2015 Goals (not resolutions)

In which I prepare for my 35th year.

Aftermath of New Years Eve in Times Square

Despite my New Year Humbuggery I do like to have a set of vague goals for the upcoming months. I call them goals because this makes it hurt less when I fail to meet one, naming them resolutions just dares me to break them.

So my goals for 2015 are to try and move life on a bit, I’ve had a good few years laying down the foundations for a good life (getting married, fathering, house buying etc) and now feel as though this is the year to kick on a bit. With that in mind I have my backlog from 2014 and some new aspirations.

The backlog

  • Read a book – As with every year I need to read more. I used to devour pages like bacon slices but that has slowed. With that in mind I am setting a goal of 12 books for the year. That starts this weekend.
That book has already been chosen
  • Save money – This may not be that easy while still in debt but I have a plan to clear as much money owed as possible. There is going to be a point in a few years when loans are cleared and life will be good.
  • Eat more vegetables and exercise – I’m signed up for the Wolf Run in April. This needs to happen.

Blogging goals

  • Write more  – I’m already doing well this year, after the Red Posting I have plenty of old posts but I’m also looking to write more on being a father.
  • Comment more  – yeah, I say this all the time but I am a rubbish WordPress community member.
  • Get some awards – Fingers crossed, and I may drop a few hints from time to time.
  • Not move this site – Itchy feet, must resist, I think I’ll just keep changing the theme instead.

New Goals

  • Move on with my career – I’ve been happy to stay at the same level in my job for a few years now, I think it’s about time I stepped up my game and made a push for the next rung on the ladder.
  • Sort out the garden – it’s a bit of a mess at the moment and needs a lot more work doing than I got done in 2014.
  • Do something life changing – having a year off big life events was great, but I don’t like calm. If I see a millpond I want to create some waves.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.
