A Look into 2009

2008 has come and gone, the year had it's sweet and bitter moments; and I guess I'll leave it at that. No point reminiscing and going emo about it.

I met a bunch of friends who's asked me about resolutions for the new year, to which I quickly chided; "Tell me something, do you even remember what were your 2008 resolutions?"  90% went blank after that and switched to a better topic instead, like discussing whether the girl in red opposite our table was attractive.

For me, the new year started rather slowly and a bit unpleasant; I developed an infection on my left ear, the doctor informed I was close to getting meningitis and for the subsequent 6 weeks I will be on medication.  Talk about a good start.  

That aside, here's a glance on what I plan to do for the remaining 358 days.

Being the 'smart worker' I am, I've taken the trouble to study this year's public holidays, & found that most of the holidays fall on Friday; which is a good thing. At least that's something to look forward to for the year ahead. 

Social-wise, I've been asked by Danielle to teach guitar during weekends, I told her I'd think about it, as another friend of mine wanted me to help him out in some volunteer work. I haven't given much thought about this as I need to balance out my job schedule first. As for relationships, some things didn't quite work out as expected, I've decided to keep my current status as it is for the year.  

As for the blog in 2009, I plan to get a few more co-authors, change the layout maybe 3-4 months once, something like that. I've given shiori an undefined leave of absence, she just got promoted and is currently busy with new responsibilities, plus trying to figure out ways adjusting to her new armchair.   

On that note, I feel it's time to keep the crystal ball and live life to the fullest for the year. Albeit a lil' late, I'd like to wish all the readers a pleasant 2009 ahead.
