It’s that time of the year when we wait for a new year, a new start..
It’s weird how people think that the new year will mean a better life in general. A new year does not mean a new start. Nothing changes when the first of January comes.
Everything is the same. The people around you are the same, your current life is basically unchanged, you still have the same issues. Nothing magical happens on New Years Eve.
I sound pretty negative, don’t I?
Truthfully, 2012 has been a challenging year. Lots of changes, actually there have been so many changes that I really cannot keep track of them all. One thing I know for sure, things come and things go. So 2012 came and with it so did change, now 2012 is ending 2013 is coming.
I am actually happy with myself. I completed a lot of things that were on my list, some more important than others and in general it has been OK.
For 2013 I would like to maintain the same course of action.
So without any other comments about the past year Happy New Year and here is my Resolutions:
~~~~2013 wish list~~~~
Sighisoara Start the year with money in my pocket. Be wise with money and don’t spend it on rubbish. End the year with the set amount of money in my savings account. I managed to put money in the savings account, but with the help of Johnny. Have 3 office/casual dresses & wear them. One summer dress (does this count?), office skirt and office dress.
- Start my daily Photography blog & take more care of the current Photography blog. Not happening any time soon…
- Finish all current stitching projects (Geisha, .
- Stitch a bookmark. Started the bookmark with a Korean theme.
- 50 books (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, ), Read 42 books (that’s good enough for me)
10 movies at the cinema (The Hobbit, Parker, A Good Day to Die Hard, Fast and Furious 6, The Hangover 3, Snitch, 2 Guns, Riddick, Thor: The Dark World, The Hobbit: Smaug Desolation, Frozen )
- 10 Bollywood movies (1, 2, 3, ).
- 10 Korean/Japanese movies (1, 2, ).
- Visit 10 memorial houses (in Bucharest or others cities).
Finish my second year at university with good grades.
- Take a foreign language course.
- Practice Japanese twice a week (post my lessons online just to keep myself on track).
Visit different coffee houses and go out more (with Johnny and friends). Buy something that would make me feel like the most special person alive.
- Get my drivers license. Started the drivers license lessons, just a few more weeks..
Learn not to take everything personal. Learn to get over failures and rejections. Do something today that your future self will thank you for. I’m happy!
- Finish my 1000 pieces puzzle and frame it (update 31.01.2013: Started the puzzle and sorted the pieces).
Buy myself a photo camera. Have fun
In 2 hours or so I’ll be back at work, doing stuff and things like that. I am in no mood to go anywhere. I just fell like staying home in bed, reading a book or watching a good movie.
Oh well, there’s one thing that I’m actually happy about I got new stuff. I didn’t buy many or expensive things just one book and a puzzle. The puzzle is really awesome and I actually can’t wait to finish it and frame it.
The puzzle is a vintage one with a well known actress of her time, Marlene Dietrich and it has 1000 pieces. I really like the colors and the title of the movie “The Devil is a Woman”.
I’m thinking of adding it to my door when it’s finished or somewhere around my room.
The other thing that I’m happy about is a romance book. The book cover caught my attention, it was actually in the section with all the Twilight/vampire/werewolf books. It was really easy to spot actually.
The book is called “Femeia alba pe bicicleta verde” and I never heard about the author up until now. But I liked what I read on the back of the book and I said to give it a shot. It’s not like I’m currently reading 3 books at a time, nope, not me.
Besides my little shopping spree nothing much. I really am not feeling the holidays this year.
Today is a very special day for us. I guess we just reached the first milestone in our relationship.
5 years ago on this day me and Johnny had our very first date!
5 years of dating and spending time together, bickering, having fun, enjoying our time together and the experiences around us. Boy, time sure flies and what can I say, we’ll let you know when the next 5 years pass.
Besides that I can truly say that I can’t wait for this year to be over. Just 5 more days and the new year will come.
I can’t say that I’ve felt the holidays, because I actually worked for Christmas and I will work and for the New Year as well. So I guess I’ll be ending the year on a working note. But at least I’ll start the year with money in my pocket. That never happened before.
On a brighter note I have two days off and I can say that I am making the most off them. We went to the park today. It was almost deserted but we expecting that since everyone was recovering after the Christmas madness.
It was nice and quite warm for this time of the year. After that we went for pizza, visited family and friends and the day still isn’t over. As I am writing this, we are waiting for some friends to pick us up and go out.
It will be a double date celebrating our 5 year milestone and a friends birthday so it should be fun.
Until then we are just hanging around,either watching TV (How its made), on the Internet or just slacking in bed as Marlanu’ will demonstrate.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
The real Winter is here.
It started snowing last night but I wasn’t expecting to find the tress white since it also rained yesterday. Still it is a nice surprise and its a good way to start the week in my opinion.
My mini vacation is over and I start work today.
I’m also expecting an increase in snow related posts on my dash on Facebook and Tumblr. It should be interesting..
