Happy New Year Everyone! (anyone)

So, I'm in the library, and I'm procrastinating while I wait for my essay-books to be delivered from the stacks.

Last year was good. It was my best year for a very long time. No major upsets, many major achievements.

I don't have New Year's Resolutions (they are for the Weak, apparently), but I'm going to concentrate on some things more heavily, and give up others entirely, if possible.

Things to encourage:

- early mornings: breakfast or swimming, either way up at 7 and out of the house by 8 is the way to go

- more time at home: in a 'reading articles and doing work' way, rather than a 'sitting on facebook and obsessing about buffy' way.

- more wandering: further afield - have covered most of the ground within the ring road now

- more music: not just listening to stuff I already know and love

- more financing: should be able to plan and budget and not cry at the thought of looking at my bank balance

Things to discourage / give up:

- excessive drinking: for so many reasons, not least the horrendous expense of being a real ale junkie

- naps: sleep is for the night, not for brief bursts before dinner

- obsessive DVD watching: more addictive than crack (so I hear, anyway)

- 'harmless' crushes: accidentally calling your boyfriend 'Spike' is not the way forward

- being a psychoanalyst: elusive people aren't that exciting once you get past the walls (repeat to fade)

Okey, books should be here now!

PS did you really accidentally call M 'Spike'?

Uhuh, though not in a situation where he could take too much offence, luckily!
