2012 To-do List Revisited

I’ve been watching days pass recently, as in literally counting them as they go along, marked specifically by things I am excited about (Maroon 5 concert today, American Idol on Friday, The Phantom last Sep 3, session at Mode Lei Spa, every payday) and things that I dread (enrollment week, audit reply due date). One thing I have noticed is that even if you watch it, time still flies by. And sooner than I realize, it will be 2013, I will be another year closer to 30 (gah), and hopefully, I will have glowing awesome skin. But I digress. The point of this post being, I believe my 2012 To-do list needs a revisit.

Status please:

1. Watch a play/musical –Ā DONE and ended with a standing O and a trio crush on The Phantom of the Opera leads, Claire Lyon, Jonathan Roxmouth and Anthony Downing. Thank you, really. Thank YOU.

2. Read at least one non-school book a month –Ā Hmm. Have not been keeping count, but yeah I think this one is good. Last book read was The Rise of Nine, and I am rereading The Power of Six.

3. Visit Maj’s grave. Frequency goal to be determined by my emotional stability and that of my companion –Ā Last visit was Valentine’s day šŸ™‚

4. Get something out in YB/Philstar/anywhere (LOL, reducing standards as I grow older) –Ā I hope Odesk counts though you don’t really know where they post your shit, haha. Though with my current employer I do. And this blog counts!! I say so.

5. Steer clear of new shit holes and learn to manage the existing ones –Ā Ah yes, I am doing awesome here, thank you very much *smug face*

6. Get more 4.0s than 3.5s at school –Ā Here too *smug-to-humble-face*

7. Watch a concert (is there really no more hope of SS4 Manila? Pretty please?) –Ā No luck on SS4 yet, but I will be seeing Adam Levine and Phillip Philips this week.

8. Say the F-word less often. Basically swear a little less –Ā I barely notice now haha methinks I’m improving.

9. Commit to a pescetarian diet –Ā ish.

10. Commit to a organic skincare/makeup lifestyle –Ā Skincare, check. Makeup, check-ish.

11. Commit to my quotas at work even if they seem highly probable –Ā Yeah, check šŸ™‚

12. On that note, be more positive about life šŸ˜€ –Ā Hmm, lukewarm to warm.

13. Treasure my friends. They are in my life for a reason, even if I don’t know the reason yet –Ā My moods swing me into wanting to be an island lately. Must be the age. Will try to work on this. But anyone who knows should understand that when a Scorpio tells you she doesn’t have time to go out and play, she really doesn’t. Sorry.

14. Treasure my family. They love me and I love them, even if we’re not Hallmark lovey-dovey like how the best of them are –Ā Every day.

15. Write more –Ā Nearly every day.

16. Shop less (best of luck here) – Less clothes shopping, definitely. But resources are diverted to skin care. Skin needs to improve ASAP so I can start saving for retirement.

17. Corollary to that: Spend less, save more –Ā Please see above.

18. Progress from 50 (almost daily) crunches to an actual exercise regimen –Ā I’m going back to this, I am!!

19. Travel domestic at least once (hopefully can be upgraded to international) –Ā Went to Macau last May, yay!

20. Procrastinate less – It’s just that I multitask until I forget some things.

21. Be on time (more often, hehe baby steps!) – Body clock now synchronized to 5am wake up time. Downside is, I am dead sleepy by 7pm.

22. Maintain more sustainable sleeping hours –Ā Refer to above answer.

Not bad if I say so myself šŸ™‚

    As regards number 2, your next non-school book should be the Casual Vacancy. Let’s end our Mexican standoff. šŸ™‚
