52 in 52 for 2014

New year, new list. I’m excited about this list, there are LOADS of fun things on there and I think every single item is achievable without struggling too much (that’s not to say they still won’t be a challenge).

Physical Activity (14 items)

  • Zorbing
  • Enter an event I’ve not been in before
  • Learn to Kitesurf (M kitesurfs, and it looks like a lot of fun)
  • Try stand up paddleboarding
  • Complete a triathlon (I’ve enrolled in two for the year – my first short distance in February, and a full length at the end of the year in November)
  • Use my surfboard (had it for a few years now, figure it’s about time I used it)
  • Sleep at an aquarium
  • Canal tour
  • Go whale watching
  • Visit the hinterlands/mountains
  • Visit Palmersaurus
  • Visit jumping crocodile cruise (my friend Jo is due to give birth at some point, so I will be going to the Northern Territory to visit her afterwards, and will be able to go on this cruise at the same time)
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Go camping with my dog (since normally she doesn’t get to come)

    2013 – 52 in 52 results

    Well hello there again. In my last post I said I was going to start writing more frequently again, and then I don't go and write for 3 months. Well, shit.

    52 list

    Every year I put together a list of things I would like to accomplish during the year. It’s a total of 52 things in 52 weeks, hence the list is called 52 in 52. These items can range from the super fun things (girls weekend) to the mundane (go to the dentist). The only rule I have is that the goal needs to have a measurable success point, so vague goals don’t count e.g. Be happier.

    As someone who is driven by goals and aspirations, I find it’s great fun to make this list at the start of the year. And in the years where I have completed a lot of the tasks, I finish the year with a sense of achievement. In the years where I don’t, there’s nothing like failure to make myself more determined for the following year.  [...]  read more
