It’s half way through month number 3 of the new year is ending, and well, there were some promises we made to ourselves that we haven’t really kept. Now, I understand we’re only human. But we all know the rule. Ager time nikal gaya tau bus ubh ugley saal. And we’re almost close to that phase again.
Here’s some of the New Years’ Resolutions I, and a lot of people I know, made and, lol, haven’t really gotten around fulfilling them.
1. Kal se pakka diet
More salad. Less carbs. More greens. More vegetables. Wait, potatoes are vegetables, na? Then, technically, french fries are vegetables, too. So healthy.
2. Kal se pakka gym
Ummm..but waking up in the morning…okay post-work…I swear I’ll take time out during work..
3. Kal se cigarette ko haath nai lugana
Uccha nai, I’ll cut down to half..or twice a day..okay 1, na.
4. Is daffa tau USA, baahir apply kerna hi hai Masters ke liye
2 saal ho gaye Bachelors ko, now tau I have to go for my Masters
5. Shit, date nikal gayi, uccha Canada, pakka
Okay HEC just put out a list of the top universities in Pakistan. Maybe I’ll just go here somewhere.
6. I’ll learn at least one new skill, this year
Driving, cooking, knitting, riding a bike, balancing on my head…
7. Or maybe an instrument
Okay, I shall go the Chitta Chola way and just learn how to bajao the table
8. I’ll spend less time on the internet
Okay. Promise. But this one doesn’t really work for people working at MangoBaaz. But we’re not complaining. ♥
9. I’ll watch lesser movies
And do something productive with my time (point 6 for reference)
10. I’ll go out and get fresh air more
Model Town Park scene on. Roz ki shaam ki walk pakki. Haftay mein ek daffa? Twice a month?
11. I’ll try being a better person
I’ll judge people less. Be less sarrial. Or I can try…
12. I’ll save up money
- have no money,
- no new clothes,
- can’t go out,
- look homeless
13. I’ll finally ask her/him out
Or tell her/him I like her/him…or say hello, at least
Don’t lost hope, my boys and girls. There’s still 9 months left for us to not working on our New Year’s Resolutions! Let’s not waste them by doing anything productive
