It has been a rollercoaster ride for me: My Year End Review

December 30, 2014 Leave a comment

It has been a rollercoaster ride for my year 2014. I had New Year in Bunbury and starting 2015 here in Melbourne. There were lots of changes. Good and bad memories.  So let me have my year end post.

“Madaming nagbabago. Pero may mga bagay parin na hindi na magbabago.” – lourd de veyra, Rakista narrator

DID YOU HAD A NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION?

I don’t usually have a New Year’s resolution. Anytime of the year things just happen. Change!

WHAT DID YOU DISCOVER IN YOURSELF DURING 2014?

I had discovered certain things/stuff that I didn’t know I had it in me all along..

╚ I am a totally different person now than before. I used to be a cry baby (still am at times) but I learned how to face challenges, failures and stress on my own ever since I moved here.
╚ It’s okay to feel hurt and lonely. What matters is that I learn how to accept things.
╚ I am capable of showing a person how much I love him. 🙂

WHAT DID YOU DO THAT YOU LIKED IN 2014?
• out of town trip with friends. First time I was allowed to travel with my friends.
• going back to Australia and going back to Uni. Met a lot of new people.
• learning how to priorities stuff.
• saving for my Uni.
• taking risks
• Loving someone unconditionally. ❤

DATES THAT YOU LIKELY TO REMEMBER IN 2014:

Actually I couldn’t remember most of the dates by now but most of them were when I went back in the Philippines and spent time with my family. My out of trip in Zambales (Birthday trip) and Ilocos trip (around June 12 I guess).

Then when I came here in Melbourne starting from July 17 (arrival). Then most of my time with my friends. and most especially times with my significant other from his trip to the Philippines to us officially going out to Italy ’til present 🙂 .

WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU REGRET DOING/HAVING?
♦ reading my last year’s review I saw one thing I regret doing. For 2014, I was better on taking things that’s why I have no regrets this year. Yes I learned my lesson.

WHAT THINGS WERE YOUR “FIRST TIME”?

There’s a lot of “first time” for me here in Melbourne. Since I came here I had told people that I haven’t felt this happy since I can’t remember. The feeling of being alive is what makes me happy. So much things to do here. So many people to meet. As well as new discoveries and adventures with my S.O. 🙂

WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU WANT TO LEAVE BEHIND IN 2014?

○ hatred
○ sad moments
○ bad experiences
○ past relationships

WHAT WILL YOU MISS IN 2014?
♦ as what I said, i had a rollercoaster year so I might not miss anything from it.. hehe

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR 2015?
After reading my last year’s review, I noticed that everytime I set a plan for myself, I tend to achieve it sooner than expected. Nothing much planned for this year i think. With my life right now, I couldn’t ask for more. or maybe some.. hehe

♥ travel
♥ get license and start driving soon
♥ be more healthy
♥ save more!!!
♥ do more arts and crafts
♥ move to another house/ apartment
♥ stay happy and inlove. hehe

♥TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS: thanks. sorry. i love you!
♥TO GOD: thanks for everything.. may you bless us all..

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.. GOD BLESS

Happy Nostalgic Christmas

December 25, 2014 Leave a comment

Sorry if I hadn’t posted anything for my blog’s anniversary last December 20. To make it up to my readers, I am posting this blog on Christmas day.

Today, everyone is either staying at home with their family while others spend it away from home, thus, me spending it here in Melbourne. It is my second year of Christmas away from home. It’s my first time spending it with a S.O. Most of the time I just stay at home with my family and relatives just come over our house to celebrate.

Three years ago, I started an oil painting, Christmas themed. But the sad truth was that I didn’t get to finish it, not even half of it. Since I started doing my art again here, I will try to recreate that unfinished master piece in watercolor. I haven’t tried doing something on my own again, meaning without me copying others’ work. I tried once but I just failed ’cause I couldn’t do it in Oil Paint. Anyway, I feel inspired into doing another painting soon.

I’m celebrating my Christmas with my boyfriend and his family. I remembered my first stay here, we were just friends back then but his dad even told me to spend this day with them. Spending it away from home makes me feel homesick of course. He (bf) said to me all he can do is stay with me this day just to fill up that empty space. His family is my family here. He is my family. 🙂 I’ve been waiting for so long to feel this way. It is my first time to feel this kind of love, unconditional love. Yes I am a spoiled girlfriend, he gave me lots of love (and gifts). hehehee.. ^_^

Christmas day is one day where you feel happy and sad at the same time. You feel joyful and festive with everyone, but feel nostalgic about things. I do. I still remembered that year where Christmas was spent differently. Two years ago is one of the best Christmas that our family had. My cousins from other countries went home and all came to spend it with us. It is my first time seeing our family so happy on Christmas day. I didn’t know that it’ll happen that year. it was my last Christmas with them and I’m glad that we spent it so joyful. Oh well, I just miss them.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.

Regards,

Hannah 🙂

After awhile, I’ve been doing some projects and stuff

December 17, 2014 Leave a comment

Yes yes. I think this is the first time that I became keen on doing a lot of artworks. From drawing to painting as well as building model kits. Well, like they said, I’m inspired. hihi.

After almost a month since my last post, I had finished The Walking Dead Season 1-4.

Since I still have no watercolor, I decided to give my boyfriend something he would like/love. A drawing of his long time crush.

A week ago, I bought my work table from Ikea . That night, I built my very first Model Kit which my boyfriend gave me,  Darth Vader.

The next day, I bought a watercolor set and brushes. So that night I finished my surprise painting for him. I copied one of his photos when he went to Italy.

Then when I visited him, I needed to do something while he sleeps. He gave me his Bear-guy Gunpla Kit.

Other guys give stuffed bear. My guy gave me a Bear-guy Gunpla Kit.  So Kawaii!!! ^_^

I still have lots of projects to do. I haven’t listed them ,yet I am sure that I am more keen to start those soon. I have another kit here that I will start building as soon as I feel inspired and less tired from work.

Oh, and I’ve seen a portable electric organ/ keyboard. I want it soon. Still thinking if I’m going to get it cause I really want to have one soon so I can start learning how to play the piano and make melodies for my poems. 🙂 I’ll keep you posted here. But if I’m M.I.A. here, I’m just hanging around Instagram or Twitter.
