After two years of tracking progress against my goals, I’ve decided it’s time to hang up my Bloggers Cap and retire my Pen Licence while I focus on some bigger challenges that I’m keen to conquer in 2013. Continue reading >
Before too much of the year sails by (“HOW is it already February?” he asks, shaking his head and tutting) I thought I’d post a quick summary of the last flicks I ticked off my “must-see film” list for 2012.
This last batch was a really mixed-bag and rounded out a year of enjoying lots of recommended films I hadn’t carved out time to see before. (I got through 25 in total, just 1 film shy of my goal of 26.)
With 2012 done and dusted, I’m taking stock of the year and while I’m in a reflective mood, I thought I’d add a quick blog about my best workout of 2012.
In late October, I competed in the 2012 Burnie Ten – an annual coastal run staged in Northern Tasmania which I last blogged about in November last year.
This year, I set a PB for this 10 Km event, had a really, really fun time and consider it the best workout I enjoyed during the year as I worked to meet a goal of exercising more.
In my last post of film reviews, way back in May, I provided a snapshot of the flicks I watched during quarter one of 2012. At that time, I was well ahead of my goal of watching 26 must-see films during the year.
Cut to the end of quarter three and my progress has slowed and, on the face of things, my enjoyment of the films I’ve picked to catch up on this year has lessened also. Poop.
Here then is a mini post with equally mini film reviews of the flicks I did manage to clock up in quarter three.
Having reclaimed time in my diary for this malnourished blog, I thought I would share with you some of the books I’ve gobbled up since my last mini-review post. I’ve had some ridiculously good luck with the books I’ve selected from my to-read list, evidenced by the gold stars I’ve handed out willy-nilly.
Incidentally, I had a goal of reading 12 books this year. No, you didn’t read that incorrectly. Just 12 books (a measly target I know). Pleasingly, I’ve met that target before the third quarter of 2012 has closed and now I can, hopefully, blitz it. That’s the plan anyway.
