Abit of backlogging to do, but first of all, I think that this post is pretty much important to me because it serves as a reminder to me on what I really want to do for this year.
Last year was a rollercoaster for me, too many happenings not only in work but also personally, that actually me lose my temper even more than I used to. Work has been taking much of my personal time that I feel that I have already sold my life to the company. (Singapore’s working culture is very very different from Japan) I don’t even think I have time to do what I really want.
Anyway, here’s a quick write-up on what I really want to do for 2016!
- Slim down!
First of all, let me clarify this!!! I have been losing weight (not by pills or whatsoever) thru Slim Couture’s Divine Slim treatment, but silly-me, or rather to say, greedy-me like to eat, so I actually lose much lesser. But then, I don’t see that much rebounds in my case. My sessions with them will be ending soon, and I intend to continue on once my busy period (now till end March) ends. Will do a proper write-up on this, because I think it deserves one! Am hoping to lose another 10kg to hit “my” desirable weight, which I think it is.
- Pick up Korean Language
Haven’t been going for my classes religiously, and ever since taking the classes at Daehan (located in Kembangan), I have never felt so stressed going to lessons. My classes at eZSam were fun to take, and location wise is somewhere in town, which is also somehow accessible. But classes at Kembangan were a ‘lil tad far out for me (this is a Singaporean’s mindset. When we say 30 minutes distance journey, we still complain that it is far. This is because Singapore is way too SMALL!) , and the journey takes about 45 mins or so. I always use the time to play games on the train, but when I arrive for lessons I start to get tired. Plus, work is taking a toll on me (was pretty busy last year because of some things in office, which I’m not allowed to reveal as it might be said as cyber bullying in return. Like since when was it ever cyber bullying?), so I decided to stop lessons at Daehan. After listening to Zynthia’s suggestion of taking classes at Ara Korean, where her friend/colleague is taking, I decided to take classes there. I still have yet to enroll because I haven’t find time to do so. Hopefully I can get it done before CNY.
- Brush up my Japanese skills
Alot of people have been saying that my Japanese is already good, but seriously, I don’t think so. Probably its the perfectionist in me that wants to make it as perfect. Plus, I’m not good at speaking formal or rather business Japanese. If you tell me to speak in casual Japanese, I definitely can speak, but when it comes to formal or business, I find it hard. At times, I get stuck at the throat, not knowing what to say next. Plus, there are many things that I don’t really know.
Yes, this is a must, and this year, instead of a yearly trip to Japan, I decided to add in Korea, because I really want to brush up my Korean language. European and American countries are out for now, but I intend to add them to my list of “want-to-travel” list.
- Get another expertise!
Having Japanese language as an expertise wasn’t something that I had expected because I was thinking that I may probably end up as a programmer (back then, with web programming as my base), but then somehow it ended like this. It’s good to have another backup because one won’t know what will happen next, and having a backup plan would definitely save your life. I’m still thinking whether to go back to studying programming since I really want to do some web programming, but thinking about how the market is filled with experienced programmers fears me alot. I’m not a good programmer, not a good executor, but someone who can come up with “once-in-a-blue-moon” type of ideas. Having another expertise, may or rather would mean another source of income which I am looking forward to!
I think my resolutions for 2016 is more than enough because I know I won’t be able to complete them all either. But definitely, able to clear 1 to 2 of them.
So how about your resolutions for the year? Have you set them yet? If not, why not set simple ones that you think you will be able to achieve instead of setting unrealistic ones?
