Here we go again. December has finally come to its end, meaning I shall welcome the year of 2012!
To tell you the truth, I used to have those annual “Resolutions” back then. Now I’m totally over it. I prefer to list my “Best of…” instead. I mean, I know listing your resolution of the year is great tho, but now I’m more like a “present” person. Better for me to serve what I’m doing or seeing at the moment (or what I’ve done or seen) on the table, instead of serving what I wish to do or see.
I’ll keep my wish for myself, in my prayer. (No oow, don’t call me a loner. I am not! :p)
Again, talking about the upcoming 2012, It got me thinking back about these past 365 days, 48 weeks, 12 months during 2011. You know, things like college life, great songs, movies, inspiring people, friends, parents, vacation, events, love-life, etc.
After all, it is LIFE. Quoted from one of my fave movie ever- Forrest Gump :
“Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
And of course, you know how chocolate bars taste like. It could be bitter or sweet.
So is LIFE. So is my life in 2011.
There were the expected and the unexpected. Some were bitter, some were sweet.
I’m gonna ramble about my best of 2011, just for fun. Here we go…
1# Spell it with love: P-A-R-E-N-T-S
They will be on my list FOREVER.
Whenever, wherever, whatever…
They are my best of the best things. They are my backbone, my long-life supporters. Never even once they look down on me, doubting me. They always know I’ll be just fine. Thus, every time I see them, I always feel that there’s HOPE. They give me strength, and HOPE. I’m just so happy and grateful that they are still around till now. Priceless!!!
All the love in the world
I do hate and love this thing. Loving it because something has finally come to an end. New chapter is ready to begin. Hating it because it means “leaving” something behind. Apparently I enjoyed my college life, loved my mates, loved some subjects at class, etc. BUT, I personally think that graduation is an achievement, recognition, time to grow, initial door to another path.
Graduation is an end for the past yet the start of something anew.
Anw, congratulation to me!! I’m finally a pharmacist. Proud. 🙂
3# Wangsa Jelita
Though I’m still not doing much to help my friend, Nadya (and the team) growing up their baby, “The beautiful dinasty – Wangsa Jelita“, I’m just still happy to be a little part of it (and feel sorry at the same time, for not helping much). You guys should really watch how this baby will grow wholeheartedly, It is a great social enterprise with great vision and mission. I really wish my friends there (Wangsa Jelita) will do well.
4# Apoteker Bercerita
One of the best things in my life. Ever. Having chances to meet such great people like them is really a pleasure for me. They are very kind, smart, talented, such good writers, fun friends. Aah, I just love them. I might not be a good story teller and all, but I enjoy writing so much. I am happy because through writing, I am able to learn so many things.
Check us out, we’ve been writing quite many. Seriously, many of them are really really good at writing. 🙂
5# [Song] Adele – Someone like you
Epic. This song is just way too epic in my opinion.
Actually, I was kinda bored with current trend songs around. I mean, I enjoyed listen to Owl city, Maroon, Gaga, Bieber, Rihanna, indie music, etc. But the truth is, It won’t last long. In a month or so, I’ll get over them just like that. One of many reasons why my love for oldies song is huge… is that most of them are lyrically poetic, musically great in harmony. The music is just beautiful as it is, pure, not overdone, the voice won’t barely heard.
This song from Adele, didn’t really catch my ears at first. But my second, third, fourth, … hundred times listening to this, I’M IN LOVE. I am still is. I know I’m gonna love the song not only for a month, a year. It will be long. I just know. Amazing voice, great melody, the piano, aaaah. Though the lyrics are just ordinary, nothing special. But still, it’s nice.
“Never mind I’ll find someone like you. I wish nothing but the best for you…”
At least, this song, these words will be one of the top choices for the heartbroken ones to get a soundtrack for life. 😀
7# [Movie] One Day
You shall know upfront, I can count with my fingers for how much 2011 movies I’ve watched. 😀
So said, my personal off favorite movie might be your 20th rank or so.
Reasons to be my fave? Let me tell you.
It’s JIM STURGESS, the cinematography (It’s BEAUTIFUL), its unique plot. As for teh story, I love seeing the two of them growing up together. I guess, this movie is about two people who are growing up together, how they personally improved, supporting each other, BUT… it takes them 20 years to realize that they belong to each other. I mean.. really??
Fact is, this movie is based on novel. Some say that the novel is way better (Surely you can’t compare movie with novel).
For those who want to enjoy a movie that serve a -like no other- love story, unique plot, scenic cinematography, the delicate man Jim Sturgess, and all. You might want to watch this. 🙂
THOUGH, this one might not my all time fave (mine are still before sunrise, before sunset, 500 days of summer, Juno, and once), It’s still worth the watch.
8# “I’m officially an office worker“
Hi there, working hours, workdays, new colleagues.
Yes, I finally got a job. Working in such a big company is my dream… once. Moreover, willing to be able to work in a healthy food company is what I’ve babbled everywhere. So I’m happy for now. At least I believe I can learn many from here. I guess It will be hard for me to learn how to build a professional attitude in me, unless I learn from the professionals. Agreed? 😀
Professional attitude. YES. THIS.
Workdays, weekdays, office hours, WELCOME TO MY WORLD!!
I’m so excited to welcome the year of 2012.
Wondering what will come and go around in the future. Enjoying the present with so much love and positive attitude. Learning from the past years and days.
As quoted from ONE DAY movie:
“Whatever happens tomorrow, we had today.”
It goes the same with our past.
“Whatever HAPPENED in the past, we HAVE today.”
In brief: Experiencing from yesterday, Embrace today, Be prepared for tomorrow.
