High Hopes For The New Year 2019


The clock is ticking and the pendulum is swinging, are you guys ready for a brand new year? Well...ready or not, it will still come and go if you are not doing anything at all to take it by the horns. If you think (and feel) that year 2018 has been a pretty lousy year for you, I am sure you are not alone. That's why you need to make this brand new 2019 count for you. You had to have high hopes for yourself; More importantly you have to expect from yourself. :)


Happy New Year 2019 folks!
Greetings from my Jordan boy and Jasmine girl.

Personally I feel that my 2018 had been pretty terrible in terms of achievements as I honestly could have done more if not for my own procrastination and laziness. Moreover, I had actually allowed myself to indulge way too much for my own liking. My mobile game addiction was so bad that it had robbed me of my waking hours and sleeping hours. Damn! Instead of doing something productive, I ended up wasting my precious time.


Yupe! I will expect more from myself as well.

I have high hopes for myself this year. I am so going to try to be more productive and get rid of anything that is going to drag me down such as gaming and ouh yeah...I have another new bad habit that I had acquired towards the end the year-BINGE WATCHING on Netflix. Though it is not as "debilitating" as playing mobile games, I still think that I must not succumb to my temptations too much. Otherwise I will not be able to do a lot of things that I wanted such as blogging.

The de facto song for me to have High Hopes for year 2019!

So I need to keep reminding myself not to be distracted by the pleasures which will erode me of my senses and of my most precious possession-time. By not playing too much mobile games or being consumed by those addictive TV series and movies on Netflix, I am sure I can focus more on doing the important things in life.  Hence I need to have something to pump me up like a song. And the song which is going to fire me up, keep me on my toes and fire all cylinders will be...HIGH HOPES!


High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said
Fulfill the prophecy
Be something greater
Go make a legacy
Manifest destiny
Back in the days
We wanted everything, wanted everything
Mama said
Burn your biographies
Rewrite your history
Light up your wildest dreams
Museum victories, everyday
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said don't give up, it's a little complicated
All tied up, no more love and I'd hate to see you waiting

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said
It's uphill for oddities
The stranger crusaders
Ain't ever wannabes
The weird and the novelties
Don't ever change
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise and never come down
Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise and never come down

Mama said don't give up, it's a little complicated
All tied up, no more love and I'd hate to see you waiting
They say it's all been done but they haven't seen the best of me
So I got one more run and it's gonna be a sight to see
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

What about you? Do you want a clean slate for the year 2019? You need not only your New Year's Resolutions but also some motivators right at your rear end to keep you going. You need something breathing down your neck, to remind you not to complacent nor procrastinate. You need your song. High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco sounds just right no? It makes me feel that I can do the impossible...It keeps me "high". :D
