2014 Resolutions (Ticking off the list)

12.23.2014

HI! Yes, our news feed are starting to be flooded by loads of #throwbacks, #2014review and #2015resolutions.

But before moving into that, I am going to review my my 2014 resolutions. I'm writing down exactlty what I wrote in my notebook and see whether I've ticked off any of em.

1. Be healthy
- Breakfast
Overall I would say I did 60% of it. So I did quite well I guess. Mainly having breakfast in campus or cooking omelette is definitely my favorite.

- Wake up before 10am. 
I would also say I only started this in the previous 6 months. Not the best results but I have been trying to wake up before 12pm. I guess it is a huge leap for me :) Improving in 2015!

- Jog/swim once a week
Definitely guilty for this. Nope, didn't do this at all T___T

-Sweets (aka desserts) once a month 
WHICH IS IMPOSSIBRUUUUUUUU. T__________T


2. Love yourself more 
- Getting Tanya Chua album 
I am still the kind who loves collecting album but don't like spending money on it. This didn't happen because.... I don't know why either.

- Spend time alone once a month
This I would proudly say yes, I did this. I spend time alone at the coffee shop, reading/writing journals. :) You guys should try this too! Spend quality time alone, let yourself sink in a little ;)

- Getting a polaroid camera/Ipod as a gift.
YUP, did that! Got myself a Instax Mini Camera because I really love hard copies of my photos. :D

- Facial once every 2 months. 
Not really every 2 months but I went for facial every 3/4 months. So I guess I'm ticking this off as well :)

- Trip 
Yeap, did a small getaway to Penang. so tick!


3. Dance 
- Join classes 3 times per week
Ticking this off and I've been quite consistent. *proud*

- Handstand
um... guilty. IN A PROGRESS. Still need the wall as support thou.

- Bridge
Didn't manage to achieve this after I overdid it. My back hurts but now I'm back on track!


4. Studies 
OK this is funny. I plan to not do last-minute studying but, still.... I know there is no excuses to this. But things got in between the plans eg: ASSIGNMENTS.




The conclusion is, I'm ticking half out of my list! *APPLAUSE*  (ok maybe HALF applause) I used to NOT achieve anything from my list but this was a pretty good progress.

My tips in doing a GOOD new year's resolution is: 

1. WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU WOULD SEE EVERYDAY
I wrote it on the first page of my diary so I will always go through it every now and then reminding myself what I want to achieve

2. BE REALISTIC
like very realistic. Take into account your time and financial issues. By time, I mean you need time for your family, friends and YOURSELF (eg: you needa eat and sleep well buddy!) Financial wise remember you have to pay the bills and meals as well. Plan it well :)

3. BE SPECIFIC
this made a hella difference. I break them up in different sub-items. If I say I want to be healthy, what do you even MEAN by being healthy. So I broke it down into waking up early and eating breakfast.

4. NO DREAM IS TOO BIG or TOO SMALL. 
this ties back to the 2nd point. My dream is to be able to get a polaroid camera as a gift. This may sound very, funny to you but it means a lot to me! Walk at your own pace, you know what you want best.


So yeap, that sums up my year :)
It has been a roller coaster year especially towards the end of the year but I'm still glad at my achievements *pats shoulder* I'm now scribbling my 2015 bucket lists, and enjoying the last few days of 2014! *throw confetti*


HAVE FUN Y'ALL!
