24-27 January 2013

24th Jan: Had a good lunch with an acquaintance-friend , something which is a bit of an accomplishment given that I tend to become overly nervous in such situations. Later took the LNAT which I think I did reasonably okay in. Hoping to better my score! And the waiter at Coffee Bean was really friendly. In the evening I watched the movie Never Let Me Go, it was wonderful. This leads to...
25th Jan: Spent the rest of my Saturday feeling rather emotionally drained after crying so much. (this is a good feeling)
26th Jan: My dad's birthday!
27th Jan: Met up with someone I haven't seen in a while and had a long, walk. Also I bumped into my old tutor on the train.

Back home now and feeling strangely contended. The days have been passing fast and I will probably have to make some big decisions pretty soon.

catching up

I've skipped quite a few days for the 365 day challenge, but for the 23rd of January I was glad to have an hour where I could just stand in a spot in the city centre and people watch/collect my thoughts, thanks to the low battery on my phone. I was waiting for someone, but it sure felt pretty peaceful.

22nd January: I was glad to meet a friend from college by coincidence. Hadn't seen her for close to a year, if not longer.
21st January: I was glad that I took the step to get in touch with someone before they drifted too far away.
20th January: Glad to find someone selling what I wanted at a low price!
19th January: It was a good day working hard at the dog shelter.
18th January: ?
17th January: ?

Submitted UCAS

Just submitted my UCAS application for the second time, barely an hour before the deadline. I am exhausted. I have chipped nail polish to be taken off and a ton of readings to be done before noon tomorrow. But all is good. Now I shall wait for offers and rejections to roll in, before deciding what to do.

For the 15th/16th of January: I am glad that I convinced myself to go through with the UCAS application in the end, regardless of the fact that I probably could have drafted a better personal statement had I not given myself such little time to prepare, and that I do not even yet know if I will really end up going overseas.

And now, time for bed.

Thursday, January 2, 2014


For every day of 2014, I will write down something good that happened to me that day or one thing that I am grateful for. Then when the year ends, I can look back and realise that life is great if you let it be.

My new year resolution for 2014 is to be a better person, whatever that may mean.

... And also to read more books. Planning to go to the library tomorrow!

Probably one of the best things I could have seen on 1 Jan.
