I have gone through many ups and downs in my life (mostly ups), major changes in environment and also a start to a whole new chapter of my life. From the shocking decision of me deciding to give up my prestigious scholarship in Singapore and return to Malaysia for college, to deciding on taking accounting, to working for 3 months as a trainee accountant, to meeting one of my best friends also food buddy Michelle and starting my journey towards a whole new level of gastronomic adventures, to my first kpop concert in my life, to first day in college, to meeting a whole new bunch of awesome friends in college, to getting my drivers' license and to my recent dream-come-true Korea solo trip and last but not least, the birth of www.jyjoonyoo.blogspot.com.
Blogging has brought me many benefits which I am obviously happy about it, but that's not my reason to start up this blog. The reason of me starting this blog can be found out at the About page. Click it if you wanna know why. Through blogging, especially through Nuffnang, it has opened a door to a whole new world of opportunities and benefits. From numerous movie premieres to free concert passes to events invitations, I have found myself benefiting alot from joining the Nuffnang community. I will continue to run this blog of mine, jotting down my experiences as I grow and learn, to be a better person, towards success.
And now, to the plain and boring reflections of 2013 and resolutions of 2014. Run away if you hate these stuffs! Hahah!
I realised that I have been spending these two things too recklessly and must really make an effort to stop this:
Time: Yup, time as in organising my priorities. I am a student right now, and my main priority throughout my course time frame is to study hard and ace my papers. But I have to admit, studies had never been anywhere near to important to me throughout the years. If I were to choose studying for an exam coming up in 2 days over going for an outing, I would choose going out instead of studying. In 2014, I must get myself to study harder than ever! Of course, talking itself is no use. I have come out with a plan. My goal is to just flip through my notes and textbooks for 15 minutes everyday. Yes, just 15 minutes will do. Better than to start everything at 11pm on the night before exams. (Yes I ALWAYS did that!) And also to pay attention in EVERY single lecture. Guys please slap me if you don't see me paying attention in class and revising.
Money: I realised how terribly I spent my money after counting. just for October, I spent about RM4000 just on my own stuff. That shocked me. RM4000 in a month! I am still 17! Although I am making very little amount of money through selling birds' nests for my dad, I have been spending ALL of them away. I spend money 90% of the time I open my eyes. I can wallop up to RM20 in a hawker stall just on a normal dinner with college mates. I cannot resist myself whenever I see stuff that catch my eyes and since I live by Sunway Pyramid, I always went to the mall and just bought whatever that I like. From the first day in 2014, I must start living by the line: "Spend only on what you need, not what you want." My parents are not rich and they work very hard to make a living, I cannot anyhow spend money like water. I can only go out twice a month for a good meal with my friends. Okay wait, 3. THREE. THAT'S THE LIMIT. By good meaning RM20 to anything below RM100 per meal. Michelle ma food buddy, at least one day is reserved for you ya~ hehehe XD
In short, in 2014, I must learn to manage my time more efficiently, give more priority to my studies and save more money. My goal is to see a RM5000 increment in my bank account next year. Oh yeah! I must lose weight too! Hahaha! To 68kg! Onz! I'm gonna reward myself with another trip to Korea. (Yup I love Korea so much, gonna blog about it soon!) I'm gonna book the air ticket once I reach 70kg!
Wish me luck and all the best for my upcoming resolutions! Wish all of you awesome people a happy last day of 2013 and a wonderful and fruitful year of 2014!
