Around the blogosphere now I see a lot of people doing this, revisiting if they have accomplished their goals this year and do a list of goals for the next year. Actually I am really interested into reading this kind of stuffs and its nice to see how people actually fare with the current year. Anyway now I would want to share with you guys the year 2008 for me and how it has made impact on my life. Unlike most post, I wouldn’t want to talk much about the internet business and how I do some moolah online and so. Instead I like to share things that are far from that.
Ok, January up to March is a pretty fare and challenging month to me. Actually that is the third trimester for school and its just harder than what I thought. Initially we had subjects like Computer Systems Org which talks Assembly language which sucks. I also have like Object-Oriented Programming during that time. As I’ve said its hard, I barely passed those two subjects and kinda hang on as one of the students in our group that hasn’t fail any subjects since first year (or since kindergarten). Then here comes summer and oh boy its really hot during summer. This is where I struggled as the eldest brother in my family. Why? It’s because I care so much about things. I tend to have short patience with things and occassionally its hard to control myself with what I say. It’s been a struggle for me to be a nice image for my younger brothers w/o hurting them w/my sharp retorts. Oh well…
Then before the classes started I built this blog. Actually a day after purchasing the domain, getting a host and putting my first post, I was confined in a hospital for 4 days for being stressed too much, low blood, and dengue fever. Hospital sucks and everyone agrees I know. June then is the start of the class again and Im in the third year college. As always school is nice. I felt I was bright enough to get high grades and split time well with affiliate marketing, blogging and studies. Studying has always been fun and I know most students don’t say but they definitely have something on them that agrees with it. Funny jokes during lunch times, mocking people’s miseries and so on so fort. Seeing your crush, seeing ugly people, professors and poor security guards. Then of course the trimester ended before Christmas.
During November and December, I also kinda have the worst months on my online business in that year. What a time to come! Basically I felt I need to grow my business and we started out increasing our budgets with campaigns, started out hiring this one and that and pay hosting, domain and etc. That pretty mcuh hurted us financially (particularly me) as we lost over a thousand dollars. How? Its a long story and maybe I could talk about it for quite some time. I felt sad and thought Christmas would be sad for me because I’m poor (literally poor). But well god is great and I was still able to celebrate Christmas nicely. I was still able to buy gifts for my love ones and gifts for myself. Honestly as I write my ending thoughts about this last paragraph, I still couldn’t think of what I learned this year (seriously). Maybe its deep on me that I have to dig(g) it or have someone dig it for me so I could remember it. But well so far, I believe thats it. Im still young and these experiences make people grow.
