New Year resolutions

Hello Huai Tian! Time to write New Year resolutions! This time you have to follow them. Please.

  1. Have self-discipline.
    So that you can control yourself from spending too much time on your phone, FB, Twitter, Whatsapp. You need to use this time to study. If not, spend the time doing more meaningful things like playing the piano, reading, reflecting, thinking, learning, blogging and exercising.
    Remember that you have a dream to become a doctor. You have to get straight A's in A Level, which is tough. You need to put in the effort! If you do your best, no regrets. Time can't be turned back, and life is too short to have regrets. I know it's hard to push yourself to study, but it will be worth it.
  2.  Lose weight until 50kg! Argh!
    Actually, everything ultimately links to having self-discipline and managing time well. You've got to plan your time well and then follow the plan to get things done.
    Your appetite needs to be smaller! Hahaha. You've eaten too much during the holidays, and now your appetite is bigger. But more importantly, you need to exercise more! Be it skipping rope, skating, swimming or running around, just do something! If you want to eat more, you'll just have to expend more energy. That's how the people of Belgium remain so skinny although they love fries so much. Exercise!

  3. Control your temper!
    You raise your volume very often, especially towards daddy and mummy! D: Yes, yes. You need to be more like a girl. You're so violent and rough. T.T Be gentler! Try not to scold vulgarities, even in your head! Be courteous. Have more manners, like opening the door or lift door for people, letting people go first and giving up seats.
    Be kinder to people. Although you have the urge to say whatever is in your mind, they are often hurtful, and will damage your relationship with others. Please filter your words before you say them.

  4. Be thrifty.
    It's hard to control yourself, I know, especially when the people around you spend so much, e.g on cute and pretty things, too much clothes, expensive food. But always remember it's a virtue, and you should be proud and happy that you're thrifty. You're not rich. You haven't even started earning money yet. All your angpaos and allowance are from your parents' hard-earned money. That's another reason YOU SHOULD STUDY HARD. Your mum's body is aching everywhere from working hard to feed you, you ass.
    That being said, you shouldn't be stingy. It's in your Hakka blood, but you must try to let go. When you need to spend, just spend it. Money is for spending, on necessary items. When people give you presents, treat you to food, or do you favours, you should return them.

  5. Learn to cook or bake.
    Baking looks fun. :) I want to try baking cookies.

Whoever reads this, don't judge. Because I'm just writing this while being emo. But nobody visits my blog anyway. That's why there's no need to privatise this blog.

I discovered 2 tubs of Häagen-Dazs in the freezer today. I couldn't believe how such an expensive brand of ice cream appeared in my house. I was shocked. I felt so touched, and I actually couldn't bear to even start eating it, which never happens for regular ice cream like Walls.

And just now, Mum just came home, and I asked her when she bought it. She went, "Oh, right. I bought that for daddy because he's too skinny." I felt damn disappointed, you can't even imagine how someone would feel over merely ice cream. I asked her why she didn't buy Häagen-Dazs for me. Then she said something like: Buy for you? It's Mothers' Day, and you didn't even buy for me. I felt damn wronged I started crying. I know I cry over little things. SO WHAT. I usually just eat cheap ice cream, and I could even feel touched over seeing Häagen-Dazs in my house. I was never willing to splurge over my favourite dessert, and I always just buy cheap alternatives. I had to go…

One of the Things I Hate The Most

Today morning, Mummy flew to Penang to for my Ah Ma's wake, so my Er Gu Zhang is staying at my house while she's away, to ensure Daddy won't starve or fall down. Bcos I go to school until quite late.

Oh yeah, lemme digress a bit first. I had my LSM3211 CA1 today, and although I didn't finish studying, I felt that it was so much better than last sem. What's different is that I tried harder to study this time, and yesterday night, I managed to stop myself from watching the latest episodes of 2D1N and 稍息立正我爱你! I know the proper thing to do is to finish studying, but I really did improve from last sem. For that, I need to praise myself, encourage myself, pat myself, because I learned that scolding myself is just going to discourage me. I have been a bad student since secondary school, and I think I've improved the most in this period of time. I am a perfectionist. I am not praising myself, because that's not a good thing. My brain used to turn off every time th…


WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAPPEN?! WHY CAN'T I CONTROL MYSELF BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE? I'm so sorry mummy. You're always so hardworking to raise me, but I never studied hard. Now my lab report is going to be late. Why do I always regret only when it's too late, but I repeat it again and again every time even though I know the consequences? I really hope this is the last time. Do not repeat your mistakes please Huai Tian. I feel so exhausted at my own behaviour and how I always give in to watching shows until I'm right before the deadline. Why am I like that? I even went to visit the counsellor. Why can't I change? I feel so bad for my mum... that she only has one daughter but I turned out like this. Please. I want to pull back my grades back up. PLEASE
