2006 is coming! what is your New Year resolutions?

Postby emiko08 » Thu, 15 Dec 2005 12:33 am

i am really surprised by how fast 2005 went by. in about 16 days, it would be 2006. :)

have all of you realised? we always make a list of resolutions at the start of the year. but do we really work at it? or when there is a obstacle ahead which is difficult, do we just give up? well, nothing on this earth is easy. i hope everyone will not give up hope on your sticking by your resolution! :wink:

for my new year resolution, i hope to help the needy in 3rd world countries. we should learn never to always live in comfort. we must come out of the comfort zone as there is always somebody out there who is crying out for help.

so, what is your 2006 New Year resolution? :) good luck!

Ditto!
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Mine, in order of probability of length of time adhered to after Jan 1st....

1. Stop drinking......2 mins till glass filled again...

2. Stop smoking.....will really try with this, perhaps 2 weeks, but honest, will try....

3. More exercising....about 4 weeks, then I'll begin to find Eastenders riveting again...

4. New hobbies...the tango, bellydancing, walking, public speaking, writing to folks on death row, skydiving, tennis, mud wrestling....errmmm....about 0 mins.....

5. Trying to be sensible on this forum.....never..

6. Keeping the car clean...hmm, two Sundays of freezing weather when washing it then I'll bin that idea and it's the carwash AGAIN...

7. Try a new recipe a week.....I've stuck to this one this year and it's harder than you think to get the stuff for Yams with Lizard Sauce.....

8. And so it goes on, I think by now you'll have realized I'm talking a load of old cobblers and basically I'll go on as before, trying to be better but just being me......(is that weak or just normal?)

2005 has been both a colossal failure for me, and also a huge success. Never thought I'll be the one saying such "nonsense", but there it was...

Off school years back I made a promise to pass one professional exam every year. Sounds easy, but it wasn't. Anyway I did it. Until Dec2004 came along. B!tch of 4 years cheated on me. I went into a hell hole, and somehow I came back, all the while dragging my family there and back too.
Many things seem like a pattern now to me - including how close family responds to one of their own going down - real down. Even they get sick of you telling the same stories over, and then they pretend not to care.

All-in-all, it was 8 gruelling months. And somehow, when I got a little better (the real mini-milestone compared to the countless fake ones), I found a job here! Down south on this little island! And ALL BY MYSELF! 8)

That constitutes a HUGE personal success. I've always believed endurance is key. I endured the exams, and I endured the search, and I made it...

Well, with 16 days to go - it's probable I'm going to break that promise of mine. Looks like no new additions to my belt this year :roll:
