Start by looking back

2012 is almost over. Looking back, I could say that I did not make the best out of this year. 1. I changed job 2. I was given an award at the office 3. I got sick - MPS (which still hurts from time to time) 4. I made new friends Those are the only things that I could think of. See, I did not do anything special. Nothing out of the box for me, though the award thrilled me. I did not dare explore greener fields. It's okay, though. It is not the end of the world. I can still make new things happen in 2013 like- 1. I will enroll in sewing class 2. I will study Korean language 3. I will enroll in Yoga 4. I will venture the Stock Market It's like a Resolution (as most would put it). But instead of creating a habit, I will actually "do" something to form a habit. So, what about you, what have you done this year and what do you plan for next year? Cheers~

This year... I'm not sure what I did! I lost a little weight and have done a few fun things that made life easier. Next year I will work harder on learning Hebrew. I keep saying that I want to, but haven't really applied myself to it. I will also work harder on my blogs. I might sell my house and move... we shall see.

I love the sound of Hebrew and I want to learn it well enough to read the Old Testament myself in its original language. I don't know where I'm going if I sell the house. Strange, I know.

I never really know how Hebrew sounds.. I will take a look at it in Youtube.. I like learning about how different alphabets/characters are written.

Wow, this is the first time I heard someone wants to learn Hebrew. Now, I am curious about Hebrew as well.. If you sell your house, I assume you are moving to a much better place..

Well, like you said 2012 has been an interesting yr. There has been some Good as well as some I would have loved to have changed, but personally I think it is teaching me a lot about life and what I need to focus on from here. Pretty much my main focus lately has been on my Health and trying to get everything going in better order so I can start 2013 off with a bang. But no matter what, I am keeping Focused and always wishing for the Best.

Hi there! I am also trying to focus more on my health. My back aches from time to time due to myofascial pain syndrome. I'm not as active as before! Hopefully this thing will go away. Let us do exercises and eat more fruits and veggies! Oh, and lots of water too!

My one goal for next year is to be able to eliminate my getting big tummy. I will be determined in doing an exercise every other day. But hopefully, i get to go home at dismissal, unlike this year where sometimes i have to wait for my boss to finish signing the documents on her table.

Ooh that is hard to do, getting rid of big tummy That is one of my troubles too! Exercises are so painful and sometimes I feel lazy doing them. Crunches, I believe, are good belly busters!

When I look back then feel the year is not bad but not good also some time bad or some time good. Good because celebrate the 1st day of the year as new year and enjoy lot bad because I loose my interest in my coaching classes and since last 4 months no students in my class because I not send the handbill in news paper or no add in other way about my Institute. Now hope in new year again my interest will came.

Every year, I live under others motivation, while I just dream of being something odd or strange. 2012, the last year of my university, I gave my best shot to won the scholarship, but I failed. And then I have part-time job in a lubricant company, where I devote myself to accomplish the job tasks. Thanks to my persistence, I got the appreciation from my boss. After the beginning of my senior semester, I did not focus on finding a job coz I have no motivation and goals. Now I change to get a further study, I really feel shame about myself. I wish that in the next year, I can transform myself into an valuable and powerful members of the society. Cheers!

I love the sound of the French language. Maybe someday I will learn it too. I watched the movie Amelie and it got me interested in learning French before.

I made it to this date in one piece so I feel I did something good. I wish now to save more cash and treat myself to more stuff.

That is a very positive outlook. I like that! Well, I could also say, I made it this far and I am still in one piece so that is good! Yeah, saving, that is one battle I have to tackle as well..

Hi girl! Well, 2012. This is the busiest, the most challenging yet the most fruitful, the 2nd most successful and one of the best year in my entire life. I love this year. On my offline career, this is the year that brings many challenges and activities for me because of the training I undergone and successful in the sense that I was able to pass the examination that is a requirement for promotion i the years to come. With regards to my online career, this is the year that I was able to understand more about online matters, I was able to gain additional knowledge,friends and income. What I can do perhaps is to continue with what I started and look for ways to improve my present performance. Plans for the next year, perhaps, I could book some travel so that I can also compensate the time that I was not able to be with my family during this year. I will enjoy more on 2013. Have a nice day!

Wow from your discussion I can see that you are a nice girl with good planning,I even do not have a clear plan at all,I always feel confused by the society. Well I have one question,why you plan to learn the korean language?Because there are too many people can speak that language,as you know there are more than 2 million Chinese Korean(Chaoxian nationality) can speak Korean by nature,so I think other language will be more popular such as arabia language and some European language.

Hi! I like to learn Korean because I love watching Korean films and I love how they write their letters! So cute! I've learned Japanese before but I am not yet fluent and I also want to learn German language but this one sounds though to learn

I do charity work, which really makes me feel happy. Sometimes, I don't think I do enough as there is such a need in the world. But, I realize that I am only one person and can only do what I can. A New Year is like a new beginning. My plans for next year is to develop my photography and to continue to help others when I can.
• Philippines

Your deeds are really good. You should definitely keep them going. I also wanted to learn photography but I don't have a good camera.. What camera do you use?
