Welcome 2012. I’ve had two all in all quite good years in 2010 and 2011 and most recently I switched jobs and work in the industry I love for years now and with a great and committed team. Those are all prerequisites for a great 2012 as well. So here’s my list of personal resolutions for the new year.
- Blog more
This blog is horribly neglected. I am a constant writer on the corporate blog, yet my personal blog could do with some new content as well, even though some authors claim that “blogging is dead” in the social age. Also I suspect there is one Spanish reader who might like to see more posts here.
- Work out more
Not driving to work by bicycle anymore (too far/clothing demands) took my daily workout away. There is an opportunity for weekly badminton with the colleagues as well as a slot for swimming. Would be great and healthy if I manage both.
- Lose weight
Goes in line with #2
- Digitize my physical media
I barely listen to my CD’s anymore – only to the songs I have on the various electronic devices. There’s several hundred of CD’s waiting to be digitized and tagged. Not sure what to do about the boxes full of audio cassettes.
- Make photobooks
Then again, sitting back and browsing through an actual physical album with photos is quite relaxing. A best-of for each year of digital photography would be cool.
- Improve my guitar skills
My guitar skills have not really improved in years. Taking lessons a few years ago did not really work out, mostly due to my busy schedule. So I need to think of a strategy how I can play more often and improve. Maybe the new gadget I gave myself for Christmas helps?
- Spend more time with friends
I’ve been something of a hermit the past years (people who know me know why). Gladly I made some new friends in 2010/2010 and I would enjoy spending more time with them. The old friends are scattered all over, but there is car and train. An exception might be my friends in Kiwiland.
Finally the equipment is all here, so caches in the vicinity – beware!
Well, quite a list already. Welcome, 2012!
