[2017] Happy New Year!

In Everyday, Fun, Life, Personal on January 1, 2017 by lexie-chan Tagged: , , , ,

14 years ago, I started my online blogging. It’s been almost 7 years since I stopped blogging on easyjournal (I continued my blogging stint here on WordPress because I love blogging too much to actually stop), not because I didn’t like the site anymore but it’s just, it wasn’t able to sustain itself anymore and just shut itself down. It still makes me sad sometimes coz it has been my longtime goal to print all my journal entries from back then and compile it as a book. Wouldn’t it be nice to look back on your life retold by your old self? I’ve always been honest and open in all of my  entries so that would’ve been awesome :3

In any case, 2016 has come and gone. 

It felt so quick how the previous year just came to its ultimate end. Although 2016 shared its own tragic stories, personally, 2016 has been kind to me. 

So many wonderful things happened. We had the blessing of our house, met with my bestfriends Krys and TinTin, April’s visit, our family Florida trip, my trip to Canada with Kim and Renz and meeting all of our other college friends, having a second family at Artistic Dental Lab, adventures with Ray, my new car and everything in between. 

I guess besides my unfortunate accident last Sept 2016 and the unexpected end of a friendship I shared with Kathleen for almost 20 years because of something trivial, everything else was a blessing. 

In a few days, I’ll be celebrating my first anniversary with Ray and my Dirty Thirty. Haha!

I didn’t expect that I’ll even maintain a decent relationship with anybody, ever at all. Ray came out of nowhere. I didn’t have any expectations when it comes to him and truthfully, I didn’t really like like him at first until one day, I started having these unexplainable feelings inside. Like, he says things, sometimes so random and simple, that just makes me feel so fluffy inside. I enjoy talking about him with my friends and then brag a little bit about him. There are times that I really miss him too and stuff. 

It’s so weird.

Having this kind of feeling and isactually  reciprocated. Haha! He’s definitely one of the biggest blessings I’ve ever gotten ever. I know he’s not perfect and there are still things that I hope he can improve but truthfully, I couldn’t have asked for a better boyfriend like him. Haha!

He always tells me I’m not sweet and I admit, I’m not the most affectionate person ever but in my heart, I know that I really like him and I wouldn’t and couldn’t find anybody else who can really complement me the way he complements me. Haha!

But enough cheese, on to the next year! 

Happy 2017 to everyone!
