2015: Year Wrap

By Elie - 4:30 AM

Days since my last post: 8

Yay, if it isn't already time to deal with the old resolutions and realize that I've come a long, long way since 2014! I can't believe how quickly this year whizzed past, with so much exciting things happening. I admit though, I have my down times too but sometimes we've just got to look at the better end of life. So as usual, I enjoy looking at my past to think of what I really wanted at the start of the year as opposed to what I actually managed to hit.

2015's resolution here: http://www.cantuslupus.com/2015/01/come-ye-2015.html

If drawing out all my money to a lone trip was not loving myself, I don't know what is.

Love myself more. I guess when I wrote my resolution list for 2015, England never came to mind. I knew I wanted to travel and experience more in life but for me to have agreed to the RM 2,800 payment over my Emirates flight ticket, I guess the term "loving myself" just came to life. And I don't regret a single moment of that. Quoting one of the lines I wrote a year back:

"...you will still be you and there's no one who deserves more love than yourself."

Why am I such an old soul? But yes. Love myself more? Hit.

 With the crew. 

And the world's most amazing BFF.

I don't know about you, but I think 2015 was pretty good on travels for me. I made memories with my family, I made memories with my friends. We explored places we've never seen, we've done things we've never done, and ultimately we took the word "travel" for real. I wouldn't switch these experiences for anything in the world today.


I guess I didn't do too well in 2015 in terms of resolutions but whatever I really wanted to achieve, those were fine. And anyway I'm glad they all happened. So the misses? They don't really matter, and neither do they deserve to be remembered.


2015 became a year where a lot happened, and just as every other year, I think a lot of it deserves to be addressed. One of the most prominent change is that we now have an additional member to the family, all thanks to my big brother who decided to change his (and our) lives forever.

The Lam family: Updated 22nd November 2015 

I doubt I've ever said this to my brother or my sister-in-law, but I am really proud of them. I'm proud of the people they have become together, and for showing me what fate can do to you. Maybe you'd ask, "Why can't your parents have shown you that?" Well, I didn't see what happened BEFORE they got together, did I? Watching my one and only brother get married became a significant change in my life, knowing that love will someday conquer what come may. And hopefully someday, I'll find that someone who will walk that distance with me.

2015: THE END
