Impossible List

Last update: 30 April, 2017


I have a really bad habit of procrastinating (like many do) but I have lots and lots of interests that I want to pursue before I’m sleeping in my wooden, colourful-flower-ornated coffin. Thus, I construct this list of my goals to (1) build a clearer picture of my objectives; and (2) pressure myself by showing all my aspirations, letting others criticise me at any time.

Current Focuses:

Right now, my main focus is on my new podcast, TT group.

while I’m not-so-patiently waiting for an English Education degree offer. (Fingers crossed)

The rest of my current priorities are declared at this page: What I’m Doing Now
