2010-2010


It’s 1.1.2011 here in Shanghai! I know that most of you are still in 2010, so happy early new year! see you in 2011! 😀

My life in shanghai continued to be extremely relaxed. Every morning I wake up with no plans but a full day to do whatever I feel like. It could be just stay at home, watch TV, talk with my mom and snack all day long; it could be a dine out with my mom or friends; it could be a movie with tears and laugh; it could also be a full day of shopping. 😀 Boring? it might sound like, but it is not for me because I know this kind of 100% relaxed vacation will reach to an end soon.

Few words of recap for 2010 and expectations about 2011.

Important events in 2010:

Expected events in 2011

  • Graduation
  • Wedding in 7/31/2011, Shanghai
  • New job
  • Buy a big house and have a real married couple life

Goals

  • Be thankful about everything I have
  • Be careless about issues and annoying people
  • Learn to balance family, work and life
  • Communicate more and better with Star
  • Call more often to my parents

  • Visit new places

What are your expectations and goals for 2011?
