Two Oh Oh Nine!


(funny fact: I opened up this window to start this post, wrote in the title, and they typed nothing in for 2 days. Window was minimised and I just went about doing other stuff. Today I opened it again and was like OH THAT'S WHERE IT WENT!)



Well, procrastination is one way to start the new year, albeit not the most effective way. But hey, it's THE start. GFWMG officially ushers in 2009 with this post, with a more positive outlook and a few minor changes to the layout of the blog. I now try to advertise (and link to) my favourite webcomics. 6 links have been interspersed throughout the blog and will add some colour here. Also it'll give you an idea as to the influences of my sense of humour. A quick list beckons:
  1. Questionable Content
  2. Least I Could Do
  3. XKCD
  4. Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
  5. Cyanide & Happiness
  6. Dr. McNinja
Now that the new year has rolled in, it means so have my semester end papers. In a week, I begin my exams and start with Economy & Business in the UAE. One of my favourite topics (Econ) blended with the country I live in. Ingenious! The crappy thing about my papers is that they continue without break, so it means I have one paper after another. The flip side of that is that I get to finish in 6 days.

I went out to a New Years party with some friends, and suffice to say, I had a lot more fun than I originally thought I would. I had an inkling that it would be fun, but it turned out a lot better than I imagined. I wanna do it again!

I was asked if I was going to make any New Year resolutions (and not like: I'm gonna lose some weight) and I didn't have to think much. There are a few things I'd like done. Firstly, I want to regain my mojo. I'm already on a fast track there, but I want to hit it YESTERDAY! I want to learn to be more content with my life. I want to learn when to limit myself, in many ways. I want to increase my work ethic. I'm also going to try and work harder to remain in touch with people. It's surprising how many people you can let go of, just because you didn't try hard enough. And you tend to let go of the nice ones, so I'm gonna try and turn that around for myself.

This year, I want to do something more interesting during the summer. I've not given it much thought, but all I know is that summer of '09 is going to be a lot better than the last two summers that I've had. Just need to figure out what it is I'm going to do. India (GOA!) is an option, along with Hawaii, NYC, DC, Houston and Russia with the Cookie Monster. A few of my friends from University also plan on hitting Goa this summer, maybe I'll go with. Or maybe I can try and go someplace for like 2 weeks, but work in a great place the remainder of the time. That would be ideal, but I've got a good 5 months to fuss over what it is that I want to do this summer.

I will also look to this year to really boost my professional side. Gonna try and actively pursue careers in Public Speaking & MC-ing, the media industry and also in the gaming industry via a few contacts that I made in these industries. As for my degree, if all goes according to plan, I ideally would want to do something related to my degree in one of these industries. Hopefully I'll pursue my secondary hobbies (becoming a Game Tester, or, a TV Reporter, or, an Anchorman) along with.

And with that, I'm tying my shoes and rolling up my sleeves.


2009, bring it!

I'll be heading to Texas, but most probably in March or so.

Traveling sounds awesome :)

I'm game for Goa! A road trip would be wicked too - what do you say?

Dude, you need to set yourself up on LinkedIn firstly, and go facebook crazy in finding all the people you know. LinkedIn is wicked for being head hunted if you sell yourself properly (I don't need to tell you how to do that ;) )

DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT!

Also, lets get a few people together and lets see how much we can budget for a 2 week holiday. Accordingly we know what we can play with. At this point I don't care where we go.... as long as we go!

@mars:
Texas, eh ;)

@biab:
Ok LinkedIn is going to take a while. BUT, Goa can be worked out! I've a few friends who want to go in the Summer. If you can fly down in the summer for 2 weeks, I can arrange and co-ordinate and whatnot..
