Tine’s New Year Resolutions for 2009

2009 On A Hill

Stop collecting makeup; only buy when they are truly unique.

Yeah I know, weird, right, for a beauty blogger to stop collecting makeup?! The problem is now I have too much makeup which I am never going to finish, and it really doesn’t help when I keep buying more. My dresser is running out of space to store them. From now on, at least I’m really hoping to, I’ll be on a lookout for classic items, or something that really catches my eye. This is one of the main resolutions for next year, and by far, is going to be very tough to keep. If I don’t, oh well, you’re going to have more to read about here anyway 🙂

Launch my own line of … something

There really IS a something, but I’m only going to do it after Chinese New Year, as I would only be back in Melbourne then. I’m really excited (and a tad apprehensive, to be honest) about this one. I’ve been working on it for a month now. All will be revealed in due time.

Finish up something I’ve started

I tend to have this problem where I’d start doing something, but halfway through, I’d leave it and move on to something else. I have to start seeing things through, may it be good or bad.

Exercise more and lose weight

Sigh, this has been my new year resolution for years now, but I’ve never been able to achieve my target. In fact, I plunged even further from it when I came here, and got through the winter months with comfort food. Please, for once, let me be able to do this this year!

Laugh more, worry less

Too many frown lines from the ups and downs of 2008. It takes less muscles to smile anyway.

Get a home of our own

This would be the biggest challenge in 2009, and also the most expensive. But I’m really looking forward to it, to have a home of our own. Finally growing up! 🙂

Get a proper driver’s license

I only have an Australian learner’s permit up till now. Gotta get my act together and sit for the practical exam next year. I was never really motivated to do it this year, as I have great access to public transportation, which is pretty good here. But when I move to whatever suburb I’d be living, I may not be so fortunate.

Have more “alone time” with the husband

Living with a housemate now doesn’t allow us much time together, just the two of us. It wouldn’t be long till we’re pressured to have children, so I think it’s vital we savour our time together as much as possible before we welcome little ones into our lives.

Be thankful for what I already have

Well, that just says it all, doesn’t it?

    Hey Tine! Thanks for sharing your New Year’s resolutions with us. I totally hear you on finishing something you’ve started. I get into this situation all the time too. Get all gung-ho and then it just dies away. Definitely not good.

    And yes, I NEED to get in shape. Big event next year, remember? =P

    oh myy… totally doing this… ^^

    i love the idea of ‘stop collecting makeup’ esp. when it comes to deal with MAC… cause i will never have enough of them… not to mention their collections which are released almost every month… total sucker when it comes to deal with it….

    and i’ll be sure to get your ‘own line of… something’…. i’m sure they are great!!! teehee ^^

    so uhm…. hepi nu year, Tine……. have a blessed year…
