New Years Resolutions 2020


Previous years: 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009

First up – lets review last year!

  • Meet more people

Hmm. Sort of? I don’t feel like I’ve met a lot of new people, but I’ve met some good people, and that’s more important

  • No, really, get into shape

I am probably ending the year at the same sort of weight, which makes me grumpy, but I am stronger, and working on it.

  • Take better care of my body

I am useless at this.

  • Do the things without worrying about other people

…nope. I feel like I got even more in my head this year. That’s ridiculous.

And now, for 2020… (nope, still doesn’t look right)

  • Stop getting stuck in my head

This is probably the same as not being worried about what other people are going to think, but it’s really something I need to work on. It’s dumb, I know it’s dumb and yet I still worry about how things will be seen. It took me 3 months to write an email to someone to arrange a meeting, and it was sorted in 5 minutes.

  • Read more

When I was a kid, the library was the best place ever. Our local library was inside the high school (Bishops High) and I loved digging out the latest copies of Sweet Valley and Babysitters Club. After uni, I didn’t really have a chance to get to the library because they would be out of the way of my commute, so I dropped it.

I signed up to the King County library when we first got here, but never actually used my card until about 6 months ago, when I realised that I could not only get books that I wanted to read (but didn’t want to buy) but also I could borrow books on my Kindle. Total game changer.

  • Send more snail mail

I really wanted to send some Christmas cards out this year, but with our trip to London and realising I didn’t have many addresses, there wasn’t really enough time to get it all done. So! In 2020, I’d like to send random little things to people because as much as I want to, I can’t really afford to send parcels of goodies when it costs SO much to post things. I sent my sister a 5lb parcel (which yeah could have been lighter but I get excited about sending things!) and it cost $85 to send. I don’t think I even spent that on the things inside. (wait…maybe. The point still stands, and the men at the post office keep telling me it’s silly to send parcels where the postage costs more than the contents)

Tell me about your resolutions, or non resolutions!
