I’ve been doing the same things over and over again these past few years. I’m afraid of trying new things, of taking chances so I end up with routines. Being a sheltered brat, I haven’t done a lot of fun and wacky stuffs in my life; stuffs that someday I’ll be proud of.
This year, I’ll try to step out of my comfort zone. I’ll try things that I haven’t done before. I listed down things I want to do or to accomplish this year. This is just a short list but I’ll try to fill it up as the year goes by.
Here’s the things that I look forward to this 2011:
Learn how to use Photoshop. I’ve wanted to learn Photoshop ever since. But I’m so damn lazy. This year, I’ll give it a shot. I’m a blogger so I must know how to work it.
Grab my second license*. This year, I’m going to take the NLE. I really want to top the board exam (huuuuugh!) so I need to study, study, study. I’m quite scared. But hey, a brilliant mind doesn’t need much bombardment. XD
* I got my first license (in Midwifery) almost two years ago.
Get a job. Sheeze! I’m gonna experience what the real world is like. Provided that I passed the board.
Give mom a decent gift on her birthday. This is embarrassing but I haven’t done this for the longest time. The last I gave my mom a birthday gift (if you even consider it as a gift) to my mom was 5-6 years ago and that was only a card. Budgeting this college freaks me out. But I’ll give her one this year. I just don’t know what.
Watch at least twenty movies in theatre. I wanna surpass my best record of 18 set in 2009.
Get a new phone. I’m just so sick and tired of my current phone. It is as old as the ship captain of Titanic.
Buy a DSLR. I know this is quite a luxury but I’m already egging Tita A to buy one for me.
Learn Bisaya. I don't know how I can pull this off but I'll try. I have few friends from Mindanao and I know they are very willing to help. I'm also finding sites in the net that offers Bisaya tutorials (if there's any). Learning a new dialect can be a hobby.
Corregidor. I find Corregidor very mystical. Media portrayed it as a ghost hunting haven. I want to have my own perspective of the place. And it’s not pricey to go there. I was told.
Caramoan. It’s a shame that I live only 5 hours away from that "Survivor" paradise and yet I haven’t been there. I'm not even aware of this place until last year when I heard in the news that Survivor France was shot there.
Be part of a medical mission. Obviously, no one beats charity works!
Invest in a good pair of shoes. I have 3 (rubber) shoes but they are all (kinda) old and overused. Old shoes are not-so-good. And not-so-good shoes bring you to not-so-good places. XD
Have a girlfriend. I’m just kidding. This is not a priority this year. But who knows?
A goal without a plan is just a wish (Thank you Ate Chyng) so I’m going to take a serious whack at it this year. My goal is to completely finish everything on the list before the clock strike 12 on December 31, 2011. This is no way going to be a walk in the park but I have a strong feeling that I can accomplish all of these – fingers crossed.
