2017 is about to end. It’s been a year of adjustment for me. I’m adjusting to life back in London, went back to an office job and travelling to cities and towns instead of beaches and mountains. I wouldn’t say it’s not as good as my 2016. It’s just different.

It’s also a year of learning. I’ve learnt a lot of new things. Mostly professionally and personally. I gained lots of new skills that I can use to push my career further, honed some of my soft skills and I’ve discovered a few things about myself. Some of them I need to work on in 2018.

2017 might not have given me that much achievements but it has opened a lot of plans and projects for me.

I hope 2018 will be another awesome year. Of course, it’s up to me to make that happen. Most people wish and hope for better things in the new year. Make a list of ridiculous resolutions and then poof… stop and forget after January.

I’m like that so for 2018, I’m gonna make my resolutions public and make it a project. I’ve created a category for this. Every time, I’m working my resolutions, I’ll write a blog entry for it. No more procrastination.

My 2018 Resolutions:
1.) Travel once a month. Doesn’t need to be abroad. A short weekend trip to a town or city somewhere in the UK will do.
2.) Try 6 new things.
3.) Learn 3 new things.
4.) Sing Karaoke in public.
5.) Lose weight – 5kg every 3 months.
6.) Make 3 new friends and be more sociable.
7.) Finish that goddamn book.

I kept it short and realistic. Most of them are carried over from my past resolutions. 3 and 5 have been carried over many times already. I hope it gets sorted out in 2018. They’re open-ended as well. Getting ticked doesn’t mean it’s over.

Here’s to an amazing 2018. We’re given another gift of time. It’s up to us to make the most of it.

Stay Awesome,
