New Year's Resolutions

So, that special time is upon us again, a new year, a new beginning. A time dedicated to both reminiscing about the past year and wondering what the future few months hold.

For some students New Year's is an exciting evening to get wasted and dance on the tables, for others it is a time to  be with close friends around a fire and for some it is a time to  exorcise all the sorrows of the past 12 months.
What a year 2012 has been for me. I made no resolutions and probably accomplished more than I have in any year before. I have been very lucky, meeting amazing people from around the world, accomplishing my propadeutic exam, getting a taste for travelling and even having my first experience in the Food Industry.
So 2013 is upon us, and as I saw in the New Year with close friends and a cup of tea, I couldn't help but wonder whether 2013 could possibly compare to its predecessor.
I made numerous resolutions, knowing darn well that if I completed one of them, it would be more than I ever did before. This year my resolutions have been less inclined towards succeeding as to surviving. My resolutions are as follows:

  1. Be less clumsy whilst working with e-coli - Hence preventing an inevitable Emma Epidemic.

  2. Avoid awkward situations with the police - Or, at least, convince them that I am not Sherlock Holmes' long lost granddaughter.

  3. Not to talk to repairmen about provocative knickers - Or at least learn to run faster.

  4.  Love my neighbour - Even if he is doing yoga in his underwear on my kitchen table.

It is a wonderful thing that my New Year's resolutions never succeed though... because life would be nowhere near as much fun if they did!
