Things I Will Definitely Achieve in 2009

Everyone knows that it's the time of year for resolutions and goal setting. Across the globe people are compiling various lists of things they want to accomplish in the year ahead. Most of these lists will probably be forgotten within a few weeks, days, or even hours.

But don't be discouraged! To make sure that your goals number among the minority of New Year's Resolutions that are actually achieved then...

...make them unbeliveably fun!

My goals for 2009:
  1. Host a cupcake food fight
  2. Learn the whole of the Thriller dance
  3. Visit five new countries
And if you still need a bit of social pressure to accomplish them, why not share your goals in the comments?

My boyfriend asked me (when I read the 2009 goals aloud to him) if those would be concurrent or simultaneous? I said I didn't know, but all sounded more fun than my list (which I am still composing) of "streamline wardrobe" "abstain from losing temper when boss says moronic things" and "get really good bed". Obvious, I need to add some more fun and frivolity to my list. A sub-list may be called for. :D

Damn! Concurrent and simultaneous mean same thing.

#11 on list: Do not use redundant words!

I've totally given up on traditional ones such as 'save more money' or 'eat healthier' and decided on one that desperately needed sorting out - my organization.

To encourage me to get into the changing mood I bought myself a new notebook (despite the fact I have trillions upon trillions of perfectly empty ones) which I can proudly say has already been put to use!

Apart from the fun part of buying new things I don't need, I've also decided to try out doing different challenges each month, just for the pure fact to prove what you can do if you set your mind to it. For example, say, January might be - go to the gym at least twice a week, and then August might be - go to 5 different beaches.

It's all well saying this, depends whether it's still intact come March!! :)

Happy New Year everyone!

Obviously I'm a bit late with these, but I've just discovered this fabulous site. However I can still remember my resolutions which must be a good sign:

1) stop taking an interest in ex-husbands life

2) more recycling (already use supermarket re-useable bags, but have pretty much stopped taking bags in shops generally - it gets shop assistants very confused creating great comedy value on top of saving the environment!)

3) finish paying off last of debts (done- hoorah!) and start saving for a rainy day

4) start a home inventory

Hope you're all still keeping up with yours!
