On March 1 2013, I got into a horrifying car accident. It was the scariest thing I've ever experienced. I was so shocked, I didn't notice that my earphones has still been playing music, 4 songs have passed since I got woken up by the impact before I noticed the sound in my ears.

That incident changed a lot about the way I see life. Suddenly, I knew what I wanted and that everything I have been worrying about the past few months were embarrassingly shallow. It also gave me that unofficial license to say what was on my mind. For a short while, I became someone who went on dates with different guys simultaneously. It was not fun for me at all, having to start again at every first date, but heck you only live once, right? Why not experience it all.

Today, I can confidently say that I have moved past that phase. After the last person I went on dates with, I finally stopped having that constant need to have a guy define my life. I know now it is not what I want at the moment, rather to get my life in order first and redefine myself. Yes, it may be cliche but this is what a near death experience will do to you.
