1. Stop burning the midnight oil
Like many of my teenage counterparts, I find staying up late irresistible. But having a late night surely does more harm than good to my health. I wish you all a year of quality sleep!
2. Go up in the air
I am planning a hot-air balloon trip to South America after my HKDSE, like what Carl and Russell did in Pixar's Up. I may not be able to find Paradise Falls, but travelling by hot-air balloon would definitely make for a remarkable trip.
3. Get taller
Even a centimetre would help. To make that happen, I will do more running and swimming, and drink a bucket of milk every day.
4. Become an optimist
I plan to train myself to become an optimist. I find I am getting more depressed as I grow up. Being happy will help me solve problems, and I'll paint this year with bright colours.
5. Send invitations sparingly
I need to make sure not to invite more than 60 friends to my home for the next New Year's Eve party.
6. Let bygones be bygones
To forgive and be forgiven. After all, it's a New Year and it's a new beginning!
7. Stick to a fitness regime
It's not hard to shed 10kg - but to keep it off? That's a lifestyle choice.
8. Study hard
I am not trying my best academically, but it is time to change that. Be it my Chinese results or other electives, I'm really going to try as hard as I can and achieve something better this year.
9. Speed up
I have not been a very efficient person. But no matter what I am doing this year, I am going to speed it up. I need more time to prepare for public exams and to read more and exercise.
10. Build up mileage
I have just enjoyed an awesome New Year countdown in Beijing. Not a bad start for 2013. I am looking forward to more exciting trips around the world this year!
