Thank You, 2014!

At the end of the year, I always do some self-reflection and create goals for the next year. In fact, at the start of the year, I made it a goal to blog at least once a month. Goal achieved! Midyear, I became more dedicated to blogging (also because I had much more free time on my hands) and soon enough, I actually stuck to a blogging schedule. So join me as I look back on the highlights of my 2014.

JANUARY
Welcomed the new year timidly bracing for the life-changing events that I knew were going to come.
Hello, 2014!
FEBRUARY
Spent Valentines at Castle Peak Hotel's LOVE AT THE TOP event/promo.
Full post HERE.
MARCH
By this month, I had submitted my application to study abroad and received my letter of offer. You'll find out more about that soon.

APRIL
Celebrated my birthday!
Full post HERE.
MAY
Resigned from my job. Even though I loved my job, it was just time to move on. It'll forever be a part of me though.
Read about the things I learned from my job HERE.
And then I celebrated by going on a trip where I got to swim with turtles!
Swimming with turtles in Apo Island.
JUNE
Spent June reviewing for and taking a major exam.

JULY
Spent this month eating my heart out around Cebu!

AUGUST
Ilocos trip!
VIGAN
SEPTEMBER
Boracay for our friend's wedding was the highlight of this month.
BORACAY
OCTOBER-DECEMBER
Final processing of our papers and necessary requirements done. Booked a flight. Can you guess where I'm headed? You're going to find out soon if you stick around!

It's been an amazing year and I made three major life-altering decisions this year. It sort of felt like a transition year as well as I left the mentality of the previous, younger years and have finally faced life in a very grounded and a bit more mature manner. (Oh my, I'm getting old. In fact, I felt like 26 is the age to make life-altering decisions.) And since I know that next year will have a whole new set of scarier challenges for me, I made sure to spend 2014 savoring every single day enjoying life the best way I know how. I'm extremely thankful to God for all the blessings He has bestowed upon me as everything I have, I have because of Him. Hope you all had a great year as well. Wishing you all an advanced happy new year! :)

  2. It sounds like you've had an amazing year! These photos are so pretty and I know what you mean, with 2014 being a transition year. I think I'm going to start reflecting and making goals this year too..
