It’s the 1st of February, which means it’s time to set myself some new challenges for the month. In January I set 16 and achieved 13 of them. It was pretty good going. I’ve actually been a little bit easier on myself for February, and I shall tell you for why. Firstly, it’s a shorter month (slightly…ahem), and secondly because due to a little thing called London Fashion Week, I shall be out of action for around a week. I will be a strangely dressed, cocktailed-up, exhausted zombie with an increasingly heavy camera around my neck and a Moleskine notebook on my lap.
I’ve set just 10 challenges. I did have a rather good suggestion this morning that I try and write a 50,000 word novel across the month, a la NaNoWriMo, but I simply don’t have the time what with all the other writing, and well, sleeping I intend to do. They’re not my most imaginative set of challenges, and I feel a bit like I’m playing it safe, but February is going to be a crucial month in keeping on top of various projects, so I don’t want my own personal lunacy get in the way of, you know, actually doing things that I’m supposed to be doing. Perhaps I’ll make March a month when I force myself to do some really insane stuff?!
So without much further ado, I give you…my ten resolutions for February. As ever, feel free to drop me a tweet (@ameliafsimmons) if you have any suggestions, or if you fancy doing your own set of challenges.
And remember….”Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while, it may pass you by.”
- Go rollerskating or blading
- Eat ice cream in Winter
- Make a stop motion animation
- Despite probably being single for it, have a great Valentine’s Day (or Valentinstag, as those crazy Germans call it)
- Visit a new town or city and explore
- Write a poem
- Try a different hairstyle every day for a week
- Do something to benefit someone else (rolled over from Jan)
- Attend a lecture on something completely out of my comfort zone/sphere of knowledge
- Visit a proper tea house
There we go. As I said, not my most imaginative…but they’re still challenges!
