Well, here we are again, starting a brand-new year. Just like any other years I’m not going to expect anything positive right away, but at the same time I’m hopeful.
I’m not one of those everyday people who go out to massive parties with everyone else wearing glizty-ish clothes and wearing those New Year hats and blowing horns. I’m not very much a party person altogether and I would rather much stay home (with the family of course) for New Year’s Eve, most especially when I just came back home from work that day. Like the traditional Noche Buena after Christmas midnight mass meal we also have our own New Year’s meal. It’s nothing heavy or anything, just simple snacks and pastries and a bottle of a 10-year-old champagne from France my dad received as a present many years ago. I ate mostly crackers and two types of cheese— a cheese log/ball from Hickory Farms and the Cougar cheese wheel specially made by the agricultural students of WSU. I also drank half a (funnel) glass of champagne to incorporate with it. Afterwards I went to bed.
Here I am now writing this entry, still pondering on what to do for today. I’ve got my own resolutions set up in my head (I don’t need to write them down) and here’s hoping that I do succeed in those resolutions. One of them is to set up an exercise program at home with the help of the lovely Wii Fit that my brother and I gave to our parents for this Christmas. It became an addictive piece of game that my family had forgotten that their main goal in playing Wii Fit was to lose weight and getting in shape. I can’t wait to finally start an official program using it (at least I won’t be spending so much money on the gym or in those specialized workout clubs, such as Curves.
That’s it for now. I gotta head down and show myself to the family (yes, I woke up late) that I’m still alive and ready for 2009. I actually need to eat brunch.
