So the year 2010 has its end approaching.
Like all happy tales, it has to have an end.
On a side note, past few weeks were great; attachments, catching-up sessions with friends who yearn to meet ever since we took different paths at the end of secondary school.
Trajectories didn't cross simultaneously, so it was essential to do so.
This social protocol is even more so manifested when it comes to working life.
Where, through my attachment experience, it brings so much satisfaction just to meet old friends in person.
Ironically, I didn't had the luxury of time to blog about them despite how "inspirational" some of them were.
So here's a picture to make up for the apparent void:
Of course, I didn't only had one social gathering this month (despite how some of you might perceive I would have
This is just one outstanding one.
I'm not sure if I did a similar post regarding resolutions last year, but I certainly do remember some striking ones -- be it fulfilled or not.
Disclaimer: Please do not interpret this list as a form of bragging.. Haha, it isn't meant to be.
It serves to highlight the importance of aiming high and ultimately falling low, if it happens.

On hindsight, my 1st year at TJ wasn't as good as I hoped it would be.
With that said, year 2 would definitely be better.
Shall list a few resolutions for 2011:
Achieve top 3 (in terms of rank points (i.e. 80, 78.75 or 77.5, not position-wise
) of cohort.
Silver for NAPFA.
Memorable 18th birthday (cos I can't remember how I celebrated my 17th this year
Not much, and not that specific.
Through this year, I came to realise that over time resolutions (especially New Year's
) change when perspectives about life and almost everything about it change.
Maybe that is why I didn't include: "Maintain this blog" in 2011's resolutions.
Then again, there is reason to take comfort; shall leave this blog as a 'time capsule' and make known that I will shift my attention (that which was once channeled here
) to Twitter instead.
Like all good things, the post (and the blog) has come to an end.
May 2011 be a fulfilling year for you, dear reader.
