Hello and Happy New Year (if indeed it is New Year where you are). Hope you are enjoying yourself this evening (if indeed it is evening where you are). If you are not enjoying yourself that much that really is ok too – most of us are only pretending (see diagram).
I quite like thinking up New Year resolutions. The important thing is to not take them too seriously so that when you break them it doesn’t matter too much.
I haven’t decided upon mine yet, as there is still several hours to go. When I decide upon them I will write them in a notebook. I will be starting a new notebook (a 9 x 14cm Moleskine heavy-paper no-lines sketchbook in case you are interested). One of my resolutions will involve bicycling, and another a new club I plan to start. I can’t give any more details than that at the moment. New hobbies make good resolutions, so if you’re stuck for ideas you could start there. In order to start them you may need to give up some old hobbies, otherwise a state of excessive busyness could result.
Please do share your resolutions and impending hobbies (serious or otherwise) in the comments below.
Happy New Year in any case, and all best wishes for 2011.
