time for “New year Resolution”


We all make New Year Resolutions.

And we all have broken one or all our resolutions. C’mon one can’t be so strict also. Loosening one’s self leash is okay ๐Ÿ˜‰

So here is a list of my past year’s new year resolutions – which I successfully implemented and plan to continue doing so. (Three cheers for self) ๐Ÿ˜€

* no shop-lifting

* no lying on the face

* eat healthy – put on weight

* say NO to aerated drinks

* no begging-borrowing-stealing : maintain accounts

* call relatives at regular intervals

* lesser *lc*h*lย 

So now, the turn for this years’ resolutions. Here we go

* implement the vows taken on Bday

* shop lesser

* say less negative things/think positive

* pray more often

* wake up earlyย 

* work out once in a while (enough with putting on weight)

With that – I pray for a peaceful and blissful 2013 which brings harmony, success and wisdom in all our lives.


Have a good day y’all.

*An update from 2015*

  • implement the vows taken on Bdayย I don’t remember what it was i vowed on bday :/
  • shop lesserย no woman sane would add that to a resolution.ย 
  • say less negative things/think positiveย To a certain extent yes! I think more positive. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • pray more oftenย Have given up on this one I guess.
  • wake up earlyย Done ๐Ÿ™‚
  • work out once in a whileย There there!

Plus, I am still keeping the resolutions from way back in 2011 and 2012 ๐Ÿ™‚

Analysis of my 2012


new year 2012

So, we haven’t died and its almost the end of this superb year 2012. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Whoever suggested the world will end, kindly tell me the new date to look forward to. I mean, seriously, I was waiting for something to happen, something bigger than a Tsumani or Katrina.

So, I understand lots and lots and lots of things have happened this year – but as part of me keeping a journal of 2012 I am going to pen down whatever I can remember now of my past one year.
Like I said in the “My Purpose” section, I want to remember the good things and cherish them even after a few years. A pity – I have a not-so-good memory so I have a very few things to say about each month.
