The Mid Year Review

The next thing we will all know is it's already December, lives have gotten richer, days have passed and things may have gotten, hopefully, better. 

I'm full with so much positivity, despite me typing this during my quick break at work. At work, I have this small corner at our pantry where I get to look at an expanse of greenery {and well, white crosses, since it's the American cemetery} but nonetheless, I am happy to be looking at lush greens. I'm happy to be in solitude, with my music, my digital art, my craft. I think about the days ahead of me and I am just so, so happy.

Dog Days Are Over | Florence and the Machine

  1. I learned how to really, competitively swim. I will never forget my quarter life crisis list and a comment of someone I used to see before, "You're a catch, except in sports." I think of those which I can't do and that comment every time I jump into the water or kick a ball in soccer. That technique always works.
  2. I'm back to being a morning person. My still new work requires me to be at the office between 8 and 8:30 --- which means I have to be up at 5:30 AM so I don't have to rush out. This also means that I need to be asleep by 10 PM, and night rituals to be starting at 9 PM.
  3. This year, I've developed a new and profound understanding and appreciation for art. Don't ask me why, I don't know too.
  4. I am a fully functional responsible adult. I suppose that is a good thing.
  5. I had my hair cut to short lengths that induced questions like "Did you break up with someone?" No, I didn't. 
  6. Somebody has fully kicked the c habit down the curb. For a long time now, too.
  7. I've always enjoyed my company, but this year, I realized that even more. I think I'd rather be alone than endure a company I don't like.
  8. This year, I learned the value of discipline, creativity and rigor. And the value of not backing down when it comes to my non-negotiables.
  9. I made new friends, and lost some old ones. Guess that one's kind of inevitable.
  10. In the beginning of the year, I had a strategy for myself and for my life. Happy to report it's on track, on schedule.
