Nothing New for the New Year

I won't say I got nuttin', but I don't got much.

Like the title says, nothing new. At least not on day 1.

I have no huge plans or aspirations for 2011. This is not a bad thing. Last year was fine, but there was a new job and all, I'm ok with a little stability, I suppose for the next 365 - if the job market allows.

I guess I have goals and all, but right now they mostly seem to be centered on that gym thing and the personal training I'm supposed to start next week - something I'm already dreading before it begins.

I fear failure.

Not that the trainer will care that much - he'll get paid either way. I fear looking stupid or not being able to do the things that need to be done to get me to the next level. I fear it will be climbing the rope in 3rd grade P.E. class - something at which I never actually succeeded.

In a way it seems silly since I've been doing well the last two years, but I assume this is kicking it up a notch and not necessarily at my own pace.

But honestly, that is my only major goal. In the past it has been to socialize more and I think we're doing that. We do want to make time to travel more, or at least not lose our vacation time, which is something that happens to me on an annual basis - so it will take more planning and commitment on our part to get that done. Oh, and maybe that 12 movies per year goal too.

None of these are resolutions. I don't really believe in that. I think saying the word sets you up for failure. Kind of like committing to 10 weeks of personal training. Ugh.

Happy New Year all.
