The Beginnings of 2014

BY OLIVIA MARIE CHEONG YEE YAN

Hey everyone! How has the new year been? Every year is an opportunity for us to start anew and forget any mistakes or unhappy happenings in the past year.

We all know about New Year resolutions. We set them at the start of the New Year and work towards them throughout the year. Whether or not we actually accomplish them is another story (hehe).

This may be a little late, but let me share with you my New Year resolutions for 2014.

1. Stop Procrastinating

This is a major flaw of mine.

I tend to dilly dally and delay doing my work, waiting until the last minute to do my assignments and tasks, leaving me with no choice but to rush to finish the work.

This New Year, I need to develop a sense of urgency. After all, time waits for no one. I should treasure every moment I have and try to do as much as possible every day.

After all, when you know you have an assignment to complete, isn’t that nagging voice at the back of your mind so irritating?

2. Quit Lazing Around

This is a bad habit I have. I always lie around doing nothing all day long. Hence, my days pass by without much meaning and I don’t have a goal to work towards each day.

Create a schedule so you can organise your work properly. This way, you can stay focus and have some guidelines to follow.

3. Sleep Earlier

Another bad habit of mine. I stay up extremely late even during school days and end up being dead tired the next day (like a zombie).

I will sleep early and wake up early in this New Year. Sleeping early will naturally make me more energetic and like we all know, there is an adage that goes: “The early bird catches the worm”.

4. Be More Daring & Confident

I am rather timid and not very assertive. I tend to just agree with other people instead of voicing my own opinion. I will change this aspect by stating my views with confidence.

There is nothing wrong with telling people what I think, and if I know I am right and can correct a mistake, what am I waiting for?

But of course, remember to remain open-minded!

Alright, that’s all for my New Year resolutions.  I’ll work hard towards achieving them. Feel free to share your New Year resolutions too, my dear readers!

Once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I wish everyone success, happiness and good health for 2014!
