The first part is my review of 2009. I think the most frequently used word last year for me must have been "busy". Yep, I was busy doing many things: I had a busy job, a busy leisure time, busy weekends. I think that's because I always want to finish everything the way I plan it before, so I kept myself busy working all the time, like a busy bee, hehe.
Here are some important things that happened to me in 2009:
1. My medical check was good.
Nothing written in red in medical my report, almost all my health related data is normal, that's great!
2. I could run 5 km at a time and didn't feel tired.
Actually, I didn't like jogging before, but I heard it could help me to make my thighs thinner, so I decided to try it. I started around mid July. I remember the first time I jogged, I felt like I'm dying right there on the street. So I thought it may be too hard for a beginner to jog on the street, the tempo seemed too fast for me. I had to make a change and the gym seemed to be a better place for me. I used the running machine, starting with a 20 minute quick walk. Now I can run 30 to 40 minutes and add another 20 minutes of quick walk and I still feel alright.
3. My project was finished on schedule and we received a formal certificate.
Well, this is related to my job. I participated in an important project in my company and the schedule was so tight, we only had a year to finish this big project, but all team members (over 600 people) had to play their parts well. At last, we finished it and recieved certificates.
4. I could touch the floor with my hands while bending down forward.
I know this may be so easy for most of you, but for me, it was impossible to do before 2008, although I started with yoga in 2005. My bones were so rigid! However, after having yoga twice a week throughout the whole 2009, I'm able do this easily now.
5. I said good-bye to my longest relationship.
I broke up in November. There were tons of memories, lots of photos and happy times in the almost 9 years long relationship. However, I finally realized that we couldn't go on like that and that we can't have a future together, so I broke up with him soon after my birthday.
In addition to my 2009 review, I'd like to set up some goals for my 2010, because it's a whole new year for me. Here are some of the things I hope will happen:
1. I want to be with "someone" and have a great time with him in my lovely Taiwan.
This is the most important thing this year, be it now, be it later this year, most likely forever.
2. Save money every month.
I hope I can visit a lovely country in Europe. That means I have to buy less clothes, make-up products, shoes and bags. (weep)
3. Learn more Japanese and get the 3rd degree of JPLT .
I already got the basic 4th degree, I wish I can make a little progress.
4. Keep healthy.
I wish the report of my medical check this year will also turn out good.
5. Cherish my "someone" and my family.
I love all of them. I wish 2010 would be one of their best years.
