New Year's Resolutions
"Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it's twice as onerous a duty."
Every year I make little resolutions to myself in January and have already forgotten them by February.
So... this year I have decided to blog my resolutions for 2011 as, although they may be '
twice as onerous
' to stick to, if others know about them I may be more compelled to keep to them.
So here goes:
To go on the Wii Fit at least 4 times a week - even if only to do the body test so as to keep track of my progress
To be in shape to run the RAK half marathon next February - and ideally run the Dubai Marathon next January and use the RAK as my warm down!
To have my own place to live
To learn to drive
To have hold a dinner party where i cook a three course meal entirely on my own
To blog a minimum of 12 times
To be able to hold a basic conversation in Arabic - and blog the conversation afterwards - preferably in Arabic text!
To hand write at least 10 letters - and get around to posting them
To clear my debts and start saving
To end the year, at least, as happy and as healthy as I have started it
Please feel free to prompt/encourage/help me throughout 2011 and the 'duties' that lie ahead and make sure you check back at the start of 2012 to see if I managed to prove Mr. Selden wrong.
Until next time
