Rant: January recap and Sherlock
30 January 2017 with (8) loves
It has been a month since my last update and I truly regret that. This is all my fault for not taking care of my blog and I'm sorry. I'm not busy with my life right now, I just am lack of ideas on what to talk about because I'll just write nonsense that will not give you any benefit of reading this blog. I always hear people saying to visit other people's blog and take inspiration based on their writing and I have this thought on why I should write the same thing as someone else's? And that lead to not having any update in a month.
Oh whale. 🐋
These are some of the things that I got to experience/learn in January and also a journey to complete my 2017 resolutions.
2. I've mentioned before than I want to save money and alhamdulillah I think I'm slowly but surely getting there. I've set up an expenses tracker in my journal - which I'm not going to share because January is the trial month and it has been messy! I'm going to do better in February and set a cleaner layout.
3. I'm still working out in blog updating - hopefully my life going to be exciting from now on, so I can share to you what happened or please ideas come back to me!
4. In the healthy lifestyle part I think I'm doing great right now. I'm restricting myself to drink flavored drinks once a day - be it at lunch or dinner.
And last week I joined my uni's diploma activity called Night Lite Run. The run part is obviously not for me because I spend the whole time jogging and walking, so yeah gotta work out on the stamina first maybe. If you followed my instagram, you can see that I posted 3 photos of that night which none of them with a medal in it :(

6. Last week too I ordered a copy of book titled More than This by Patrick Ness. Mainly because it's on sale and I can't keep my hands to myself, sorry mom I know I bought 3 books last month that are still in my TBR list but I. Just. Can't. Maybe I'll write a review about it after I read it. That going to take months because I always get reading slumps and that s----
Unfortunately, due to Chinese New Year debookroom is going to continue their shipping service after 6 February, so I have to wait for 2 weeks until I get can it in my hands. Please be patience lee, you can do this!
7. On the title I've said it first folks! Let's talk about Sherlock - one of the famous TV Series that started back in 2010 and I know lots of you had watched it before. I started and finished watching this series this month and all I can say is - mindblown. I thought season 4 going to be 4 episodes and I was wrong it have 3 episodes and I want more of it!
I want to know more about Holmes siblings and why are the siblings are all high functioning sociopath while their parents look absolutely normal people. It is weird if I say I'm so glad when Moriarty died because he deserve it so much after playing with both Sherlock's and MY minds.

Alright, that's going to be the end of my entry today. This is my first numbered monthly entry. Maybe I'll do this every the end of the month to see what I've achieve in journey to complete my resolutions. Oh, who am I kidding - I did this because I have so much topics to talk about and I don't want it to look messy and hard to read when I jump off topic in each paragraph.
Tell me what have you done or achieved in January in my comment box below :)
Until I write again.
Recap and 2017 resolutions
5 January 2017 with (14) loves
Is it too late to wish all of you a Happy new Year? I hope not, because hi hello Happy new year! May Allah ease everything and I hope your skin get clearer, your life reciprocated and have a great year ahead! 🎊
2016 gave me lots of experiences in life. It was my first time I stay away from my family. I totally did not expect that I am going to be away, because all through my life I just want to stay near them. I totally despise those 6 hours of train ride that bring me away from my family. But what can I say, when the needs to learn new things is greater than being at home.
On 28th December 2016, my grandmother on my mother's side passed away at 7.30 am. At that day I had 2 mid sem tests, so I can't go back to hometown as soon as I can. My mother also didn't manage to see my late-grandmother for the last time because she was from Sabah and time is not on her side, so she approximately arrive at my hometown after Zohor. I hope you can contribute an Al Fatihah to my late-grandmother. May Allah bless.
Last year also gave me a new meaning of friendship. It was my first time staying with people I did not know who they are, where they are from, what personalities they have, but I'm blessed to have a friend that stays with me - in term of housemates - since semester 1 until semester 2. I hope she wants to stay with me until we're in semester 5. Staying in a house with 8 others housemates make me realize how important patience and tolerant are.
Last two years, I did not make any new year resolutions because when I think back, what's the point of writing it if I don't try to achieve it? But this year I'm going to set my mind and soul to achieve 2017 resolutions.
In 2017 I want to;
#1 Be a better servant of Allah
As we know, the increasing of year means we are lots closer to the end of the world. I want to leave how jahil I was in the past and be a better human and be closer to our Creator. This is my new year resolution every year but I still going to write this although it’s such a common thing that everyone wants – to give me encouragement to myself and you.
#2 Save money
Inalillah to all my money I waste on nothing in 2016 😔 This year I want to save more money than I did last year. Malaysia is having economy problem and I'm borrowing money from ptptn, so got to have a back up on how to pay for the hutang right? And yes, to buy some rewards for myself - for whatever reason.
#3 Get dean list for sem 2 and sem 3
Right now I'm in a middle of semester 2 and going to finish it in less than 3 months. I will having my final exam on March, then 3 months of semester break and I'm going to be in diploma 2nd year aka semester 3. So for these both semester of course, every student want to be in dean list and I want it too. I really want to get my CGPA 3.5 and above. I don't know if I'm going to get it, it all belongs to yang Maha Esa, but I'm going to work hard and we'll see 😌
#4 Update blog regularly and first giveaway (?)
The ulimate reason of why I don't update blog regularly is because every time I open the new post tab, all my ideas just seem to puff - up up and away ~ I can't bear to let myself write any more half-asses entry so from that I also holding myself back from writing any entry, which is very pathetic. What kind of blogger having writer block every time she opens new blank space? *smh.
Also, I've been planning to make a first giveaway (maybe when I reach 500 followers). I am not sure about this yet, but I will try to make this happens this year. Maybe I'll make an entry of who wants to be sponsor or I'll try to do it by myself. I just hope that some people will support me and interest in joining it - I'm such a flop queen I'm not sure anymore 😰
#5 Lead a healthy lifestyle
I'm not really sure about this resolution but I still want to try it. I'll try to ask my friends to join me jogging, as I told you before I'm not the most independent person, so I need someone to push me until I can do it by myself.
Ever since I come back from uni last Saturday, my friends here and my aunties keep saying I've become skinnier than I was before. I'm going to try increase my weight although I don't have any idea how I'm going to do that because I'm not the one can eat lots of food at the same time. I'll puke all the food out and it's not going to be nice at all.
That's all my resolutions for this year. I'm not going to write any more of it because yang these 5 pun I'm sure I can complete them haha. Again, I hope you're going to have a fantastic year and may Allah bless all our lives. InsyaAllah.
Until I write again👋
