February is here. I am still trying to make myself write 2015 on date sheets instead of 2014. Is time flying or something? But I am glad it's fast. Albeit, not furious.
This year, my new year's resolutions are of serious kind. So I started working for them from the very start of January. Now when it's already few days of February, I thought I should make a report of how things have been going on. Some good / some bad.
Calligraphy / Art
I absolutely love calligraphy. I've tried some more styles and they've been a good choice. The good thing is that it's something I had never ever tried before. I always thought brushes weren't for me. Glad to be wrong, haha!
Sometimes, they turn out great. Sometimes, I spot an epic fail. Fails are fun, believe me! I found an old brush from Areeba's art treasure and a pot of black ink to start with. The brush was kind of crap (I couldn't steal your good one, Areeba) I suppose this is how things should start. For free.
Work outs, yasss!!! Being a newbie in this fitness game, I started with 8 minute challenges. It's been few days with squats and lateral lunges. I wasn't sure how to start but once you find a way, there's no turning back.
My legs started hurting B A D after two days of exercises. It freaked me out (I honestly thought I was never going to walk again) but I found out it was just muscle sore. I strictly dislike the sound of it. But it's getting better as it's getting in routine.
I'm currently using P4P 8 minute challenge. I'll switch to some more when I get the hold of it. To be honest, it's a great feeling to finally pull off the most important resolution. I haven't been completely faithful in fitness game because of this sore muscles thing. It's saddening *insert the saddest emoji Apple hasn't even invented yet*
Photography is going well. Perhaps more than that. I made a hashtag #KarachiThroughMyLens on Instagram and created a link up #iGraphy so it's been a goal-well-achieved so far.
I was talking to my class fellows this morning and we ended up talking about photography. They told me they adored my Karachi photography series so much. It was amazing to hear it since I thought it was never getting any attention. So, woohooo!!!
Studies are going well. I didn't miss any single lecture (intentionally) so my concepts are pretty clear. I am afraid I don't like Economics enough to pay extra attention, which is something really important and I SHOULD start working on it, anyhow. Oh man!
I have been loving Math. It's so positive to realize. I don't know why I hated it at first place, back in high school. I watched a TED talk on Fibonacci numbers + Math and the presenter made the most stupid Math terms look fine and fun. It really depends on how you're learning things, they can either be fun or bum.
A Better Person
It's my main goal to be a better person. Without knowing how to do it. There's one thing I know for sure that a better person is kind and helpful and doesn't lie. I've been trying to incorporate it all in everything I do. It's the easiest and the hardest thing to do. At some points, you can't really let people take advantage of your kindness because they will try to do it. Whatever happens, I'd be trying even harder to take it all along.
Except of it all, there's a lot much going on. 2015 started with some BOOM-BASH-DOOM and I can't wait to be a part of a lot new things that are yet to come.
What's the most important to do for you, these days?
