I am now thirty-three. I don’t feel any different from turning thirty-two. Like last year, I requested my birthday off, which gave me a three-day weekend and a three-day work week! Nothing beats a day off, a long weekend, and a short work week for a birthday, honestly. On top of that, I treated myself to a facial, met up with my old high school teacher, bought myself some wine and chocolates, and ate delicious food. This is self-love to the fullest, and I’m totally living it up, haha! That said, I’ve also thought about what I would like to do and accomplish in my thirty-third year of living after some of my events in 2017. I’ve listed below my major goals.
– Better understand 401K and TSP.
– Open a Roth IRA.
– Open a new credit card.
– Save $XXX amount of money.
– Donate to my seven charities of choice.
I have both a 401K and a TSP, but I have no idea how it works, so I need to remedy that. Also, I’ve been meaning to open a Roth IRA last year, but I didn’t get around to it, but I will this year. I’m also eyeing a couple of new credit cards, the luxurious ones, so I can utilise the benefits on them. Also, I met my savings goals last year, and I would like to meet it again this year. Same thing with my donation goals!
– Get a new driver’s license and drive more.
– Learn how to operate a washer and a dryer.
– Eat healthier and exercise more.
– Quit smoking sooner than later.
– Look for MA diploma and replace it if not found.
– Apply for jobs and land a new position.
I’ve decided to up my game with my driving situation and get a new license. I had one, but long story short (and this issue still makes me mad as hell), I wasn’t grandfathered in with the new regulations, so I lost my license. I’m still not happy to get a new one and fork over $$$ for it, but I need to do it. I also need to learn how to do laundry. That’s the only chore I’ve never mastered, so this is the year I will learn. And of course, I have the usual health goals from previous years. My MA diploma one, though, that’s new. I couldn’t find it when I moved last year, so I need to look carefully one more time and order a replacement one if needed. Finally, I’ll keep up with my job applications and hope for a better job of my liking.
– Travel to two new places in Korea.
– Travel to Guam to see bestie.
– Travel to Japan once choosing from Matsue, Sapporo, Sendai, or Yokohama.
I’ve travelled a lot last year, with many of my trips being spontaneous. This year, I’ll cut back on travel, but I’ll still visit a couple of places to satisfy my wanderlust. I’d like to also see more of Korea while I’m living here, so here’s to more domestic travelling!
– Read fifteen new books and mangas.
– Play three new games.
– Watch five new films or anime series.
– Practise piano more.
– Learn more Japanese.
Lastly, my hobbies are set at a reasonable number. I’ve a tendency to re-read/re-play/re-watch things, but I also want to consume new things, too. I also have to remember that I have a piano and Japanese learning apps, so I should improve those two hobbies of mine, too! I look forward to seeing what I can do this year.
