2014, here we go!

So far, 2014 hasn’t been too good for me. We’ve been having family problems as we always do, since my dad is an abusive alcoholic. For now though, it’s like the calm before the storm but I’m tired of tiptoeing around it.

Still, I can’t believe it’s 2014 already! While I might be a little late in getting my NY resolutions up and I’m sure everyone is sick of seeing them, I’ll share mine :D

  • Study hard and become a pharmacist

Right now, I’m an intern, working at a pharmacy to complete my hours so I can take the Pharmacy Written and Oral Board exams. It’s been hard juggling working life as well as study…so far I haven’t been studying at all but I got to motivate myself to :)

  • Save money and buy an investment property

I’m only 21 (turning 22) and just started full-time work but my sister and I want to buy an investment property. Or really, just a property to move out so we can get away the aforementioned issue. Money’s quite tight at the moment as it is, so I’m going to try and budget myself.

  • Be happier and love myself

There is always something that I’ll wish that I could change about myself but slowly throughout the years, I’ve started to accept myself. This year will be no different :) Slowly, but surely, I’m going to build my confidence!

  • Enjoy life

As I shift into full-time work, I have less time for myself. I don’t want it to just be: Wake up > Work > Go home. I want to be able to enjoy life to it’s fullest~

So instead of studying when I get home, I’ve actually been web-designing! Yeah, like I said, my first new year resolution isn’t going too well hehehe. The designs aren’t for any upcoming projects (that I know of yet ^^). I was considering of selling them for extra cash but I’m not sure~

Leafy Love

First design that I created in December – named ‘Leavy Love’ for now.

Chase the Sun

Second design I made yesterday :) This is the one that I’m more fond of.

How’s everyone’s 2014 and New Year resolutions coming along? :)

The Work Zombie

For the last two weeks or so, I’ve been adjusting to full-time work. It’s not so difficult per say, but a change is a change and it’s taken some time to realise that work is unfortunately going to take a lot of time of my life :( Basically my schedule these days are: wake up, go to work, get home, eat, shower, study, sleep and the process starts again. I’ve been trying to manage my time a little more efficiently so that I get some ‘me’ time so I don’t go crazy :)

At work, well, I’ve been there for four years already so I’m okay with the environment and everyone :D All apart from my manager it seems. We’re awkward with each other – I get the feeling he doesn’t like me that much – there’s another intern with me, and I can definitely tell that the other intern is his favourite. It’s a tad awkward sometimes~

Also, a belated Merry Christmas to everyone! :D Did everyone have a good Christmas? My family doesn’t celebrate it but we tried this year by having a family dinner and exchanging presents. It was really great :)

And can you believe that it’s nearly 2014 already? Holy crap! Where did this year go? This year flew by very fast for me. I’ll probably make a post about my New Year resolutions in the future but I know very well the top priority will be becoming a registered pharmacist.
