My 2010 Highlights

Come Rainy days, Storm nights, Cloudy afternoons, Sunny mornings, Misty dawn, and random Lightning. I will be the SKY that influence, understand, accepts and encompasses all of them! 
Many events, experiences and things have come to pass this year 2010 (Metal Tiger). I believed to have achieved some degree of success and fulfillment this year but of course since life finds a way to balance things, there are also some frustrations. I didn't actually realized all the happenings until I reflected upon in it. So let's start from last year's Kaizen Plan as to what I actually accomplished: (Blue - accomplished; Red - not)

1. To be slightly more objective - definitely accomplised
2. Act like an adult once in a while - super fail, I became more childish
3. Spend more time with myself and enjoy life - more outings, trips outside cebu..hehehe
4. Spend more time doing good deeds and being an effective citezen - Immersed myself in local history and culture
5. Fulfill more writing projects - paid posts, and really lots of backlogs so over the top ni
6. Blog about stuff my readers actually care about? - definitely more useful blogposts
7. Find a way to make more money - well I quit my job last july and has been struggling in the freelance/business world
8. Admit to shortcomings, should any arise - HAHAHAHAH definitely more crazy
9. Reduce the size of my ego by 10 percent>hopefully my condescending side subsides - err CHA-CHA (1step forward, 2 step backward and vice versa?)
10. Exercise regularly? -easier said than done though - though I was finally able to join a RUN but not consistent at all
11. Plant a tree, build a house or make a lot of people smile - had opportunities to plant and build but was not able to do it, but I was able to give smiles
12. Grow at least 2 inches! (evilsmirk) - since July, I was working in a BPO Firm so that's reversed Body Clock and after that I basically sleep ridiculously late so there goes the height goal.
13. Less annoying and whiny but more thoughtful & kinder - partial partial on all counts
14. Attend photography classes if I ever get my own camera 1st - got an SLR but no classes yet
15. Learn how to cook something (one at a time..amf) - Cooked in AICA!!! (Cooking Experience HERE)
16. Stick to budget and create more income streams -  on and off..oh crap...
17. Find a better-paying job, or perhaps a job with less pressure? - so I quit my job? and tried business?
18. Try to get at least six hours and at most eight hours of rest - erratic sleeping schedule
19. Read the books I got for gifts  - no books read unfortunately
20. Don’t be a litterbug and help the environment (I will collect recyclables perhaps to sell?) - YEAH!!
21. Fulfill plans (life, love, business, professional and the like) - LOVE nalang pffftt
22. Keep smiling -  :-)
