It’s that time of the year again. Early 2014… Time to make resolutions and jump into them with full gusto, and keep going till they threaten to fizzle out. I can’t remember the last time I managed to be satisfied with the progress I’d made. This year I’m going to change that!
Well, a girl can hope, can’t she? 😉
(1) Read 52 books, and watch 104 good movies.
One book per week. When I was younger, even till 4-5 years back, I was a voracious reader. I don’t know how I let that habit fade. This past year, I didn’t even complete one.
I’m not big on watching very frivolous movies. This year, I want to watch 2 nice, not-a-waste-of-time movies every week.
(2) Get rid of 13 + 4kgs.
Why 13 + 4, you say? 13 is what I gained this past one year in Milan (unbelievable, right? The last 2.5 months saw me packing on eight. EIGHT!! Damn, thesis :/), 4 is the last few kgs I had left after years of hard work. Oh, well.
(3) Learn some new things, sports, hobbies.
A blog (
I’ll link to it when I find it again 😛 Here it is!) I had read some time back introduced me to one of the coolest challenges I have seen- Do something new every week. There are a lot of variants of that- every day, every week, every month… I think I’m going to maintain the original format- something new every week. It can be anything- something as little as trying a new flavour of achaar, to something big like, I don’t know, eating something new for breakfast (I like my coffee, poached eggs and toast every morning. Changing that routine is BIG for me!!).
(4) Find a way to earn money.
By that I mean a job. Sigh. (Or win the lottery. Or maybe I can rob a bank… Hmmm)
(5) STOP PROCRASTINATING!!
THIS is such a problem for me! I’m going to overcome this one! I’m going to set weekly (?) goals and accomplish them. I will. Really!
So that’s just 5 of my resolutions. Of course there are more, which I’m going to detail and write about in a side blog I plan to start to keep myself on track. What are your resolutions for 2014? Did you fulfill your 2013 ones?
Signing off with a great big fat hug and a huge shout of HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
