New Years Resolutions 2010

December 31, 2009

new years

It’s only a couple of more hours before 2010. Another year is upon us and this will be the first year in a while that I’ve actually made any resolutions. I feel that this is the year that I will actually get my life together and do more. So, I present you with my list of official resolutions for 2010.

1. I will write more, even if it’s only a little bit. I’ve already started to help myself with this revolution. I bought a 5 year diary which is divided into one day on each page with small sections to write for each year. You just have to fill in the year and write a small bit each day. This will help me get started without having an entire page to fill which just freaks me out and that’s why I never finished a diary or journal I think. A sentence or two would be something that I could do and if I forget one day I don’t have an entire empty page staring at me.

2. I will become healthier. I’m definitely going to start exercising. I bought some 10 Minute Solution exercise DVD’s since I don’t really have too much time to work out. And I don’t have the money for a gym membership even it I did have the time. I will also start to eat healthier and drinking more water. I’ve already started to cut down on my soda intake and drink Gatorade or V8 when I want something sweet to drink. I will also start a vitamin regimen. I want vitamins to help with my health as well as to help with my skin.

3. I will take more pictures. I want to start doing Project 365 and take at least one picture each day. I have this perfectly good camera that I rarely use. I need to start this coming year. Pictures of anything really, just something to help get my creative juices going.

4. I will become more organized. I will start by using a planner this year and actually putting it to use I found the WeekDate planner which is a monthly, weekly, and daily planner all in one. I absolutely love it! You’d have to go to the website to see all it can do but personally I can’t wait for next year when I can start to use it.

5. I will blog more and find a focus for the site. I want to blog more consistently starting this coming year and becoming more focused in what I blog about. I will of course have to plan more for my blogs which is where the previous resolution comes back in to play. 😉

These are just the basics of course and now I just have to follow through with all of them. I’d love to hear what your resolutions are for the coming year.


Holiday Fun

December 28, 2009

Thanks for all of your holiday wishes. I hope your holidays were fun. 😀 I had to work on Christmas Eve which was not fun at all but having Christmas Day off made it worth the hassle. (Can I just say that holiday travelers are really cranky? lol) Of course on Christmas my brother made sure we all got up at 7 am to open presents, even though apparently he’d been up since 4 so I count that as a win for his patience. I got mostly gift cards since I like to shop for myself anyway, so I got a pretty good haul. I also got some ultra comfy pajamas from my parents as always. I never say no to pajamas. 😀 Then my sister and her friend went to go see ‘Sherlock Holmes’ later that day. I have to say that I loved it! It was funny and had plenty of action as well. I think there’s going to be a sequel, at least they left it open for one, so we’ll have to see.

The day after I went to a wedding at my mother’s church. It was really lovely. It was for my mother’s friend’s son. (That was a mouthful.) And since he’s half-Korean (like me!) His mother and sister’s wore a traditional Korean dress called a Hanbok. My mother did as well and so did some others. I would have but I’ve outgrown my last one and it was a bit chilly anyway. :/ They are a little drafty. The ceremony was lovely and I loved the bride’s dress. Her colors were ivory, tan, and brown. So she wore a gorgeous ivory dress with a tan sash around her waist, trailing down the back of her dress. It was the first wedding I’ve been to if you can believe it, so I’m really glad that I went.

Anyway, 2010 is just around the corner and I’m actually really excited for it. This is the first year in a while that I’m actually putting together a list of Resolutions. I’ll actually be sharing that on the first of the year of course. I’m getting ready for it to start on the first and hopefully I’ll be able to follow through this year. 😉


Merry Christmas!

Quotes to Ponder

December 21, 2009

“Do all the good you can,
By all the Means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
John Wesley


Back from my holiday!

December 3, 2009

First, I’d like to apologize for being a complete loser. I totally was lost for the month of November. I do have good excuse though, for all that saw my last post I was busy trying to catch up for NaNoWriMo. I tried so hard! But it was all futile. I got halfway through. :/ It’s better than my previous efforts but still not quite the win I was going for. But maybe next year. I have to say that I really like the story I was going for so maybe I’ll continue to write it at a more leisurely pace now.

Moving on! I went down to Florida to visit with family for Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun! Of course the drive down was a bit cramped with the five of use in a Pathfinder. Those things are really not made with passengers in mind, especially those in the back. But the food was amazing! Of course we almost managed to burn my aunt’s house down with the turkey, but other than that it was great! lol The mac and cheese was a little burned on top but we just ate around that.

What was not fun was Black Friday. I don’t know how I managed to get roped into any of it but this was my schedule. Thursday evening went to go see ‘Ninja Assassin’ with the siblings and cousins at around 8 pm. (It was awesome by the way!) Got back to the house at around 10 and managed a small catnap before having to be up at 11:30. We tried first to go to an outlet mall that was opening at midnight for some sales. We couldn’t even make it off the exit, it was back up for about 2 miles! We finally drove past it to turn around and saw some people even parked on the side of the highway and just walked over to the outlet to shop. Insane!

So we decided to hit up Target and JC Penney, starting with Target since they were sure to sell out first. Since Target wasn’t opening until 5 am we ate at IHOP then spent the next few hours standing out in the cold waiting for the doors to open. My dad managed to get his GPS system and my aunt got a flat screen 32inch tv and you know what I got? Nothing. My 1TB desktop hardrive for only $60 was gone! I even got a run over by some old lady’s cart and I got zip. Then we went to JC Penney and I managed to get some Christmas gifts and Bath and Body works was having a decent sale so I got some stuff from there. We finally went back to the outlet after the insane line went down and shopped for a few hours. But by then I was so tired I wasn’t even interested anymore. By the time we got back to the house it was 9 am and I fell into bed immediately.

*sigh* Anyway, all I’m saying is that I’m never doing that again. It’s all about Cyber Monday for me from now on. I don’t care what anyone says. Nothing will get me out among those crazy people ever again. So, how was your Thanksgiving? 😀
