Sorry for my blog-absence! Looks like I procrastinated actioning my New Year Resolution to cease procrastinating! haha. Nah, I don't really do New Year Resolutions... I make resolutions 24/7, and being a New Year doesn't really help me stick to them any better... It adds more pressure, if anything.
Having said that though, I am feeling pretty positive about 2012. I mean, after the 2011 I had (especially the latter half) things can only look up (touch wood, fingers crossed, etc etc!).
|source: we heart it.|
I also believe that things happen for a reason... and maybe, jussssst maybe my sister going bat-sh!t crazy on me gave me the push I need to get where I want to be. That is not to say I am in any way grateful to her for that though! I am grateful for myself for that. It took a helluva lot of courage for me to leave, and it took an alcohol-saturated Deep & Meaningful with an old bestie to have that pointed out to me and for me to start to believe it.
I still feel bad... still broken. I still fall asleep wondering if my beloved Bender Bear is missing me cos I sure am missing him, or if he will even still remember me. I feel tremendous guilt for leaving. Leaving Bender, the Puppy, my Nephews, my Dad. But I could. not. stay there anymore. And that is that. I was suffocating, my head held down underwater... And actually, truth be told, I had been forced to practice holding my breath for years... Existing in Pause Land, waiting for my chance to break the surface, take a deep breath and finally get the fudge out of there!
Anyhooooo, not to dwell too much... Instead of New Years Resolutions I'm making New Years Revelations!! Hehe
I want to introduce you all to my new 2012 diary. My first ever Moleskin! I have wanted one for quite sometime.
Obviously, I have a bit of a penchant for Pink and if something comes in Pink, I want it. I want it bad. The only size Moleskin in Pink was the "extra small" size. I thought, hmm how small could it really be?!... Well, it's small... Extra small! I even thought it was too small! But now that I am over the initial shock, I like it. The size is actually adorable!
I had to send pics to people to ascertain their opinion whether it was too small-- hence my hand in the pics for size referencing.
|Cute nails, right?!|
The inside is actually quite roomy. And the space to write for each day is actually larger than what i coped with in my 2011 diary! So, um... Yay!
I purchased my Moleskin from The Book Depository and I'm super happy with a) the price (practically 1/2 of what it would have cost in an Australian store) and b) the fast shipping, which was FREE. I ordered it on the 23rd of December, and it arrived before the New Year! Woop Woo!!
Ohh and I had to, I repeat had to pick up the cutest little crystal-topped pencil to match my new diary... Check it...
Till next we speak!!
Oh and PS: I didn't spend Christmas or New Years Eve like I usually do (ie: with my family), so it kind of feels like it never happened. I will update more on what I got up to I'm my next post.
