New year's resolutions for 2015

I don't believe in setting new year's resolutions that you don't want to do. Why make life a struggle?

On Christmas Day I watched the first episode of Grayson Perry: Who Are You? at bedtime. It set my brain on fire. In my insomnia, I jotted down the following things I want to do this year:

  • Go to Man Choir on Thursday at 19:00
  • Pass the AdWords display and video exams
  • Host an a capella sea shanty night
  • Dance?
  • Get in touch with the Navigator guy
  • Write to the Gentlemen's Club
  • Visit my friends Paul and Kate Ylioja in Norfolk
  • Visit my cousin Joe Kennedy and maybe go to the football at Dulwich Hamlet with him
  • Reach my target weight by Bloomsday
  • Give at least 2% of my income to charity
  • Launch Sol Samba WordPress site
  • Purge my possessions
  • Change my job title
  • Do a proper A/B testing project
  • Go to a conference: SMX London? Link Love?
  • Visit my sister Laura in Ireland
  • Write about my lack of girlfriends
  • Live alone: move out of 25 Walton Well Road
  • Cycle with my friends Mélanie and Sam (not necessarily together)
  • Go to the Coburg samba festival in Germany
  • Play at Notting Hill Carnival with the London School of Samba
  • Watch Shakespeare at The Globe Theatre
  • Join Zappi's cycling club
