24th March. A date that no matter what will always be my favourite. This year's date is no different. In fact its slightly significant for me. Its the year I turn 24. If you've been around me long enough, you'll know what turning 24 is important for me.
I've been through my share of ups and downs over the years. This time, for the first time, I'm celebrating away from home and loved ones. I honestly never thought I'd be in this situation. Never planned to fly to Australia to study. For many months I pondered if I made the right choice. And for many months I thought it was the wrong one. Of late, I think it was the best decision I made at that point of time. This major move has taught me many things. Allowed me to learn more about life and myself. Made me appreciate the things I used to over look back in KL. Most importantly, I've learned that I've grown. I take care of myself better. I study (significantly more than I did in KL). I learn. I understand. I appreciate.
I might have still learnt all this if I stayed in KL. Probably later on. I might not even realize them ever. Life is unpredictable. We can plan for the best. Everything will unfold itself with time.
I lost my train of thought somewhere between there and here. So I guess I'll just make a short ending. It has been a great 24 year. The things I've done. People I've got to know. Places I've been. I appreciate them all. Here's to many many returns.
Happy birthday Raja Aliff.
