My thoughts: bare and bold.

Well... I don't have resolutions for the coming year.

January 1, 2012 -- I told myself, "I'm gonna own this year!" Well, it did happen. I finally earned my degree. I passed the board exams and got my license. I received my first bouquet of my favorite flowers. I had my first dance. I had my first literal struggle for life. I fell in, fell out and fell in love again. I started a business with my best friends. I got my first real job. I bought my first pair of shoes from my own salary. I discovered how nerd I can get. I learned how to wash clothes (using a washing machine, of course), iron clothes, and cook a few dishes. I lost friends and gained new ones. I learned to love and to give importance to my family and friends more. 2012 was a roller coaster of emotions, jam-packed with lots of memories to keep in my treasure box. Generally, I love how my 2012 went. It was epic.

And now, I'll be joining the band wagon by writing a "to-do list" for 2013. I don't wanna call it "new year's resolution" 'cos most new year's resolutions expire when February starts. A "to-do list" sounds and feels like some sort of "responsibility"; hence, the title of this post.

  1. Learn to say no. I dunno if I seem like it but I really do not know how to say no. I find it difficult to reject someone or somebody's request 'cos I have this shitty guilt feeling that they'd be hurt if I say no. I do know how to express myself but I just find it hard to sugarcoat a "no". Plus I think doing someone a favor would benefit me in the long run. How?

Frivolous Acumen

Can we all stop giving a damn to things not worth our time?

I do not understand why people love talking about other people's lives. Well, okay. Talk about whoever but please stop injecting unnecessary and unverified details. Are all these chit chats really necessary for you to get through your day? Are they like vitamins that nourish your soul?

I do not understand too why people love giving prejudices. And to make things worse, most of the time they stick on their prejudices without even exerting effort to know the truth. Will it harm you if you give someone the benefit of the doubt?
