Goodbye, 2017. Hello, 2018!


Well, it’s time to say goodbye to another year. 2017 was a year of learning, growing and chaos. Β It started off alright…until September and October arrived. 😩 I certainly do NOT wish to see a repeat of what happened this year happen in 2018.

As for the new year, I have one major wish: To have God watch over my family–especially my parents’ and brother’s health. Β β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½πŸ’™

One thing I will no longer worry about is going out of my way to communicate with someone, who doesn’t reciprocate the communication nor the friendship. Friendship is a two-way street, which means I don’t have time for clique-like or short-term friendships. πŸ‘‹πŸ½Β πŸ™„

Finally, in 2018, I will focus on myself. The last 2+ years have been really stressful and taxing–especially on me. As a result, I intend to take more time out for myself and will work on completing a few goals on my bucket list. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜ƒ

Christmas Music Countdown, Part VII

This song was first released in 1994. Well, 23 years later, it finally made it to Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10.

This video rarely receives air play, but I believe this version is paying homage to the 1960’s. I’m certain this song will continue playing around Christmas time for two or more decades. πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ€πŸŽ΅πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½
