Best Foot Forward

I love my body. Not that I have a to-die-for one but for obvious reason that this is the only body that I have. With my slim built, I stand five feet and six inches (which is usually the envy of my friends). There is no part of my body that I hate but there are also parts that would make me happier if they would have been beautiful. Nevertheless, I am still thankful that I have a complete set of hands, feet, organs and everything function as it should be... or so I think. And if I need to pick one part of my body that I'd be most proud to display, I guess I'd pick my feet. Not that I have an ugly face but I'd be more than willing to show the world my feet than my face. I love to look at it when I'm wearing a mary-jane type shoes or flat pumps. I love it more when it is neatly pedicured and colored with red blood nail polish. I even sometimes wish to model shoes not only to expose what I'm most proud of but also to get freebies and sponsorship (wishful thinking).

And since I fancy beautiful feet, it turns me off big time to see dirty feet in addition to dirty and long toenails. You may be the most elegantly-dressed person around but when I look down and see your disgusting feet, don't expect that I'll ever look at you again... kidding! Of course I do not judge a person aesthetically (much more by his/her feet) but I truly admire those who keep theirs clean and pleasant to look at.

I believe it is important for boys and girls alike or man and woman alike to have clean feet because for me, it reveals much of their personality. Someone once told me that one of the ways to determine if a person has good hygiene is to check out his/her feet. And I couldn't agree more!

I can go out and still be confident without make-up but I can't definitely feel the same when I have dirty feet and unpedicured nails. Nuff said!

Though I started the year with a lazy and windy day, I know I will not go through the same mood throughout the year. I believe there will be sunny days as well as rainy days for me too!

And since I do not want to let the first day of the year ends without posting something, I gathered my thoughts and assess what I want to achieve this year. I want to call this list my "goals for 2010" instead of the more commonly used New Year’s resolution.

  1. SAVE!!
    I am planning to start a big project by the middle of the year and naturally, I need money to support the said project. I will minimize lavish meals, avoid buying things that are not really important and just be wise when buying things.

  2. Do household chores.
    I am absolutely not a spoiled brat but when it comes to household chores, I rarely do any because I have such a loving mother who wants to do everything for us. I will try to learn how to cook (not just fry), do the laundry (though laundry detergent damages my hands), iron clothes and clean the house more often.

  3. Do the mani/pedi on my own.
    I admit I'm kinda vain when it comes to nails especially toenails. I just want it clean and nice to look at. But the sad thing is, I am not good (and kinda lazy) in doing manicure and pedicure on my own. I have to pay others to do it for me. I could save a lot of money (and keep my nails healthy) if I do it by myself.

  4. Learn to do crafts.
    I am amazed by people who are good at various crafts such as knitting, crocheting, homemade accessories and others. These things will give me diversion from the daily grind in front of the computer. And besides, I can use the products as gift to others.

  5. Work performance.
    I admit I found myself slacking from work lately. Not only I do not want a low evaluation but I also want to give my best considering that my current client is the best so far since I started working in my present company (also my first job after college).

  6. Exercise.
    Exercise is needed not just by obese people but by people who used to have physically active lifestyle before introduced to the word "work" (that's me!). Apart from that, I find sweating a great way to relieve my stress and it also sets my mood right. Being such a moody person in addition to having a stressful job, I really need to exercise for the sake of my sanity.
These are the only goals I can think of so far. I will update this post if something pops in my mind.

Next year, 010111, I will go back to this post to determine the result of these goals.
