A year has passed since I last written something to express myself – whether I wanted to be heard, or simply for the sake of my sanity alone. I don’t know how I did it – survive the past year. Frankly, I think ‘survive’ is an understatement. After everything that I’ve been through since 2016, I can fairly say that I’ve toughened up and got through victoriously with what life has thrown my way.
You see, in the last post here, I mentioned my cousin being diagnosed with leukemia. But I never got to the point of talking about how it all unfolded right before my eyes, and how it shattered me right to the core when she said goodbye. Kate, if you’re reading this in Heaven, please know that I love you and I miss you so much. So much. You showed and taught me how to be truly brave. I found a new meaning in life because of you. You are always in my heart.
In another light, if you’ve been reading a few posts from this blog. I might have mentioned a few times about being separted from my long term boyfriend. Well, I guess life has its own twists and turns: a part of me has been taken away forever, and yet, the biggest part of me has come back for good.
It doesn’t even stop there. When I started this blog, I was yet just a student juggling her priorities in life but as I write now, I’m not just a graduate of an engineering degree but also am a licensed engineer. It was such an amazing, thrilling, and perplexing undertaking that I can start a whole blog all about it.
I want to be able to write all about the past year’s adventure. It was one hell of a rollercoaster ride and definitely nothing short of spectacular. But for now, I just want to pat myself in the back for being able to find the courage to go back to writing once again.
