Belated New Year's Resolutions

And suddenly it is March, the first quarter of 2012 is almost over. The first quarter of this year has been even crazier than ever. It has also reinforced once again that "Man proposes, God disposes". Now I know better than to fight life too much, things happen for a reason and everything will turn out ok. All cliches but all so true. So after a flurry of activities, things have settled down to a new calm at work. As such, I want to take advantage of the changes on the work front and start doing some other stuff in life like:-

1. More social responsibility and giving back to society. I have a proposal which I will post in more detail once things are firmed up. I am pretty excited about this one. And maybe also make some microfinance loans on Kiva for some underprivileged women in developing countries.

2. Somewhat related to 1 above, I want to do some volunteer work except in the area of arts and heritage. I used to be a volunteer museum guide, but since I relocated to Sydney, I had been on a leave of absence and had not resumed my guiding upon my return. I think I might be over it and am now thinking of volunteering to conduct heritage walking tours to marry my interests in heritage, architecture, design together wtih volunteerism and also getting some exercise in the process.

3. Which leads me to point 3 which is getting more exercise including walking home from work 2 times a week and a weekly swim. And going back to yoga.

So this looks like a belated New Year's Resolutions list. Whatever it is, I am going to try my darnedest to achieve all that. Oh and bake more bread.
