Goodbye 2013

Here we are, saying goodbye to this 2013 and I’m not sure how to feel about it, given that my Christmas was a total fail, not that I didn’t enjoy partying with 1000 people and 30 rapers but THAT wasn’t a real Christmas party, anyway, Facebook keeps asking me if I want to see my “2013 review” and NO facebook, I do not want to do it, instead, I decided to make my own end of the year review (this should be fun, right?)

I started this 2013 having pizza with a couple of friends (lame!), and starting a new job weeks later, you know how some people say “If you start the year without a job, that’s how you’ll finish it”?, I believe it now!, anyway, January’s highlight was my new job,,,exciting! Not really.

February, March, April
I honestly don’t remember much other than stressing over some legal matters, working because we had to and just constantly trying to meet our friends (that didn’t work out very well).

May is still something I don’t feel brave enough to talk, it was the 1st year anniversary of my mom’s passing and I just remember it as a blurry month…

My birthday, I remember being VERY against any kind of celebration, not because I’m old, but I felt like there was nothing to celebrate, I would even ask my sister not to mention or say anything on that day; I only remember my sis edited some pictures of my mom to congratulate me, that hurt and made me happy at the same time, also, it was the month our “plan” started taking shape, we would leave Mexico to explore the “world” (If you are a YG fan, yes, when I say WORLD I’m talking about Asia –at least for now-), we booked our tickets to Japan and were getting ready for it, also, a day after my birthday I quit my Job!

Was a BUSY month, packing one’s home is a bitch, I knew we were hoarders (specially my sister and my mom) so, it was a trip to pack and storage what we TREASURE, yup, those 3 year old movie tickets went to the garbage!, not only that, but deciding what to bring on our backpacks to this trip AND selling the rest of our stuff and making sure we had everything in order, PLUS figuring out what would we do in Japan and Korea, top that with us trying (again) to meet our friends to say Goodbye and them being very “busy” to do so, at the end, I felt most of them didn’t give a damn we were saying goodbye for a long time L, we finished July up in the air, we flew from Mexico to Narita on the night of the 29th and spend my mom’s bday (30th) closer to her^^ and arriving in Japan on the 31st (seems like it took forever).

August was spent sweating our souls away in Japan’s crazy summer, volunteering, traveling around and me leaving clothes EVERYWHERE in Japan because my backpack was way too heavy and I just couldn’t deal with it anymore, despite the heat, humidity and back pain, I loved the experience of volunteering and taking such a long trip with my sister, despite the fights we had (we have plenty of them, we are used to them but still love each other to death), I feel like this trip made me grow up, gave me a new perspective and just made me feel funny about the whole leaving Mexico thing.

This is where the fun begins… I was OVERLY excited about Korea (obviously) and as soon as we landed @ Incheon; I felt at home (pleaaaaase, don’t ask me why), Korean language felt so familiar (no, I still can’t speak Korean lol) and just knowing how to move around made things easier, we traveled around in Seoul, went to TV shows, met awesome people and just tried to adjust to our new “Korean” life.

My sis’ birthday!, we celebrated with a cake by the Han River and the next day we took off to Jeju for a 3 day vacation of our vacation!, the end up our trip was somehow also the end of this “comfortable” life of us just traveling around, paperwork came, real work came and went…

Love/hate it, I was very happy working but also felt very pressured regarding our future in Korea, somehow things went down the wrong path and November ended up with the worst taste every, is like, when you are having an amazing cake and suddenly there’s a piece of egg shell (lol), the last days of November we were in panic because we had to leave Korea in a hurry and ended up meeting our friends to say goodbye (See?, good friends meet to say goodbye!! Haha), some were sad about it, some were pretty sure we were going to meet soon and 1 (our baby bro) was very dramatic about it, he messaged me things like “Why is this happening to me??” or “Are you kidding me?” and “I’ll be a good brother” LOL, how not to love him, right?, we spend our last week living in a friends “studio” with 1 electric heater, sharing a sofa bed and having to sleep with all of our jackets on because of the freezing cold lol, we are still VERY thankful with our Oppa (lol) for allowing us to use his place, cooking breakfast, getting us dinner, driving us around and taking us to the airport^^.

We AGAIN packed everything and again got rid of things we “didn’t” or wouldn’t need anymore (summer clothes, flats, etc), we were going to Japan and would spend a couple of months there, or so we thought, that’s how we ended up with 20kgs backpacks and some other things on our flight from Seoul to Tokyo. Honestly we both felt really miserable being in Japan (And you must know, my sis LOVES Japan), I was in a shitty mood and wanted to come back home to Seoul, a few days later, we were making new plans and the future seemed bright, we kept changing our minds every day as to what to do next, but at the end we decided to come back and give it another try, we don’t really have anything to loose, right?, and that’s how 8 days later we flew back to Seoul, where we were welcomed by a beautiful snowed scenery and us feeling VERY confident, I guess, at the end it was a good thing we had to leave Korea like that, we were living a “very” comfortable life and not really putting much effort to it, now, what happen is up to us and us only, we have our own apartment (that we now love!) and are working our way to a brighter future, so, wish us luck and YOLO!!!!

Best purikura in Japan -can't turn around the pic lol-
I also want to take this time to thank everyone who’s been with us throughout this journey, thanks for sticking by us and supporting us, thanks to those who offered us help or a word of advice, I love you all, and thank you readers, I know you are out there (I can see my stats lol), might 2014 be an AWESOME year to all of you (and us!) and… let’s do this!

Last but not least… THANK you perritow, for being here with me, ALWAYS, I love you for ever and ever!

Fighting! Damn I think I’ve been in Korea too long lol, but I love it!

Hope this 2013 was as awesome as mine ours and may this 2014 makes you HAPPY!
