looking back on 2013


i chose not to answer all the questions. 

  

1:What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?

go up in front of an audience and sing. i was always part of the school choir but this year at the yis live concert, i sang as the main singer for an acapella group covering taylor swift's "i knew you were trouble". 

  • 2:Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
  • i didnt make any new years resolution except "lose weight" but that's every year's resolution. 
  • 3:Did anyone close to you give birth?
  • no
  • 4:Did anyone close to you die?
  • my grandfather in january. the next day in school we had chinese class and we were learning about family members and how to say grandpa in mandarin and i ran out of the room crying. i went to his funeral and i had a video camera in my hand and i video taped everything down to the last moment when they laid the last brick down with mortar. that was when i knew that this would be a bad year. 
  • 5:What countries did you visit?
  • i visited thailand, singapore and korea. in february i went to chiang mai and that was the first time ive been to thailand outside of the suvarnabhumi airport. i went with my class as the www and i love love loved the trip. i learnt that i loved elephants and learnt alot more about people in general. in the summer i went to singapore and then in november i went to seoul for the mun conference with the mun people from my school. when i went to seoul for mun i noticed that this is the competition i have to go against for college and that i am way behind and i need to catch up. a few days ago i just came back from phuket and everything was so perfect. the water was so clear the air so fresh the sky so blue and everything was beautiful. 
  • 6:What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013
  • determination. 2013 was a bad year in general for getting things done. i was lazy. i was bored and i was sleepy all the time. 
  • 9:What was your biggest failure?
  • school. i failed to pay more attention in school. 
  • 11:What was the best thing you bought?
  • two pairs of shoes. one is a pair of boots with spikes and another is a pair of creepers. 
  • 12:Whose behaviour merited celebration?
  • a friend who i didnt talk to for 2 years and i are now good friends again. i'm glad he was able to push aside our differences and his behavior merits celebration.
  • 13:Whose behaviour made you appalled?
  • a girl in my class who has always shocked me with her childish immaturity. 
  • 14:Where did most of your money go?
  • shoes.
  • 15:What did you get really, really, really excited about?

  • 16:What song will always remind you of 2013?
  • fkin problems - a$ap rocky
  • 17:Compared to this time last year, are you: (a) happier or sadder? (b) thinner or fatter? (c) richer or poorer?
  • (a) sadder because life is more complicated and i understand more which means i know more and that's not always a good thing. 
  • (b) actually i got fatter because this time last year i was trying to starve myself in hopes that my weight loss will be faster. i just came back from phuket and i pigged out so much during then. 
  • (c) i dont have an income so i dont really know however my mom gives me more money to spend now than last year so i guess i am richer. 
  • 18:What do you wish you’d done more of?
  • pay more attention in school. i come from a family with a lot of expectations and i cant let them down like my brother did.
  • 19:What do you wish you’d done less of?
  • sit around idly and wait for something to happen.
  • 20:How did you spend Christmas?
  • i spent most of my christmas on airplanes and at airports on the way to phuket from myanmar
  • 21:Did you fall in love in 2013?
  • yes and i wish i didnt and i wish it didnt sound this pretentious

  • 34:Who did you miss?
  • my grandfather
  • 35:Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013.
  • its best to just act like you dont give a shit and sometimes its ok to be selfish and hurt others and stop feeling so guilty all the time and stop saying sorry. 
  • dont lie because it takes more effort to remember and make up the lies than to just tell the truth.
