    Color Coding:

    I have crossed off 23 items on the list so far. There are a few more that I think I can accomplish on the coming year, if I am determined (eg. learn to juggle, archery, to do a split).

    I have replaced a few items with new ones to better suit my current wants and needs. The first list that I did, some of the items are not really what I wanted, but it was on others' lists, so I kinda copied them and placed in my own list. So after two years and knowing myself better, I removed them and try to replace them with new items. The list might change again, or get longer, but right now, these items on the list are what I really wanted to try, and hopefully I can achieve them before I hit 30.

    So, this is my boring and not-so-exciting bucket list. December is here, and it's about time for another round of New Year Resolutions planning. I did not do well on this year's resolutions (did I even make one this year? LOL), but I am much more determined to do better next year. I have started writing and planning since last week, but there is still a lot more fine-tuning to do for the plans and goals to be achieved effectively. I will share more when I am finally done with the planning, hopefully by end of this month. =)

    Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week!
