SO excited that I'm almost home, I can't contain it. I just want to blast music from my phone and dance around by myself in this hotel bar lounge. Haha scabbing wifi and killing time until my flight. just think, in exactly 12 hours I'll be home. I can't think of a better way to spend the last two weeks of my holidays :) home home home home homo. LOL.
to the people that haven't heard from me, hope you all had a merry Christmas. This years was quite uneventful, but when has it ever been super fun anyway? Well, not since I was like 12 I think. But hey, when I get older and have kids, I'm defs going to try get him/her/them excited and hopeful for Christmas. Sure, I'm not Christian and don't really celebrate it, but it's such a nice feeling when you get into the spirit and the whole "nothing's more important than family, friends and love" message is quite awesome.
New Year is coming also, and I think I'm happy to be able to leave 2013. It hasn't been the best year, but I'm definitely thankful for everything that has or hasn't happened, grateful for the lessons learnt. Man, I'm just grateful to have passed 3rd year actually! I was convinced that no amount of study would prepare me for the exams, but I guess I am a lucky bird. haha. also lucky to have amazing friends to help me get through it. To those that managed to get me through oral pathology, you must have great teaching skills. LOL. hate dat shiz. :)
I can only hope that my clinic skills will improve from here on in, though I'm happy that I actually enjoy talking to patients and interacting with them, as much as I complain and lol at how bat-crap-crazy some of them are. Cause how else will you keep the motivation to practice dentistry the rest of your life?!
New Years resolutions, have you made them yet? I certainly have. A draft copy anyway hahah.
1. Prioritise study, pass 4th year. be more professional
2. Get back into piano
3. Keep going with guitar
4. Read more novels
5. Stop eating right before bed, fool!
6. 50 double skips in a row. Terrible at them.
7. Keep temper under control when arguing with Zhen!! Jeebus.
Small goals, I know lol.. All are things I should be able to achieve so I have no excuse for not. Get going with the goal planning people!

Absolutely fuming at the loud people next door, it's almost midnight, WHY YOU SO LOUD?! every ten seconds I hear another loud thump. Maybe they're playing WWF wrestling like zhen and I used to, back in the day.
So I'm in Taiwan now, things are pretty gloomy-weather wise. I like it gloomy though. it's a nice weather to just let your mind wonder. Much better than the sweltering 43 degrees it is currently in Adelaide. trololol sucked in, adelaidians. <3 keep cool over there!
Taiwan this time round is just as I remembered it. People are very Asian, very orderly, things are super cheap, food is great and the sights are quite beautiful. Walking through some of the streets they bear quite alot of resemblance to the streets in Japan. I guess that's because of the huge influence the Japanese had left Taiwan with after invading. it's quite nice.
Ofcourse, every country I visit, I always end up thinking to myself- I could never live here. no matter how I imagine, I can't see myself living in another country that's not Australia. I can't even imagine myself living in another STATE. Close-minded? yeap, I think so. When did I become this way? or maybe I've always been so.
10 days to go until I'm home. I'm enjoying myself, but I've never stopped counting down the days til I'm back in Adelaide. there are people I want to meet, songs I want to learn on my guitar, hobbies I want to take up.

Sitting by the pool alone and in the dark, just to have wifi so that I may blog tonight before setting off to Taiwan! 8% of battery left on my phone too, lets see if I can get to the end without it dying on me. oh, 7% now. gee geeee. curry in a hurry!!
Speaking of curry, I've been eating alot of it! In addition to heaps of char kuey tiao, meegoreng, wan tan mee and laksa. Oh man. making food babies errrryday. The wedding dinner was fun, a chance to look kinda cute and meet the rest of the super extended family my grandma here decided to produce. LOL. 10kids enough for you there? never heard of condoms back then? HAHA I kid. maybe.
Getting bitten by a crap load of mosquitoes right now so I'll post a few pics and run away soon. 2weeks til I'm back in Adelaide, 2 weeks til New Years. What are your New Years resolutions?

What is it about the sunset or sunrise that people love so much about? The colours, the weather, the feelings, the company? Abit of both, I feel. Who you're with at the time can change the setting dramatically. Whoever you're with though, you can't deny that it's a beautiful view.
My brothers wedding last week was great. Touching, funny, quirky, exciting, hot, troublesome, busy and crazy all at the same time. Their vows almost brought me to tears, when my brother cranked the uke and started singing his heart out. When Angie quoted excerpts from "Marriage isn't about you", I couldn't help but think about my own situation and I agree with everything she said wholeheartedly. I couldn't take pics of everything, and I don't even have a proper pic of the bride and groom. Being bridesmaid was harder than I thought, especially on such a hot day. haha but I enjoyed it nonetheless and at the end of the day was so thankful that I was able to be apart of the bridal party. Congrats Ti and Angie :)
