- Managed to save enough money and went to Japan
I worked my ass off for a year, saving money and finally got to go on a trip I wanted to go on for the last 5 years! Last summer was one of the best ones I've had in a long time.
- Got a lot of new friends
Made many new friends during the year, but if I have to point out someone especially, I would say Anna. We had followed eachother on Twitter for some time, but nothing more than that. I found out we were going to Tokyo at the same time and she seemed like a really nice person, so I decided to crash one of her and her friends' parties before summer so we could get to know eachother a little before the trip. In the end we spent the whole month in Tokyo together and I wouldn't have it any other way.
- Got to design my own nail polish
One of my long-time dreams came true! Read the post about it here. I wouldn't complain if I got more chances to design stuff.
- My best friend moved back to Finland
Alex moved to Stockholm for a year and it was hard to get used to not seeing him whenever I wanted to. We met a few times during the past year though and kept calling eachother and now, after a year it's like nothing ever even changed.
- Learned to drink tea
I've always been bad at drinking coffee or tea, because I didn't like the taste. But this year I decided to learn to like tea! It's so much easier to attend social events now, because coffee and tea is always served. Now I don't have to stick with water only.
- Became single
A three year long relationship came to an end, but hey, nobody wants to be in a non-working relationship. Sleeping alone sucks butt though.
- Had a couple not-so-good dates
After becoming single, I decided to go out with some people just for the fun of it. Didn't really click with anyone though haha. But I guess it's not so bad not having to care about what anyone expects from you.
- Gained some weight
Things got a bit out of hand during the summer. But I'm getting back on track now! As Jopo always says: "I cannot afford to grow out my of clothes".
- Had a break from blogging
While I felt really anxious about blogging and didn't even want to open my own blog, it was also a good and eye opening experience to have a break.
- I wish I had known more japanese
Going to Japan is a lot of fun, whether you speak the language or not. However, you will get to communicate with the locals so much better if you can actually speak the language with them. Sure some speak english too, but with many people, their skills are limited.
I also wish I could've expressed myself better, because I'm so much funnier when I'm fluent in a language. This on the other hand made me want to continue my language studies!
These were my highs and lows in 2014! How was your year?
