2018 in a Nutshell

2018 in a Nutshell

In my head, I already have at least five different ways to start my 2018 year-end post. But now that I’m typing this post down, I can’t seem to remember any of it. Oh well, here’s to winging it and hoping for the best – which is basically the attitude I have all throughout 2018.

Looking back at my 2017 year-ender post, I see that I settled. Unfortunately for me, that’s also what I feel like I was doing in 2018 for some portions of my life. BUT, I also strived in other aspects of my life which I will happily take and is one of my goals for this year. It’s a year of ups and middle grounds, but overall, I was happy this year. I’ve been consistently happy for the past years and that’s something I’m very grateful for. To commemorate that, I’ll be sharing some of my 2018 highlights.

2018 Life Updates (Trips, Lasik, Etc.)

2018 Life Updates; Richel Goes PlacesHi, blog! It’s been a hot minute since I posted any updates. 2018 has been crazy busy and not in a bad way. I’ve been having a blast! There’s been a few major life changes and a lot of minor ones that are still on-going. I think I’ll go a bit more in depth about them in my next posts or in my 2018 wrap-up post. But, some quick updates below in no chronological order:

2018: First Quadrimester

First Quadrimester

I spent the past ten minutes trying to find out what term translates to “every four months”. There’s a couple terms floating around but this one stuck to me. Quadrimester is a mix of latin words “quadri” which means four and “mester” which means months. This isn’t a very popular term (for me) but I thought, “eh, good enough.” Of course, I wouldn’t have this problem if I posted after a quarter of this year like I planned to…

Singapore’s Best Destination for Flower Shopping

A Better Florist is Singapore’s hottest destination for flower shopping, that is, if you’re on the search for a florist that you can always rely on and most of all trust. There are plenty of florists in Singapore, but there’s only a handful or even less that you can trust have the freshest blooms, the best delivery and never let you down. A Better Florist has definitely proven that they aren’t playing, so it doesn’t surprise us that they are deemed as the best flower delivery in Singapore.

2017 in a Nutshell

I’ve been trying to find the right words to describe 2017 before 2017 even ended. I’ve attempted to make this year-ender a few times, but never having the right words to do so. Even now, I’m not exactly sure what to type next. I’ve accepted 2017 for what it was but it’s still something to admit it to other people. Because while it may seem like I have my shit together, I really don’t. I’ve seen people flourish around me while I do the same things every single day and it was an active choice that I still do. That while 2017 was personally an okay year for me, I didn’t try to do any better. In 2017, I settled.
