Ramblings and Resolutions

Thanks to those of you who sent the lovely wishes and comments about my 2006 post. You made me smile. And as for those concerned? I have created a private blog, an offset to this one. To access it, you will need a username and a password. I'm the only person handing out those right now, so if you are wanting to read it or are plain nosey (I like you!) please email me.

If you're someone I know and love, I may decide not to give you access right now. Please don't be offended, it's just that I'm not really comfortable sharing this stuff right now. It's nothing to be worried about, just some things I needed to get off my chest. Honestly. Don't worry. I'll probably share it some day anyway.

Now that that's done, and there are thousands of people flocking to their emails to read "le private blog", I'll just continue babbling and try to distract you.

To be honest, I couldn't remember any real resolutions I made last year. Apart from the whole "Will turn into a Barbie and become skinny and gorgeous and have men flocking around me" resolution, which most girls have. This year, I want to try again - really try. In no particular order, here we go.

  • Absolutely STICK with the being healthy thing. I'm already the proud owner of a gym membership, so that hard part is done. If doing it on my own doesn't work, I'm considering joining Weight Watchers. Although mum has done the points programme before, so we know how it all works. It's just being fussier. I need to be fussier. I will be fussier. And New Zealand will start me off. I'll be much too busy jumping off cliffs and sailing (!) to be worrying about food.

  • Stop picking my skin. I do it sometimes and don't even realise I'm doing it - and have icky arms. Must cut that out. Barbie doesn't have spotty arms, that's for sure.

  • Moisturise more. I have a habit of being lazy, and that is silly. I have fifteen thousand different tubs of moisturiser sitting in my cupboard, that I don't use as much as I should. I'm sure in a month or so, my crusty elbows will thank me for it.

  • Travel at LEAST once in 2007. New Zealand doesn't count, because it was technically organised this year, but I need to go somewhere next year. If I don't get back to Europe this year to work, I must at least travel somewhere local. My 13 year old cousin Sam invited me to Dreamworld in June/July, so we can be ride whores. That sounds like a plan to me.

  • Do more things. I can't be specific yet because I don't even know what I'm talking about, but I want to experience more. If an opportunity arises, I want to take it. That doesn't mean turning myself into somebody that I'm not - just means I should take more chances. We'll see what happens in that regard.

I think that's about it. I figure if I have a list of more than one thing, I'll at least succeed in ONE thing out of them, right? I mean, positive thinking. I WILL SUCCEED AT THEM ALL.

My problem is not getting disheartened. I always lose motivation in sticking to things because they don't happen as fast as I want them too. It's interesting though - I got through NaBloPoMo and this Shoe Posting blog posting perfectly fine, without even the slightest hiccup, so surely sticking to my resolutions this year won't be too tricky? Ha! We'll see.

Here's to lots of blogging parties in '07'. I'll be spending my New Years Eve hours before ya'll (hee) - I'm trying to convince Jason, Mum and Dad to spend the night playing board games whilst drunk. I'll let you know how that goes.

31 days. 31 pairs of shoes. Absolutely crazy. Hey Lara, we made it! Too bad I'm going overseas next month, I could have done a 31 days of (insert something here).
