Yes, I’ve been very absent. I blame it on polar eating penguins, and I’ve just managed to beat them off with a stick.
As some of you may have noticed, it’s now 2015. This is actually a source of great irritation for me as now my facebook is filled with people vowing that this year will “be my year” and resolving to change themselves. This year will clearly be the year that they change everything about themselves, lose weight and get a better job!
Or not. As much as anything, 2015 is just me trying to remember to write the right date on everything. I don’t like to make resolutions any more because I’m more likely to keep to my resolutions if I make them at a time that I actually want to change, and not at an arbitrary time.
This sounds super grumpy and scrooge-like, but I’m not! It’s just that for me, new years has never been a big deal for me. I like the excuse to spend time with my family and friends, but I always reach a point when I just want the festive period to be over. I like spending time with people, but I’m also an antisocial mare and like getting home to my little nest of quiet and nerdery.
Don’t get me wrong, I do have resolutions and plans for this year. I’d like to go to a gig, turn 24, watch some classic films and maybe do a sky dive. On the other hand, I’d already planned to be doing that from last year.
Anyway, how about you? What do you want to do this year? Any awesome resolutions, or fun plans?
