It's the second day of the new year and here I am typing this post on my bed. I've just finished watching the movie entitled, Genius; which was remarkably a good choice of movie to watch. You'll like it if you are those people who love words and expression or to put it simply when you appreciates poetry and literature. 

I am going to turn 23 years old this year. A year older with hopes a year wiser as well. I was watching tv with dad yesterday when we saw a documentary about a guy who flew all over the world in a small aircraft and he's only 21 y/o that time. Amazing kid, really. Wondered what I did when I was 21, most probably busy looking out ways to have fun and waste time. Sigh. 

Twenty-sixteen has been a brutal year for me. I have to admit that. It has been a very exhausting year, both physically and mentally. For so many reasons I can't write here but it was only bearable with the help of God. He sent me those amazing people who supported me, without me actually realizing it while it happened. A year that tested me with patience, trust, dependence, lacking things, feeling lonely, making choices, friendship, and so many others. Probably it was the year that makes me realize what's the value of being grateful and thankful really is. Nonetheless, I did not regret any of it. It was a blessing in disguise. I got to know a lot, like a wholesome lot about myself and about those around me which I reckon would never happen if things are different. So I am quite confident to say that twenty-sixteen has been a year that both brings me tears and laughter, 366 days with so many flavors. 

Coming to twenty-seventeen, I had a chat with a colleague the other day and she asked me what is my new year resolution; which at that time I have not thought about yet. But I know now, one of it is to graduate from University of Sydney with a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering. That’s one of my many resolutions, of course. There's another friend who said she just wanted to make sure that she will always pray on time and 5 times a day and night. I guess all of us has different aims right? 

I pray to God that all of us will be given blessings in our time so that we can do all the things that are beneficial and that are good for us. I pray that not a minute passed wasted with regrets. I pray that each of us, you reading this, and me, writing this, would get the best in things we do and God will always shower us His blessings and mercy and took us in His Guidance and Protection. 

Warm welcome 2017, another 364 days to be filled with scrumptious things in life! 

p/s: I only managed to read 18 books last year, hopefully, the number would be a lot more this year.
