A belated resolution for the year 2009

I know this is a bit late to make resolutions at this moment, but I still have time, don’t I? These are the things I really want to do and achieving any of them will make me look back this year with contentment. The aims are somewhat tuned down in case I fail shamelessly.

  • reduce some weight, say, ten pounds. I am fat and I know it. I’ll start with swimming and improve my breast stroke.
  • learn to configure Linux servers on Debian environment. I have to break the mysteries wrapping around the server configurations.
  • finish my Ph.D. I know it is not easy, but I have to finish what I have started.
  • drive the traffic to this blog over 200 unique visitors per day.
  • make some extra money. This has never been my goal up till a year or two ago. I realize I can’t keep cynical.
  • Sleep early (12!) and brush my teeth twice. Morning brushing is not enough.
  • buy a mobile phone if I don’t go to the U.S.A this year.
  • read a few good books, especially those about political philosophy.
  • set up a social-networking website and see what I can do about it.
  • be a little adventurous. Take a little risk at a time. I am paranoid and overly cautious sometimes.
  • expect less from others and expect more from myself

    1. Thank you.

      There is a slight change of plan about my resolutions. I probably will go to study in the U.S. this fall. I am one step closer to my dreams but I also fear the unknown.

      By the way, I lost two of your comments on the Chinese learning post, when I was migrating the site. Sorry.
