Well, the year of the dragon, 2012, is out and done and now we welcome in 2013--the year of the Snake.

2012 was full of surprises.  Half the year consisted of working as a Japanese Business Analyst, the other year spent studying consecutive interpreting from English to Chinese. 

I was looking at my old resolutions for 2012 and, surprisingly, I fulfilled almost every single goal I set for myself.  I was able to pass HSK 6, get into Shanghai International Studies University and was awarded the full-ride scholarship I labored over so hard to prepare.  It was a tough year full of disappointments and difficult decisions, but also filled with lovely memories and new people.

After much debate, I decided to stay at this university and become a full fledged interpreter.  Mostly because while the school sucks, it does have a famous reputation for being a good university.  It is sponsored by the UN and EU and famous in the small world of Chinese-English interpreters.  I can get a masters degree for free, and in the meantime accomplish other goals within the free time the school provides me.

This year I've set some pretty goddamn hard goals for myself, but I have confidence that I will fulfill each and every one of them.

New Years Resolutions of 2013

1.  First and foremost, I will pass the conference interpreting test held at the end of the semester.  This is, by far, the hardest resolution--but I'll do it, goddammit.  I'll study so hard my brain will bleed out of my ears.

2.  Find an awesome internship.  My goal is to find an internship at a Japanese company and bust out my mad Japanese/Chinese talents while learning other talents of the trade.

3.  Pass JLPT 1 again.  My first score was pathetic and my Japanese skill has dropped significantly.  Time to bust out the books and review some nihongo.

4.  Lose AT LEAST 7 kilograms (12 pounds).  I have gained about 7 kilograms since coming to this school and I'm going to get rid of it.  How?  Well---

5.  Go to the gym AT LEAST four times a week.  Everyday will be my goal, but I have to be a bit realistic.

6.  Start a webpage for myself and fire up my freelance translation.

7.  Learn how to use dreamweaver again.  Go to a class in Shanghai.  Study on the internet.  Anything.  I need to learn another skill in addition to languages, and I love making webpages and designing with Photoshop.

8.  Meet more people.  I want to go to more networking events and meet some more amazing people.  While meeting people like Kei was really a dumb struck of luck, I want to try my hardest to meet more.

9.  Go on a trip to see some beautiful mountain/ocean/lake/anything...  I've been going to the same places over and over again in 2012, and I need to visit a new place.

10.  Keep writing in this blog and for my other stories.


Well.  That's done.  Now I gotta get workin on making sure all of these resolutions come true.

Until next time.
