    Default New Year's Resolutions: 2018 Edition

    So, we've talked about how our 2017 resolutions fell through on approximately the 4th January - let's talk about the upcoming year!

    What are your goals for the year of our lord, 2018?

    I would really like to give up smoking, so I think I'm going to give it another try. My last attempt didn't go so well. I'd also like to eat healthier... I'm a sucker for fast food, sweets, chocolate and crisps. I can't remember the last time I ate a piece of fruit. And the thing is, I love fruit. I could also do with learning how to cook.

    My main goal is to try to pay off most of my debts. I also want to try to get back into the habit of writing on a daily basis.

    As dumb as it sounds, beat more games. By backlog has become ridiculous and it would be nice to actually play the games I've bought.

    There are no new games this year that I'm looking forward to and I'm not doing anything dumb like collecting Wii U or Dragon Quest games. That alone is a good start.

    Okay here goes!

    • WRITE MORE!!! This includes 1. coming back to posting one short story per week on my blog, regardless of whether anyone bothers to read them or not and 2. Finishing AT LEAST the first draft of my novel!
    • GET IN SHAPE! I’ll get back to running as soon as it’s not freezing and uber wet, and I also need to sign up for a new gym because my old one closed down!
    • ... the last one’s a secret for now

    The usual. Self improvement. Which I have managed each year, just not always as much as I'd like. I come armed with apps this year. Weight loss apps, mood tracker apps, self reflection apps. I also have a nee hobby of dressmaking and I'd like to get better at that. Also barring any setbacks, I might get my associates at the end of the year

    I would really like to start taking my professional life seriously this year. So I'd love to get a promotion and a raise by the time the year ends, and I don't mean the standard 7% raise, but something substantial.

    I want to practice drawing at least a couple of times a week and really build that skill.

    I don't want to set myself too many things to focus on, but instead try to be fully present in 2018 and enjoy it.

    I have many ideas for stories and games in my head. I'd like to start getting them out of this dumb old brain and complete one. Or at least make meaningful progress!

    I made a list of goals and aspirations for 2018.

    I didn't want to use the word resolution, though I reckon that's just because it has a lot of weight behind it. Too much pressure to not fail.

    My biggest goal is to be able to work from home. More time with the kids, with my beautiful love of my life, and cut the dress of oil and gas out of my life.

    Maybe start to try and eliminate unnecessary spending too. Picked up some old solar panels from work, built a battery bank and wired in a UPS which is a start. It gives the house 5 hours of power in case of a power failure.

    Little things like this.

    Get better at darts. If Rob Cross can be an amateur one year and PDC World Champ 12 months later, why can't I (apart from a complete lack of natural talent)?
