- Run/Walk at least twice a week
Last year, I wanted to wear a bikini in public and yeah, I sort of did (it was with family only), but it didn't mean I felt good about my body. And this year, I want to feel good about it, so I should DO something about it. Walking/running isn't too bad and twice a week is pretty okay, so I should push myself to really do this.
- Reach/exceed the 2012 Travel Budget
I'm not sure if I've ever written about it (perhaps cause I didn't want to jinx anything), but I really do want to visit London next year for the Olympics and because tickets go on sale in the spring this year, I really need to reach my budgeted goal. I'm pretty good with saving in general, but there are those times I get to spend and feel guilty, so I should budget better because next year's travel plans will require LOTS OF spending and I don't want to feel guilty about splurging.
- Feel good about my work
I'm not expecting a raise or a promotion anytime soon as I just started my new job, but I would like to stick around this job and actually get better at it. I don't want to feel like a failure at my job, nor do I want to feel incompetent so i'm going to try to focus more on it and really give it my all. I need to concentrate more and just really be on the ball.
- Be more patient
As much as I hate my dad's short fuse, it's scary to realize I'm equally impatient as well in other aspects of my life. This year, I hope to be less quick to judge and more understanding and patient especially with my dad but with others as well. I should learn to be patient with myself too. As they say, patience is a virtue.
