One of my favorite things in the world is checking things off lists. Productivity lists are great to check things off of, but I am talking about big lists. Lists that are full of things that are life-long dreams, huge goals and even a few silly things that are for fun along the way. Continue reading
There are a lot of New Year’s resolutions that people make. One I hear occasionally is to learn a new language. In my mail was an offer to take a class to learn Swahili. I am not sure I’ve ever heard it spoken, but just seeing the offer for a semester long class intrigued me. Not enough to actually to it, as learning Swahili is not high on my list of things to do in life… but interested none the less.
Instead, I ask you, dear Six of Clubs readers, to learn the language and tell me about it. Are you game?
‘Tis the season to swear to the powers that be that you will do more of some stuff and less of others. I guess it is my turn.
Of course I am going to get those last 15 or so pounds as noted in last year’s resolution. OK, so there is a small detail about skipping over the first “few” pounds… hopefully I can take off some of those as well.
Other than the weight thing, I did pretty well at my resolutions for 2010. I managed to make a pretty normal life for myself. I have local friends and have a social life (sometimes that social life is so active I am a little too busy… but it is well worth it.) I am volunteering in the community. Every week I volunteer for the CNE and do pretty regular other volunteering. I made it to New York to see the Tim Burton exhibit, I didn’t do as many races as I thought, but I did do the big one I wanted to do, and I do more creative things – but still want more. Now, to convince hubby to get out and have some fun…
For this year…
- I’ll lose weight (this is becoming a resolution staple… maybe this is the year)
- I will find a job that I love
- I will clean the closets and clear the one room we have left for the house to be totally finished.
- I will keep up on getting rid of things we don’t use/need/want, instead of letting them pile up.
- I will get air conditioning in the house!
- I will take a vacation
- I will take the Bean to the beach
- Just for funsies, I will eat more fun fruit and write about it.
What are your resolutions for 2011?
