There's a definite pendulum effect when it comes to my affection for Dippy.
I hate her but I love her.
I love her because she's fucking cute. I mean that face could really melt anyone's heart, and that bitch is a master manipulator. She can cuddle and nuzzle against you as if she really loves you so that you'll give her anything she wants, but once she gets it, you're nobody to her.
That brings me to why I hate her.
Because she's fucking cute and is a master manipulator! Also, she leaves her fur everywhere and is such a smelly poopy cat. Also, when she's upset, she's so destructive. She's vindicating and can hold a grudge longer than my mother can.
But this face.

I never cease to be amazed by the myriad of people that live on this earth.
Some are athletic, some are philosophers, some are brilliant. Some are kind, some are gentle and some are creative! It makes me think on the kind of person I am as a whole, and the kind of girl I am. What do others think I am?
I recently came across a girl's Facebook profile. I notice she's a simple person, who loves travelling and the great outdoors. She cycles for fun, treks hills for pleasure and travels on a serious budget to maximise her time in a country.
Sometimes I mutter to myself, "Wow, she's so simple!". And this is in a very judgey way (I'm terrible, I know), but at the same time I'm also quite ashamed to admit that I'd never be able to do what she's doing. Hack it out in the wild like that. Travel by bicycle. Live in trailers. Wear very functional clothes (ie not stylish).
So what kind of girl am I?
I like travelling in comfort-- I'd never explore the wild on a bike for sure.
I like sleeping in a nice hotel-- I'd never live in a trailer park with minimal bathing faciliries!
I like buying clothes FOR travelling-- I'd never be caught wearing that!
I like eating out at local food places in the country I'm in-- I'd never cook basic pasta with broth just to save money
With this, I conclude I am a diva.
Of course, these confessions are hard to hear. I'd hate meeting me on a holiday trip...
BUT I WILL NOT BE MOVED!
I will not be pressured into thinking that travelling humbly is the best way to travel. In fact, the best way to travel is in comfort. And if I can afford it, in STYLE! What girl yearns to travel dirtily and minimally?
The only minimal thing I'd want to travel with is luggage! So that I can buy more things at my travel destination to bring home!
Why shouldn't I strive to achieve the little luxuries in life? I mean, at this point in time, I'm not even insisting travelling first class to my holiday destinations, or staying in giant mansions with servants waiting on me (Not that I can afford it, haha).
But anyway, I've digressed.
What started out as a post on self reflection, supposedly aimed to teaching me a lesson on humility has only turned on itself. I am now even more determined to have greater capacity to travel and live on as little financial restraints, and in MORE frivolous luxury.
Judge away, hehe.

Aaaaaaaaaand whaddya know, it's the end of the year.
I try to make it a point to write at the end and beginning of every year. It's not been easy keeping up this casual writing thing.
In a nutshell, the year has been equally weighted with victories and failures. I think that there were more victories (in terms of frequency?), but the failures this year really hit me hard. That being said, I feel 2014 has been a great year nonetheless :) Objectively, definitely a good year compared to past recent ones.
I never take failure in good stride anyhow.
I'd usually make a list for new year's resolutions, knowing fully that the list isn't going to be honoured, of course. But making a list just somehow completes the experience, y'know?
However, this year I won't.
Instead, I want to hope and dream for bigger and better things to come in 2015. Dreams and hopes that I dare not put down (I don't take failure well, remember?), but assuredly I'll let you know if they do happen.
So here's to an EVEN BETTER year ahead.
God has been faithful, and I know that my life is in His hands.
