New Year, New Me!!!!!

Tis the season for people to make ridiculous resolutions, resolutions which they can't/don't even bother trying to manage, so why should I be any different? Here's a few that I've thought up off the top of my head. Some are more serious than others.

1) Get a job - standard.

2) Do some voluntary work - good for the CV, gets me doing stuff, makes me seem a lot more charitable than I actually am.

3) Start sponsoring a Dogs Trust dog like I used to - this admittedly depends a lot on 1)

4) To start cracking down on "should of" and "would of" - Twitter users, I'm coming for you, and I'm correcting you, whoever you are. Be warned.

5) Walk up The Wrekin once a month - yeah, you know when I said some of these were less serious/realistic than others?

6) Subscribe to Private Eye - again, can't help feeling that this is in relation to 1)

7) Read more - I'm not going to set a target on how many books I read, because that will make it tedious, invite pressure and make the whole thing completely joyless, but I'm eager to devour books at a pace I haven't done for many years. University seemed to suck the fun out of reading, truth be told.

8) Watch every Al Pacino movie - can this be done in a year? And do I want to watch/re-watch the shit ones? Will I get paid for watching 'Jack and Jill'?

Oh god, I've just seen that he was in 'Gigli' as well. WHAT HAVE I DONE?

9) Lose more weight - LOL

10) Cut down on Coca Cola - because it's full of shit and I'm annoyed that it's taken me this long to realise that.

11) Check Facebook a lot less often than I do now - a waste of a life, quite frankly.

12) Cut down on reading the letters page in The Shropshire Star - it just makes me angry, and I can't be doing with it any more. Not every day, anyway.

13) Play more sports - back when I was about 4 stone lighter I played a lot of sport. Where did those salad days go?

Salad being the key word there.

14) Complete more XBox games - in other words, play XBox games that aren't Lego ones.

15) Listen to a lot more Radio Shropshire - especially in the mornings.

16) Get myself a bit more organised - and not leave everything to the last minute like I usually do.

I think 16 is enough. I'll probably stick to about 3 of them, but life is too short to sit around doing nothing like I usually do. Onwards and upwards, eh guys?

Happy New Year!

  1. Give up Coca-Cola? You're a braver person than I (however I'm more of a Pepsi girl tbf but I guess they contain more or less the same stuff).
    Watch every Al Pacino movie? Again, you're braver than I.
    16 New Year's Resolutions?! You're...yeah you get my drift.

    Anyway, good luck with them and I hope you manage to stick with at least one. I hope you don't mind me saying that I hope you don't stick to not reading the Shropshire Star letters page as much. Sure its contributors' views might piss you off but you get some good blogs out of them.
