Remembering Each Day

Ever since my angry/scare post about 2012, things have actually gotten better. In my monthly planner notebook, I try my best to write down the highlights of my day, everyday. It's actually one of my biggest goals - writing something good about each day of the year. And although it's only been about a week into the new year, reading my little notes made me happy.

Kinda random, but I bought this a few days before the new year when I went out on a mini date with Simmie and one of the things I wanted to do was buy something that I typically didn't buy. And I got this super cute coin bank! It's a freakin' pink bear! Made me happy :)

Basically, most of my week has been consisted of watching movies I've never seen before, like Ahjusshi and What Women Want. (By the way, What Women Want is probably my favorite Chinese movie because the characters work in a job that I DREAM of having. You should watch it to find out what that it haha. And it's a very modern and sweet movie.) I've also been watching bits of TV shows and documentaries. This is all due to Netflix. It's amazing. I'm discovering so many Chinese and Taiwanese movies that I've never heard of before and I actually LIKE them.

I was watching a movie before Jeero interrupted meh.
Shopping in Zara on the 4th.
And like I mentioned in my previous post, I got my nails done for the first time in my life! I really want to go again with my sisters and cousin as a girls outing thing one day and we could all chill and talk and then maybe go eat ice cream after or something. I can picture it perfectly!
My mom getting her gel nails removed lol
Also on Friday, my sisters and I slept over Simmie's house and we ate at Bertucchi's, which was really fun because we talked about future plans. The day after, we walked around her neighborhood and talked some more. I honestly can't remember exactly what we talked about, but I know that we were all happy about it.

After Bertucchi's, we all went to Anthropologie.
After walking :)
To help me with my new goal of recording the good things of each day, I download this app on my new iPhone 4S, which I got on the 30th, and it's called My365. It's originally a Japanese app and what you do is post one picture a day and it just stores it all. You don't necessarily HAVE to post each and every day, and if you happen to forget to post one, you can always go back one whatever day you missed! The layout is pretty cute and clean looking. And has a similar feature as Twitter; it shows how many pictures or posts you have, how many people you are following, and how many people follow you. So yes, you can look at other user's pictures! But I can tell that a lot of people cheat and find pictures online to make their lives look super dazzling or something. I don't care about the followers thing, I want to keep true to my life and pictures because I want to be able to look back and be like, "I remember that day!", or "huh, I actually have a pretty good life. I better appreciate it more". Another fun part of this app is that you can take pictures through it and it have a good amount of photo filters - but honestly, they're the same as instagram, vintage camera, this Chinese app that I use and others. 

There are a few other apps like My365, but I'm too lazy to delete this app and start again. My365 is good enough for me!

I also have this sticker on my iPhone.
Yeah, and I'm just loving my new iPhone. 

Each day has just been memorable in it's own way. And I want to keep up this momentum. Of course it's unrealistic to think that I won't have any bad or stressful days... And that's okay. In the end, all I want to have real proof, real evidence to show that I should appreciate what I have in my life. I want to create the mindset that I need to have a better day than the last. That way, it'll really make me live life to its fullest. And the only way to know that I have been living life to the fullest is by actually remembering the good and fun days that I've had. Am I wrong?
