I took a day off yesterday because my brain couldn’t function well enough to write a blog post. For today’s post, I posted a poll on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – asking my friends to help me decide whether today’s post would be on something light & fun, or deep & personal.
So here I am, 10-something at night, cracking my head at what to write about. So naturally, me being me, I Googled stuff. “Deep topics to write about”. A bunch of websites came up and all, all listing different topics and blog posts ideas and whatnots. I read through a couple, and found one website that had something I kind of enjoy, and felt like, okay, let’s do this. While in the back of my mind, there’s this nagging thought that says “dude you’re so going to regret writing about this“, but oh well. Here goes nothing.
When have you given up on something?
I forgot to put up a poll for today’s topic, so here’s a quick, random one that I can think of for tonight. This is inspired by so many posts on the internet where people share letters to their past self, and I thought of doing one myself too, of what I would tell my younger self if I could go back in time (to 8 years ago, to be specific)
(oh crap now you know my age).
This is 16-yo me, who had just recently discovered the joy of smiling with her teeth showing. And yes, she was wearing braces at that time.
This post is dedicated to my fellow juniors who will be graduating soon (in a few months), as well as to anyone out there who have just recently graduated (congratulations, by the way!), who will be graduating soon (woohoo, you’re almost there!) and to anyone who’s probably planning on what they need / want to do after graduating from college / university.

Today, Facebook decided to remind me of a major decision that I made four years ago that pretty much changed everything that I experienced for the past four years.
Four years ago, on this day, I decided to go with my guts.
Four years ago, I quit my A-Levels at KTJ and started over in ADFP at INTEC.
Four years ago, I made the decision to abandon my dreams and start over fresh.
