2011 in retrospective

Ahhh, 2012 is nearing. It's been a tradition for me to capture my thoughts on the year that has past. Been doing so for 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007. In 2007, i started triathlon and bought my Mini Cooper S. 4 years on, i have stopped triathlon, but still driving my Mini Cooper S.

The main highlight of the year is i got married. To the man i have been dating for the past 8 years. Eight years of craziness, tolerance, and love. And what a geek, we now have a proposal date of 24th July, cos he loves me 24/7. *cue awwwwwww*. That's what you get for dating a geek. We held a lovely wedding on July 16th, 2011 at Ritz Carlton. The people whom i always love were there, and it was a nice cosy celebration. Because, i knew everyone there well enough to invite them.

Most people lose weight prior to their wedding, i'm an oddball. I lost weight only after my wedding, i blame the husband for failing to adequately feed me. But that's another resolution off my 2011 checklist of resolutions. To keep my fitness, i've only been running. It's much easier to just tie up shoelaces and just head out. Being noncommittal, it's easier for me to just go out and run. I haven't been swimming, sadly, even when I'm so good at it. All because of my hair. Ahhhh well, the bimbo in me is speaking.  I also tried to learn how to rock climb. But sadly i'm not very good nor nimble at it. I kept up with yoga, which is possibly the most kick-butt progress i've made in fitness. Bending over forward is now way easier than before.

I've made new friends for 2011, and lost contact with others. But that's life. I can't keep up with the lifestyles of everyone, but i do wanna try. That's always been my resolution. Over the years, i came to love more, and forgive quickly. Those seconds, minutes, hours, and days would tick on by, and i don't want to regret anything that possibly might make me smile. Embrace the optimism, and declutter. Some things got more complicated; some thoughts got simpler. The end of 2011, i can only say i'm happy with the way things are going. I end up knowing more about people and loving them to bits. And i will still follow my mantra : "if people are happy, so am i, but i can't please the world".

And in 2012, i wonder what's next.
