Resolutions

I almost never make new year’s resolutions, that’s probably why I never get shit done. So, this year, I decided to make a list and see if I’ll be more efficient and less procrastinating.

Between Flowers & Scales :

The first thing I want to do is incorporate more music reviews, articles about art and sharing things I like.

 

I want to hopefully be able to upgrade my website by the end of the year.

 

I would love to design some merch, I’ve been thinking about it for a while.

 

Personal goals :

  • Yoga & Calisthenics :

I already started both these sports, but I hope to become more physically capable and flexible through practice and with consistency.

 

  • Drawing :

This has been an on-going battle for almost three years now. I grew distant from what was once a true passion of mine, and I’ve been trying to get back to it. Although I’m beginning to lose hope.

 

  • Get back to learning Korean :

Now that I officially passed the TOPIK I test, I need to continue studying the language and become fluent.

 

  • Start a series or a K-drama :

I’m not a big movie or series person #TeamYoutube. So I want to try becoming one. The last K-drama I watched was probably 2 years ago.

 

  • Let my hair grow :

The last time I had long hair ? 4 years ago. At this point, I can’t even remember how I used to look like. Time to let it grow again.

 

  • Get rid of my glasses :

Anyone who knows me knows I can’t see shit, that’s why I’ve been wearing glasses my whole life. But now, I just got too used to them that I’m starting to get annoyed. #GlassesGoodbyeParty2k19 ?

My 2018

Yet another year passes, 2018 was a tough one.

I feel like I haven’t done much. I was going back and forth whether or not to write anything at all, but I thought it would be unfair.

 

I’m mostly proud that I put enough time and effort on this blog. I noticed that more people enjoyed the content and I’m humbled by the encouragement and the nice words. Although, it’s been going downhill these months, but whatever. Between Flowers And Scales had a great year, thanks to all of you.

I honestly feel like I became more outgoing and social this year in particular. I made myself more comfortable. I got involved in a lot of events and got out of my little safety bubble. I also took initiative and made things happen.

 

This year I learnt that you have the ability to control how you feel, and it’s fucking hard. I experienced many breakdowns. Sometimes, I had someone to lay my head on. But, most of the time, it was me alone against myself. Let’s say that I learnt to see the bigger picture, like the really reaaaally bigger picture. Sometimes, you just gotta ignore some small things and put them to the side.

 

My first time visiting the desert was in itself a rollercoaster of emotions. Riding camels and watching the rose gold sunset was definitely worth the long hours of the road.

As I think about it, I got to visit somewhere far and new from what I’m used to. But I also got to discover my home city like a tourist. I was able to fall in love yet again.

 

2018 was a year of change and first times. I’ve experience many things for the first time. I felt new feelings for the first time. I’ve done what I never imagined I’d do. I fell and got up. I was vulnerable and showed my scars. I was accepted for the first time.

I loved, and I was loved for the first time.

2018 was definitely a year that taught me a lot, now I have less excuses for 2019.
I hope I make it through 2019 alive.
nah, fuck it.
I'm gonna make it against all odds.
