5 Things to Do on 2012 (Just Don’t Call Them Resolutions)
New Years resolutions are cack. They are always boring (stop smoking, loose weight etc.), usually are half-hearted and are rarely kept. In fact I usually end up spending more effort trying to come up with them than actually trying to keep them. Instead of resolutions then, I have come up with 5 thinks I have to do and look forward to in the coming year.
Joining and Using the Library……
Rather embarrassingly I have championed libraries more than I have actually visited them. In this time of Tory cuts the best way of showing support is by actually using the facilities, especially when the facilities are as good as here in Sheffield. The online selection really is excellent. With bill prices rising it seems like the best time to start, especially with books and comics (which I get through at an alarming rate) being so expensive.
Watching Hi-def on Blu-ray…..
Forget my obsessive buying of movies on DVD, this year I’m upgrading to Blu-ray.
Walking in the Peak District…..
The weather might currently be shitty but it will improve, and when it does I plan to visit the Peaks as much as possible. I have visited the Dark Peaks a few times by train, but Metro also offer a regular bus service into the local White Peaks. Christmas spending has provided me with an OS map, and I have already sketched out a few walks for the coming months.
Going to the Cinema….
2012 is the year of awesome franchises! The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit, Promethius, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo…….I’m drooling already.
Having a Holiday Somewhere…..
Finally. I need a fucking holiday.
