My Year In Review

(I apologize in advance for the crappy editing, I'm too lazy to make a nicer one)

I found this tag on Catalina's blog, and it's actually titled "Your Year In Review" but my brain processed it as "My Year In Review" *facepalm* So here it is :)

Your 2014

1.What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about?
- Umm, I don't know. Graduation? :D #andmeetingsomanyawesomepeople #senioryear And how much I enjoyed high school (of course I'd lie a little, and pretend I was a saint. HAHA. Yeah..they ain't gonna believe that)

2.If you had to describe your 2014 in 3 words, what would they be?
- Memorable, challenging, exciting.

3.What new things did you discover about yourself?
- I discovered that I feel bad when people do nice things for me because I don't deserve it. #loveyouguysbtw. I'm emotionally unstable. I care too much and I care too little. I find it hard to show people who I really am. I don't like attention from people who only like me for who they expect me to be. I'm not as anti-social as I thought I was.

4.What single achievement are you most proud of?
- I can't really think of any.. Ermm, getting good results for English throughout my schooling life? I guess.

5.What was the best news you received?

6.What was your favourite place that you visited in 2014?
- Avillion, Port Dickson. Because I love the beaccchhhhhhh.

- My determination when it comes to cleaning and organizing. #houseisprettycleanrightnow

8.Who was your number one go-to person that you could always rely on?

- I've been working on my computer skills. This year, I learned a lot from ICT classes. Programming, managing a database and interactive multimedia.

- A comedy. So many hilarious things happened this year.

12.What was the most important lesson(s) you learnt in 2014?
- Friendships doesn't last forever. But even if someone leaves your life, it doesn't mean that he/she isn't your friend anymore.
- You shouldn't get into a relationship just for the sake of having one
 (Actually I've known this for years, but what happened this year just reaffirmed my opinion)
- Hugs really do make me feel better when I'm sad.

13.Which mental block(s) did you overcome?

17.What book or movie affected your life in a profound way?
