2015, the year Marty McFly traveled into the future in the movie Back to the Future. Also from that movie, 2015 can be pronounced as "two-thousand fifteen" or "twenty-fifteen". 2015 is my favorite year as it contains the number "5", my favorite number. They also said that the world will end in 2012. But I guess Judgement Day was 2 years late.
In the beginning, I wouldn't expect much in 2015. Looking back in 2014, there have been a lot of downs rather then ups. I did set up some goals for 2015 including, getting my diploma, Class 2 license, spend less than $900 each month and I'm happy to say that almost reaching the year's end, I have achieved close to half of them.
However, as I didn't expect much, I was already contempt with whatever was happening. And I went with the flow. Guess that this kind of mindset came useful in the coming months to come.

August 20th, this was when I decided to restart blogging again and started this blog with the theme "Dreams Make our Lives a Reality", my own longtime personal tagline. The decision to start blogging was actually a long time one, with myself being in the police force as the address "memoirs-of-a-singapore-policeman" was supposed to exemplify the fact that I'm a policeman. Seeing how being an auxiliary policeman doesn't really make a difference, I decided to start early and went on to use this address instead. With the many memories and happenings in my life its about time to document and catalog all my memories and pen down my thoughts.
Transfer of deployment within my company. From guarding the ST Kinetics installations to the motorcycle unit. September 4th was the first day. Since then, I never looked back and have participated in a variety of roles and job scope as a auxiliary police motorcycle officer. It was also the first time since the driving center I got the opportunity to ride a class 2A bike. Also on October 30th, we officially took over the LTA Traffic Marshal job from the rival company and I'm proud to say that I was part of the pioneer batch.

Sometime later, I also received a letter from the mail. It was from Temasek Polytechnic. I had just received my academic transcript, meaning that I had cleared my diploma and will move on to graduate on May next year!
|Jubilee Big Walk|
Our "first" ever walkaton. The New Paper Jubilee Big Walk. Something I have always wanted to done in a long long time but never done it. Finally after meeting my fiancee, I decided it was time for me to open up and do the things I always wanted to do. It's always better to do it with a partner.
I'd have to say, that unlike these past few years, 2015 has been quite memorable for me and there are many positive changes have been happening. Probably thanks to my new found love, I have became more inspired and open to more things in life. Despite being a thrifty person, I didn't mind spending time and money on doing new things (Specially with someone special).
The world around me is cruel and my surroundings expect me to conform what society has deemed and perceive as "normal" or "routine". During the first half, I have tried, to so call fit in. But instead, my vulnerability showed and people started stepping over my head and taking advantage of me. With the insistence and advice of my fiancee, I started acting otherwise. Never again will I allow anyone to tremble over me. I have lost many friends, as some of them cannot take it when I confronted them. But I couldn't care less about other people now, as they didn't even care about me in the first place.
As for the future, I don't know what to expect. But InshaAllah, with effort, hope and a little help from Him, 2016 will be extra special with lots of opportunities and goals to achieve.
Once again, Happy New Year, 2016, (1437-1438H)
