I am writing this in the comfort of my own rented room, not going to the city to watch the fireworks or with someone for new year’s eve. Instead I spent some time alone thinking to write a new post on my new blog.
I will tell you a bit about my 2013. It’s been a year since my big move from the west coast to the city. I kept a better job, rekindled with old friends, and keeping in touch with my family frequently now. Sure there are ups and downs and safe to say that I treasured and valued every moment that was this year.
I am thankful that I can live another day to witness another year passed by and to have the opportunity to learn and be more mature and wiser. Most of all, I am thankful for the company that I have and all the things that life had given me.
As cliche as it sounds, we all somehow are obliged to have resolutions for the new year. Because it is a new year and you want to start fresh or should I call it as a “new book”. You have given the chance to start over or re-write the way you want it to be and resolutions are guidelines for you to write your book the way you wanted it to be. You have the power and the decisions on what you will write down. Being said that, as much as you do not need a new year to have resolutions, well I guess I am that kind of people who still want to have that guidelines in her life for me to make this new year an interesting or colorful one.
My resolutions this year are not much, as I like to keep it simple while to stay focus on them. Some of the resolutions are the ones I am still keeping from last year. Last year are the year for me to settle down at this new place, new job, new situations so some of them are not yet fulfilled and this year is the time where I picked where I left from.
I hope for:
a) a healthier me: in terms of eating habits and physical wellness;
b) better sense of style: take more effort in dressing and appearance;
c) establish my blog: I made a commitment that this blog will be my stepping stone;
d) sew clothes: I will make my own dress, mark my words or so help me;
e) practice figure drawings; my heart throbs on drawing illustrations and I need to start it already.
And of course, little things like more love, more laughs, more photos, more art will be infused in my every day’s agenda. I will start on at least to finish a book this year since I’m having my own blog right now so I need to practice more on my writing, grammar, punctuations and whatnot. So read more is definitely is a must do. (My short-attention span side of me will not be grateful to hear this). Lastly, to stop procrastinate and being lazy. Breaking the habit is tough but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
Oh until then, wishing my readers a happy new year and wishes you all the best to come next year. Here’s to us!
