I wanted to write up one last entry for 2013 while I still have time. About 30 minutes from now, so it’ll be a short one.

2013 was full of ups and downs for me, but over all it wasn’t such a bad year. I got to visit my family after not having seen them for two years, got to be there for my grandmother’s 80th birthday. I had the chance to visit Japan, again after two years, and got to see my friends and meet new people, see new places. Sure, there were a lot of disappointments and bad points this year, but the good that happened made up for those.

I think I’m ending this year happier than I was last year and I’ll do my very best to keep that feeling. That’s my only resolution. Be happier.

I hope everyone has a happy new year☆

2013 Wishes


I decided to make a wish jar for the new year rather than write out a boring list of resolutions. This way I have a pretty visual and a reminder to strive to make the wishes and goals within the stars come true.

My first day of the year has been a lazy one, but it’s my last day off, so I felt rest was more important.

I hope everyone’s first day was a good one!


Happy New Year!

Looking back, 2012 was a rough year, but it wasn’t completely terrible for me. It was more of a frustrating year than a plain bad one.

Though, it did end on a sad note for my roommate and her family with her grandmother’s passing in the early morning of New Year’s Eve. I’m trying to do what I can to help, but I’m terrible at this sort of thing, even with my own family. The good thing is that she was able to live out one more year and spend every holiday with her family and she passed away surrounded by loved ones. With that, I think she’s able to rest in peace.

I say it every year, but this year I want to make sure to update a lot. I usually get behind because of how busy my job gets and I end up too tired to do much when I come home, but this year I’m not going to let my job wear me out anymore. My focus is going to be on me this year to better myself and keep myself healthy. I don’t want to be this negative, stressed out, and unhealthy person that my job has caused me to become.

That said, here’s to making 2013 better than 2012~!
