2008: A Suspiciously Significant Year

January 1, 2008

It’s a brand new year and I hope it’s begun beyond well for you. ๐Ÿ™‚
2008 started out incredibly for me. I spent new year’s eve at a barbeque party with my family – on a rooftop, with camp-esqe tents, a bonfire, succulent pieces of burnt meat and fireworks. ๐Ÿ™‚ With that and Snow, the night couldn’t have been better! What’s more, my keyboard’s fully functional too! [Of course, things would’ve been better if Gapp The Twit hadn’t unceremoniously hung up on me when I very sweetly called to wish him at midnight. :P]

In keeping with family tradition, here’s the to-do list for this year:

  1. Be more health conscious aka actually lose weight. Which means I’m essentially giving up on the things that make life worth living aka cake, ice cream, rasagolla et al. No, seriously. Which also means I need to find food other than those and rabbit food to survive on. It’s a good thing I drink sugarless, black coffee. If I had to give that up, I think I mightn’t survive.
  2. Season my voice again. I can still sing quite effortlessly. But I totally want to work on my bass and breath.
  3. Try and see if we can make our DumbC luck work again. And at a lot more places than last year. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Read at least 50 good books.
  5. Actually put FilmCamp to use and write a workable script.
  6. Travel alone. [Yes, I’m not allowed to do that yet. :|]
  7. Get back to waking up at 4 am everyday and not be waking-up-mid-day type sloth.
  8. Try to transform from eternally hyper bouncing ball of energy into cool, poised woman of substance. [Don’t laugh, you!]
  9. Make a wacky hand-painted fabric something. Friend and I made footprint curtains a while back. Was ultra-fun. If anyone has ideas, spew them in comment section! ๐Ÿ˜€
  10. Try and go back to camp as a counsellor. ๐Ÿ™‚ Was fun as a camper – think this will be funner!
  11. Bake a cake/Cook for somebody I’m fond of.
  12. Get some direction in life.
  13. Do a photo chronicle of the year. [Which hasn’t started out very well cos I have no photos of party last night. :P]
  14. Do an honesty week sometime.
  15. Get to respectable level in Italian. ๐Ÿ™‚

And all this before the icky age of 20. Which leaves me with exactly 11 months and 13 days. Goot luck, me. I’m beginning the year with my fingers crossed. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice, nice. So many thingsto do eh? Except for three points we really don’t have that many things in common I must say. Firstly, I too am gonna try the lose-weight thingy for the 107th time. Secondly, I too am thinking about re-kindling my reading skills. And last but not the least, I am going try and learn Spanish properly.

    “eternally hyper bouncing ball of energy”
    but why would you want to lose that?

    Best of luck, anyway ๐Ÿ™‚ I know my limits and make no resolutions.
