Happy Lunar New Year everyone!
I have been busy doing work and group meeting recently so I could not post any new topic after the last sadness.
As you all know that I am an Asian. In my country, as well as other asian/ southeast asian countries, we celebrate Lunar New Year as we follow two systems of calendars, one like Western calendar depending on the movement of the sun, and the other one is following the moon; that’s why we call it ‘Lunar’. For Asians, we treat ourselves a Lunar New Year holiday like Western people’s Christmas time. We always miss our families if we cannot come back, we miss the traditional cuisines specially made for the holiday. Once a time each year, we gather around with our family members and go to visit our relatives, call our friends for best wishes and happiness for them in the new year. Oh, and we actually have some days off before the Lunar New Year Eve, then we clean the house with kids, we buy new clothes, decorate every corner with beautiful flowers…It is the best time of the year! Time for the old, and the new; for the beginning and the present.
Every year, I make a New Year Revolution list. Last year, I just wished I could have read more books and drink more water, train my body to be in shape then all would be great ( yes, greedy me :p). This year, looking back at last 12 months, I realise that I did loose weight a little bit. It is an excuse when I said I started keeping track on my weight ONLY since November but still, I did keep my body balanced since then till now and hopefully be better before summer of 2014. About books, I finished 3 fictions and 5 academics, oh yeah. It is not bad, isn’t it? I will do my best so don’t worry that I’ll change sooner or later. That’s not my style when it comes to books! Water? 1 pint every morning after waking up 😉
So what is next? Due to my routine sine late 2013 until now, I have been extremely busy working, meeting people, doing small projects, sharing time with my family and friends…and maintaining my hobbies at the same period of time (each week for my case). That’s why I want to learn ‘How to use time efficiently’. I have a lot of things that I have to do, I must do, I want to do and I need to do. How to tackle the Time topic, it’s not easy.
Afterthat, I officially want to gain experiences about dealing and negotiating with people – Human Beings! It is so hard, oh my god! How can it supposed to be this way since I am always being the submissive style to forget about myself and give others chances to be happier with whatsoever they wish for? I changed, didn’t I? I felt guilty at the same time with confusing and truly sadly mad when I tried to treat people well every time and one time happened differently then I felt so lost. It is not about creating a perfect image in colleagues’ eyes, I might overwork so I felt tired of everything. However, I don’t have time to stop even. Snow ball effect influences my mood a lot and I really want to escape sometimes. What they usually say is right, bad things come at the same time! I’m so missing my carefree moments, learning stuffs that I like, talking to people who close to me, staying my mom, dad and siblings.
(Detailedly, I used to wish that I could work with people I knew already and we were then a perfect team. The fact proved me so wrong!!!! Lame excuses, lack of responsibilities, blaming and keep blaming, a series of No this and No that… Oh gosh! That’s why you should do business with your customers, your clients, your never-met-before people, even your competitors…just NOT your folks!)
I still consider myself as a lucky person because I have my job, I have my position and I still (want to) believe in myself. And I have you, my readers, who will listen to me when I have hard time to express my feelings.
Thank you for all of the time you spend here x
After all, it is a new year!
When we are young, we can learn to understand. Time and Human beings are the most two difficult subjects to master so be persistent and patient! Hard working will be paid back x
Great Lunar New Year, everyone!
Happy and Successful 😡
