New Year's Resolutions 2017

Post by RichardUK » Sat Dec 31, 2016 12:52 am

What are your new year's resolutions?

Last year mine were
[*]Get fit again - Fail
[*]Get out and about more - Fail
[*]Eat healthy - Fail
[*]Decide what to do with my relationship - Fail
[*]Learn as much as I can about issues that are happening across our country - Fail
[*]Take a German exam so I have a official qualification - Fail
[*]Find out if there are tour quide qualifications - Success, I did one
[*]Don't waste money for the sake of it on things I don't really want - Fail
[*]Be more open minded - Not Sure
[*]Sort out my religious issues that may mean I must do gods work - Fail

So I did 1 out of 10 :(

Found last year's thread if anyone else wants to look back and celebrate/commiserate their successes/failures (and condemn everyone making the terrible overused joke)
Rik 2k15 wrote:- Try not to fail January exams
Bossed em
- Be more social at uni seeing as I still don't really know that many people outside of my halls/seminar groups
I am now a certified social butterfly
- Be more active, maybe even make some #gainz but I'd settle just for being slightly fitter
No gainz but biking to uni is keeping me active so at least there's that
- When summer rolls up, knuckle down and write some stuff
Ha that didn't happen
- Keep writing for the uni newspaper, maybe even apply for an editor position if there are any going at the end of the year
Applied and might have got the position if Facebook hadn't hidden the message from the editor in a spam folder RIP
- Relationship maybe?!?! lol nah that's not happening
lol nah didn't happen
- Try to enjoy life
Kind of? First half of the year was a bit eton mess but with a couple of exceptions it's been p great since about October
Not a bad effort I guess

Failed both. In fairness I couldn't have foreseen my forced move to Reading nor that I'd ultimately landed two placements that weren't particularly good fits for me. Now I've made a bit of a shift towards a career (retail / field management) and a bit more settled down in England (still hate it but whatever) I might be able to see some personal life things into success but it's hard to know. In fairness I did start losing weight and am (was... before Christmas) at my lowest weight for many years so I'm just going to continue that and see where we end up.

I haven't made resolutions for New Year in a few years now, I just resolve to do stuff when I realise that it needs doing. That way I'm never too ambitious and I still get stuff done.

Well out of the 3 I put down last year I achieved one, I did lose a bit of weight that I've probably put back on over Christmas so it'll be back to an exercise regime for me tomorrow!

Still need to work on the job front, I kind of find it a scary prospect when I still have no idea what I'd actually like to do with my life. Current jobs better than no job though I guess.

So last year in all its eton mess I at least carried on with comedy (did two whole fringe shows to varying degrees of success), got a bit fitter, and somehow ended up with a boyfriend, so I guess for 2017 I just want more of the same. But nah I said I'd eat healthier and today's diet consisted of mostly ginger nuts. I've started well.

Ginger is a medicinal spice so you're fine.

Not strictly new years resolutions, more current personal projects that are in my mind going into the new year, but I guess that's as close as I'll get:

- Continue writing novel that I finally started before Christmas
- Major update this place for modernness, and generally get back to doing SONM things
- Continue to fight my games backlog
- Organise more of my trip to China in March (flights booked two days ago, so it's actually happening now)
- Personal coding projects - have been messing with writing browser addons recently, and I'm currently rebuilding my old laptop so I will finally be running ubuntu at home
- Do some more art/T-shirt designs
- Expand my website, esp. with up to date CV
- Sort out my email accounts
- Keep saving money and organise finances some more following bank switch and phone contract last year

Looking further on in the year, in the summer I'd like to go on holiday somewhere with my girlfriend, and towards the end of 2017 I have a good friend's wedding that I'm a groomsman at so we'll have the stag before that.

Get better at drawing, get better at coding, get a fancy tattoo, successfully move out on my own to a new area, make friends and join stuff in said new area, go on holiday somewhere nice with my boyfriend, stick at eating vegan, get a job that isn't godforsaken retail, stay generally positive.

Already on my way to some of them and am preparing to move sometime in the next few months, so I'm pretty excited! The ones that involve practising skills will be the hardest because I'm lazy as gooseberry fool.
