People have New Year’s resolutions. These are oaths to oneself and self-imposed regimens to attain excellence of self. These are encouraging as they serve as goals that should be attained within a 365-day period, thus making each year well-spent.
But let’s face it: it’s difficult to adhere to New Year’s resolutions. Midway through the a year’s first quarter, we start to forget these oaths and regimens and revert to our usual lifestyles. Tragic! Hopefully, I will be able to stick to my New Year’s resolutions, which I started earlier by initiating them this month. In case I do fail, hopefully, I will be able to accomplish these two projects/activities for 2013:
- Enroll in drama school. I really want to start a would-be life-long career in musical performance and I believe it starts with education. I need to find a school that would allow me to finish its program at the same time with my Master’s degree in Development Communication. It will be a busy 2013, yet again. Bring it on!
- Record a Extended Play (EP) record, that is, if I cannot produce a Long Play (LP) record. I believe making an EP in my area right now costs PhP15,000.00 to PhP20,000.00. Expensive! Of course, I could do it on my own and make a mixtape instead. But if I were to use it as a demo record, an EP would be the way to go.
With these statements, I also promise to myself: 2013 will be different.
