I accidentally picked up this book since it wasn’t listed under my TBR. I was doing a research about depression, mental illness, etc as part of my writing project, and while searching for some materials to read, I stumbled upon this book. I finished the book (about 400 pages) on 1st March, and decided to write something about it. I try my best to avoid major spoilers as best as I could.
In mid February, we went for a short trip not too far from home, about 2 hours drive. As usual, my bags were heavier than me – not only that I brought my laptop along (was hoping I could complete downloading my new MMO game), I also carried with me a couple of books, as if I’m not going to return. We checked in at Corus Paradise, Port Dickson.
Beginning of Year 2017, I am pretty much living as a nomad. Not that I have been travelling aimlessly to anywhere, but I spent almost the entire month outside of home. Aside from camping at my parents’, I stayed at my cousin’s new place, which feels like staying in a resort — it came with a package of a great scenery with breezing air.
This year, there weren’t much things going on in my life. Most likely it was because of my long-term illnesses that limit my work, social life, travel and others. One of the main reason I quit my permanent job in late 2015 was because of it. As a result, I live with only little savings, which also means no travelling for this year as well. I left with no choice but to sacrifice my passion.
However, one of the good things that I encountered throughout the year was about self-discovery. I spent plenty of time getting to know myself a little bit better, like things that I enjoyed having or stuff that I have always wanted to do but never had the chance. When I did a makeover to this blog this year, it was pleasing to find that writing my profile and describing more about myself was easier.
