2010, what an ugly number. Is it twenty-ten? Or two-thousand and ten? Or simply o-ten? But o-ten that would make the year 2007, double-o-seven. I think it's twenty-ten.
Boucing to Adam Lambert on my headphones. Fringe too long. My new year resolution? Screw that. Only last year my resolution was so different. I remember "wishing" for an amazing boy to come into my life. Yes, my resolutions were more empty wishes than commitments. Well, looking at that now it's such a silly thing to want. I've certainly changed a lot - at least in terms of how I look at my relationships.
I've become even more independent than I thought I already was - emotionally. All I need is a job now. I'll apply for one when I get back from Taiwan.
Top Part-Time Job Choices:
- Tutoring (easy and good pay)
- Working at a race course (good pay)
- Bartending (shit pay and tiring but epic)
- Retail (shit pay... but it seems like something I'd love to do)
And no, I don't know how to bartend. But I was talking to the bartender at one of my favourite clubs and she said they would train me. That would be cool if I applied.
2010... wow such a daunting number. I fully rememember what I did in the year 2000 for my new years. And now this is ten years after that. I've lived a whole ten years in my memory. Almost half of those ten I've been here on oasis. It's quite amazing really.
I'm leaving for Taiwan in two days. For those who read or have been concerned about me being conscripted into the Tawanese army (mostly elph), it's not a problem now. I have permanent residence in New Zealand and proof of study in New Zealand so all I have to do is report to this office when I'm in Taiwan. Hopefully they don't abduct me and send me to fight the communists...
Since I'm leaving so early for Taiwan and a lot of my friends are going all over the place for uni before I come back... I've been saying quite a few farewells lately. It really is so sad. A friend is doing an exchange in Israel and another in France... and we went to the zoo together the other day. I almost cried. We were so close. But they'll be back... they'll be back. Another really close friend of mine is going to Wellington to study law for five years. He had been driving me to school every day this year. We did so much together. He's also driving me to the airport on Thursday. I might cry, I don't know. I might go visit him in Wellington once in a while. We went there together for a Model United Nations conference in July. It's a lovely and vibrant city.
There's a lot more to say, but I don't want to make this too long. I'm having a primary school reunion tomorrow, with the teacher there as well (he went to Japan but is back in New Zealand for a visit - and we all reconnected via facebook). And yesterday an exclusive group of students saw our english teacher who left for Hong Kong but came back for a visit too. My holiday's been quite eventful so far really. I like -i need- to do things all the time. I'm a compulsive extrovert. I constantly need to be with people.
Looks like I'll have to find lots of things to do in Taiwan.
Oh, my new year resolution. I've decided. Reply texts and emails faster. How dare I ignore people when people are so friendly. I guess I'm just never a "technology" person. Again, I hate screens. I like to be with them in person instead.
That's it for now... hope everyone's new years was epic!
