Well another year has passed by so quick it felt like nothing changed for me. In terms of career, life and everything else I think I was kinda stagnant without budging a bit. Although it's that way but it wasn't a terrible year, I got to travel to Singapore three times and it was all great. Visited the Universal Studio Singapore and had loads of fun there, wished I could have spent longer time though.
It was a year of stability and staying in my comfort zone all the time which made life boring, but in a good way. When I looked back at the resolutions that I made on 1st of January 2011, I didn't achieve any of it, which was sad. I told myself I was going to do it but then I end up with no time because I spend most of my time watching Youtube videos and TV Series. So this year I'm gonna stick to the old resolutions and add some new ones. So here it is:
Read 1 book in a fortnight and review it. Gonna change it to once a monthI realised that if I wanted to read a book a month then I won't achieve reading 50 books this year, therefore I have to change it back to reading a book either a week or just slightly pass it. Travel to Singapore and visit Universal studios (hopefully I will dare to sit on the roller coasters)I did sat on the Mummy ride Finished my Nintendo DS games that was released since 2009(totally abandoned it already)
- Continue learning Japanese myself (
pick up from where I left off last year) have to relearn everything again
- Share my learning experience on blog as often as I can
- Gain weight ( a big challenge for me)
- Stay fit (eat well, drink less cold drinks/ soft drinks, eat more vegetable) I did manage to drink less cold drinks
- Take more photos and learn photography and photo editing
- Learn eye make up techniques
- Learn new programming language
That's quite a lot to achieve but hopefully it's more doable. In terms of reading it really depends because I sometimes I have the privilege to read more and some nights I'm too tired to read. But I read chic lit faster than fantasy books because fantasy tends to be thicker than chic lits. This year there are a few books I'm looking forward to, Meg Cabot is going to publish a new series for Heather Wells, Sophie Kinsella has a new single story coming soon and Trudi Canavan (my favorite fantasy writer) is ending her Traitor Spy trilogy. Movies that I'm looking forward this year so far is The Avengers and Dark Knight Rises (totally love Christopher Nolan's works).
I hope this year I will grow more as a person, become positive (really negative person), challenge myself more (read 50 books) and live a healthier life (picky eater). This year I want to come out of my comfort zone and do something that I feel passionate, I've had some plans going on and I hope to make those plans come in fruition, so please look forward to some new things. I wish everyone will have a promising year coming this 2012, don't forget good luck, positive mind and healthy body. Thank you for reading and I will try to post more often in my blog. Happy New Year!!
