Keeping up with resolution

Almost throughout my young adult life I never had a resolution much less to follow any of them if I ever did have them. But this year I made a resolution that for the last month I had been following religiously. I woke up 4:30 or 5:00 am. If I am extremely tired over the weekend, I would allow myself to sleep till 6:30 am or 8:00 am the latest.
First things is pray, and later read something that would my spirits up. And if I have the time, listen to some motivational speeches on YouTube. All these routine tends to set my mood throughout the day. I feel motivated.
The little voice that says "this is just going to be just like all your resolutions". But I just told that voice to shut the f up. :) I am doing this. And they say if you do something over 30 days it will be a habit. And I have done it more than that. I have to say I am proud of myself. *giving myself a pat on the back*
I am confident good things will happen if isn't happening right now... But I'm sure I have set something in motion for those things to come to me.

Thank you for reading!

A short summary

Life was pretty good last year I should think. I worked and played. Ups and downs. Oh, did I tell you that I won a new phone? :) A Huawei Mate S. It was from a lucky draw at a X'mas party I went to with colleagues. I think it was the first ever expensive thing that I have ever won in my life. I still believe there will be more. :) I got a pair of new skullcandy headphones with it. Though it would have been nice to get a Sony studio headphones especially I started using 'smule' - an app for social karaoke. I am happy with it. My little computer.

Another new thing that happened to me is that I've done a laser eye surgery. It has been a bit more than half a year now since I last done it. So far so good. It took a while to get used to the idea that I don't have to take anything out of my eyes every night before bed. And it is awesome to be able to see everything when I wake up in the mornings. Not to mention I don't have to worry about not remembering to bring my contact lens cases or liquid cleaner where ever I go somewhere. I took the decision to do it because once we went to Tihany and we nearly got stranded. I didn't bring any contact lens supplies. I was already playing with the idea, but that was just the deciding point.

What else... I haven't been joining any classes, but hopefully I will be able to start some beginning Mandarin lessons.

I haven't been blogging for quite a while and a few days ago, I just had the urge to get back to it. It is like there is a piece of something missing in my life. Now that I am up from 4:30 am or 5:00 am everyday, I will be able to slot at least sometime for blogging every day.

Thank you for reading!!

Back from hiatus

Hi y'all... It's been a while. I was busy with life just like the rest of us. :) But I'm back. I hope it isn't too late to just wish everyone a Happy new year. After all today is just February. And it will be Chinese New Year soon.  Allow me to just add a lovely picture that I just took from our office a few days ago. :) Beautiful view, beautiful start of a new year.

A whole new world

I have to admit that I'm not totally on the top these past few months. Good things happened from bad things. Like my new job, new colleagues and new experiences. But there has been quite a few downers which I may talk about some months later just to be sure how everything will turn out in the end.

So many things had happened that I even forgot to talk about mother's day at BZ's school. It was simple yet there are a few additional things. The kids who are learning to play a musical instrument had short performances. BZ played the piano accompanying a classmate who was playing on the recorder. Also one of her classmates played the guitar - I think one of the few times I saw a guitar for small hands; it was cute.

Well, I'm off to finish my housework and later get ready for meet up with friends.

My daily life

I lead a simple life. Simple yet a meaningful life I believe. Even though it may seem mundane to some, but I'm happy and grateful. At least I'm not wanting. :)

Compared to my years as a SAHM, I appreciate the extra business in my life. Weekdays - work and Hungarian classes. Weekends - I spend time with family, go out with Mr. H for a movie or a drink, or go with colleagues to check out the night life or enjoy the great disco dance floor at Morrisons. :)
It is indeed a total different experience from the time I was at the kindergarten too. Meeting with more people, you learn a whole lot more as well. It took a bit of time to get use to, but I am enjoying it.

View

Entered the 4th week of work. :) I am grateful. It took a while to get used to but some people told me I adapted pretty well and quickly. This is nothing compared to what I had to go through  to get used to living in a foreign land.

Here is what I see as I look out the window every day.  Not the best view, but the river compensates it somewhat. :)

My awesome weekend

It's after 11 pm and I am still up! When I'm supposed to be asleep, resting for the first day at a new workplace tomorrow. Since I'm still up just wanted to blog about my weekend. :)

Yesterday I was out since morning with Bonnie and a friend; shopping and later ended up visiting my mom in law since we were just around her area.  Stayed and played a board game for an hour or a bit more, then we took an hour's bus ride home. To just go straight for 1 1/2 hours of ice skating - which by the way, yes..... I did learn to skate. I learnt by myself in a week. :D And still learning and practicing new moves till the season ends. So that was how my day ended yesterday. Today , I was up early, washed, cleaned, ironed clothes, went to the sauna and swam for three hours, went to my mom in law's place. By the end of the day I was beat.

I am just so excited for tomorrow now. New place, new people,  new way of life. :)

Hopefully soon I'll be posting about my first week at work.
