So this is the first post of the year 2009. Alas there were some unexpected news that dampened my festive mood. But I shall try to put it away and hope for a better year!
Anyway, here's a review of last year's resolutions and maybe a new set for the new year.
Try to procastinate less. Things should be done when there's time, not at the last minute. [hmm not sure if I managed to accomplish this]
Study harder for sem5's system courses and of coz, eos5! Must do well and get that elusive A!! [well I did do well even though it's not an A, it's okay]
Try to lose the weight that I put on when I entered med school. [yes done!! yay~]
Try to exercise more often. At least once a week. [I did persisted until the later half of the year when I started my 6 months long break]
Try to adopt healthier eating habits. More veggies, fruits and less carbs, meat. Less frequency of supper as I always go straightaway to sleep after supper. [haha fail! I guess I must cook more healthy stuff to eat when I'm in aussie la yeah]
Try to be more forgiving and not mind petty things. Frustration over stupid small things never did any good, did it? [did have some improvement but I think I can do better]
Must try not to make harsh (but sometimes truthful) remarks that I'll regret later. Be kinder! [ditto!]
Spend more time on the important things in life - my loved ones. [I think I spent more than enough time ade with my break]
Last but not least, make this year a happy year. It might be ordinary, but it will be a year full of happiness. =) [I guess I did accomplish this one!]
Compared to the previous years' attempts, I guess I did make some advancement with my 2008 resolutions hehe.
Without further ado, here's the new set for 2009. I don't think I'll write specific ones, my new set would be like a mix of hopes and dreams for me.
Do well in clinical school. Pass exams. Procure more knowledge. Adapt to life in Perth. Make new friends. Keep in contact with the old ones. Be independent. Eat healthily. Exercise more. Spend less. Be more patient. My loved ones are safe and happy. Be less petty. More tolerant of others. Procastinate less. Maintain my relationship well with dear despite being in a LDR. And of coz, the most important of all, BE HAPPY!
May all of us have a wonderful 2009! I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)
