Year 2014 in Recap

You know what? I’m beginning to feel like the year in review from WordPress doesn’t even justify my accomplishments, especially this past year. So I decided to go all out on the rebellion and make my own post. It might not look as glamorous as WordPress’s version but at least it doesn’t make me look that lazy, lol.

Starting off with some general stats.

Total Posts in 2014: 139 – Yes, posts ONLY. But the number would have gone up if I counted the pages since I usually use ‘pages’ for fanfic updates, except if it’s a one-shot.
January: 19
February: 16
March: 13
April: 14
May: 6
June: 12
July: 8
August: 10
September: 7
October: 9
November: 8
December: 17

Times Updated on People on the Poll: 63 – Looking at the breakdown, it goes to show that I update on whoever I feel like, not having to do with the who is leading the polls, etc. It’s nothing new, it’s like what I said before. It’s not that I placed in the poll just for kicks or just messing with people. But it’s more like I was curious (like I mentioned in the past already) and try not to put myself on pressure as to update according to votes. What I do feel bad about is not updating on Vic and Janine or Nic more like I should have.
Wallace Huo: 8
Ady An: 1
Hu Ge: 1
Vic Chou: 4
Joanne Tseng: 4
Janine Chang: 2
Angela Chang: 1
Xiu Jie Kai: 1
Nicholas Teo: 1
Yvonne Yao: 3
Zhao Jun Ya: 16
Achel Chang/ Zhang Xin Yu: 5
Sophia Chou: 3
Van Fan: 1
Eric Suen: 3
Penny Lin: 3
Jacky Chu: 10
Bianca Bai: 1

Music Reviews: 13 – Not bad, right? I managed to empty the majority of the list I had up. So it’s something to celebrate here.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries: 22 episodes and 6 reviews – I could have done better here but still not too bad.

Fan Fiction: It has been a sad case here since I don’t know when. But I really do apologize for all those waiting for certain stories that have been lagging for the past few years now. It’s just that I didn’t find inspiration to do work with it and didn’t want to end up ruining it more than I already did.

  • Slanted Thoughts 2
  • The Dating Game 45 – Mad progress on this saga, right? Sadly, it could only be said for this one, lol.

Songs Translations: 12 – Hey, it’s a record here! I’m serious! Translations are hard! It’s harder for my case since I’m still learning in some areas.

Chinese: 9

Vietnamese: 3

Side Updates: 41 posts – YUP, these have been occupying my time as well. At times, I cheated and posted pictures only, but I swear, some of them were kind of too secretive to talk about. Or some were adaptations that I hadn’t read about yet.

  • Fu Rong Jin: 5 – It’s going to show like next year, right?
  • Favorite Scenes Saga: 1 post, but I did have a lot to work on so it wasn’t like I was slacking on purpose
  • Worth Watching Saga: Managed to publish all 3 I have in the background for the recommendation posts. Plan to launch another one this upcoming year.
  • Seasons in the Sun: 5
  • Love Knows No Distance: 2
  • Gold Pretty Girl/Dan Shen You Yue: 3 – Seriously, been waiting for this to air.
  • Dong Jiang Heroes: 6
  • Never Ending Love: 2
  • Royal Tramp/ The Deer and the Cauldron 2014: 4
  • Yuan Yue Wan Dao: 1 – Seriously, when is this airing?
  • Shen Yi Da Dao Gong 2013: 4
  • Throwback Thursday Saga: 3
  • Reasons to Stay Positive Saga: 2

What do I want to focus on for this next coming year? More on Couples posts and pages. Not to mention the “Special Profiles” pages that I had suddenly abandoned. There’s also the “All About” saga that I halted all of a sudden as well. So are these my New Year resolutions? No. I seriously don’t want to force myself into that, considering how this is just a blog to share all the randomness that I like. So putting pressure on that would lose the purpose of the blog itself even more. I’m just bringing it up because I want to say I’m not abandoning those completely yet. Although what I would want more is to finally finish some fanfics that I have been lagging since whenever. Wouldn’t that be something?

All right, have a great year next year, everyone! Happy blogging or stalking if you don’t blog! (LOL) See you next year for another random update of the wrap-up from me!

I don’t believe it 是我放棄了你
I don’t believe it   shi wo fang qi le ni
I don’t believe it, it was me who give up on you
zhi wei le yi ge mei you li you de jue ding
It was just because of one person’s decision without any apparent reason
以為這次我可以 承受你離我而去
yi wei zhe ci wo ke yi   cheng shou ni li wo er qu
Thinking that this time, I could accept your leaving me
故意 讓你傷心 卻刺痛自己
gu yi    rang ni shang xin   que ci tong zi ji
Purposely hurting you yet I’m just hurting myself

一個人走在傍晚 七點的台北City
yi ge ren zou zai bang wan   qi dian de tai bei city
One person walking as night falls, 7:00 in Taipei City
等著心痛就像 黑夜 一樣的來臨
deng zhe xin tong jiu xiang   hei ye    yi yang de lai lin
Waiting for a heartache is just like that of a dark night approaching
I hate myself 又整夜追逐夢中的你
I hate myself  you zheng ye zhui zhu meng zhong de ni
I hate myself for chasing after you in my dream during the peak of the night
er ming tian zhi ci ku qi de xin
And when tomorrow comes, it will only cause the heart to cry

怎麼才能讓我告訴你 我不願意
zen me cai neng rang wo gao su ni   wo bu yuan yi
How could I tell you that I was unwilling?
jiao bi ci dou zai gu du li ren zhu shang xin
Teaching each other that solitude could endure grievances
我又怎麼告訴你 我還愛你
wo you zen me gao su ni   wo hai ai ni
And how could I tell you that I still love you?
shi wo zi ji cuo wu de jue ding
It was my own erroneous decision

我要告訴你 我不願意
wo yao gao su ni   wo bu yuan yi
I want to tell you that I was unwilling
jiao bi ci dou zai gu du li ren zhu shang xin
Teaching each other that solitude could endure grievances
我又怎麼告訴你 我還愛你
wo you zen me gao su ni   wo hai ai ni
And how could I tell you that I still love you?
shi wo zi ji cuo wu de jue ding
It was my own erroneous decision
