Yea, I know I’m about 12 hours early on this side of the world but whatever. I’m going to be busy the next few days so wanted to make sure this is published while I won’t be on. At least I’m on time in China. lol xD
Ah~, a new year. Year of the rabbit, too. Who here is born in the year of the rabbit, hmm? I’m curious to know cuz I don’t I have any “rabbit” friends, I don’t think. 83
Haha, anyways, before I go into a festive mood, I need to get a little pet peeve outta the way cuz I know it’s going to bother me every single year if I don’t say it at least once or twice in my lifetime.
People…call it the “year of *insert appropriate zodiac*” when it’s actually time for it and not at the beginning of every international new year. I know I might sound very petty about my culture sometimes but it’s not like I can sit still when others who don’t understand the significance of our traditions casually throw it around for fun. It just bothers me. xP
*sigh* Good, negative tiny rant over with, on to wishes and my goals planned for this year! I realized I never said anything about them in my New Years post but I’d rather say them for Chinese New Year anyways since it feels more personal. ^^
Firstly, I hope everyone in my family as well as my friends will stay in good health. That’s the most important thing. Money and profits are important, too, but health first, yes?
*sigh* Lately, I think a few people around me, especially those my age, are working a lot to get a paycheck. Well, I can’t say that’s wrong since everyone’s in the same boat especially with our current economy but make sure not to overwork or stress too much over it. Same goes for studies. It’s good to work hard but not to the extreme, k? ~.^
Next, I hope my parents will have a better year than the last. For my dad, I hope his business and investments goes well and that he’ll keep on getting “perfect” scores on all his inspections so he can come home and brag about them. lol For my mom, I hope she gets the nice stuff she wants, more day-offs and makes good use of her breaks to rest well…and I hope she sleeps on time since she’s always up so late watching her dramas. Your health, mom! xD;
To my wonderful grandparents, I’m praying for their well-being the most and hope that I can find some more time to visit them soon even with school coming up.
For my brother, who’s going to be graduating and going to college next year…get a cellphone, plz. It’s so inconvenient for everyone that you don’t have one. /P And I hope he gets into all the colleges he applied for and wish him luck and support in his future. Make us proud, Mr. 2060-SAT score! xDDD
To the rest, I’ll be praying for your happiness. So…make sure to be happy and don’t let my prayers go to waste! LOL xDD;;
Haaa…for myself, regarding family, I will try my best to become a better daughter and not just laze about at home all the time. I know it’s frustrating to deal with a bum such as myself so I’m going to work towards being more independent and achieve something that I can be proud of this year. *nodnod* ^^
In school, I hope I can finish my studies on time since graduation has been delayed by a year already. At the same time, I hope I can retain what I learned instead of forgetting them the moment finals are over. I also want to explore things outside my required curriculum so I may or may not be going to Hong Kong in the summer for study abroad if that works out. But most of all, besides remembering my Spanish, I want to finally start on improving my Chinese. That’s the foremost thing on my to-do list.
Among other things, I need to get my driver’s license soon… as well as complete Grade 7 for piano and work towards becoming a better swim coach.
Turning to the smaller stuff, I hope I can find another job soon cuz I’m planning to leave my current one, just don’t know when, and hope the next will be closer to my field. If not, I’ll go for volunteer or charity work. And my budget…I hope I can balance it out better for this year and earn more if I can.
Above all, I want to keep a good amount of free time for myself, one of the reasons being this blog and the rest for entertainment, reading, and if I can, getting back to writing. God, I miss writing so much, it hurts. ;____;
lol, wow, that’s a mouthful of “hopes”. ^^;
So yea, that’s the general. Apparently, according to my calendar, I have to watch out for any backstabbers as well. Not sure who’s going to back-stab me but will do. *nodnod* @.@;
Hmm, that’s all I guess. K, then, everyone, please enjoy the the celebrations and again, I wish you the best of luck, fortune and happiness as well as pray for your health and safety. Let’s get along for the new year, k?
