another week wasted at home. thank you, god of procrastination

new year bonfire, bye bye 2007, hello 2008

Shit! I haven't posted in a week. Been procrastinating a lot the past week, as I was clearing my residual annual leave. Took a couple of days off. But since it was a long week, I've decided to set a few goals for myself. They are:

Goal 1: Get replacement IC - Done
I've been wanting to do this for the longest time. My MyCard crapped out on me. It turns out that you can't do shit at banks when they can't read the fucking chip on the card. And when you want to open a new account at the bank, they need to be able to read the chip so that they can validate that you are who you are against the National Registration Department's (NRD) database. Ain't that a bitch? Well, went in, paid RM10, took a picture and came out within 30 minutes. The only problem is, both the NRD staff I spoke to with (sounds weird), told me two 2 different ETA on when I was able to pick up my new card. Fuck!

Goal 2: Visit the Eye on Malaysia - Procrastinated
I actually planned to go to the Eye yesterday (30th), because I thought I could squeeze it in the last minute, and the fact that noone could go with me any other day last week. So what happened was I was supposed to pick someone up at 6PM last nite (she wanted to catch the night sights on the Eye, go figure), but I woke up with a splitting headache. Had to cancel. Fuck. Can't go today either because of road closures. Even if the roads are not closed, I hate the fucking crowd.

Goal 3: Renew my passport - Procrastinated
I think my company is sending me to Singapore sometime in February, for like a week, for training. So I thought, since I'm off this week I might as well get my passport renewed (expired as off last year), so that I don't have to do it coming Feb. But mom said something to me that really clicked in my head. If I renewed it now, I would lose a month on the passport because I'm paying for annual renewal. Why am I paying for January if I'm only traveling in February? Sounded good to me, I guess I'll see them in February then.

Goal 4: Checkout gym membership fee at gym near my house - Done
Went to MyFitness (a stupid name for a gym) and checked out their package. A little pricey but seems reasonable, so I'm considering it. All I need now is the motivation to go to the gym. Told the consultant there I'll get back to him. Doubt I would.

Goal 5: Tell someone about something - Procrastinated
Can't. That person went on vacation the whole week. Should have done it earlier. So it has to be next year.

And since this is my last post for 2007, I want to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May 2008 bring you much health and wealth.
