Turning Thirty-Two

Turning Thirty-Two

Today’s the day I turn thirty-two, so I’m another year older. Like last year, I requested the day off for my birthday, and I requested the day after as sick leave, thus giving myself a four-day weekend as a present. I’d been planning this since September, so it was a lovely thing to look forward to in my birthday month — ironic since I’d been getting a ton of days off this month as it is, haha! All the days off aside, I am truly grateful to my understanding bosses who allowed me to take the days off. I didn’t tell anybody at work it was my birthday, but I’m sure they know now because I’m friends with a couple of co-workers on Facebook! I decided to take the low-key route :)

2016 Review

2016 Review

2016 is ending, and I’ve set up a quick poll to see which columns my visitors enjoy the most. Please take a minute to do the poll. Moving on, it’s time for me to write my annual review post. This is the year where I kept track of my life on Evernote, so a lot of what I’ll write in my recap will be from there along with my blog. This year has been slightly more exciting (and stressful) compared to last year, especially when I changed jobs in August. That aside, I did have a pretty good year, and I am proud of myself for going through some crazy (and fun) times. I do hope that 2017 will be an even better year for me (and everyone else), and I wish everyone one of us a fantastic new year! Read on if you want to see my recaps. If not, see you all in 2017!

The Importance of Bum Days

Last year I blogged about being an introvert. For those curious about my MBTI type, I fluctuate between an INTJ or ISTJ. What doesn’t fluctuate is that I’m an introvert. I’ve also come to realise that I am also a social or an outgoing introvert. As an introvert, I gain energy by being alone with my hobbies, but when I am with the right people, I’ll be super outgoing and actually gain energy by being around others just like an extrovert. But I can’t do that all the time. My job alone drains me because I’m dealing with what feels like ten thousand people on a daily basis that requires me to be quite talkative. On Saturdays, I usually designate that day to meet with friends, but Sunday is what I call my “bum day”.

Fitness Files: The First Month

I survived my first month of my new fitness regime. I blogged before my plans of hiring a personal trainer, signing up at Body & Seoul to take FightFit, and taking things slowly. Some of my plans didn’t fall through, but I am satisfied with what I’ve accomplished so far. In fact, my dad was so impressed with what I’ve been doing that he offered to pay my trainer for next month. Yay! Thank you, Daddy! That aside, here is a summary of my first month.

Fitness Files: The Beginning

I’ve mentioned before that I have plans this year to improve my health by exercising, eating right, and quitting smoking. Well, I haven’t been doing well on those three things at all. That big photography contest I organised in February kept me busy starting in January, and then in March I was just exhausted from that project, so I had to put my health plans on the backburner. I hadn’t really thought about getting in shape for a long time, but then I saw one of my acquaintances share her experiences with her personal trainer a few weeks ago, and that started to turn some wheels in my head. Seeing her working out with good results encouraged me to start a new fitness plan.
