Remembering 2009

December 29, 2009 at 1:15 PM

In just a few days, 2009 will be gone and 2010 will emerge. I still feel that 2009 went by so fricken fast.. it feels as if 2009 was just a week long. Loads of stuff happened in 2009 for me, good and bad.

Early 2009 (January – May)

The first 3 months I spent on internship, and my first look in the industry of filmmaking. This is the time where it was very challenging… I experienced

  • -rushing for deadline
  • -working nonstop on editing videos
  • -sleeping in the office
  • -getting to know some production crews and celebrities, new and the very famous one
  • -working on a movie directed by a well known Malaysia
  • -handled a 3 days Robofair event
  • -freelancing.. and getting some money
  • -being in a movie production.. and being an extra.. at least I experienced what it feels like
  • -Had someone fall in love with me O_o
  • -Went to my 1st Nokia event
  • -Japanese school reunion dinner and Ikeya sensei’s farewell party
  • -Almost gotten high with a DJ lol
  • -Dated a guy for one night only to get a call from his pregnant wife that he’s married, wtf
  • -Got 2 free caricature drawings πŸ˜€
  • -Poisoned my lung with smoke due to heavy smoking with the crews.. effing production people

Actually there’s so much more that happened during the internship. It was my highlight of the year because it was such an interesting experience. Was also yelled at by the head of faculty because I decided to change internship company on the first day, when during midterm evaluation she suddenly told me shit happens and it’s ok… wtf.

Middle of 2009 (May – September)

This is when things went chaotic. Back at college and there wasn’t a single day where I was free… I was overloaded with works – my own and college assignments. Had some fun time, had some rough time where there was arguments and shit like that but hey, it’s all part of life to make it interesting.

There’s like loads more that I can barely remember because there’s sooooo many things that happened in 2009, and happened so fast that it’s kinda hard to keep track of everything… couldn’t even breathe properly. There’s also some things that happened such as:

  • -The death of MICHAEL JACKSON!.. And other celebs like Farah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze, Yasmin Ahmad, Loloq, -Brittany Murphy and some I can’t remember..
  • -I’ve been keeping in touch with my ex school mates through facebook, and like majority of them got married this year
  • -Gained a lot of weight
  • -Downloaded so many movies

But year.. 2009 was good and bad at the same time.. it’s just that so much things happening at once. Well, goodbye 2009. I sure have quite a lot of memories. I’m making 2010 a good year for me.. and I wanna start fresh, start a new life and become a new me. I’m still thinking of my new year’s resolution.

Too bad I’m gonna be a year older. Bleh.
