2014, here we go!

13th January 2014 14 comments

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 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 Iย haven’t been studying at all but I got to motivate myself to ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the one that I’m more fond of.

How’s everyone’s 2014 and New Year resolutions coming along? ๐Ÿ™‚

the longer i stand here, the louder the silence

My blogging track hasn’t been good of late. But meh, it’s the holidays and I’ve been super busy. I worked so much last week and this week (all together, so farย 74 hoursย in the last 10 days or so). And I’m still ridiculously poor ๐Ÿ˜ Perhaps because I just paid my hosting bill of $345 USD and my internet bill of $100 AUD :S


I’ve never cared much about the New Years celebration but my family had a little get together which was kinda nice. This year seems important to me, more than usual.ย I’m not sure whyย but perhaps last year was one of a lot of change and while a ‘new slate’ would be nice, I’m also scared what it’ll bring.

And perhaps because I’m entering in my 3rd year of pharmacy and after seeing my sister and her friends go through it, I’m terribly afraid. It’s apparently non-stop studying. Seriously ๐Ÿ˜ I am the queen of procrastination and notย studying. My sister says I’ve mastered the ability to look like I’m studying when I’m not ๐Ÿ™‚

My New Year resolutions (pretty much the same every year):

  • Study harder!
  • Word hard on Three-Words and my other domain (but I get a feeling that this will conflict with the above resolution :S)
  • Be nicer to my parents
  • Write more (including blogging)
Um..I’m sure I have loads more in general but those were the first ones that popped into my head.
What are your new year resolutions?

The rest of the post is a meme that the lovely Kathy tagged me in.

I’m tagging: Kristy, Amano, Shiki, Wyona, Delphine, Lydia, Melissa, Dei, Carol and Caro.

Sue me, that’s 10 people, I know. Oh and you guys don’t have to do it if you don’t wish ๐Ÿ™‚

Expect another blog soon! (as in not in the next month hehehe ^^).
