2011 is almost here! Got your resolutions yet? Here are mine!

Fail attempts to capture the '10' from 2010. Kind of looks like 11 right?
  • Learn to drive
  • Get a job
  • Study harder
  • Volunteer
  • Write more
  • Blog more
  • Keep a personal diary because I do not remember what happens to me every day
  • Take more photos
  • Make more friends
  • Be much nicer to the friends I already have
  • Be much nicer to my family (I don't know if you know this but I'm pretty mean sometimes)
  • Cook more
  • Bake more
  • Eat more fruit and vegetables
  • Eat any form of instant noodle less (which will be hard because sometimes it's the only thing left in the house!)
  • Get better at Japanese, Korean and Tagalog. Maybe English too. Some days I feel like I'm just mangling the langage
  • Go overseas!
Too much? XD


2010: In Review

I remember not doing much and being at home mostly. Lack of money and well, just lack of things to do. Highlight of this month was going to the Jenolan Caves. I went with my cousins and their childlike enthusiasm was just so wonderful to see in a month when I wasn't feeling so great about some things.

I dyed my hair and met up with lots of friends. I watched a film but I don't remember which one. Birthdays were had, people left.

Arashi no Shukudai-kun ended! I watched it live on KeyHole and oh, I think I may have cried. I also may have graduated from my undergraduate degree.

Easter. I turned 23.

Earlier in the year my friends and I had weekly dinners and then later in the year that just phased out. Good friends and good food.

End of first semester of law school. Trying to get through exam period, my younger brother's birthday and I left to go to the Philippines! I hadn't been there in 10 years.

Spent most of this month overseas in humid weather and being unable really to travel by myself. Kept having to be chaperoned by my dad or some random cousins that I appeared to have. I think the Philippines would be the highlight of my 2010. That and Christmas.

Start of second semester. Looking back I should have tried harder. But I say that all the time about everything. I think I should make that an ongoing resolution.

No real idea at all. Must remember to write stuff down in 2011. Can't always rely on check past tweets to see what I did that day.

Cousin's birthday and just a whole bunch of uni stuff.


One of my favourite times of year because of Christmas. But my favourite month was kind of marred by the appearance of summer school. I'm currently in some sort of summer school hell but it's New Year's Eve Eve (at the time I post this) so I can't be too sad!

Overall, it was a pretty static year for me. Although, it seems like it always is. In 2011 I want to do things that make my heart pop out of my chest.

Goals and resolutions for 2011 will be posted up tomorrow or as soon as I can think of them!


Merry Christmas!

Somewhat belated.

I spent Christmas Eve with family, at church, then with family again as we opened up gifts at midnight. At least that was the plan. The distribution of gifts took longer than expected. Christmas just has this completely generous feeling about it. Good will and all that jazz. Even though I was in some what of an odd mood to begin with being surrounded by so much family and general happiness - just infectious.

And my favourite present this Christmas is my brand new Fuji Instax 210 Wide. A gift from my brother. I'm using the film sparingly since I only have 20. It's kinda big but it's worth it for the size of the picture. Though, a Mini is tempting though. Also, it seems that there's no photo albums specifically made for Wide film like there is for the Mini. I'm just putting them in a regular sized photo album for now until I can think of an alternative. I also got an Esprit wallet, some jewellery, some bath stuff, a brush and some money (my Aunt's overtime pay which was $14.50. Which was cute because the adults were all handing out money to kids and I don't count because I'm nearing mid-twenties and am not a kid XD).

Oh, Christmas. The next one is so far away! Still, there's New Year's Eve and New Year's Day then Australia Day and a few months after that my birthday! Still lots of other magic days left!
