Synergy

(Not-so) Secret Santa Gift 2016 - A drawing of one of my Instagram photos in a frame. 


"You haven't updated your blog in so long.

Irfan said that to me, and he's right.. I haven't. It kinda caught me off guard when he pointed that out because I didn't know that he still comes here ! Somehow I find it really sweet that he still wants to read what I write, despite me already talking to him too much already haha. Anyway, I had a really good day with him yesterday. Had Thai food, and we finally watched Fantastic Beasts ! I liked it, and I get excited every time I hear something familiar like Hogwarts, Dumbledore, Lestrange, Alohomora. I've been spending most of my nights rewatching the Harry Potter series lately, and I guess the excitement of watching Fantastic Beasts had built up from there. Little fact about me : I am quite the Potterhead. I remember crying during the intro of Deathly Hallows Part II in the cinema because I was really sad that it was the last movie -- yes, you can call me crazy (but I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one pfft). 

These past few weeks have been busy, and tiring. But I am happy. I don't know if I just happen to see / read / hear things at the wrong time, but I feel like a lot of people I know are upset or depressed or  struggling with something. It's normal, it's a part of life to feel down, but here's a tip : count your blessings. You'll realise how small your problems are and how you're actually really lucky to be where you are now. It's difficult to feel down when you're grateful, trust me. Sending out virtual hugs to anyone who needs it !

Due to my lack of updates, I realise I don't have a lot of photos on my blog now.. So, here's me doing my future sentimental self a favour :

1. That one time I had waffles by myself



2. Found a wall of these pretty coloured posters in an alleyway



3. Job description includes climbing on chairs to take nice flatlays for Instagram




4. Did community service at the beach for my Management Skills class 

Morib. 


5. This is my cat Marissa Grey. But we call her Peppi for short. 





6. Life discussions over cendol 



7. This is Butter and Peppi. Making a mess. 



8. Attended a wedding together ! I want to get this picture printed. 



9. Flared. 



10. Probably one of my favourite pictures I've ever taken of Irfan. His shirt matches the chicken ham in his pasta, and his drink matches the leafy background. Aesthetics !



11. Flared part II 




12. Food date with Jane 



13. Where Butter likes to nap - the white desk chair in my room



I've already started filling up my 2017 planner and it just dawned on me how close we are to the new year. I'm not that excited because I have finals in the second week of January haha. Oh, I finally got my diploma transcript, and I thought of writing a post about how I survived my 2 years of diploma. If anyone wants to ask anything specific, drop your questions in the comments and I'll try to address them in that post. Hope everyone's having a good December so far. x

Also, i'll be starting my degree soon, just asking during your studies, would you prefer having your notes taken in notebooks or loose papers put in binders.

  3. Hey Izza! Now what I have to ask has nothing to do with what your post is all about but I need your advice. Pretty sure you know the beauty standards in today's society. I've been struggling with my weight and physical appearance for a long time now. It used to never bother me what people thought about me. If you like me then great but if you don't that's fine too. But lately I've been feeling a little insecure almost like I'm losing my confidence. I hope this is just a phase sigh. xx

    1. Hii, I'm so sorry you feel that way ! I think everyone deserves to feel beautiful, and not insecure. What's the main source of you feeling this way ? If it's the people around you that are making you feel that way, then don't be around them too much. But if it's just from your own mind, then you can try doing something about that. Buy more clothes to make you feel pretty, treat yourself with so much love cause you deserve it, and exercise not just for looks but to actually feel good about yourself. Kill all the negative thoughts, and remember why you're special as a person and what you look like doesn't define you :) I'm pretty sure this is just a phase, you'll get through it. xx

    1. I don't have one specific way that I wear it, I wear it a few different ways depending on the outfit or how lazy / rajin I am haha. But all of them are super simple, insyaAllah if I have the time I'll try to make a post / video.
