'Appy GNU Year!

'Appy GNU Year!

T'is the time of the year for resolutions. Normally, I have a short list. But this year, I'm making the list even shorter than ever. I'm only going to try to change one thing. Hopefully, I'll be successful at changing just the one thing. To remind myself about it everyday, I've changed my computer wallpaper to reflect it.

This is also the time of year for hopes and wishes. I do really hope that 2008 is a good year for me. 2007 truly sucked! Nothing seemed to turn out right.

I've also just noticed something interesting. I always seem to graduate when things aren't going so well. When I finished my bachelor's degree, the job market was down in Malaysia. I attended a whole bunch of job interviews and never got a single offer. Now that I'm towards the tail end of my PhD, I find that the world economy isn't doing so well. Maybe I'm just not destined to land a good job. I guess I'll just need to make do with whatever cards I'm dealt.

So, 'appy gnu year!

Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well :)
