New Year, New Ventures

Happy New Year! I hope everybody has enjoyed the nice long Christmas break. I had a lovely time reuniting with all friends and family I hadn't seen in a while. I really wanted to write a post sooner but I've been bogged down with lots of the usual 'back to reality tasks' ( getting a job, sorting my car, remembering I still have a family... ) And, naturally, suffering from post-travelling come down which is not very pleasant! With the new year looming I decided to set myself some (probably ridiculously high) goals for 2011 because, let's face it, it's going to be a hard task to beat 2010 after such a great trip! So here they are. I wrote them about two weeks ago and I'm already well on my way (ish!)
2011 Goals
  • Get a temporary job. Something flexible that still gives me time to have a bit of a social life! <--Done!
  • Improve on my French. Still my ultimate dream is to speak fluent French and live in a beautiful apartment in France. Basically be Amelie. *cough* LOSER!
  • Live and work abroad <-- Working on it! News on that in the next post...
  • Chase the sun. Ideally in Bali, Thailand, Australia, anywhere hot (Because winter sucks, basically)
  • Remain happily loved up
  • Perform live
  • Write and actually finish more than one song
  • Get back into running
  • Fix my stupid stomach and be healthy :)
You may be thinking to yourself, aren't these just new years resolutions cunningly disguised as goals? Well... yes. And no! Resolutions are things you make for a week then never keep. These are things I want to work towards for the year. Fingers crossed!

What are your goals for this year?


  1. I have my fingers crossed for you :)

    I don't like making new years resolutions but bagging Xabi Alonso/Mitchell the vampire/Danny Dyer or Daniel Craig still remains top priority. If I can 'bag' all of the above then my life is complete.


  2. Glad your Ok Nicola, eeek no goals written down for me yet but maybe i should then i might complete some :) xxx

  3. I really want to learn french as well but i'm not sure how to go about it :/ hoping to add a few more stamps to my passport this year!

  4. Haha Sunny, you're going to become one of those fully fledged celeb stalkers soon!

    Holly- Set a few random ones, it'll make for an interesting year. Or few months at least!

    Phoebe- I've been watching loads of French films with the subtitles off and dictionary in hand. It's hard but nice when I can finally understand what's going on. Good luck with travel plans :) x
