Things to look forward to in the new year

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I'm not really a fan of resolutions, so I thought I'd try this out. I've had quite a tough year and so have been trying to find a few things to look forward to for 2013. You guys got an ideas? Would be nice to get a really positive thread going.

These are mine:

*Hopefully passing my driving test, getting a car and therefore gaining a bit more freedom.
*Going sailing
*The spring/summer so I can start hitting the beach after/before uni and at weekends
*Also hoping that this will be the year I start to make real progress in getting better

    I like your thing about sailing, the last time I went I was on a little 1/2 person topper boat. Loved it.

    Whatever life brings me. Lots of books, music and car journeys too.

    Im not looking forward to next year all that much as i'll be back at uni again but positive things are:

    Finishing my course in june (can not come quickly enough!)
    Hopefully developing my career, getting a 'proper' job
    Moving out to my own place (hopefully)
    Meeting someone nice to go out with (when pigs fly!)

    To continue getting better/remaining stable
    Hopefully being allowed to drive again
    Experiencing new things and enjoying them


    Oh and having a healthy bank balance! :)

    I'm getting a passport in the New Year, and I'm saving up to travel, so hopefully I can go on a holiday or something, and meet new people!

    I've wanted to go to a Formula One race for years and planning on just doing it in 2013.

    Also going to start reading more and learn to cook.

    And spend less time sat on my ass doing nothing!

    After been out of the country working 17 to 18 hr days for the majority of the 6 months I was away, I'm looking forward to being able to enjoy long days!

    The things I'm really looking forward to aren't really appropriate for here :D.

    But things I'm planning to do/am looking forward to:

    - watching my baby niece grow and knitting all sorts of awesome for her.
    - in general I want to do and finish a lot more knitting.
    - spending more time with Boy and his awesome friends. Also I want to try and see *my* friends more.
    - Helen has had me doing loads this year for YouthNet and it's been awesome fun so more of that would be cool.
    - I'm going to keep working on getting a job so I can move out (again).

    the most mindblowing thing for me will be becoming a mum and finally meeting our baby. i imagine 2013 my focus will be motherhood but i'm looking forward to the changes all of that brings.. (not so much sick in the hair..)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    im looking forward to feeling more stable. Im looking forward to things getting easier with the children. Im looking forward to maybe getting a holiday or two in there. Im looking forward to maybe being consistently well enough to do some voluntary work.
    Looking forward to maybe getting back into my driving lessons and maybe even sticking at them and passing and not falling apart.

    I am only half looking forward to these things because chances are whatever happens i wont even enjoy cos im a loser

    Suzy, it's great you've got all those things that you can look forward to, even though you're unsure if you'll be able to enjoy them fully. Even if you can enjoy them a little bit, that's still really good.

    Graduating from uni.
    Paying off my overdraft.
    Getting a day ticket for Reading festival to see Eminem.
    Ibiza with the lads.
    Saving up for another travelling stint at the start of next year.

    I'm looking forward to sewing lots of things on my new sewing machine and knitting lots of things too.

    How are people getting along with these?

    Looking at mine.....
    1) Hopefully passing my driving test, getting a car and therefore gaining a bit more freedom
    2) Going sailing.
    3) The spring/summer so I can start hitting the beach after/before uni and at weekends
    4) Also hoping that this will be the year I start to make real progress in getting better

    1) done!
    2) got a week's sailing planned for the summer
    3) when I bring my car back here and the clocks change....
    4) big fail ha

    I don't think that's a fail. You're pro-actively seeking support, which is huge. You can't blame yourself for the failure of services, given everything you're doing really well.

    i'm looking forward to starting a new college course in something i love to do.
    i am looking forward to hopefully recovering fully and being able to be confident with myself in the summer.
    going to the beach with friends and being comfy to actually have my legs out.
    xo

    Stolen from Lexi as I dittoed her:

    1. I finish in a few weeks. Passed everything, just need to pass my project
    2. Interview on friday so we will see
    3. Unlikely as if I get the job it will be live on site. Unless I don't get it and I find another job, but until then I'll have to go back home
    4. I'm now with someone, only it's long distance so we don't get to see each other as much as we'd like :(
