Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates lately. It’s the end of the school year, and I’ve been swamped with readings and essays (the perks of being an english major). Exams also start next week so that should be…fun. I will definitely have regular updates again in April though, and talk about exciting summer related things!
Also, a special thanks to Rita for the blog award!
Speaking of summer, I always find this the best time to make any resolutions as New Years resolutions never last until the end of February. For good reason too – 8am in the middle of a blizzard doesn’t seem like a good idea for that proposed daily jog even though on New Years Eve (usually thanks to the influence of alcohol) it seemed brilliant.
I tend to find making resolutions pretty boring. If anyone ever asks, my yearly resolution is always “to become rich and famous by starring in an asian pepsi commercial.” (Hey- it’s a lot more likely to happen than those 8am jogs)
During the summer, these resolutions are so easy to keep since you’re practically forced to go to the gym everyday if you intend on going to the beach, and obviously everyone loves the beach (unless you’re a vampire). Summer also means lots of ice cream dates, skimpy clothing (good for rekindling old romances, starting new ones or having affairs), and extra free time allows you to go find enlightenment or the meaning of life or whatever in some third-world country.
In any case, I prefer keeping a “to-do list” rather than making resolutions. Here’s what’s on my summer to-do list this year!
Cleaning out my closet
Since I’m moving out of my apartment at the end of April, this gives me the perfect opportunity to donate the majority of the clothes I have. I really like the idea of living minimally and less clothes means I can conveniently fit it all in one suitcase, which is perfect for traveling. (Actually, it’s mainly an excuse so I can go buy some pieces I’ve been eyeing at ZARA).
Becoming fluent in German
All I can say is, I’ve been watching Goodbye Lenin! way too many times. But of course it will all pay off once I pass my language test, and for when I move to Germany next year. And if I ever meet Daniel Bruehl.
Keeping a Journal
My life is crazy so I like writing about it. Especially with my flight attendant job this summer, I will for sure be keeping a journal. I’m planning on putting together a few of my past journals together, and publishing it as a travel memoir, which I’ll be working on sometime soon. Very exciting!
Star in an asian pepsi commercial
Guys, I think this will be the year! I mean, I was once in a commercial, I’ve had my picture taken for the style section of an asian newspaper, and occasionally I drink pepsi (preferably mixed with rum). If those aren’t the attributes of an asian pepsi commerical star in the making, I don’t know what is.
What’s on your summer to do list?
