There should be a checklist somewhere... Labels: musings
Don't really know what else to ask for beside that, really. Contrary to popular believe I am a happy person, easily content at what life brings.
Then there should be another checklist for next year. Checklist, not resolutions mind you, because resolutions are pointless.
Sit for and pass Level 1 CFA. Preferably in July. Otherwise December also can. Not because I need it, but just because I want to say I can do it. If you are a Finance person and would like to tell me that I am a lunatic for wanting to do it for the fuck of it, well save your breath. No less than 3 of my close friends have told me that only crazy people do a CFA 'for the fuck of it'. So yes, I have been told that I am mad. Nothing new there.
Then I wanna climb Kinabalu. Then climb Tahan.
Yeah, very disjointed. Not like me at all. But you see, I have been spending the last 2 weeks on leave and reading 3 books, all of them about different things, and I keep hopping from book to book, and all of a different genre. First, there's King of the Godfathers which is a true story of er, The King of the Godfathers. Then there's Asian Godfathers which I think every working adult should read. And lastly Nelson Mandela's autobiography which came highly recommended by Penthesilea. All very deep stuff. Plus, I have been reading Stiglitz's Globalisation and Its Discontents for the past 5 months or so but my puny brain can't seem to absorb all the facts, so I keep re-reading the earlier chapters.
But enough talk la. I will leave you with my annual mantra, which I think you guys have read before:
I am not going to wish you an awesome year ahead, because everybody knows that's not going to happen. Inevitabliy, there will be setbacks, disappointments and heartbreaks. I do, however wish you the strength to overcome all that shit, the tenacity to piss in the wind and the guts to stare down the barrel of a gun.
And above all, to enjoy the new year.
.... (WTF, kan?)
hehe, other than that, love your annual mantra, I'll prolly plagiarise it one of these days. But until then, my new year wish to you is to have another awesome year without MCs!
Buying new shirts, new shoes, new bags, supping up cars, modifying exhausts, buying new cameras...that's all 'waste of money' la. This is fine.
happy new year, vincent.
should have climbed mt.k before the packages were introduced though.
Are. You. Serious!?!?
Not one? Half??(lol) OMG. Too crazy. But WOW! =D =D
