This should be the first post and 'Happy 2014' post for the year, however, there are too many things that happened in just one month and I have yet so many things to update. Here, I would like to review on my 2013. To make my life easier, I have always keep a list at my 'A Journal of Impossible Things' to keep track of my progress. So here is the list:
What I have done in 2013?

In conclusion, I wouldn't say that I fulfill all my goals in 2013, especially the language part. However, I was rather pleased with myself with things I've done and a few surprises such as diving and first aid course. And of course, I have no regrets whatsoever over my progress in science.
2013 has been a great and fulfilling year and I would like to have more years to come at least as good as this.
