Dear June 2014

Dear June,

You have:

  • taught me how well I could work if I did not take the stress of deadlines. Deadlines are in the future, the only wise thing I can do right now is to give my best and not worry about the final outcome.
  • changed constantly. Although daunting to start with, it has been fun to see that I did well in adapting to the changes.
  • pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me how to enjoy the discomfort.
  • reminded me constantly that “whenever you feel like quitting, think about why you started”. Whoever said/wrote this quote, thank you.
  • made me feel grateful for what I have today. I can’t help comparing today with what I was doing and where I was this time last year and every time I do that, I feel ever so thankful for the relentless nature of time to keep moving.
  • given me the opportunity and ability to evaluate a potential business idea. It doesn’t matter that it did not materialise, I’m just glad that I tried and almost took it up. The mere exciting thought of ‘this could probably be my very first business’ was well worth the try. I now know more than ever that I want to have a business of my own one day. This is my happy corner for this post. (Happy Corner #6; What is Happy Corner? Read this)
  • given me happy times with family. I love them more everyday.
  • introduced me to ‘Star Wars’. Yes, I haven’t seen star wars until very recently. But now that I started watching the series, I can’t wait to see parts 4, 5 and 6. So far, my favourite characters are Obi-Wan Kenobi, Master Yoda and Padme.
  • also shown me movies like Godzilla (2014, of course) and Edge of Tomorrow. My rating? Godzilla: a waste of 123 minutes of my life, there is no need to spend 123 minutes to figure that out. Just don’t see it. Edge of Tomorrow: Clever. Actually, I think I want to say that it is me who is clever because I understood the movie in my first attempt. That said, the movie was indeed engaging, had a bit of humour and well, it was in 3D 🙂 So yes, go see it.
  • made me feel nostalgic about Edinburgh. We were this close to travelling to Edinburgh in July but it did not go according to plan. Edinburgh, I miss you so much but there’s a time for everything and I know I will come see you again one day.
  • got me addicted to 11 pm rides to have ice cream. Yay to summer 🙂
  • talked me into getting back to doing yoga regularly. Well thank you for my sore legs!
  • motivated me to finish my first painting on a tee. Not my best work but I like it. I did not wear it yet so I don’t know with certainty whether it is street friendly.
  • almost made me give up on Candy Crush. But alas the addiction is back. I’m not proud of it.
  • made me realise that I’m one of the biggest procrastinators/lazy bugs and should have written a post many days earlier.
  • almost come to an end and that is going to mark half year 2014. Half year! Is it just me or is the earth revolving 10 times faster these days?
