Hello 2017, Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

Aaaah… the end has finally arrived. We can finally say goodbye to 2016 and move on to a new chapter in our lives. While a lot of bad things happened in the past year, there were also good things.

For one, I met great people who became my very good friends. We have similar interests, totally opposite personalities, but we can talk about all sorts of things and enjoy each other’s company. I may not have traveled as often as I wanted to, but I got to go out-of-town a few times.

Find out who your real friends are and stick with them thru thick and thin. . Spent one of the best days of my life and first hike of the year with these awesome ladies. We went through a mountain tagged an "easy climb" / good for beginners, it was anything but. We experienced going through cave-like rocks, trekked a slippery, muddy trail, and climbed rockies with sharp edges to reach the summit. We also had enough time to trek to the waterfalls for a quick swim before it went dark. We were sweaty, dirty, and dead-tired. What an experience! Time well spent with these girls. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– #FriendshipGoals #NickleTravels. . . . . . #travel #travelph #wanderlust #fliptripph #teamfliptrip #mtsipitulang #rodriguezrizal #ninjasquad #lostgirls #fernweh #eternalhobbyist #wanderlustph #itsmorefuninthephilippines #chooseph #travelphilippines #choosephilippines #exploreph #explorephilippines

I may not have traveled as often as I wanted to, but I got to go out-of-town a few times.

I learned a new skill! I finally got myself into modern calligraphy and also learned how to use a bullet journal. Yep. I’m not that good at either yet but I’m planning on improving my skill this year.


I also started playing Guild Wars 2. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s something I enjoy and takes the stress off. The graphics are AMAZING!

Oh, I also bought my first home appliance, a fridge!

As for the rest of the world, well, I’m sure a lot of great things happened too. It’s just sometimes people focus on the negative stuff.

For 2017, I want to focus on the positive and not stress myself over things I have no control over. I want to read more and learn another new skill. I had a lot of realization last year and some of the changes I need have to take effect this year, like saving up. Heh.

So how did I celebrate the coming of the new year? I just stayed at home. I worked on my 2017 bullet journal this afternoon and then played Guild Wars 2 for two hours. I also had 4 hours of work to finish, I only did 3. LOL. Played GW2 again before remembering IΒ wanted to read The Master List of 2017 Reading Challenges. I also ate 5 servings of mom’s sopasΒ (not in one seating). Oh, I did all this while binge watching 30 Rock on iFlix. I’m now on season 5. He-yo!

2017 is going to be all about doing the things I enjoy and love.

"Do more of what makes you happy." Appropriate for the new year. πŸ’–
