Last year my one resolution was: Music. I was going to go to more live shows, seek out new bands and update my ipod. Or something like that.
The only music I really got involved in was choosing our wedding playlist and figuring out how to program our new stereo (wedding gift) to Radio 3 and Magic FM (just kidding, I also put XFM on there, because, of course, I am very indie). But even better, after a week in
So this year's resolution is called: Projects
It all came about from a conversation I had with a friend over a bottle of wine. We were lamenting about all the projects we could never get done, things like sorting through photos or cleaning out this or that, because there was always something more interesting to do. Mainly sitting together over a bottle of wine to discuss such burning issues.
And here was my thought on the matter. I believe that sometimes the reason I (and feasibly other people) never get around to those projects just waiting in the wings is that 1) there are too many, which is overwhelming and 2) there is no deadline.
So what I proposed to my friend is that we try the one-month, one-project approach. That would mean by the end of the year we would have completed 12 projects. Which, in my opinion, sounds like a whole lot.
January's project for me has been 'technology' and has mainly consisted so far of spending a lot of money on a new laptop and getting a souped-up smart phone whose operating system still somewhat baffles me. I had to actually call Vodafone to figure out how to lock it. But I have downloaded some apps and have even been reading books on it as an experiment in e-reading (not so bad, actually).
Next month's project… wedding photos! Just in time for our one-year anniversary, I would like to have at least one photo from our wedding framed and on display. I was pretty embarrassed in December when we had some of the Hub's family over and there was nary a wedding photo in sight. Although with the Hub's lack of enthusiasm for photos in general (he hasn't even looked properly through our wedding ones) perhaps they just thought I was being a supportive good wife?
Happy (Belated) New Year's!
