New Year's Resolutions?
" I end up breaking them, it's hard." stated Britney Spears in a Glamour magazine.

Yep, she is right. It's hard not to break these resolutions you set forth for new year.
(by the way, amazing 'come back', Britney !)

Looking back last year, I didn't note down any resolutions but i think i did pretty good with my life. I lost some weight and now i am feeling fitter (exercises help a great deal).
For my 29th birthday, I got to spend some fun time at Europa Park ( there was hardly anyone there so we kind of had the park for ourselves). My husband and I flew off to visit his family in Mayotte (I never heard of this place until i met him). Although we can't afford to go there often, we had a memorable time with the family. Later in October, I got to visit my family in Thailand and they were happy to see me. Last but not least, we had this last- minute plan flying off to Santorini, Greece!
So i think we did pretty well.

However, this year i decided to make a list of my New Year's Resolutions just for fun and at the end of the year i get to check off what I can actually achieve.
Here goes:
