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!

己經對坐了一夜 恐怕天色就要亮了
ji jing dui zuo le yi ye   kong pa tian se jiu yao liang liao
Sitting alone facing the night, fearing that morning would arrive
Một mình ngồi đối diện với đem tối, lo sợ rằng bình minh sẽ tới
我開始有點明白 我們的愛也要散了
wo kai shi you dian ming bai   wo men de ai ye yao san liao
I’m starting to understand a little that our love should also scatter
Anh đã bắt đầu hiểu ra một chút là tình của chúng ta cũng nên tan

你像過去那樣走來 緊緊用雙手將我環繞
ni xiang guo qu na yang zou lai   jin jin yong shuang shou jiang wo huan rao
You’re just like the past, taking a step forward, preparing to use your hands to envelop me
Em như hôm nào chuẩn bị dùng đôi tay để ôm chặt lấy anh
你的溫柔其實如刀 要我還你怎樣的笑
ni de wen rou qi shi ru dao   yao wo huan ni zen yang de xiao
Your gentleness is actually like a knife, how could I smile in return?
Sự ôn hòa của em giống như con dao, sao anh có thể cười đáp lại được?

我明明都知道 這將是最後的擁抱
wo ming ming dou zhi dao   zhe jiang shi zui hou de yong bao
I actually already know that it was the last embrace
Anh biết rõ là cái đó là cái ôm cuối cùng
你給我一個圈套 我不能跳不能遁逃
ni gei wo yi ge juan tao   wo bu neng tiao bu neng dun tao
The trap you gave me, I couldn’t jump or escape from it
Cái bẩy em bài ra, anh không thể nhảy hoặc trốn được

我拿什麼和你計較 我想留的你想忘掉
wo na shen me he ni ji jiao   wo xiang liu de ni xiang wang diao
What do I possess to haggle with you? I want to keep what you want to forget
Anh lấy cái gì mà tính toán với em? Anh muốn giữ lại những gì em muốn quên
ceng jing xing fu de tong ku de gai ni de gai wo de dao ci yi bi gou xiao
At one time, the strokes of our happiness and suffering should have been strike out
Đáng lẽ những nét vẻ sự vui lẫn khổ của chúng ta nên được xóa đi

我拿什麼和你計較 不痛的人不受煎熬
wo na shen me he ni ji jiao   bu tong de ren bu shou jian ao
What do I possess to haggle with you? The one not suffering hadn’t endured torment
Anh lấy cái gì mà tính toán với em? Người không đau chưa từng đau khổ qua
yuan lai qian zhe shou zou de lu zhi you wo yi ge ren xiang xin tian huang di lao
So it turned out that I was the only one who believed in walking hand-in-hand until eternity
Quá ra chỉ có mình anh là tin vào chuyện nắm tay nhau đi cho đến thiên hoang địa lão
