Today is 2nd January 2017. The year I am now at age 33 years old (gasp!). And also marks my 7th year as a teacher. And it has been 9 years since I left the AFFIN Bank in 2008. And will mark the 2nd and 3rd semesters of my Ph.D journey. Whoa, time flies like wink of an eye, no?
Struggling for my Ph.D thesis on rhetorical communication.
What are my resolutions for this year? I don’t have specific targets but my list goes :-
- To solidify the progress of my Ph.D thesis – entering the 2nd and 3rd stages mean that I have to really converge all the attention into that! ;
- To visit at least a place enlisted in my #Wishlist – I have one abroad destination which I really wanna go so bad (hopefully will materialize!) and other countless local destinations (I will try my ass off – FULL THROTTLE! – materializing these!) ;
- To read more than 5 celebrated books – the popular books or the “highly-renowned among the literature community members”.
- To join at least 3 running or health activities – to stay slim and young!
On personal level, this year will mark my 7th year of “not being single” (partnership sounds so scandalous, no?!) – but to tell the truth, I am somehow empowered by my solo trips in 2016 (REFER to https://undomiel84.wordpress.com/2016/12/30/thank-youu-2016-a-year-of-paradigm-shifts-masters-degree-ph-d-the-ramli-siblings-6-european-countries-backpacking-tour-soul-searching-solo-trips-goodreads-bookworm/) and couldn’t care less IF this time, it doesn’t work. It is not my priority anymore. I truly feel that.
Reading more than 5 celebrated books.
Partaking running events or anything that will keep me slim and healthy.
Life is beautiful. And I want to be able to savour and devour it to the fullest. If 2016 was the Year of Paradigm Shifts, I guess 2017 will be a year of metamorphosis for me; a year where I will enrich myself with colourful experiences and new adventures to be a New Me, Insya ALLAH. Even when life offers lime or lemon, I will strive hard to make lemonade! God bless.
This is me, experiencing a metamorphosis in 2017. God bless.
