I guess some of you would say it is a lame ritual to make (over)ambitious plans on New Year’s Day only because the calendar says there is something fundamentally different about today from yesterday. Still, you know me. I am your most predictable person, who also looooves making lists. However, I usually keep my lists to myself – partly because I am well aware that not a great many people would actually give a darn to them 🙂 and partly because I would like to think ahead to save my own embarrassment in the most probable case of giving up in the middle of January.
Change of the approach this year. Let me use my easily embarrassed nature to my advantage. I am that determined. Among the few promises I am making to myself now, the one on the top of the list is to go to bed before midnight 1 a.m. As many of you already know, I am a night owl. And I genuinely believe the whole “morning person” craze, which incidentally swept Korea a couple of years back, is commercially fuelled, as much as the Weight Watchers programmes. Quite simply, some, including myself, have to ease into their days slowly.
Yet, now I am no longer a student and simply cannot afford my life style any more (SIGH), which is why I am seriously intending to do something about it. It will be better for my skin, I suppose, if not for anything else. So, if any of you see me at night in my usual habitats – Skype, MSN, Facebook, etc. – please give me a slap on the wrist and hold me to my own words. Starting from … tomorrow.
