2016 has been an easy year.
I have just continued to stay in my comfort zone at my current workplace, and go out (almost) weekly with my friends. See my boyfriend a few times a week, and continue the routine that I built in 2015.
I continued to work full time at my current work place and continued to learn more and become a better team member. I think my boss really appreciates me as an employee and that makes me feel good. I really like working here, and I like that I am still learning more and more each day. Fellow employees are also nice, but I can see how there are differences of how people work - and realising that I am more dedicated and willing to sacrifice more for my work than others makes me feel good about myself.
But now next year I am going to stop being a full time worker and go back to school. I am going to study Optometry and I will be moving far away from my friends and family (albeit still in the same state). I am scared and nervous but also excited and hope that I can do well and hope that I can keep up and study hard.
I need to study hard.
My relationship with D is still going well. We still fight like cats and dogs some days but overall I love that he is (almost) always there for me, we have similar values and thoughts, and we communicate well. He is patient, kind and understanding - contrasting to my impatient, violent, and moody self. I am continuing to try my best to be someone that deserves him (although it's hard because most of the time I don't try hard enough). I am glad that our relationship is calm most of the time. He is becoming more and more busy during the end of the year due to work, and I understand that in our line of work this is how it is. We have both been drained after work most days.
Hope 2017 will be awesome for us. I know he will always be supporting me.
Going overseas to Japan, Taiwan, Singapore was one of the highlights. We got to explore so much - I got to go to most places that I wanted to go in Japan. Taiwan was amazing and I'm so glad we had a driver. D continues to be the best boyfriend and take care of me, and take charge of situations because I am shy and quiet. I love travelling with him.
We are planning to go to Korea in 2017 - yes I know.. again :) I hope that we can explore all different areas and try different things and explore.
My family continues to be amazing to me. My mum wakes up early to prepare me breakfast and lunch still because I continue to be a lazy daughter who wakes up at the last minute. I don't really see my dad much but I know he does his best for the family and as I grow older I become more understanding of his actions and words. I try not to be feisty and negative towards my family much. My sister Y is still one of my best friends. Vicky is growing up quickly and becoming more and more grown up each day. I am happy.
It's going to be so different in 2017 living away from home most of the time. I hope that I can still have a good relationship with my parents and of course my sisters.
Of course my friends are still as great as ever. Although I understand that not everyone can be available for every dinner, get together or hang out date I hope that everyone will make more of an effort. I am glad that I have two or three friends who always put their best into coming to events and who value our friendship as I do. Nonetheless I am grateful for all my friends and I know that it is not always convenient or possible to be there all the time.
In 2017 I hope that I will still be able to maintain my friendships when I come down on the weekend.
2016 has been good, and I hope 2017 will be good to me too - especially with my world completely changing. I hope I do well in school, make friends, keep friends, continue to do well at work, and have a happy relationship with my friends, family, and of course d :)
