It’s crazy how time flies, almost half of December went by now. 2-3 weeks after this, we’re going to enter 2017 *shivers* I felt like it was just a month ago that I posted this one up on my IG
Literally on the 1st of January 2016.
2016 end means I no longer have to use this planner ever again. It’s going to be my past and just by thinking of it, my heart hurts. I’ve never felt so attached to any planner (minus my college’s planners which were kinda necessary for us to have lol) before, this one’s waaaay more personal than any planner that I used to have. I literally carried this most of the time, especially when I started uni. I wrote everything inside, how my day was, my to-do-list, scribbles of my hauls on the box of the day it arrive, mini entries (of this hot and handsome guy that I saw..didn’t see him around anymore guys pfftt), pending assignments, pending blog posts *coughs* and the list just goes on.
The awesome thing about writing everything down is that you get to read and remember it over and over again. Now that it’s December, I decided to re-read every single thing that I wrote in this precious planner from dUCk (of course hehe) from January up until now. I smiled, a lot. I could yet to say the overall of my 2016, but so far I’ve been blessed guys. True there were bad days and I even hit the rock-bottom by failing my Syariah and didn’t get to do double degree, but because of that I gotten myself a seat in unissa even though I only get to do HND. But that’s okay, so far I honestly feel so blessed to do this course ’cause just like what my tutor said, we’re lucky enough to receive extra knowledge before doing the degree so Alhamdulillah hehe.
Other than entering uni, I am also being reminded of my first ever dUCk battle: the blooming peonies. If you guys realise this, part of chick, which is actually short for chicken (my fav food, ever), the blooming is actually taken from the blooming dUCk, which was my first dUCk battle ever. I feel the need to use it as the name of my blog so that I can constantly remember it, the silly battle for a scarf hehe. But honestly, looking from a different perspective, it actually taught me something. If you want something, you have to work for it. Nothing ever comes easy, everything needs effort. Just like entering Jannah, you won’t enter it easily just by believing Allah is the only God and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His messenger, you need to work for it. Ok let’s not get deeper into it but my point is, I just want to be constantly reminded that to get and to be who you want to be, you need to work hard for it. The effort counts, Allah sees it. In the end, even though you didn’t get what you desire, at least you’re actually moving forward. It’s better than just staying the same right? Teehee
My blog also born in 2016!!! I’ve been a blog reader since I was 11, no kidding guys. My favourite blogger was actually a local blogger. Do you guys know mr. Kurapak? Ahh good old days when he still run kurapak.com hehe. Me and Boss Chick would load his page on my nokia phone and had fun reading his hilarious stories (which some of it kinda rated..but oh wells we all mature differently HAHA) laughing till our stomach hurts. I remember this story about bats in the restaurant the most, my fav!! Won’t tell you guys ’cause it’s a bit nasty bahaha. Anyways, I’m an avid blog reader since then, exploring more bloggers from around the world until today, I can’t even remember them all haha. After years and several attempts to open and run (free) blogs, this blog is finally born. My most precious baby, ever. Hope you guys love it as much as I do hehe
I also stumbled upon the day Baby Riri came home (written in inky pen with caps lock haha), the fv bridal fashion show that I got invited to but didn’t get to attend, my first ever Aere top that I bought back in February, D reposted my pictures twice and everything good and nice are clearly written in this planner and I’ve never been so so glad to have this planner as part of my life.
Kinda distorted a bit but I love it still, it kinda gives that old and nostalgic vibe ain’t it? I also stick these sticker price/barcode thing that FV sometimes gave (the ones that they didn’t stick to the plastic wrap of course I’m not that loco la guys) as a constant reminder that I need to slow down with my online shopping game hahaa.
Oh God I’m all emo now after reading my own days LOL. It was mostly amazing guys MashaAllah, all super duper thanks to the Almighty Allah swt. I don’t deserve most of the things that He gave me in this world yet He still spoils me. Can’t imagine the life in the Hereafter…a closet full of Birkins, Speedys, dUCks and all, or even better! InsyaAllah.
December’s quote, a reminder for me to reflect and renew. To think of it now, I’ve so many personal things to be renewed, like my relationship with the Quran, my attitude in giving back to society etc. Sighs I’ve so many flaws, hopefully I can renew myself even better in 2017. Thanks for the reminder, D!
All and all, though I’ve to let go this planner really soon- I seriously need to sound less dramatic I mean hello Miza you just need to put it back into the box and let it sit peacefully on your shelf HAHA. Why am I so emoooo.
Anyways, of course I’m going to get a new planner for the new year! And of course it’s going to be a dUCk planner #DUHH hehe.
Look at this beauty guysss, I can’t wait to scribble on it my fingers are literally itching to write right now haha.
Is that pink that I see?? Still contemplating whether I should get another pink or different colour for 2017…what do you guys think?
I know I know the controversy from The World Map dUCk has yet to calm, but despite all that, I still love this brand and I’m going to continue supporting it. Though it’d probably comes the day where I could no longer afford to buy the scarves anymore (but I’d work hard for it anyways heee), I’d still support and write about this brand on this blog (D or Vivy or FV did not pay me to write this, if you guys ever wonder, I write everything in here out of love, just a clarification hehe). Screw those hate and nasty comments, I’m a proud dUCkie and no one can change that.
Are you guys going to get the planner too? Highly recommended so you guys can feel all emo by the end of 2017, just like me right now bahaha. I don’t think D’s going to limit the quantity of this planner, I’m sure she wants everyone to own it and let it be part of our lives. Can’t promise you guys about the battle to get this though..but just a suggestion, just buy a planner. I saw some buying all colours for 2016’s planner during the release. Not to be rude but…WHY…ok maybe for collecting purpose………alright I’ll stop here lol
You guys know where to get this *yawns* heee. D kept on hinting that she’s going to release it soon enough, so keep your eyes on the updates through her Instagram. Hope to see you guys feeling all physically and emotionally attached to this new planner *winks*
