It's that time of year again: the end. If I had to describe this year in just one word, I'd probably pick "dramatic". So many unexpected things happened - some good, some bad - and I'm still trying to figure things out, but I won't get into that.
2009 sounds like a good time to start anew, this year, instead of coming up with a long list (since I already have one here) of resolutions, I'm just going to state the two that I feel I've been trying to achieve during all of 2008 and put them here.

1. Smile more - apparently my mouth is in a perma-frown according to everyone I know (especially my mother). I guess I'll just have to do whatever it takes to be a little more fake. ;)

2. Become less shy - this has been a huge problem since... when I was about 8. Before that, I was probably the most outgoing kid in my class.

So 2009, here I come! And you'd better not ruin my plans.

And since this is an end-of-the-year post, I feel obliged to be cheesy and leave you with two quotes. Just remember, even though:

“Into each life some rain must fall, some days must be dark and dreary.” - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


"No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn." - Hal Borland

    I also need to smile more :P If I don't, I'd probably be Miss Grumpy-face throughout my senior high school year XD I'm not shy though, but I'm overly outspoken :D

    Smile more and become less shy? So you're going to be an out-going creep? Good luck with that! Happy new year!

    Love the quotes =) I remember I used to be frowning all the time, and now I'm just opposite *sigh* =P Hope you have a great 2009!

    Smiling is awesome. And not being shy is also awesome. So, go out there and accomplish those things :D

    I'm quite the opposite of you, I seem to be always smiling, even though I shouldn't be (like in really serious moments, haha). :P

    Good luck with your resolutions! :)

Something to say?
