I turn 23

I turn 23 today. It’s just another day in the calendar, nothing really special, just a day where one celebrates being older. As I turn a year older, things change. I’m moving on to the 3rd year in university, a new window for IPPT, and a whole new experience.

I’m actually writing this on the 6th, so I could use wordpress and time it to load exactly when the clock strikes 12.

As I turn older, I find myself relooking at the things in my life; the priorities, the friendship, the feelings about things; my ambition, my studies e.t.c. So much has changed, and so much will change.

The friends you hold dear to your heart, some will stay in your life and make a difference, some will just leave. Some, just seemed to disappear and fade into the surroundings silently, like a disappearing ghost. You make an effort to treat everyone similarly, fairly, but in reality, people will always treat everyone differently. Yet that is only fair, or is it not? I don’t know, and I shouldn’t care. After all, I did my best in trying to be fair. As the chinese saying goes (by wk..thanks 🙂 anyway its in hanyu pinyin cause I can’t save chinese words) ning tian xia ren fu wo, mo wo fu xian xia ren.

I wonder for the one wish I get to make during my birthday, what wish will I make? Last year my uni clique went to watch meteorites and we saw one faint one. I remembered making a wish for my studies and it came true. The chances of seeing a meteorite in the near future seems to be zero since nobody wants to do it again, so there’s no free wish. Haha.

Just a few days ago, I told Jiahao what I probably will wish, but I’m not too sure if I’ll wish that now. It seems like it’s not really high on the priority list.

Updates: I went to enjoy a nice can of Sapporo Beer, and I was watching the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango. It kinda cheered me up a bit. I think I know what I want already.

I hope that I will be more clear about what I want in this coming new year before I turn 24, and I can change myself and be happier most of the time. I shall enjoy my journey as a 23 year old and see what life brings me. 🙂
