I don't do New Year's resolutions, but that doesn't stop me from setting some goals for myself for the coming year.

I'm going to attempt the 50-book challenge again. Only this time I'm going to set myself the goal of 20 books before I leave for London. As I am currently unemployed and don't have rugby and a needy girlfriend eating up all my time, I think it's doable. I expect I'll have the first 3 books out of the way this week.

I'm also recommitting myself to working out 3 times a week and singing at least 45 minutes a day at least 5 days out of the week. These are more "unemployment resolutions" than "New Year's resolutions," since it was my plan to start this once I stopped working full-time.

I'm also going to try to be better about eating more grocery-bought, home-cooked food and ordering in/eating out less. This will improve both my physical and financial health.

Lastly, I need to go through everything in a systematic manner so that my move to London goes smoothly without leaving a bunch of stuff for the last possible moment.

All this will require more discipline than I've shown of late. However, discipline has never been a problem when I have an immediate, pressing goal, so I'm optimistic.

re: eating!
if you want to get some recipes from our south beach cookbook, you could certainly come over and photocopy some (we have a photocopier).

How is that different from a New Year's Resolution??

Perhaps only semantically. "Resolutions" sounds so resolute! Besides, these (except for the 50-book challenge) are goals that I set for myself once I ceased to be a full-time employee, so they kicked in in December.
