New Year, New Me (Or Some New Year’s Resolutions To Try And Keep)
New Years is upon us. It has managed to sneak into our lives with all the stealth of a ninja and is once again rearing a rather ugly head. Like most people, I normally make a resolution that I then forget to keep to three days later. I have made them to exercise more (a fairly common one, I suppose), spend less (another common one) and do more with my time in Korea. I have managed to fail at these quite spectacularly. So, on this New Years Day, I present my list for 2015. Enjoy!
New Year’s Resolution One: Write On This Blog Five Times A Week
This, I have already been doing for the last month or so. But I want to make this blog a more regular thing, whether I have an interesting article on some aspects of Korean life or a rather dull one about what happened at school that day. I planned to blog so much when I first came here and until now, haven’t really done so. This will change in 2015. Watch this exciting space.
New Year’s Resolution Two: Keep On Practicing Art
Now, my art isn’t great. I have been taking an art class with Marta and I am (slowly) getting better. But recently, I have been sketching in my spare time too. Today, for example, I drew a picture of a dwarf for D&D. It is not amazing but I am proud of the progress I have made. I hope I make just a much during 2015.
New Year’s Resolution Three: Take More Photographs
As some of you will know, I treated myself to my first “proper” camera this year. I got a Nikon DSLR (Check my about me for the exact model) and I have used it…a reasonable amount. But I would like to use it more. Let 2015 be the year of trips and photographs!
New Year’s Resolution Four: Set A Definite Plan For The Next 12 Months
Now, this year ended on a rather bitter note – EPIK was being cut down as a programme and, thus, people would be losing their jobs. Though I think mine is safe, I am not sure as of yet. And, to be honest, I think I am reaching a point in my life where I want to move on from Korea during 2016. I am not sure where or when, exactly, but I would like to know by the end of the year.
Do you have any resolutions? Let me know in the comments!
