Late 2012 Resolutions

Hello there! *waves while clearing the spider webs and dust* I know it's has been only a week since I updated but my stats has been dropping drastically this time *stab self* So it's time to put my procrastination to an end!

I actually drafted this post back in June but I think it will be more like it to post it in July, in conjunction with the whole 'second half of 2012' thing, if you get what I mean. The next thing I know, July is ending in a few days as I'm writing this post now, MEH. I was searching for my first few posts in January to see what I've written for my 2012 resolutions since I've forgotten a thing about it #aging but to find that I didn't wrote any  this year probably cause I never seem to fulfill most of my resolutions for the past two years HARHAR IKR, typical me *snort*

Oh well, it's never too late! There's just something about 2012 that words can't even describe, like a good vibe y'know. I shall just list some and we'll see if I can fulfill them by the end of this year #challengeaccepted.jpg

1. Be thankful at all times, be it bad or good. After all these years of living and complaining, (or maybe a sign of aging or I'm more mature now *cough*), I start to appreciate things around me now, even if it's those little things in life. I always remind myself how lucky I am to have what I have now compared to those who are unfortunate.
#2. Eat healthy, workout and live healthy. Ever since I entered college, I've gained weight yet never did a thing about it. I always tell myself I should start exercising and go on a diet but it just never happens. Until earlier this year, I started stalking a bunch of fitblrs (fitness tumblr) and it totally changed my perception, slowly turning me into a fitness freak. Losing weight is not about starving yourself, it's actually more than that. There's a healthy way of doing it! It's not wrong to have good food once in a while to reward yourself but most importantly is to eat healthy :D I think I can write a long post about this and the workouts I did, I have so much more to say HEH Moving on... Of course I want to lose some weight, but the main target will be looking fit and healthy. I'm now 4kgs away to reach my UGW! I've been putting off my workout and eating healthy plan for a month now and I'm pretty shocked my weight still remain the same. Time to work my butt off again once I'm back in uni!
#3. Be optimistic and aim for the best in everything I do. I'm no longer a sophomore now, my third year of degree is starting in a week time. I seriously can't imagine I'm already half way through my course, but still I feel tiny at times comparing to those who resemble a walking encyclopedia in my batch. Time to buck up and feed myself with more knowledge, if and only if I manage to get rid that lazy habit of mine when it comes to studying. On a side note, I tear a bit everytime I look at my friends' graduation photos, they do motivate me in a way as well gosh I can't wait for that day myself. 2 more years to go, baby! I hope for the best but I need to learn to prepare for the worst as well. Never put your hopes up high or going too over-confident, it kills #truestory
#4. Save more, save less. I'm proud to say that I did manage to save this year, not a big amount but hey it's still an achievement for a big spender like me. I cut down on unnecessary shopping though it's still hard to resist at times HAHA I have to tendency to buy something every single time I visit a shopping mall. There's just forever too many stuff in my wishlist and it's never ending le sigh if only money grow on trees! Besides, I learn to earn my own money to buy instead of just asking from my parents. I guess I've already fulfill this resolution by 20%, I still need to save more T__T

#5. Be happy(!) to increase my lifespan and indirectly making me a better person. Less grumpy, less mean to everyone HAHA A day without a smile, is a day wasted (:
#6. Update my blog more often! HEHE and be more efficient despite my commitment as a student. Speaking of which, I haven't even blog about my family trip last Dec *slap self* People get bored easily, so you gotta update your blog frequently" - @vivyyusof ‪#NNBMY2012‬ This year has been quite a fruitful year for my blog so far that I've never expected in a million years. Someone just recently told me "Continue that good blog of yours. With such content, you never know the length you may experience under blogging.." That is INDEED encouraging. To me, I'm just a nobody-blogger but thanks to my humble blog that has gave me tons of opportunities besides widen my social circle and made me step out of my comfort zone. Perhaps it's time to come out with a new blog layout, a domain and maybe my first name card? Need more $$$ for all these too HAHA we shall see then!

I guess that's enough for now. 6 resolutions for the remaining second half of 2012 (: Hoping for a magnificent one! Life is too short, and too strange and too awful and too unpredictable to wake up with regrets and to not try to get more of what you want. Do what you have to do, for you. Love the people who treat you right and forget those the ones who don't. Believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, but it's going to be worth it.

A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step, you ready? Cause I sure am!


[Spoiler alert]: Kembara Media 1M trip coming up next!
