The new year anthem

Well Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2012 is being kind to you all. It's been playing nice so far for me.

Let me be the first to say I am the proud owner of a brand spanking new Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone and I am absolutely loving it! To jump from my ol' Samsung Galaxy S to this phone is a big step up!

Well we're into week #2 of 2012 and things have....reverted to what they were. My trip to Bali was so relaxing that every time I sit here working, I just keep looking back to my Bali trip and remembering what relaxation really should feel like. I've disciplined myself to take frequent breaks in between work and those 5 minutes of just pretending I'm still in Bali feel great. I used to work for 35 minutes then break for 5 - 10 minutes, but now I push 45 minutes then break for around 5. I realized that when I'm in the zone, it's hard for me to stay in the zone while I take a break. So knowing I'm relaxing for 5 minutes just gives me a quick recharge because I'll still be in the zone, but my mind would have had a quick breather.

As one of my new year's resolutions, I've aimed to live a more balanced life and things have been hard. I've realized that Hong Kong really is a place where you feel like things need to be rushed. I mean while I'm here, it's hard for me to have a I feel like taking the day off... just because feeling because there is always something to be done on my agenda. On a brighter note, at least I've been exercising more and eating better, though there have been days when my craving for junk food has been uncontrollable!

You know what's really odd, now that I've been practicing my drums daily, I'm able to blink my right or left eye separately. Ahaha for the last few months where I rarely practiced my drums, I couldn't do that with my eyes! Weird eh?

Well, I've hit my 45 minutes mark and it's time to take a break and I guess my anthem continues in hopes of being a more balanced person in 2012. See you in 10 days and until then, stay warm and stay happy because if 2012 is the end of the world, well, at least you didn't die while shivering with a frown :)
