Usually I stay in on New Year’s Eve in order to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for 1st January. I like to spend the day thinking about where I want to go with my life, what I want to achieve in the next twelve months, how I can best set myself on the right track for the future.
This year was a little different. This year (for reasons I may explain in a later post) I decided to live my life instead of planning it, and I went out with my brother and his friends, drank heavily, danced my socks off, and basically wrote off the next couple of days for recovery.
Now, it was a fantastic evening and I really enjoyed myself, but I feel like I’m already behind with the new year and I’m struggling to motivate myself into doing anything productive. To try and get back on track, I’m going to spend this weekend thinking about my plans, thinking about what I want to get out of life in the next year. Just thinking, a lot. I already have a rough idea of what I want, but I want to get it all down, all planned out, really think it through.
I suppose the first part of these plans is this blog. This is going to be where I document my year, this is part of what requires so much planning. I mean, it doesn’t NEED that much planning, but if I’m going to do it properly (foreshadow to another idea to be revealed later – don’t rush into things and abandon them when they end up a bit half arsed), then I should plan.
The first stages are done, and my blog looks bald. I think the time has come for a post!
So here goes. Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy reading it!
