Bye Bye 2012 & Hello 2013

Bye Bye 2012 

It's the time of the year where i take stock of my resolution and my achievement in the current year and set targets and dreams for the coming year..... 

well, out of the 8 targets that i set as my 2012 resolution, i achieved 5 of them..... 

(1) i managed to achieve more work-life balance this year .... thanks to having an attached teacher with me, my workload was shared and thanks to the ATPP course, i was excused from having to plan and execute aesthetic day 2012... =P .... and thanks to the promotion this year, i no need to work that hard on weekends anymore... wahahahaha.... which equals to me having more time for myself and for meeting up with friends.... =) 


(2) once a term chua family outing was also carried out with a meni + pedi with 蔡妈咪, board games @ minds cafe on Mother's Day and a visit to Art Science Museum for the Harry Potter exhibition. As for end of the year, it was a co-sponsored family holiday to Bangkok for mummy and the 3As. 


(3) went on a week holiday to taiwan with mr ang and parents-in-law and had lots of fun.... =) 


(4) started my Art Teacher Practitioner Program (ATPP) program.... though super stress at having to churn out many many artworks and having to exhibit at least 7 of them, i enjoyed the process and the lessons alot.... it's one of the rare courses where i really learnt alot of skills & strategies which i can apply at work and felt that time spent at the course was well spent de oh... 


(5) and yup yup yup.... i'm still happily married to mr ang..... the keyword here is not 'married' but 'happily'..... 我是幸福的.... thank you mr ang for doing most of the housework, tolerating all my nonsense, giving me plentiful of hugs & kisses and for loving me so much despite my laziness, nua-ness and boring-ness.... 


other achievements not in the list includes:

(6) went to hong kong for year end holiday with Mr Ang, his bro & bro's gf


(7) getting nominated for OYEA....though wasn't even short-listed for the interview but was happy enough to be nominated by the school... =)..... and also won the oca team award for planning the teachers' day celebration in school 


(8) taught P1 again this year...happiness to the max... .it's my 4th year as a P1 teacher... one of the few things that can really make me jump for joy is finding out that i'm a P1 teacher again the following year lo..... i'm just so easily satisfied.... 


and now for the 3 targets that i din achieve in 2012.... =(

(1) no 龙宝宝 .... may not be a bad thing though.... given that i'm in the mist of my art education training which is ending nov 2013, i hope i get a year-end 小马宝宝 though.... best is i can spend my maternity leave in UK while mr ang does his phd there in his 3rd yr.... 


(2) attended 8 out of 16 dance lessons before deciding to call it quit.... mab and i were just so unmotivated.... wahahaha.... 


(3) din go for any dive... =(
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello 2013

(1) i want to get into and clear the advanced diploma in arts education in NIE..... means i need to clear the interview in Feb first ..... wish me lots of luck and more creative thoughts and interviewing skills..... 


(2) seriously need to lose some weight.... been going for short runs with mr ang since 18 dec and so far manage to clock an average of 3 runs a week.... added 100m for every run and clocked 2.7km for the latest run on 30 december 2012..... really hope to sustain it even when school reopens.... 


(3) continue the once-a-term chua family outing.... hopefully a chua family holiday.....should be a trip sponsored by me and alfred.... so Alfred Chua, i help u make a resolution too k??? which is to get ur promotion and higher pay increment so that u can sponsor more for the trip k????? heeee..... 


(4) maintain work-life balance....means no work during the hols and no work during the weekend..... equals to more time to nua and more time for friends..... weird that mr ang is not in the equation right???? cos he dun really require much of my time de.... he's too busy giving tuition, exercising and studying.... even if he has the time, we also prefer to just nua at home.... wahahaha..... 


(5) stay HAPPILY married to mr ang.. =*


(6) i wanna go korea / australia / new zealand for at least 1.5 weeks of holiday either in june / dec.... 


(7) i wanna go bali / redang for a beach holiday... would be a bonus if i can go for a dive too.... =) 


(8) stay positive and focus more on the blessings and less on the faults....life's so sad to be unhappy about everything.... from train break down in that 1 out of the 100 trips that was made or slow network in that hour out of 24 hours a day.... why be so sad when u can be happy 95% of the time???... Smile people ... =) 


(9) I want to be a P1 teacher for core subjects and have many many art classes.... this dream came true liao cos school timetable is out.... i m a P1 english teacher with 4 classes of art....wahahaha..... total no. of teaching periods is only 26 a week.... i'm so blessed.... =) .... so looking forward to a slack slack work year in 2013... 


(10) I want to get back the $1500 which i lent to my JC classmate  in august 2011 before CNY 2013. A sum of money which he promised to return within a month yet it took more than a year liao and the worse part is that he had gone MIA.... angry to the max.... 


(11) I hope that my blog gets at least 500 reads every day... =) ... and maybe 3 more followers??? heeee.....
