Happy New Year 2012; end of the world!

My Drabbit - born in Jan, head of a dragon, tail of a rabbit

Happy New Year!~

It's the year of the Dragon which is supposedly meant to be the luckiest of all years and it is also 2012, the end of the world. I feel as if time flies a little faster the older I get. I can't believe it's already near the end of the first month.

Looking back on the year 2011 and I have to say it was a pretty epic year by all accounts. I graduated, found a job, travelled to Canberra, Singapore, Malaysia, Melbourne & New Zealand. I started the 365 project which I unfortunately did not complete but still happy that I managed to go 136 days into it. I read a few books and managed to get a little bit of fitness into my inactive life.

My new year's resolutions very similar to last year's but:

1. Fitness
2. Keep track of my spendings
3. Take plenty of photos
4. Plan another trip
5. Relax more
6. Read more books; I'm aiming for a book a month
7. Eat Healthier

and I would like to add this year's motto will be:

Slow it down.

It's good to take things slowly, enjoy the little things and stress less.

I'm hoping this year will be even better and it has already kickstarted an upcoming trip to Japan in February which I am absolutely looking forward to. I attended my first bikram yoga sesh this year which I am hoping to participate in more often. Last night I went to the Laneway Night markets which was quite nice. Tonight there are Chinese New year Celebrations at the Northbridge Piazza and food stalls and performances.
