you all for even existing. I can’t stress how thankful I am to all the people I’ve met this year and if I’ve talked to you personally and you’re here, you’re very important in my life. If you’re not here it doesn’t mean that you are not important! All my friends play really important roles in my life and to be honest I can’t be more thankful for all of your presence.

Of sunshine, positivity & oximoronic writing. I'm 19 years old this year. I created this blog with the intention of ranting and also to become a hipster but it has brought me nowhere. So here I am, hoping that people enjoy what I write. I never thought I would be sitting here and hoping that someone reads my blog and is actually inspired by it, but I sincerely wish that everyone who stops by will enjoy what I write, especially if it's relatable.
