I only managed to write about 20 entries in my diary last year. When I first started using a diary a few years ago I wrote in it every single day without exception.
These days I only write in my diary when something important or interesting happens but last year I didn’t even bother writing most of those things in my diary. All I need to do is get into the habit of writing in my diary when those things happen. 16 months ago
I think I’m averaging about 3 diary-entries a week, which is good! It really feels like a relief to just write stuff down, even though most stuff isn’t that interesting. It just takes the weight off you somehow. 21 months ago
It’s strange sometimes. Looking back on my old diaries. Although Chinese is not my first language, somehow the entries I wrote have a way of expressing what I want to say, and in such a simple way. Something I still want to improve.
Life is going well, maybe even a little better than I expected at this point in my life. I went to see a 2 bed flat, it was modern, had everything I needed and most of all affordable. I think my goal is to look for a place to buy, potentially by the end of next year.
I also promised a friend that I will go speed dating with her. For me this is a step that I have taken a bit unwillingly. Not because of the task itself but what others have said. Living in a great area in London, being well liked by my work colleagues, being told by others I am pretty, they form a segment of my life. Yet I never thought in combination that it would make people think I had an easy life.
Becoming more comfortable with the way I look has been a long road. I still wish to be slimmer, wear heels to look taller and curl my hair from time to time. But at the end of the day, I realised the minor physical changes should not detract from just being who I am. That if my own personality, sense of humour and capabilities shine through, that is they key which really makes people like you.
I have grown up in an amazing place. Where I have everything I need at my fingertips. Being next to the river, near beautiful parks and easily accessible to visit my friends. Yet deep inside, I still want to have a place to call my own. Hopefully in the near future it will happen.
For now happiness is spending time with friends and family. Treasuring everything by just living in the moment. 21 months ago
