Last post of the Year + How we celebrate New Year's


Yay, tomorrow's New Year's! ^_^ Aren't you all excited? I really am hahahahaha, I really enjoy this special date <3 Well, I'm gonna tell you guys how's my life going and what I received on my last days of 2012:




First of all, I got Nadya's package not so long ago :) Nadya is from Vorónezh, Russia, pretty close to the border with Ukraine. I met her on Interpals and she sounded like a great girl to talk to! Plus, we have many things in common (we both love photography, Asian cinema, anime...), so we started snail mailing. She sent me this envelope with a Xmas card, several postcards from her city and a letter. Thanks so much dear, Большое спасибо! ^_^ Her package is ready to send next week!



Also, I got this box from Niki in California (USA). She sent me lots of sweets, candy and cute stuff! <3 I was so happy to get her package, I didn't expect this from her <3 So, thanks so much sweetheart, that was super nice from you :D Her package will be sent soon as well.




Finally, Judy from China said Merry Christmas to me via Instagram <3 Haha, she's such a sweetheart, she loves writing to me too! We're snail mail pals too, but letters take a long time to get to China and vice versa, so we take our time. We're always chatting via Kakaotalk though, so we're in touch ^_^ I'd love to meet her if I have the chance to go to China (when I'm in Korea)!

So, appart from that, I'm having really nice days ^_^ I'm spending most of my time with my family, they're luckily on holidays now so we have time to be together. Also, Tyler's back to Barcelona! (Not for long though, he's leaving the 3rd... But hey, he's here now so...! <3)


I'm so hella derp and no regrets, lol

He's gonna spend New Year's at my place with some friends of my parents and my parents. Nothing special tbh but we're not party animals lol~~ Plus, everything's so expensive tomorrow night so, we'll just stay at home, eat the grapes and have some fun. And yeah, you heard right, eating grapes because... That's how we do it in Spain! XD

It's a really weird but unique tradition in Spain: We eat 12 grapes in the last minute of the year. If you never saw it, this video I found on Youtube basically resumes how we do it :)


We obviously need the TV, because that's how we follow the ring bells. It can be weird and fun at the same time hahaha. The thing is, you CAN'T look at your friends, family or people around you, otherwise you're gonna laugh and mess it up! After that, we just say Happy New Year! We drink champagne and we celebrate it. I'm also gonna post how was my New Year's the 1st January, and also I'm gonna make my own video (if I don't die of laughter! Haha) ^_^

So, what about your 2012? You guys have New Year's resolutions in your country too? We have em, of course. What I usually do when the year it's over it's, writing three different lists. One, it's a list of good things that happened to me this past year. The second, five bad things that happened this past year. And finally, my resolutions. So, there you go, my three lists for this 2012 and this upcoming 2013!



 5 good things that happened in 2012

-Went to the US
-Travelled around by myself
-Met amazing people! ^_^
-Became more social
-Re-took my snail mail / postcard swapping "addiction". 


5 bad things that happened in 2012

-Lost some people who I considered special in my life.
-Failed my TOPIK (Test on Proficiency in Korean) exam
-Quitted cardio
-Had some health problems in the last few months
-Felt alone (sometimes).




2013 Resolutions:


-Become a grown-up independent adult
-Pass the CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) exam
-Save money
-Gain weight
-Stay happy

So, I guess this is all for this 2012 ^_^ Despite all the bad things in my list, I can say I had a really nice year, so I shouldn't complain that much. How about you? You guys write lists like that too? Or this is just me? Haha. Well, I guess writing stuff like that makes me look back and see what I lived and what I'm looking forward to live. I'm just twenty and making mistakes is part of your daily life, but it's also good to see what you did wrong or what happened so you don't make the same mistakes in the future. OH! I'm glad I re-joined Blogger too, I really missed blogging and honestly I never had done it in this "personal" way. I kind of like it, so I'll be here for a looooooooong time now ;) Thanks so much everyone, thanks for reading every post I write and thanks again to make this possible. Not only followers, but also visits, friends and people who says they like my blog! Really, you guys make my day (and you literally made my year too!)! <3 I wish you all a Happy New Year, hope this new 2013 is full of joy and hope for everyone :)

Love you all! And oh, don't choke with the grapes, hehe~~
