[762] Updates

Last week my father-in-law passed away on January 10, 2018 at the age of 69. That was also the death anniversary of my paternal grandfather.

January 10 was also the birthdays of some nieces of my father-in-law, as well as the birthday my mom's pet labrador, Clancy.

People have mentioned that January is usually the time when plenty of deaths happen since the holidays just finished and there was a good chance a lot of people ate a lot of unhealthy foods. I wouldn't know for sure.

All I know is no matter what happens, life goes on. My wife mentioned she will not be able to move on from her father's passing, she will just learn to live with it.

As for me, I'm just taking things day by day. I'm thankful events of last year did not repeat this year. I'm still employed and still learning to better myself everyday.

[761] What Has Happened

It's been one year and three days since the incident happened. Basically a majority of people from where I used to work were removed due to redundancy. And it happened on my wedding anniversary.

Have I moved on? Yes, I would like to think so. Have I forgotten? No, never. Things like that will take me a long time to forgot.

What has happened since then? I've learned lessons about life and other people. I would like to think that despite all the negativity I felt at the time that I was still growing as a person. I feel like it has prepared me for future experiences like that.

Am I still emotional? Of course, that's what I am. I've learned to hide most of my emotion from other people who shouldn't know what I am actually feeling or thinking.

Anyway at least I found a new job. I met new people, made new friends. I am experiencing a lot more in life than I would have had the stats quo remained the same last year.

Looking back on things, I'm just glad I survived and hopefully became a better person because of those past experiences.

Oh, and I lost around 7kg since then. I'm aiming to drop to 90kg this year, and if possible maybe even before my 38th birthday.

[760] 2018

2018 has begun. A new year, a clean slate.

Here's hoping all of us achieve whatever goals we set, as long as it is positive and will contribute to better things for everyone. May we all have the patience and willpower to push through no matter what challenges we encounter in life.
