I’m not sure I really believe in New Year’s resolutions, but it seems like a good time every year to reflect on the previous year, and see what I can change in my life for the better.
Unfortunately, I seem to be pretty bad at keeping resolutions I make, so my New Year’s resolutions this year will be very similar to those I made last year. And the year before that. And maybe even the same as 2009. They would be:
- Get in shape/lose weight/eat healthier/exercise more
- Learn Mandarin Chinese (my girlfriend is Chinese, so this is important for the longevity of our relationship)
- Write a blog
Unfortunately, I’ve failed at all three of these things the past three years. Every year I start a blog, hit the gym, and start learning Chinese; all with a vengeance. But then it peters out.
I figure this year, I’ll use the blog to keep track of the other two activities. Hopefully at least one of them will give me something interesting to write about on a regular basis!
