My year started on a horrible note. Actually it rolled over from the 30th. My moods were all messed up over the place and I really really tried to snap out of it but I just couldn’t and so it followed into the new year up until today.

Shortly after most of the festivities, I started thinking of my plans for the year. For the first time in a while, I really don’t have specific goals and I think it’s okay. Although I’ve been beating myself up on several occasions, I still think I have enough grace period to actually do something about it. A mean there are 29 days left in January even though the period of faffing about is long gone.

In the meantime, 2015 screams two words:

Final Year!!

Inasmuch as I don’t like to think about it mostly because I’m crawling behind – thanks to a skipped semester – I’m gonna graduate next year. It’s overwhelming albeit frightening. I’m still inconclusive about a lot of things and so I’ve decided not to talk about it for now.

Translation: Postpone till the final year.

Meanwhile, I’ve made mental notes of a few things I would like to do this year.

I’ve decided to stick to my list of 22 things so I don’t have to juggle both lists at the same time.

As usual, I’m reading 50 books or more this year. I’m selecting and exploring from a wider range of options; just basically reading deliberately.

I’m hoping to get another job this year. Something related but different. I’m hopeful about gaining more experiences and growing whilst at it.

I also want to experiment a lot more. I hope I can lay my hands on more materials to make different products. As I said earlier, this is basically a trial and error phrase until it’s perfect enough to move to the next stage.

I’m gonna make an effort to work-out properly. I’m tired of making excuses so I’m really hoping I can do something about my fitness.

Quite a bit of my goals are static such as my relationship with God and my French fluency so they’re passed from year to year.

Basically, I’m just hopeful really. Overtime, I’ve learnt to lower my expectations to avoid disappointments and just live deliberately.

Bonne année !

  1. Aww, sorry your year started on a not-so-sweet note. But thank God you’re alive to see today, innit? I’ve been sick since New Year’s Day and was about to dive into a sea of complaining, but I realized that I complain a lot and so I’m mentally trying not to going forward. My coworker/friend lost her mum less than a week before Christmas, and her sister is still in hospital. While I’m praying for her family, I’m also just thanking God for His grace because I don’t know if I would be able to handle something like that.

    You have a lot to look forward to, and I pray everything goes accordingly.
