It’s been a full-on year. Lots of travel. Lots going on. Lots of changes. All in all, a good year.

Some highlights:

  • Queensland trip in Jan and learning to SCUBA dive with Alec.
  • USA trip in March and seeing the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley with Alec.
  • Moving in with Alec in April.
  • Best birthday ever thanks to Alec.
  • More work published again on the Google Australia blog.
  • Getting into netball again – running a team, holding an eBay challenge event and raising over $2k for the RSPCA.
  • Getting fit! I started running into work, dancing more, climbing more.
  • Europe trip in Sept with Alec. Seeing Rome and Venice.
  • Starting a blog and photo blog.
  • Improving my photography – the macro lens certainly helped!
  • Turning vegetarian. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time.

What I would like to achieve next year:

  • Job satisfaction – making sure I’m doing what I want to be doing.
  • Getting fit and well. I’ve lost a lot of fitness while I’ve been sick. I want to shake off the sickness and get back into my exercise routine.
  • Further improving my photography, particularly learning to use my camera better and indoor lighting.
  • Take at least one photo every day.
  • Travel! I want to see Japan.
  • Personally, I would like to be more relaxed and a lot less stressed. I need to have more confidence in myself and my abilities. I think that’s the way to less stress for me. I also need to speak up more about things that I’m not happy about. I tend to let things slide for the sake of keeping the peace, in all situations, and get angry about it on the inside. I think it would be not only healthier for me, but helpful for other people if I was braver and spoke up more. Again, it comes down to confidence in myself.
  • I also need to shop less, and save and budget better. Surely I don’t need MORE clothes?!
  • I want to learn more. Even if it’s just reading more books, I want to finish up 2008 with as much knowledge as I can cram into my head, particularly in areas like history and environment.
  • Get my puppies back living with me. I miss them daily.

  1. What a year! I hope everything comes through for you with your resolutions. Especially with not holding bad things in.

    I’m going to try very hard with mine, I partially and maybe fully achieved some of mine last year, so I’m hopeful! One of mine this year is definitely to be more relaxed too, I can get myself into such a stressball sometimes! Heh, and I most definitely plan to shop less…somehow!
