The first week of the year is over already. Hope it was a good one for you. Mine hasn't been that great. I haven't been sleeping and work has been pretty bad. Friday was bad enough to make me cry with frustration. None of the management team wants to take responsibility for anything and we end up having to have meetings about things which could be sorted out by telling certain other people to just do their job. Anyway, I'm kind of dreading going to back tomorrow. At least Sherlock is on tonight.

I've been thinking this week about last year and the year ahead. Last year was a pretty amazing one for me. For a lot of people it seemed to be quite depressing, but I achieved a lot and I did a lot I'd never done before.

- I lost an extra 13lbs since the start of 2011 and have kept all the weight off.
- I ran 10K in June doing the Race for Life in June.
- I completed and posted a 25,000 word Psych fic, which I'd been writing for 2 years.
- I met Russell Howard in York after one of his shows
- I went to Comic Con for to the first time in July and had one of the best times of my life. I met Dominic Monaghan and hi-fived Dule Hill. Doesn't get much better than that.

I don't really like the idea of New Year resolutions. I mean if you want to change something, change it. But it's nice to have goals and something to work towards, so I've put together some for the year ahead.

- Stay at a healthy weight and preferably under 10.7 stones.

- Read 12 books. Yeah that doesn't sound like many, but somewhere along the way I've stopped reading actual books as much as I used to. So one a month is a nice goal to get me started again.

- Learn to play the violin. I used to play when I was younger but I gave it up. I've always loved it though and my mum bought me a new one, so I'd love to learn again.

- Write 100,000 words.

- Learn to drive. This has been on my list for years and it may not happen this year either, being so expensive and all, but I'd really like to try.
