To boldly go…

#330: An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2015 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self improvement!

Good question! Last year, one of my resolutions was to complete WordPress’ 365 Days of Writing Prompts challenge, which I think (minus the odd missed days – thanks Norway press trip!) I’ve managed to achieve.

Since I love self improvement, I’ll no doubt set a quite few various resolutions. Amongst them will probably be – to travel abroad at least twice (I’ve never had two holidays in one year); to finally move into London (it’s been a dream ever since I started working in central back in 2012); to progress in my career – whether it be in magazines/publishing, video editing/presenting/producing or even PR; to take part in more video interview/junkets and video projects; and no doubt to learn something new – whether it be mastering photography, finally learning British Sign Language through official tuition or even taking classes on a particular video editing software… I just love being a sponge!

No longer a mere mortal

#180: You’ve imbibed a special potion that makes you immortal. Now that you’ve got forever, what changes will you make in your life? How will you live life differently, knowing you’ll always be around to be accountable for your actions?

Since I’m immortal, I’m guessing I wouldn’t need to eat… which is a bit of a bummer really! Although one less expense to worry about. This would allow me to use more of my earnings to live where ever I wanted. This would include abroad too, as I’d want to travel the entire world and experience everything. From releasing baby turtles to the sea to walking the Great Wall of China! Presuming I wasn’t actually going to age that is…

With reference to accountability – I’m guessing when you live forever, you learn not to care so much about things. I’m not saying that I’d participate in bad actions/behaviour and not care, but just the day to day trivial things that people worry about.
