2017..... I wonder what will it bring to my life? What will I do to be able to enjoy myself to the fullest? What kind of stupid mistakes will I make during the year? Will I discover my potential to do something with what I know to the world? Will I grow as much as I would like to? Will I meet new people that will be BFFs for life? Will I be more wise and able to judge my decisions correctly? Will I join the corporate ladder and start earning for myself? Will I move to a new place? Will I create more? Will I be enjoying my life or will I be depressed about something?
The answer is... no one knows. Even I do not know myself what I will do in 2017.
However, I would like to kickstart and change a little by a little to get to know myself more and take care of myself more this year. So, even if it is small, I know that I will be thanking a year later.
Read my recap of 2016 here to know what kind of experiences that I gained during 2016.
In 2017, ........
In 2017, I would like to read more often.
As a avid reader and a fan of everything manga, I haven't touched any of the books for a few years. The last book that I was reading was by Marie Kondo on the Life Changing Magic of Tidying up. To be honest, I'm still reading that book since I kind of got bored while reading half way. So, in 2017, even if it is 2 or 3 books, I would like to get back on reading stories and novels again and re-fall in love with them again.
In 2017, I would like to go to gym or walk more.
I have gained weight! Well, it is an obvious to me as I tend to eat late fast food at McDonald's. It is a very bad cravings and this year, I would like to get a bit fitter than my current self. I would like to enjoy what it was like to be fit and healthy again. I would like to go on a slow pace and start exercising a bit more often.
In 2017, I would like to study more.
As I'm now considered as a Master Degree student, I have to study hard to get better grades. I'm very aware that the boy is not here to help me understand my studies and teach me anymore since he is not continuing his studies. I have to study hard to maintain a good grades that I would learn properly instead of forgetting everything right after the exams.
In 2017, I would like to learn about myself.
I was a BIT student until last year. I was very sure that I'm very passionate about creating programs and softwares for companies and for the community. Now, I'm not so sure. I don't know whether my passions had shifted so I'm back to square one again. That is why I would like to learn what I want to do in life as a career and how to get to there. I'd like to know what I am passionate in and what kind of specialisation I would like to take part in.
In 2017, I would like to sleep early and wake up early regularly.
I'm very well known for sleeping late if you follow my blog. I normally update around midnight to 5 in the morning. I want to change that. I know what sleeping late does for my health now. So, this year, I'd like to start sleeping early and wake up early regularly without snoozing my alarm that sometimes does not go off in the mornings. I want to wake up early to prepare myself a good breakfast and maybe do a little bit of reading before my class and another good benefit is that waking up early means that I will not be worried about being late to class anymore.
In 2017, I would like to create more.
In 2016 December, I fell in love with blogging again and I have been filming and uploading regularly on YouTube. I would like to maintain that schedule and I would like to create more often. I'd like to go places that I've never been before and take photos of those amazing places and share with the world on my blog and my YouTube channel.
In 2017, I would like to travel more.
After travelling to Japan in 2016, something sparked in me. I didn't know that I love travelling. I want to take pictures of the amazing places that I go, I want to eat their amazing food, I want to indulge in their amazing cultures. With being said, travelling while studying full-time is not a very feasible way for many aspects. But in 2017, I want to save up money and travel more places that I've never been to, even in Singapore, there are some places that I've never been to. So I would like to travel more often.
So, this is my new years resolution. What is yours? Let me know!
