Today is the first day of 2013.
My New Year's Eve countdown was spent with my buddies at a potluck houseparty!
With some pals & old buddies!
The eve of 2013 also marked my first time drawing penises on a drunk person!
I see photos and photos on humour sites (like 9gag or CollegeHumour) done so often at the end of parties where people have gotten too sloshed to notice.
But I never thought the day would come that I attempt to do my own on someone else
Yay art class! Photo pixelated for privacy
Thanks for a good evening & being an awesome host, Sam!
I've looked through the New Year's resolutions I wrote last year and I'm *quite* pleased to have achieved all of them regardless of the extent!
Here are this year's resolutions :
Jessicat's 2013 New Year's Resolutions
1. Be fitter & healthier
Last year I've lost quite a lot of weight, yay me! Time to lose even more & get even more toned
2. Be a lot more thrifty & prudent in spending.
I've been in and out of this throughout 2012. Time to get serious. Be both penny & pound wise! $$
3. Be more multi-lingual.
For starters, I'm going to be fluent in the two languages I've always wanted to master – my own mother tongue: Mandarin & another language: French.
4. Be timely & current in publishing my blog posts.
I despise having piles of pending blog posts staring back at me. Enough. I'm not going to take forever anymore/publish posts a month after it happens. That's gonna stop – for good.
5. Conquer Mount Kinabalu.
I've been very active in hiking & trekking the whole of last year.
So why not take it a step further on Asia's highest peak?
What are your New Year's resolutions?
Really, repetitive photos of fire-works or New Year's greetings that I'm tagged in along with more than a hundred people?
That isn't quite necessary, is it?
Like every year, I'm going to recap some of the defining moments that made my year.
