Revisiting Resolutions 2014

Can't believe it is already the last quarter of the year! Time always goes so fast.

At the beginning of the year, I decided to be super ambitious and make a whole list of resolutions to aim for this 2014. Definitely overshot the margin, but I am happy with the few things I have accomplished. Since we have nearly come to an end, I'll narrow it down.

Acquire job

I am grateful that I managed to get a sweet full time job that I'm decent at! (If I say so myself) 

I have to say I enjoy my time at work more than I ever imagined I would. Co-workers are friendly and are dedicated to doing an awesome job for their clients, so we all work together to create the best work for them. 

I'm putting my skills into good use, though I always aim to improve even more! Learned a lot this year and becoming faster at front-end development which is pretty cool. I feel a sense of accomplishment when completing more difficult projects - its like a game, where I can pass all the checkpoints to reach the next objective! #gamifylife

I would still like to learn more code when I have the time. Everything is always changing in the dev world. This month I unpaused my Team Treehouse membership, so will be learning/revising some concepts.

Get fit

This goal hasn't been that successful to be completely honest! In the beginning of the year, I was super pumped to keep it up but as things go - the passion died out really quickly! Coincidentally, it died out around the daylight savings in March. I started making excuses that I didn't want to walk to the gym at night time. 

I have since started this goal again! It's still bright after work, so there is more daylight to kill. Aiming for at least three times a week. Started to play some casual badminton with workmates recently - and hell, its much more fun than going to the gym! Yay~ let's do this. Time to invest in a cheap badminton bat? Yep.


Honestly, there are higher priorities for me right now. I would love to have some time to make a costume though. If I had three wishes, one of them would be to have more hours in a day to do hobbies! Let's see if I can make that costume by Armageddon time /o\ Maybe its a good idea to post progress here to keep up the motivations haha. 

C'mon Nico, you are a speedy sewer when you put your mind to it! #selfmotivation


Maybe I have become too busy to care and think about this.
Let me come back to this sometime. But yes, people's opinions still affect me. 

Not too much at work, while I'm in the code zone though haha :) Or around my close friends, and like-minded people.

More at family gatherings and group events I think /o\ I'm still the awkward turtle.

If there's a specific goal, I can talk fine. If its small talk, save me please!

The Rest

This year has been very much a work-oriented year. And from a month ago, independence!

But, its great! Even though I made that scary, long list at the beginning of the year ... I'm happy with the few things I accomplished thus far. I am glad I took the web development course. I am happy with that one thing - getting a job that I love and being good at it. If a shy girl like me can do it, I think anyone can as long as you are passionate about it! 


I am human, and there have been some downsides but that is okay. Better to focus on the positive things in life. Especially with the little time there is to chill!
