(this year was one of the best year. I promised to slow down but end up being much more productive than last year, travel much more, and had a lot of fun. It was indeed filled with good madness. I surprised myself every now and then. My resolution was pretty much fulfilled~ even more than I imagined at the beginning of the year. I can't thank enough..)
