Out with 2011, In with 2012

Well Hello Hello Hello

In the third week of the first month of 2012, I am writing my first blog of the year. Why? Let's say I have been here and there and trying to figure myself out.

Now, I can't start a new year blog without posting my resolutions. Except that I consider now resolutions are overrated, however, looking at them, gives me something to think about and look back next year. Let's go over my list of resolutions, shall we?

1. Stop going to bed at 4am and getting up at 1pm. No matter how nocturnal of a person I am, I need to get used to going to bed early and waking up early because when I get a job, I might need to wake up early EVERYDAY (my heart just sank as I wrote that word)

2. Get a job. That is my main priority this year. I need to try harder to get a job. Send like at least 5 applications per week. Need to get my ass in gear and stop making excuses. Need to find a full-time job. I have no time for part-time or internships (although they could be very helpful).

3. Save money to go to Disneyland!!! Last time I went to Disneyland was when I was in like grade 4. I am a grown woman now and I am sure I will enjoy Disney more than I did before. You have No idea how BADLY I wanna go to Disney. Go on rides, meet Disney Characters, etc. Note to self: need to get an American Visiting Visa first.

4. Say YES more. I realized that I am letting life experiences slip through my fingers because I can always come up with an excuse for not going somewhere or not doing something. Next time a friend invites me somewhere, I gotta say yes - unless the event I am invited for is gonna suck for sure or I physically can't attend.   Life is too short, gotta learn more from my experiences. I'll be the next YES MAN...except that I am a woman.

5. Ironically, my 5th resolution is to safe money. It's ironic because there is not much you can do outside without spending a dime. I'm running low in coloured-bills supply and so are my parents. So it's time to get a gig and pay for the phone bill myself.

6. Talk to my parents more. They are getting old and it's been a while since I have been with them physically. They complaint that I don't spend enough time talking to them because I am too busy dating. It's true. Mom's got a point. But sometimes it's hard to talk to her when she gives me 40 min long speeches and doesn't even realize I am away from my computer. I have tested that theory. However, I don't mind listening for hours to her stories when she was younger and how she escaped from China to live in Costa Rica. Or how my dad swam with jellyfish.

7. Start a writing project. Like a play, or screenplay, a bio or something. Need to get my name out there somehow. I wanna be famous, like everybody. I can also practice on my writing.

8. Suck it up and take the garbage out.

9. I should try to stay active. My goal will be losing 30 lbs. But this winter seems kinda....challenging. It doesn't help that me and Jacob collect and eat candies as a hobby.

10. On that note, cutting on the sweets

11. Say hi to friends every now and then. It gets lonely without them.

12. Stop watching The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, The Bachelor Pad. I need to feed on drama somewhere else, but not from my life.

13. Quit playing Sims World, Farmville, and games like that cuz they do me no good. Unless I wanna become a farmer, which is not the case.

14. Explore the world. There are so many things I need to experience and a whole bucket list I need to check off. Gotta do them while I'm young. Need to explore my hidden talents, hidden interests, hidden career preference, hidden ambition, etc.

15. Find a hairstyle I can finally love. People who are non-asians come to me all the time saying things like "your hair is so nice, it's so smooth and straight. you can do anything with your hair!" Umm...you really CAN'T DO ANYTHING with this hair. It's so straight and thick that no matter how you style it, it always comes down. My hair is so dull and boring. Needs some partying going in every strand of hair.

These are my resolutions. Will I achieve all of them? Probably not. Resolutions are not meant to last all year long. If you don't believe me, ask people who get gym membership at the beginning of January.
