 I don't really have any of my own though, having never been a resolution-y sort of person. Still, 2013 has been such an utter shitstorm of a year* for me that I feel like I ought to outline some of the ways in which I intend to make 2014 better:
  • Most important, I'm going to go back to grad school, even if I end up having to stay out for another semester and go back to Australia and jump through stupid timeconsuming expensive bureaucratic hoops sfdgkljdfglksdjfsldkfj oh please let that not happen
  • Grad work will be a 9-7 job**. After that I am not allowed to work, and must do other things like watch tv, play games, and generally enjoy myself and/or catch up on housekeeping
  • I'm going to aim to cook for myself more often than not. Which basically means that 4 out of 7 of both lunches and dinners will not be 'super delicious but expensive food from one of the food carts', 'taking out a piece of bread, spreading nutella on it and calling it dinner', or 'frozen/canned meal I bought from the supermarket'
  • Also on the subject of cooking, I'm going to aim for at least one new (to my cooking skills) dish a week
  • I'm going to stick with HabitRPG (I'd go on, but I already wrote a whole post singing its praises. Suffice to say it works for me)
  • I'll keep up the exercise regimen I started this year and hopefully improve on it
* There's been some good from all the bad, like getting on antidepressants and as a result discovering that my life doesn't have to suck, but that doesn't mean I have to pretend to enjoy the path I took to get there

** Not actually intending to work for 10 hours each day. More that all my work has to be done within work hours, and too bad for me if I have a deadline tomorrow but spent all day looking at pictures of cats. This is my attempt to implement this 'work-like balance' thing I keep hearing about

First thing I want to say is that the way Livejournal keeps changing random crap is totally gaaaay.

Anywho, I don't usually do memes but its been a long time, its early and I'm bored, so here we go. Format copy pasted from Ali's lj because I'm lazy.

Four things many don’t know:
[1] About Meyer-Briggs - like all personality tests it has its limitations but it's the most accurate tool I've seen so far and has actually given me insights into how to deal with other people and stuff.
[2] The goth metal band Moonspell is Portugese (thanks Ali :p)
[3] Dream Theatre is awesome
[4] India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh all used to be the same country. In 1947 they were split into India and East and West Pakistan. Then one of the Pakistans became Bangladesh later (thanks guys from work :p)

Four movies I can watch over and over:
[1] The 5th Element - it doesn't take itself too seriously, I just can't explain why I love it so much
[2] Monty Python and the Holy Grail, or whatever it's called - self-explanatory really, if you don't appreciate Python humour then boo to you
[3] The Court Jester - Danny Kay singing and just generally being silly. It's all about the chalice from the palace, baby
[4] I don't watch a whole lotta movies :)

Four places I have lived (I've lived in the same house my whole life, so this is gonna be silly) :
[1] Sydney - North Bondi
[2] In a house
[3] In dorms in the Technion in Haifa while I was in Israel
[4] In various other random dorms in Israel

Four TV shows I love:
[1] Babylon 5
[2] Southpark
[3] Coupling
[4] Whose line is it anyway?

Four places I have been on vacation:
[1] Israel
[2] Melbourne
[3] Fingal, on the Central Coast
[4] Blue Mountains
yeh so sue me, I've only been out of the country once and it wasn't even really a vacation..

Four of my favourite foods:
[1] Dark chocolate
[2] Honey chicken
[3] Toast with Nutella and cheese - it's better than it sounds, trust me
[4] Sushi rolls with fetta and salmon

Four places I’d rather be:
[1] Asleep in bed - I woke up at 6:30am this morning, which is a respectable sleep in from my usual time of 3am but a very boring time to be awake
[2] Socialising with friends
[3] Somewhere less humid than Sydney
[4] Work...? Well, if I was there now it would be nearly over and then we could go to Oporto together afterwards, so yeh.

Currently listening to:
Not counting the fact that it's kinda impossible to be listening to more than one thing at once :p
[1] Dream Theatre, any and all of it
[2] Jason Mraz - Life is wonderful - practically on loop for the last few days
[3] Stupid crappy pop + christmas stuff at work
[4] Nickelback - Saving Me

Four other people who will be tagged:
Ali already tagged most of my obvious targets, let's see who's left on my friends list *looks*
[1] Sara(h)
[2] Acute
[3] Jenny Leung
[4] Ron
