I made some progress on my 2013 New Years Resolutions during March…
Put a video on YouTube
Yes – on February 25th I uploaded my first YouTube video. It was some scenes from Boston’s Snowpocalypse – but with the fatal flaw of being added waaaay after the fact so no-one was interested in watching it! 🙂 Opps. Will try harder to be timely next time.
Completed for March:
See at least one sunrise per month
Yes, managed it for March – just!
Run a half-marathon race
My first USD paycheck arrived in March!
That leaves $3132 left to earn this year. I’ve been given three (or four?) more weeks work so hopefully by mid-May I’ll be perhaps another $1250 (+) closer…
Get a US driver’s license
I went for my first driving lesson last week, my first ever time driving on the wrong side of the road. I survived! My lesson was with Love Driving School who charged $50 an hour. This seemed quite excessive actually so I don’t think I’ll be going back to them. He also charges $100 to sponsor you for your driving test (i.e. provide car and person)… I recently made further enquiries and found a school that charges… wait for it… $158 to sponsor you for your driving test! Excuse me? What planet is this? (oh yeah, it’s America…)
Write a newspaper article, a short story and a book outline
No, but I did write a few narratives while we were in Australia – Sydney Morning Run is one of them.
Make a website/blog for me
This blog is going well – I have 21 subscribers! I find this amazing since I haven’t told anyone about the blog…? My best post for likes has been Australia Trip – Summary Part 1. I’m severely lacking in comments though. Something to work on for next month?
Also relevant this month:
I also want to:
- Watch the Boston Marathon (in person!)
I might have a problem with this…. My next set of work starts on 15th April — Marathon Monday! In the morning! SIGH.
How do you get people to comment on your posts? Suggestions please!
