As I am writing this, it is 11: 23pm, not long till a new year. Year 2009. I am looking very much to it. It will be a year when I graduate with a BA in Psychology and Humanities. It will be a year when I get engaged to the love of my life and a year when I can finally get back to the workforce after years of being a full time student and earn some dough!
Anyway, to end 2008, Bryan and I had dinner at Casa Roma tonight along Bukit Timah Road. We shared their homemade squid ink pasta and a seafood pizza, along with dessert and red wine. It was a very nice pleasant dinner indeed. Each NYE we usually go out with friends for dinner and partying afterwards and drinking too much, but this year it seems everyone had either family commitments or am overseas so this year it was just Bryan and I.
When the year comes to an end, do you ponder over the things that you have done? Regrets or acomplishments? Things you wish you would have done? Things that bring you happiness and things that cracked you up so bad you had tears in your eyes? Do you do a mental list of things you need to acomplish in the new year?
I do those things pretty much a few days before the new year. It is a time for reflection. It is a time to dream about your life in the new year. That's what I do..I go for afternoon strolls and think about these things. You'll find so many memories and events just fill up your mind all at once, some really do make me smile...and they're the ones I like best.
How do you reflect on the year that has just gone by?
Here is wishing everyone a very Happy New Year with lots of happiness!
Take care and I shall see you in 2009!
