Popular New Year Resolutions

Photo from Psychology Today.
It is new year again? Did you do a resolution in 2010 for 2011? Were you able to accomplish your resolutions?  Will you consider doing another list of things that you will hope to change or improve in 2012? According to a research, here are the most popular new year resolutions:

1. Resolution to improve health. This includes losing some pounds and doing a regular exercise.
2. Resolution to quit vices such as smoking, excessive alcohol intake and gambling.
3. Resolution to pay debt or to maintain good credit standing.
4. Resolution to finding a job or a better job.
5. Resolution to save money either by depositing in a bank or investing to some business or stocks.
6. Resolution to travel.
7. Resolution to spend more quality time with family.
8. Resolution to do charity works.
9. Resolution to learn new things.
10. Resolution to keep a hobby.

Unfortunately, more often than not, only two out of the ten resolutions get to be done because of the following reasons:

1. Unclear and vague goals.
2. Failure to keep track of the progress of the resolution. 
3. Weak self-control. 

Remember, it is better to list only one resolution that you know you can adhere to than to list ten that you know you will not fully commit yourself to do.

Have a Happy New Year everyone!

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
********************
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
