And what am I doing in this significant moment at the brink of a New Year?
Nothing, actually. Just sitting here in my bedroom feverishly trying to revise for the coming exams. (whats new, right?)
Nevertheless, despite my somewhat lackluster way of ending this year. 2016 has been nothing short of a brilliant year for me. In all honestly, I felt that this was the year I truly took chances and learn to let go of my fears, even if its just abit.
Honestly, after my high school years ended, I felt like i somehow lost that part of me that loves to be active and take initiatives to join new things. For a long time, I felt comfortable with where I was and what I was doing in life. And that, isn't necessarily a good thing.
I became complacent. Just living my life with the routines that came along with it.
Thankfully, everything changed when I entered my second year of Uni. I joined KPUM (law society), then became the lead actress of Mnight (and the hours of rehearsals that came with it), joined Student Action Homeless projects with the Uni and became a Student Ambassador for my University. All these things gave me such priceless and unique experiences that I will never forget. Not to mention the variety of new friends you get to meet along the way.
I'll admit, time management is so important when you're juggling alot of things at the same time. Call me weird, but i actually feel more productive when I go out and do something, Rather than sit in my room, try to study but fail miserably by going on YouTube for hours.
I'm not going to go into the specifics of what I did in each event, but truly, the 2016 was the year I learnt not to be afraid to join things. Maybe confidence may come easily for some, but to me, I've always been a little nervous and anxious when it comes to venturing into unknown projects and stuff. I've also learnt that even if you get rejected, (trust me, i've had my share of those), it doesn't mean you're any less capable. Just stand back up and try again.
Remember, it only takes one person to change your life ;
Now in a typical old-school Natasha way of ending my blog posts. I'm gonna do some throwbacks of some moments in 2016.
Mnight memories (makes reconsider life decisions) (maybe I should just be an actress instead :P)

Well, I can hear the fireworks outside my window now. Happy New Year to anyone reading this, I hope you had a great 2016. Alhamdulillah for such an amazing year. Now, lets look forward to a new beginning :)
GOODBYE 2016, HELLO 2017.
