Right, we’re a few days into the new year already, and no doubt people have scuppered up their new year’s resolutions already.
Which is why I didn’t make any this year.
You see, I read a post from Jem where she talked about her “Goals for 2008″. They sound a lot better because they’re achievable, and not completely out of reach, and sound more positive rather than “don’t do this, don’t do that”. Here are my 3.
1. Learn To Drive
This is the biggie. I’m still at the ripe old age of 23 unable to drive a car. I’ve managed to get hold of a provisional licence this year, but – despite ringing round – I’m yet to get on the road.
I’m beginning to suffer as such, it takes me generally over an hour to get to Llandudno, no more than 15 minutes away by car. Whether I buy a car after learning will be interesting, but I’d like the option there.
2. Beat my brother to North America
I’m stupidly competitive, I find it makes things more fun, so imagine my horror when an e-mail arrived from Morocco from my brother saying “I’ve beaten you to Africa”. I was livid! Either way, since I’ve obtained the travelling bug, and the only continent Rick has yet to be to is North America, I’m going, I’m going to go there before June (when he goes), and I will win.
3. Lose My Holiday Weight
Yes, one toll of the previous holiday (specifically the food in Italy and France, the Beer in Germany and Febo’s in Holland) was that I’m still a fat bastard from the holiday. Sure, I got a lot of exercise , but I’m still physically suffering from the trip, a few of my clothes still don’t fit, and Christmas has made my behind even bigger. I’ve started exercising a little bit more through my monday night football group, and I cannot wait to get back to it this monday. I just need to do more though.
What are your goals for 2008?
