NY Resolutions [Jan. 4th, 2006|01:46 pm]
[mood| contemplative]
[music|Pat Benatar - Hit me with your best shot ]

So 2005 was a pretty shit year all up for me. So bring on 2006! I'm hoping this is more of a 365 day to do list rather than a resolution because for some reason resolutions never work out I figure writing them down will be pretty helpful.

* Finish Uni (yay)
* Lose the weight I put on last yeah (approx 6 kilos doh)
* Find a cool hobby (open to suggestions)
* Get a job
* Save money for a really great holiday (Location TBA)
* Get my crap in order
* Do a major clean out (inspired by classics serious clean out)

I may add more if I think of any but this list is pretty sweet.

Bwahaha, I can't believe I've actually been an inspiration to someone! I get to check something off my list, and we're only four days into the year! I am such a star!

*kicks back and coasts for the rest of 2006*

These sound like awesome resolutions. I'm sure I'd be able to come up with some very cool hobby suggestions. I am the Hobby Queen. When do you want to do said hobby and how much time are you willing/wanting to spend on it?

Job-wise, are you waiting til you finish uni to get the full-time job, or are you wanting to get a part-time one this year?

Look at you all role model-y ;) You are a star ♥


Not too much time on the hobby maybe like one day a week (like a weekend morning). Not too much of a cost either though I don't mind spending some upfront costs if the actual hobby costs are not too high. I want to do something new and different but that's all i've got in mind.

I'm looking at getting some casual/part time work to go with uni this year and then do the full time thing next year. The job is mainly to pay for holiday and other cool stuff.

Well you do have the writing thing and while it's not uni I think doing any tertiary studies are good :D

Will do! If I mark one off i'll harass you into doing the same ;)

Yay for resolutions/lists!

There are some there that I definitely need to try.

Cool hobbies...ummm...some sort of art or crafty thing?
You could make jewellery or knit or something so that your time/effort/money goes into making something useful. Plus things like that can be used as gifts.
But I am bad at hobbies...

I have heaps of wool that I bought on sale so knitting would be a good idea but I can't find my knitting needles perhaps after the big clean out ;)

My friend makes really nice earrings/bracelets so I wouldn't want to get into her territory she's a major bitch who often accuses people of single white femaling her bwahaha as if :roll:

Thanks mid! ♥

I would like to some other NY resolution list so I can poach ideas :shifty: *already poached mids hobby ideas*

Sorry I haven't commented yet, but I thought of a hobby for you: MAKE BUTTONS! buttons are great. That's what I plan to do this year. I'll send you some if they're any good. ;)
