Do you have any plans what you'd like to achieve or try in the next year?

In 2014 I'd like to try street dance, start an accredited rodentology course, compete at kettlebell sport again, create a lot of new lifting personal bests, run a half marathon, buy a band car/van, gig in Europe, learn some Korean and take really good care of my health and finances.

Ooh, I like the way you set this up!

I'd like to: change jobs, Find more ways to reduce stress/anxiety, hit some more PRs in lifting, maaaybe run another half marathon or work on PRs on 5ks. Take better care of my body. Be a better partner to S.

Did someone say Learn Korean?!

I've been doing Korean lessons with a tutor for three months now. What's your Korean deal? I mean, why Korean?

I've been thinking about this.

I'd like to go on an international trip (haven't bought tickets, but we are pretty much planning to go to Ireland)

I'd like to start heaving lifting again but I really want a gym space to do it. I think I found the perfect place for it, but I'm waiting until March (when gym crowds die down). I'm ok with waiting because I have a couple mini goals to reach physically before I start.

I'd like to go back to school again. (I applied for a program, and I think I was turned down? Got a the most vague rejection notice ever... but they said my application will be reviewed for summer/fall semesters and I should hear by the end of January)

I've collected a few Korean films and love the way the language sounds. I've learned a few simple spoken phrases so far.

FTFY

Agreed with lilianp - I really like how you started this, 8ball (e.g., not as a resolutions thread).

I aim to sort out my dodgy foot (I have to get a new referral because I haven't been to the podiatry clinic in over a year), finish redecorating the bits of my flat that don't need additional work done to them, and get a new job. Oh, and maybe (maybe), if I can get my kitchen into a decent state, maybe possibly begin to think about considering starting a food-related home-based business. These are just the things that require effort and/or someone else's help/input. I have other intentions that are kinda given (e.g., travel plans that are for sure gonna happen), so it would seem silly to list them.

Figure out which of a couple things I am actually interested in taking some some college courses in, and enroll and get working on a diploma/certificate from said courses. keep a daily journal. Tai chi or some other gentle physical practice (group). meet and have some dates with a NICE dude. Only after I get MORE ok with myself though.. :)

Resolutions have a quality of obligation and boredom to them. I wanted to hear about the things you really want to do instead.

Quit my horrible forking job (dependent on finding another one first - preferably one that will provide health insurance)
Find an affordable yoga studio and actually go
Spend $100/month or less on groceries

There's plenty of other stuff I want to get done, but if I accomplish nothing but those few things, I'll be content with myself.

Coldandsleepy-good luck with the half century! I think I've pretty much done that already once so maybe I should shoot for 75 mile in a day bike ride? I now have not-just-a-city bike (I have a surly cross check with more road-ish tires) so it should be much more do-able!

back to gym and running regularly!

finish our house so it is our place, instead of just a place. (by finish i mean the built in cabinetry and such we decided to wait on in case we flipped it)

^^This!!!!

I actually done out my own goals for 2014 just last night so here's some:
Discontinue the medication that plays havoc with my appetite and makes me too tired to function properly.
Finish my postgrad
Get out and do more photography.
Enter some photography competitions.
Continue saving and increase my savings from €5 pw to €10 pw. I have a massive €67 saved right now.

If I manage to get the money from work they owe me then :
put away the money for the first year of the course I want to do.
Get my garden done up real nice.
Get the whole house painted.

1: Get the second bedroom cleaned out to the point where it can be used as an actual bedroom.
2: Related: Sell off old bits of comic collection.
3: Finish some models.

That's pretty much it. I should probably have more goals, but, eh. The first two are actually pretty big.
