Summer Revolution

30 Jun

So I start a revolution from my bed
‘Cos you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime’s in bloom

Don’t Look Back in Anger- Oasis

Apparently, a caliber of Oasis starts a revolution from the bed in Summertime! O’ summertime, summertime, how awesome is that? I still think that mankind ought to formulate new resolutions (or revolution!) everytime the new season comes, not just in a lagging yearly basis. Corporate slaves might understand my points quite articulately, as Nasdaq or Bloomberg listed-companies always possess Key Performance Indicators (KPI) on a quarterly or even on a monthly basis to track and maintain their every progress. Now now, we want to lead our life professionally, right? We have of no reason why we shouldn’t operate our life like the Fortune top 500 companies do. Let’s turn into an individual living a professional life. Alas, Summer Revolution!

Winter by Hendrick Avercamp, early 17th century. Induce depression enough?

However, some discrepancies might occur between people living in the four seasons latitudes and those residing in the all-year-round sunshine areas. Four seasons latitudes are proudly endowed with 4 contrasting romance of living a life: the blooming spring, the lively summer, the melancholic autumn and the bleak winter. Each period may embody different resolution that is aligned with each unique personification. On the other hand, all-year-round sunshine may not be able to possess the equally diverging romance, as it basically would revolve on the same thing, i.e. ‘depressingly sunny’ or ‘lively sunny’ or ‘burning sunny’ -a tad too boring personification nonetheless, let alone the nature of the resolution.

After so much of overkill introduction, I would like to announce my summer revolution 2011:

1) Lose more weight. I am currently 50 kg, but still can feel the excess fat stumbled upon some spots on my body. If I can shed 2-3 kilos more, it will be cool.

NOT diary, but the summary of my research findings~

2) Write more manuscripts. I must admit that I am a whore for good stories and arts, and so much interested to produce THOSE of my own. Regardless of the quality that is non-existent at the moment, I feel like pushing the limit of my productivity. Moreover, a good friend of mine encouraged me to write more journal postings in order to win a Ricoh camera. I am pretty convinced, not only for the sake of the camera but also for the benefit of improving my rusty Enggrish. And here I am, trying so hard to press on far beyond my possible productivity level by writing a journal per day.

3) Read more books. I am a natural book eater, but due to hyper-attention deficit disorder, I never track the books that I have read, do not even try to remember the content of the books, and sometimes juggle to read more than 3 books at the same time. I shall be more serious about this reading business, and keep track on the books I have finished by the end of the summertime. I don’t want my time investment go waste, hence I must be aware of what I read and how I can get benefits from it :D.

I guess that’s pretty much a peanut summertime revolution. I start with the novice level and see the development before moving to a more serious level such as mastering Spanish or memorizing 1000 kanjis :P.

    WOW! 1000 Kanjis. I know you can do it. ^_^ But if you feel like you are burning the candle at both ends take a break and enjoy outing with friends. It’s always a good idea to recharge. ^_^

    For number three:
    I try to read one books at a time and write the reviews. I think that write something down can make you own that knowledge and retaining it longer than just reading it.
    So far, I only write it in twitter while I am reading or contemplating it. I want to do a post on that. But… I don’t have the energy. 😐
