Before the new year comes to welcome me, I’d like to be able to look back at 2010 wholly and round up everything significant that has happened. Hopefully I’ll be able to do this every year, and it would compile to be like annual reports of personal progress and life highlights.

Things that happened this year (not in any particular order since my memory’s ability doesn’t stretch that far):
-Got published in Chalk Magazine as one of the girls for its Fashion Chalk Walk

-Facebook less

-Dress up more often (not really necessary but it would be nice)

My dad’s constantly calling me out to play with sparklers now. Once again I will be staying in a corner watching him with much worry while he lights up the Judas’ Belt.

Ugh, I love fireworks but I cringe at the sight of people I love playing with them.

So tata, hope everyone has a happy new year! God bless. :)
