Ramblings & Resolutions.

Here we are, already beginning 2008: in London time, anyway. We spent our evening nice and cozy indoors; Jason cooked me a (spicy!) red curry dish, he watched some Heroes, I watched some Sex & the City, and we opened a shared bank account for the first time. It was a shame we didn't get to spend Christmas together last year, but I'm thankful I was able to bring in the new year with him. I can't remember being happier.

Last year, I created a few resolutions; you can read about them for yourself here. Here are my new ones for 2008; have you got any goals of your own for the coming year?


  • Quit worrying
    If there is one thing that I do better than most people, it's worry. You would think that after having a transcontinental move, I would be a bit of a wreck, but surprisingly I'm feeling fairly okay about things so far. That's my biggest goal for this year, to keep myself worry-free as much as possible.



  • Look after myself
    I've given up thinking that I'm going to wake up one morning and have found the easy answer to being comfortable with myself. I don't know that I'll ever have the answer, to be perfectly honest. But I know what I'm capable of, and I know that I can push myself. This year, it's all about being happy with me.



  • Live it up
    How often does one get the chance to experience life from a different perspective? I want to take this year as it comes, and enjoy whatever lies ahead! Even if this whole adventure doesn't work out perfectly, I'm still stepping outside the box just by being where I am today. Bring on the travelling!



  • Continue blogging
    With the exception of being away on holidays, I've always managed to blog daily. It's not always deep and/or meaningful, but it's therapeutic. I'm going to do my best to keep at it this year, hopefully recording my experiences of living in a foreign country, so I hope you can stick around for the ride.

Nice resolutions - easy to keep too! Too many people make resolutions which are too hard to keep and then they fail and feel awful. You keep bloggin' and I'll keep reading! :D

I'm glad you have goals for the year though. So far I have one and it's work related, so technically doesn't count, I don't think.
