it's true, like learning, living is rowing uphill----to stop is to fall back. 2009 was a good year for me. I wanna keep the momentum going.
I realized last year that being too ambitious makes you unhappy but I cant stop at this point. Not now that I'm in the middle of doing certain projects. Maybe that's why it was hard for me to bid goodbye to 2009 since there's a carry over of my goals last year.
this will be a make or break year for me.
so here is my must do list......
1. make my HEALTH a priority
I'm only 29 but I feel like 49. I'm even worse than my father when it comes to feeling pains all over my body. My physical condition has degraded after 3 years of sedate lifestyle. Not that I have a serious sickness but I just feel that I need to exercise more. It's true, when young, people lose their health to gain wealth, when old, they lose their wealth to gain back their health.
2. get institutionalized.
Not that I can keep it a secret ayt? This is my shot at taming my restlessness.Keep posted.
3. complete the basic appliances and furniture at home
a source of frustration and at the same time joy to me. Frustration coz I wanna buy gadgets instead but joy whenever I go home and see all of it in place. masakit nga lang sa bulsa.
4. finish paying for my motorbike.
It's loaned for 18 months and I still have until December. lapit na. sigh
5. travel abroad.
can't wait for the follow up of our Singapore trip last 2008. I'm eying HK-Macau, although Teresa wants Saigon-Bangkok. Either way, I have to travel abroad.
6. Finally set foot in BANAUE and SAGADA.
it's my dream. since watching the movie "don't give up on us"--I always imagine how Piolo and Juday spend lazy hours there. I want to take time out from work, stay there for a few days and just let time stop. Anawangin and Nagsasa are also on the list.
7. Climb Mt. Pinatubo or Taal.
I have always been afraid of volcanoes but I am really curious about the photo perfect summit of Pinatubo. If I can't, I can settle for Taal instead.
8. buy Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38
Taking pictures make me happy, but I end up being frustrated most of the time because my camera is not good enough.Time to invest in a more expensive one. I can't wait to have those crisp photos.
9. an LG touch phone
I'm now a big fan of LG after the purchase of an automatic washing machine which I love so much. I let it do all the dirty work and just come back to collect the dried clothes to be hanged. A touch phone ( even the most simple version) will do great.
10. work abroad
what took me so long?I guess some people are just not lucky But I will make a way to find employment overseas. Not so much for the money, but for the experience. To break the monotony. I'm tired of teaching online. A change in environment will be at most welcome.
There, I said it. I hope to succeed. I wish myself good luck~~~~
