Remember this tweet, Sheena?
Tweeted January 2, 2014, it’s obviously a year starter thought. I remember feeling confident for some reason that something IS going to change in my life. Of course, at that time, I had no idea what it will be.
I can say ever since I turned 18 (2011), a lot of big turns happened in my life. I experienced a lot of “firsts” and with that lessons. At the age of 19 (2012), I entered the so called “society”. I’m now making a living, like an “adult” is expected to do.
My way of thinking changed. Not entirely, but I started looking into the future more. Year 2013 came, I realized a lot of things. I can’t be the same person I opted to be. I need to grow stronger - mentally. Life just hit me hard with what reality really is. It’s not child’s play anymore. I got the pieces but what exactly is it for? What was I preparing for?
"Finally, 2014. I don’t know what to expect specifically for this year. I just know after those stages I’ve been to in life, I know something is bound to happen."
Says the Me from January.
Eight months later, I realized I was already in the middle of a new chapter. A chapter I never expected. Looking back, I should have seen this development but I didn’t. I don’t know exactly what I was thinking before, but I do know I decided to take actions myself too. With that, the story progressed. "I don’t know about you.. but I’m excited."

Grand Forks, North Dakota, USA
September 20 - 21, 2014
It has been more than a year since we last went to Grand Forks. It was only an overnight stay but it was worth it. Getting to spend quality time with your family is really the best.
First part was quite a creepy trip. We started our journey 6:00am. It was still dark. Once we got out of the city, fog became worse. Again, it was dark and now really foggy. Not to mention there are no street lights in a 110km/hr speed limit highway. I wasn’t nervous or anything that we will get into an accident. I’m actually more scared of how my brain can produce a sixty-minute thriller movie in a matter of minutes.
Fast forward to 3 hours… (and a washroom break at the US Border), we’re now at Grand Forks. We actually had a LOT of “detours”. I’ll just say it may be because I was holding the GPS.
Brunch at Denny’s since IHOP was full and we were really hungry, Shopping, Hotel Check-in, Shopping, Dinner at Sakura Steakhouse to celebrate our parents’ wedding anniversary then back to the hotel. We planned to go night swimming, but a lot of people were there, so never mind. Next day was my Dad’s birthday. That equals more shopping. I spent more than I should have, I’ll leave it at that.
With the car full, we headed back home. There’s no place like home as they say. We all just wanted to relax once we entered our humble abode. But we can’t, not right away. The unpacking was kinda hard yet exciting. Afterall, the things that we only need to “unpack” were the things that we shopped for.
I was most excited about my new Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards. HAHA! And all the white chocolates I bought. After having dinner at our house and some story-telling, we watched a movie together and went to bed. “Good night!”
I want your love, joy, peace, patience way down in my soul and kindness, goodness, faithful, gentle, self-control. 🎶
Page 0 : The Introduction
Year 2008, I first started a blog at multiply.com. I can’t really say writing is a real forte of mine but I do find my words to be better when I type than when I speak.
First off, I’m the lazy type. I can’t keep a a daily journal. I lose motivation fast to do so. No matter how pretty the notebook for me write on, nor how nice the pen is for me to write with, I just lose my so called dedication for it.
Where exactly am I getting at with this? I don’t know. And that perfectly describes how this blog will really be…
… Random Thoughts in Random Events during Random Times with Random Interests.
Before we met, the world said I was dreaming.
-Haven’t Even Kissed (Song)
… be sure to grow stronger.
When I say what’s truly on mind, no matter how mean it sounds, take it as a compliment.
I assure you, I meant it as a compliment. I’m just bad with words.

I may not always say the best words..
I may not always have the best words..
.. but my actions will always speak more words.
