So I said I’ll blog everyday. I’m 12 days late, but here is my first #Postaday2011 entry.
Today’s topic is: What are you looking forward to this year?
Somewhere in the continuum of space and time, something shifted; and the Roman calendar announced that a new year had begun.
Nothing perceptible had changed – not one that was observable anyway. The air smelled the same, and the sky remained as dark as it did every other night when the clock struck twelve. But somewhere in the heart of every person, as the sun made it’s orbit and each slice of our world took their dutiful turns to greet this invisible newness, a sense of hope bubbled to the surface.
There is nothing like the smell of untapped potential that surrounds the concept of a ‘New Year’. The potential for change, renewing, strengthening. The potential in such a seemingly arbitrary day; a second, third, forth chance to be the person you’ve always wanted to be but have yet to become.
It it almost halfway through the first month of the year. How time flies. 50 more weeks to 2012, what are you going to do with them? Something good, I hope.
For me, I’m looking forward to a great internship experience and learning a lot, then going back to school and doing a kickass project with my FYP mates. For my personal life, I’m going to spend more time with God and learn to once again enjoy singlehood after a four-year relationship. I did not expect it to end, neither did many of my old friends, but a heart cannot be forced to love, and I cannot keep what wasn’t mine to possess. Soo… Singlehood is good, I shall enjoy it and enjoy Jesus, and enjoy a year of goodness and favour and accelerated growth!
Also one big thing I’m looking forward to, is for Noodle to finally be housebroken!!!
For the severely uninformed, and it would be really severe because I haven’t shut up about my new corgi since I got him, yes I now haz a doggeh.
Unfortunately the inexperienced members of the Lee family trained him wrongly and we’re now trying to undo the damage we caused. Noodle is now afraid to pee/poop in front of us and only does it in secret when we’re out of sight. AND he does it in all the wrong places AND decidedly tramples over everything, pee, poop and all and makes a tiring mess several times a day.
I’m almost at my wit’s end over what to do but I shall just have to be patient with him. All the websites point to my failure to train him properly (it’s never the puppy’s fault). But I have dedicated this precious new member of my family to God and know that it SHALL BE GOOD. NOODLE WILL BE A GOOD BOY. Yes.
So like any proud mother, the rest of the entry is going to be pictures of the adorable 3 month old Noodle. And yes, that’s what I’m looking forward to this year.
Peace out and stuff.
