New Year Resolutions – 2011

January 1st, 2011 2 comments

Another year has rolled over. I spent a large chunk of the new years party staring into space thinking about where I’ve been, and what I’m going to do.

2010 didn’t entirely go as planned. But, rather than dwelling on what I didn’t do, and what went wrong, I’m going to look at what I want to achieve. Here’s my list for 2011.

  • Develop and/or contribute to an Android app.
  • Develop and/or contribute to an application in Linux.
  • Go and see at least two of the following; Plays, live bands, classical concerts*.
  • Invest in some shares (finally). (18/08/2011)
  • Pay off my student loan. (20/01/2011)
  • Write at least 20,000 words of fiction.
  • Get back down to 80 kg.
  • Blog more.

Travel isn’t on there, because it’s time & money consuming. I can do that when I’m older. The time to build things is when I’m ‘young’.

* This is what I’m going to do for my birthday.

New Year Resolutions

January 3rd, 2009 2 comments

I have never really had new years resolutions before, but wishing to jump on the bandwagon, I present the following, not in any particular order.

In 2009, I resolve to;

  • Worry less about the consequences of my actions.
  • Alter my see-food diet, and allow myself not to clean my plate.
  • Not undo all the hard work I did at the gym last year.
  • Write more (again).
  • Accept that deep down inside I am a geek and probably always will be.
  • Learn how to dance something other than ceroc.
  • To not drink all the beer in the fridge.
  • Keep my coffee consumption below five cups a day.

And finally, one that I was given at the new years party;

  • To stop misusing (or was it abusing?) whipped cream – and start misusing chocolate spread instead.

Happy new year!
