Posted:Does anyone have any New Year`s Resolutions for 2003? Mine are:
To try and eat more healthily,
Become more positive and far less
stressed about everything, and To dedicate at least an hour a day
for poi practice. It would be interesting to review the topic in say a month or so`s time to see if people are managing to keep their resolutions or if they have failed miserably!

Happiness is a journey,not a destination

Break away from my Girlfriend of 3 1/2 years.

Move closer to the Beach, Where not only I can find fellow fire folks, but also start an Idea I have been pondering for years. (Skiing a Wave!)

That would be all for now.

Posted:I don't usually believe in new years resolutions, because I don't see the point in waiting for the start of a new year to do something different, it makes more sense to me most of the time to just do it.

However, this year I'm making a new years resolution to finally get rid of my belly. I've been trying for a while with very little success, then all of a sudden christmas is upon us and I end up eating really badly.
So, I've decided that I'll eat the stuff I want to until after new year, then all the junk is being cut out and I'm eating properly from there on in, as well as getting as much exercise as it takes.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Stop smoking my obligatory three cigarettes when I go to the pub. (Which is the only vice I have left!)

Well be helping you with all that soon enough! That is if you would like the help...

Anyways my NewYears res is to be myself and to be that happy shinny self I have come to discover in the past year or so.

I think its all about the self nowadays. Although I am sur next year will probably be about the whole.
Internal reflection.
External smiles and hugs!

love to all

Posted:grow huge amounts of plant life all over the city. Smash the wall of the zoo. Invite a heard of goats into the town centre. Exercise my imagination (It is actually a muscle) Grow more things learn about the world a little more do more handstands, stand on my head without any hands. Draw another picture. Sort it out. Learn to carve wood, see if I can't get two devilsticks going. grow more things. Explore the city on my bike. Introduce huge collonies of insects to the city.

Posted:This year will be my first real New Year's resolution ever. I really want to document my year. I do so much cool crap during the weekends and vacation and I want to put it all in a scrap book at the end of the year titled "2003"... I think it'd be cool. And achievable.

I like the whole "not really knowing what's in store" part of life. Especially since life's been pretty good lately. Most of my recent surprises have been good. And involve naked women. Which is always nice.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:ok, i dont really do the whole NYR thing, it has undertones of commitment, and making an effort that i just dont dig........ hehehe joking

here they are:

Get out of debt, again. This is the first time in ages that i've owed money, and boy does it suck.

Get my own place and furnish it!

Spend some serious quality time with my friends, and make new and lasting friendships. Im realising more and more how important the ppl around me are, and how much i really appreciate them....

and, i'm going to put some serious effort into my hobbies. Not having a telly when i get my own place is going to help, so i'll be practicing all my fire stuff, at least an hour a day, and hopefully introducing more ppl to spinning! HOORAY!

Currently on the right side up of the world.

Posted:Hmmm.... Okay...Well, I'm pretty happy with my life, but I do need to do change a few things to make 2003 more positive and stuff....

Do something interesting in the Uni holidays instead of just going home and working - live while I'm still obligation free!

Appreciate myself more and quit feeling like I have to justify parts of my personality that some people just 'dont get'...

Go sky diving with my best friend

Realise that all the people around me who care about me are far more important than the one or two that make me feel like shit.

Tell the dude at college that thinks we are besties and that I think he is wonderful that I actually think he is a toss and treats me like shit.

Study a lot harder with my degree than I did this year and do fantabulously in my last year.

Stop procrastinating and actually do all the things I want to do!

Hope everyone has a fantastic New Year....


We all take different paths in life, but no matter which path we take, we take a little of each other everywhere...
