For the 1st time in many years, I actually wrote down a resolution for 2017. I hope I can achieve 3 out of the 7 I wrote. Initially I came up with only 5 but since 2017 ends with 7, I aimed for 7 resolutions instead.
2016 has been a roller coaster ride. I think it is my ‘adult’ phase life. There is no rule book on how to be an Adult and everything is up to me to decide and figure out. I think a lot of us are unsure of what we should do at this stage of life.
It is so scary, really. I want to treat my life like an RPG game, something I grow up and is familiar with. You know how in every RPG game, you have a mission to complete and destination to go to? I aim my life to be like this. If I set a goal, I will try to go for it without a walk through guide or cheat code.
There is always a lot of worries and I wasn’t sure which path to go to. If I go for this, will I regret? If I didn’t go for that, will I enjoy? I experienced a short period of slump after graduation, maybe because I was comparing my life with others’ and you see how other people live their life so happily and with so much content. Then again, it is all social media and I don’t know what is going through their life. Everyone has problems and I believe it depends on how one deals with the problem. Social media is just an illusion that everything is mostly fine, when sometimes, it isn’t and I shouldn’t be feeling so bad about myself when other people had accomplished so much.
I already have this idea that for 2017, I won’t be posting so much about myself on social media. I still have this backward idea that people should communicate by phone, or writing letters or visiting each others’ house/room for tea/hangout. I guess I do this to save money when I’m underpaid because of the shitty economy we are in. I am sick and tired of some of the things in life that I wished things are better.
Anyways, thank you 2016 for my graduation, my job, Utada Hikaru’s comeback, new anime to go fangirl about and family and friends. Until then, take care and God bless.
