The Real Joy is in the Making of the List

These days I try not to make goals and lists for myself, as I find they can often lead to disappointment and a sense of under achievement. For example, new years resolutions are a big no no for me- if you want to do something, why not start now?
Coming back from holiday, however, is one of those times when I just can't resist a nice juicy 'things I want to do' list.

Here it is:
  • Review the books I've been reading, for my poor neglected 'reviews' blog.
  • Review hotels and receive Agoda points (then actually find out how to use them next time I book something)
  • Try to use DVD maker (for the first time) to showcase holiday photos
  • Put some effort into planning school work
  • Find an unsuspecting innocent at work to teach me Arabic once a week
  • Skip more
  • Cook Soup and try out Phil's wonderful recipes
  • Decorate flat, starting with a trip to Ikea!
  • Work on Spanish
  • Write the next chapters of Map Mysteries (and maybe finally give the story a proper name)
  • Learn a new musical instrument
  • Find out where on earth to buy a musical instrument from in a country that pretty much forbids them.
  • And last but never least, say a post-holiday hello to my family on skype.
I think that'll do for now, I feel exhausted just thinking about it all. Maybe its time for a mid morning nap! 

Do you have any plans or goals? I'd love to hear about them.
