5 things I want to fulfil in 2021

Image is completely unrelated but oh well. Taken in June, 2018

Every year I would have a list of resolutions but this year's goals are harder to measure. Most of it are not a do or don't/yes or no kind of goal. It's more of a spectrum of 'On a scale of 1 to 10 how do you score yourself' kind of thing. Let's see if I can even tick off half of these.. 

  1. I want to complete at least 5 books. My target last year was 3 books but I only completed 2, and had 5 other books that I read halfway. Hence, this year (a bit cheating) I want to complete all of the remaining books.
  2. I want to learn how to cook. My definition of 'pandai masak' would be boleh masak lauk Melayu. I don't know how to measure the success of this goal, but I'm sure I'll figure it out along the way.
  3. I want to give more to other people. I have made it a point to give out to charity every Friday just to cultivate the habit of it. I want to give meaningful gifts for my parents/sisters/friends on their birthdays. I did not grow up with the tradition of giving/receiving birthday gifts or even celebrating birthday in my immediate family. I never had birthday parties, nor birthday gifts. The only time I would get gifts were as rewards for excelling exams. So I suck at gifting and I want to change that this year.
  4. I want to travel abroad once it's allowed again. I know if we're being realistic, it's unlikely. But if we want to be optimistic, I'd say we might be able to in the last quarter of the year. Hopefully.
  5. Ok the last goal I want to keep to myself and only reveal when I actually fulfilled it. Simply because this goal was in every resolution I had in the past years. You might be able to guess it already lol.
Since it's already more than halfway through January, I can say, January is not a good month. Some of the reasons being; we had Covid scare in the family. Some of extended families were actually tested positive of the virus. Then, the government announced another lockdown & I'm also having some health issue of my own, of which I have yet to get myself checked, so I'm still living in fear that I might be sick. 

However, I am still optimistic that it will get better in time. Happy 2021 🎉
