Now this year, 2012, I didn’t really do the whole New Year’s Resolution thing (personally I consider New Year’s Day to be a bit like a wedding – a day where people make promises they can’t keep), but since we’re turning another page I think I’m going to try and keep to some…goals, as opposed to resolutions:
1. Treat my body better. Now I’m not a slut, so if it was something inappropriate that first came into your mind, think again. I want to treat it better in the sense of healthy eating, exercising more. That kind of rubbish that sucks balls (thanks, now you’ve made me inappropriate!). Only I’m not going for the whole “I’m gonna eat at least five portions of fruit or veg a day” because I know I won’t. Instead, I’m going to try cutting down to two choccies/treats a week and exercise for at least an hour at least twice a week. Every two months I’m able to do that properly, I’ll treat myself to two boxes of brownies, because then I’ve got a reason to stick to it.
2. Gain some experience. I want to be an engineer, yet if you mentioned horsepower, mid-engines or transmissions to me, my face would be blank. 2013, I’m going to start asking garages nearby if I can learn from them and work for them for free. I’ll also start reading more motor vehicle magazines so I don’t seem like a total dingbat when I ask around.
3. Organise my ass. What with my degree, my job, LUTheatre, streetdance, LUSH radio, writing, and my hopes to help out in a garage, I’m really gonna need to draw up a schedule to follow so that I don’t let myself down, or anyone else – I let you guys down since I still haven’t finished those two stories for y’all. So yeah, hopefully by being more organised I’ll find more time to write stories for you guys.
What are other people’s goals/resolutions? Let me know in the comments section. In the meantime, happy new year and bring on 2013!
