2024 - My Wishes

Posted / / Tyrone Ong

On my 20th birthday, I drove to the beach bunker to watch the sunset. I remember waking up at 4am overwhelmed with a lot of feelings. It was a new beginning, having failed my A-Levels study 2 months prior.

It was year 2016. Woke up at 4am and felt like I’ve felt everything I could’ve felt. Brought my Nikon D300s and a tripod to the garage, and probably spent about 45 minutes with Niko, she has always been quiet in the early morning. Being a rottweiler, she would be like a neko before dawn. It was the kind of energy I needed… I was feeling sighs probably every moment when I was awake. I was in a bad mental state.

Drove to the beach bunker alone at 5am. Most of my friends at that time wouldn’t be in Kuantan, a beach town, suburban.

Probably spent 3 hours there. Took some pictures with the beach bunker and the sunrise.

It was a new beginning.

I’ve talked about 2023.

Tower Quest being “out of the picture” for a while now, having this new job for a while now, it feels like a reset. Mostly financially, but also in terms of my stage in life, perhaps, due to now being considered being in the late 20s.

2024 is a smaller new beginning compared to 2016.

In 2024:

  • I wish to feel creative again
  • I wish to rekindle some relationships
  • I wish to return favors, to those who’d been helping me out in many many ways, and they probably don’t even know they did. But they did, and I wish to convey how grateful I am to them, my family being the first in the list.

In 2024, I do not have specific things I want to achieve. Like 2016, 2024 will be the year of healing. It’s a break I need right now.
