01/12: A Photo Series

I’m trying to document and share more tidbits on my Instagram feed, even though my life is so ordinary. Given that the platform has become our digital album, I want to be able to look back and flip through the photos. I once did a weekly photo series on my old blog. But just to think of doing that now exhaust me already. So, I’m trying to do it monthly now. And here’s my January.

You know, when I named this new blog January Blues, I just wanted to combine my two favorite things which is the month of my birthday and my favorite color. I also knew that January always makes me feel a little blue because getting older always makes me reminisce my accomplishment and what I could have done. But this January is especially blue. I’m still trying to overcome a personal heartbreak. I think I have gone through the worst part but it still stings when I think about it. Yet, I feel so loved with all the wishes, attentions, and gifts from my friends.

I also turned 29 this month. Although it’s scary to think that this year will be the last of my 20s, I’m also excited about the possibilites.

In terms of resolutions, I never really had a  crazy ambitious resolution. However, I feel like everyone has threw resolution out of the window this year and just trying to stay alive. And that’s what I want to do as well. Stay alive and don’t be so hard on yourself.
