Quote of the day:
My life is starting over again, over again
my friends say I’m back again
My life is starting over again
- My Life Is Starting Over Again, Daniel Johnston
I’m not much of a resolutions person. I know better than to give in to the pressure of New Year and make promises to myself that I probably won’t keep. I mean, if you really want to accomplish something, you wouldn’t wait until New Year to act on it, right?
Instead, I make wishes. I like ticking them off throughout the year and going back in December to see how much of them has come to pass – and a lot of them do happen, which surprises me all the time because quite a few of them requires a decent amount of faith-stretching to believe that they’d actually happen.
So here’s this year’s:
1. Climb a mountain. This is probably my most realistic because I’m planning on climbing Mt. Pulag at the end of this month. I’ve been needing to get off my ass, and it’s been too long since I’ve done a real hike, plus it’s Mt. Pulag, which I’ve been dreaming to climb since high school. I don’t want to count my proverbial chickens, but yay me!
2. More love! Not for me, of course not! [Haven't you people learned anything? When it comes to matters of the heart, I prefer to live vicariously and enjoy other people's happy relationships!] I have quite a few people in mind whose love lives I would really enjoy to watch flourishing. This means people finding their special someones, people getting engaged, people marrying… *sigh* the closer they are to my heart, the better. I would rather not name names so as not to add to the pressure they may already be feeling, but if you’re reading this and you feel that I’m talking about you… yes, I probably am. *wink*
