Hello, October.

Wake me up, when September ends.

Does anyone from my generation remember this "iconic" song from our teenager days? We're down to the final 3 months of the year, and the past 9 months, so many things have happened that I felt like maybe a few years have passed.

In the span of 9 months,
I ended about 18 years of education.
Traveled to 5 countries, 13 cities, which is probably more than I have ever done so in my entire lifetime.
Took a leap of faith and got into a new relationship
Got hospitalized for the first time
Took my mum on a holiday and paid for her trip

Amongst many other experiences and opportunities, many gains and some losses.

I felt that this year, I grew up the most. I grew out of many, many things that I once felt were important, or maybe fun. I also had my occasional moments or days when I let negativity took over but glad that most days, I remain positive and focused on the goals I set out to achieve.

When I was still a student, goal settings always revolve around grades, saving a particular amount by the end of the year so that I can travel, be able to do this and that. But now that I am a "full fledged adult", my goal tend towards saving enough money for the future to settle down, managing finances properly, to get a license/a car or whatever.

But these goals are mostly tangible. What about the intangible ones? Our health, our mental and physical health. Our relationships with people.

I aim be happy everyday, learn new things everything and spend time with my loved ones as much as I can.

To focus on what makes you a more positive and better person, and to start learning to give back to the ones I've received from.
