Another Try

I’m probably a bit late to write again, but give me another try at writing which resolutions I’ve accomplished last year.

Today, my guidance counselor teacher handed out our 2015 resolution that we wrote last January. I forgot that I had written anything at all, and I took a proper look at it to see what I actually wrote last year.

  • Join more competitions and win
  • Raise my grade
  • Fall in love
  • Continue in student council as a secretary
  • Publish more stories, at least once a month
  • Have a 50 cm waist size
  • Run more outside of school schedule
  • Publish a blog post at least once a month
  • Having the event called RTO held in success
  • Read the Quran at least a page a day
  • More polite to the teachers
  • Eat more vegetable, less meat
  • Can see my brother off to Japan
  • Save Rp50.000 per month
  • Reach top three in my batch
  • Get taller
  • Able to drive

The things that I typed in bold are the things I failed to accomplish. But still, to be honest, I was quite happy with what I managed to scrape of last year.

Today, of course, my teacher asked us to write another resolutions for 2016, and here are what I wrote:

  • Can be there to run 17 km in August
  • High SAT scores
  • Find a life partner
  • Do the midnight prayer at least once a month
  • Do successful projects with other 44 lovely human beings
  • Paper done on time [Alternative Energy of Electricity]
  • Be more mature
  • Reach top three in my batch
  • Finish the Quran during Ramadhan
  • Fast every Monday and Thursday
  • Save up Rp20.000 per month
  • Read the Quran at least page a day
  • Open up an Artbook store
  • Minimum IELTS score of 7.5
  • Be more kind to certain people.
  • Able to drive
  • Publish 70 blog posts

Look at that, some things changed, some things not. I’ll tell you how things go next year, and cheers to dreams and unlikely goals!

  1. I have been your silent reader. But now I interest to comment in this article. Why does the res8olution of saving decrease to 20rb?

    1. Oh! Haha, I’m a bit embarrassed to answer this, but as you can tell, I failed at saving 50k per month, so I figured 20k is a lot more easier to reach 😀
