18 THINGS I LEARNED AT 18 | PART 1

Although I already turned 18 on early October (which is last year), I believe it’s still not too late to share these things that I discovered/learned as I grow up. I’m aware that most would preferably watch it over a video or something else but since I don’t have a Youtube, this is a great alternative in my opinion. By writing things down, I felt that it is more sincere and genuine.

Apparently, this gonna be a long list so grab your tea/coffee/whatever and enjoy reading!

*Note: All the things mentioned are not in any particular order

  1. Value family more than friends

Some may agree and others don’t. I mean, who are always there when you need them? The ones who offer the greatest life support, whether it be during hardships or achievements? I believe it’s none other than your own family. In my case, I grew up in a loving 5 members of a family and no words can describe how thankful I am to be a part of it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends too (they’re wonderful as well) but it always has been family > friends for me.

LIFE UPDATE

Apologies for not updating regularly. As expected, life as a student is getting tougher now that I’m in a sixth form. Other than that, life has been… dull? I’m not sure if that’s even the right word to describe it but yeah, couldn’t help but to think of it that way.

Anyhow, I’m writing tonight as I’m feeling slightly sentimental about literally everything. School has been undeniably tough, coping is alright but exceeding people’s expectations has never been my forte. We recently had our first ever progress test and my emotion has been unstable ever since. Although my result is considerably average or ‘need to work even harder’ as what my tutors interpreted, honestly speaking, I’m somewhat content? that I at least PASSED the test. It’s my first big test anyway so I hope that my tutors will continue to remain optimistic and have faith on my progression  🙂

Since we’re only recommended to take 3 A’level subjects, I’m taking Maths, Geography and Psychology. By far, my favourite subject would be Psychology because it’s getting more and more intriguing. To some extent, curiosity does kill the cat, though.

On a happier note, I GOT AN A FOR MY GP!!! I’m beyond ecstatic as it’s my first essay since O’level. I also found out that I’m the only one in my class that gets an A and my tutor wasn’t expecting the person to be me. When I knew about this a few days ago, I couldn’t help but to feel accomplished as I’ve been so competitive when it comes to English. The satisfaction I get was indescribable.

It’s currently 10:10 PM the moment I typed this, so I better get to bed ASAP and replenished before school tomorrow. Thank you for spending a bit of your time in reading this although the content is sort of lacking. I’ll try to be better next time. Until then, please have a good day/night, reader.

Much love, A.

FIRST POST

Welcome to my blog! This is my first time using WordPress and I am still a beginner so please excuse me for the minimal layout. I can assure you that it will get better as time goes by.

The reason why I am starting this blog is to nurture my passion in writing, which is one of my guilty pleasures. It is also a way for me to cope the rollercoaster ride of life by writing my inner thoughts or simply my personal instances. The posts in this blog will be random and there is no  such thing as scheduled posts as I will only update to my heart’s content.

This blog is a great opportunity to express my raw emotions towards the bittersweet reality I have experienced. Being an introvert, I hardly get to convey my real thoughts as I felt that no one can understand me better than my own self. I have been bottling up everything for a long time now and the piles of hidden emotion is endless. As what they said, there must be a limit to it and I have reached it which leads to the existence of this blog. Thus, this blog is meant to be there, regardless of place and time.

I honestly have nothing more to say so I am going to end this post with a cliche quote:

“Here is to a new beginning of a chapter!”

Much love, A.
