I have been pretty busy lately. It's hard juggling all these balls, trying to keep them in the air: work, girlfriend, family, friends, colleagues, health, IM, gaming, blogging, etc. Some of these balls, I have to drop. So I dropped the rubber ones - those that will bounced back later - IM, blogger and gaming. I still make time for the rest so I think I am doing good so far.
Some quick updates:
1. I celebrated Anne's 28th birthday. I ordered a dozen of roses and sent it to her office. She did not expect this at all - coz I used to surprise her once a while by sending flowers, even though there are no special occassions so she told me one time, point blank, that it is a waste of money and asked me not to send her any. She did not expect that I'd send them to her on her bday (DUH!)... anyway, she had a good time. Lots of colleagues dropping by her office in envy.
I took her for a nice dinner in our favourite sushi restaurant. We had a good time. It may not be as good as last year's but I believe she enjoyed herself tremendously. I know I did :)
2. June marked my 10th year anniversary with the company. June also marked my promotion. So it is a good start. I hope I will excel in my new job.
A lot of people said that Anne brings me luck in my life. I agree but sometimes when I ascent 5,000 ft up in the air to look at the situation, I think it has nothing to do with luck but it has to do with something as simple as being positive. She definitely bring me joy. And whne one is joyful and happy, one's disposition improves. When you have a positive vibe, you give out a positive aura. And a positive aura causes things around you to move and evolve positively. Thus, all things come easy: work, relationship with people, etc.
My point is.. being positive is very important. It is one of the hardest things to maintain if life have been hard at you, but if you see the long term benefit, then it is beneficial to work towards having a positive mindset.
3. I am still hunting for a house. It is not an easy... I am tired...
In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of t...
