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!

不知不覺來到你的門前
bu zhi bu jue lai dao ni de men qian
Unconsciously appearing at your front door
Vô tri vô giác đến trước cửa nhà em
我的心跳變得如此強烈
wo de xin tiao bian de ru ci qiang lie
My heartbeat has intensified
Trái tim anh lại đập loạn lên
世界己經因為你而改變
shi jie ji jing yin wei ni er gai bian
The world has transformed itself because of you
Thế giới này đã vì em mà thay đổi
OH BABY 你可發現
OH BABY ni ke fa xian
Oh baby, do you realize it?
Em yêu ơi, em có hay biết không?

雖然一直不見你的出現
sui ran yi zhi bu jian ni de chu xian
Although unable to see you continuously
Tuy rằng không thường thấy được em xuất hiện
我卻依然無法停止想你
wo que yi ran wu fa ting zhi xiang ni
Yet I still couldn’t stop thinking of you
Nhưng anh vẫn không có cách nào không nghĩ tới em
愛你的心因為你而跳躍
ai ni de xin yin wei ni er tiao yue
The heart skips because of its love for you
Nhịp tim nhảy vì tình yêu dành cho em
OH BABY 你可聽見
OH BABY ni ke ting jian
Oh baby, could you hear it?
Em yêu ơi, em có nghe thấy không?

我要給你全部的愛
wo yao gei ni quan bu di ai
I will give you all of my love
Anh muốn đem hết yêu thương cho em
不在乎面對多少考驗
bu zai hu mian dui duo shao kao yan
Not minding that I will have to face many trials
Không ngại rằng mình phải đối diện với nhiều thử thách
我要給你全部的愛
wo yao gei ni quan bu di ai
I will give you all of my love
Anh muốn đem hết yêu thương cho em
讓你逃不開愛的思念
rang ni tao bu kai ai de si nian
So that you couldn’t escape from the thought of love
Để em không thể nào thoát được ý nghĩ của tình yêu
