So I’ve been 30 for eight days now and it’s not very different. I don’t know what I expected. But welp, I’ve successfully lived three decades. I guess I must be doing something right with my life.
It’s Christmas day and the year ends in a week. I guess now would be a go,od time to write down about what I’ve learnt over the past year.
2015 has been an interesting year for me. I got into a relationship. I got a new job. Resumed gigging. Wrote new tunes. Decided to pursue video games development. Completed a few online courses. Gained experience working 12+ hour shifts at the Big Bad Wolf Sale. Learnt how to deal with people. Gained new skills. And probably a whole load of other things I can’t recall for now.
It’s been trying and rewarding at the same time. I’ve discovered how smart, stupid, nice and all sorts of other objectives of how people can be. I’ve made new friends, colleagues, and bosses. Not sure if I made any new enemies but I wouldn’t cancel that out.
I’ve discovered new music. I’ve rediscovered old music. I’ve discovered new artists. Writers.
All in all, it’s been a pretty satisfying year. Not sure if it’s the best one I’ve had – I wish I had records of how good each year has been, but this year has been mostly ups.
Anyway, years are just arbitrary values we assign to time. Just like how we assigned months, days, hours, minutes and seconds to it. I can’t imagine a world where there is no concept of time though it would be interesting to see.
Since lists are all the rage this year, I’ll end the post with some.
Favorite movies this year: The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Lobster, Mad Max, The Martian.
Favorite musicians this year: Allison Weiss, No Devotion, Lil Dicky.
Favorite video games this year: Dota 2 (every year without a doubt), Hotline Miami 2
Things I learnt during the Big Bad Wolf Sale: people can’t read signs (or they choose to ignore them), people think I look 22, 12 hour shifts are long as hell, The Mines isn’t that far from my home, I probably need to learn Mandarin sometime, college kids are friendly people, my colleagues are awesome.
Misc: Spanish is a hard language to learn. Blogging everyday is a good way to practice writing. I still haven’t gotten rid of my procrastination habits. I’m sad that vaping might be banned in KL. I really think it’s a better alternative to smoking, not to mention it’s much cheaper. I’m so bad at covering songs, I think I should stop doing them until I get better. I have two nephews now. I’m considering buying an old ass sports car once I’m done paying for my Myvi (October 2016, I can’t wait). Kek.
Not sure what the following year has in store for me, but it should be interesting nevertheless! Happy 2016 everybody.
