"Everyday is a new day
Just like yesterday
But it'll be a better day"
- Lord of Geeks

Well, this New Year isn't particularly exciting nor anything in particular. Of course, that's due to the activities we were doing. But then again, calm and easy is the way I like it.

I don't know how the hell but I somehow managed to miss the timing to post on the 1st of January. Which adds to the list of "bad ways to start a new year". Anyway, I have done this for quite awhile now; writing resolutions and not particularly following them.

Still, my resolution for this year shall be the same as last year.


I can't stress this hard enough. It's not like I've not been doing work of any sort. It's not like I'm just rotting my days away. I study very hard, just not in the right areas.

Still, I've read that having vague resolutions like this doesn't help me in following through, so for the sake of it. And to test it out, I shall try to write some very specific resolutions.

*inserts random joke
A: What is your resolution for 2013!
B: 1920 by 1080.

Though the word "resolution" doesn't really make a lot of sense to me, the only thing that I can think of is my monitor resolution. So instead of resolutions, it'll be promises to myself. At least I will feel a tad depressed breaking my own promises. Let's hope this'll work.

  1. Finish my final year project in a timely fashion. Specifically before the end of January.
  2. Score As for all my modules. (even though it's a little too late but it's better than nothing)
  3. Exercise more and get in shape.
  4. Have regular sleeping habits. (Sleep by 12AM)
  5. Find a way to create a >50mbps wireless link at home.
  6. Set up a database server for me to play around with.
  7. Set up Virtual Application Streaming
  8. Set up PXE Boot Server
  9. Set up proper redundant backups with NAS. (rsync)
  10. Eat as healthily as possible (fruits everyday)

That's all the things I could think off the top of my head. And I made it very specific. Hopefully I would be able to accomplish all of them.

If you're wondering why there are no pictures, that's because it was drizzling half the time. It was really dark and we were tired as hell. Crashed at a friend's place for awhile before heading home to rest. Had my friends buy breakfast over for me in the morning. I swear, that is probably the best way to start a day and a year.

So all in all, I suppose 2013 wasn't that bad of a start. But judging from this, it's probably gonna be a bumpy ride and I simply have to see the good in all situations I'm in.

Happy New Year 2013 everyone!
