Things I Want To Do This Year

2013 was super-surprisingly eventful and I hope 2014 is similarly eventful.

Following on from some stuff I listed a while back as my NYRs, I wanted a write a post more comprehensively summarizing what I want out of this year:

  1. The Dark Middle Chapter of University - First year was great, I imagine second year will be more difficult. Wanna make it through this year’s courses with all passes, hopefully higher. Class-wise this year is looking pretty good with classes on literary/music/art journalism & some classes on games & web design.
  2. BETTER JOB - It’s great that I finally got a job last year! I have now quickly reached the discovery that this job is very bad. I need a new one that pays me…fairly and is more upfront about the hours they need me to work.
  3. SHARES - Re: the bad financials & a long-harbored desire to try my hand at buying shares. I’m gonna put a bunch of money aside and get my dividends on!
  4. CAR - My line of thinking at present is that saving up and acquiring a second-hand car is going to become significantly more difficult post-moving out. THEREFORE, I’m going to look at snagging a cheap vehicle before moving out becomes a thing. It may be an expense, but it would be worth it - especially with the job options it would open up,
  5. COFFEE - I want to do a short  course thing so as to further open up job options at cafes & the like.
  6. TV - Here is a list of TV shows I want to get through this year (Anything else is a bonus): True Blood Season 7, Game of Thrones Season 4, Hannibal Season 2, Community Season 5 (In progress), Girls Seasons 2-3 (In progress), Newsroom Seasons 1-2, Twin Peaks Seasons 1-2 (In progress), (Finish) Veronica Mars Seasons 1-3, Orange is the New Black.
  7. Revisit Melbourne! - Visiting Melbourne was a major highlight of last year. I am 100% down to visit again! Furthermore, I like the idea of a short trip to New Zealand or Singapore if possible.
  8. FOODS - Foods are pretty rad. HOWEVER, I would like to reduce the amount of bad food I eat. Fairy normal desire, I imagine. More fruit & homecooked food will be on the plate as opposed to frozen or takeaway food.
  9. COOKING - Re: Foods, cooking has proven to be a super useful skill in the last few months and I look forward to cooking more. Fuck the haters, cooking and eating your own meals is rad.
  10. WRITING - I want to get back into games writing on a regular basis! This is currently underway and I while I hope it goes somewhere I will be quite happy if I continue to build my portfolio at this pace.
  11. WRITING 2 - I want to put together at least one short film script. This is spurred by a bunch of external factors as well as a liking of the script format (seriously though, may need a separate blog-post to detail such affinities).
  12. WRITING 3 - I want to try and write and self-publish some kind of eBook this year. I haven’t nailed anything down quite yet BUT am determined to make THINGS HAPPEN.
  13. RELATIONSHIP - I have been with my current Girlfriend for eight months. Things are kinda really great. I hope they continue to be really great through the next year.

Late New Year’s Resolutions

  • Get back into regular games writing
  • Get better job than my current wage-slavery
  • Acquire cheap secondhand car
  • Buy shares as an experiment
  • Attempt to move out if finances allow

When being young starts getting old
A new place saves face or so I’m told
Be the new kid, on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop

I’m just a moment, so don’t let me pass you by
We could be a story in the morning, but we’ll be a legend tonight
