It’s still early in the year so it’s still about fresh starts and I decided to share with the fyah family a few things that I am going to try. I started thinking about this post as things I want to try but then getting a tattoo got crossed off the list so I am left with things I am going to try.
1) Audio books.
I know, I know, there is nothing like the feel of a paper back and I enjoy browsing my personal library and remembering when I read certain books. I am attached to my books and DO NOT LEND them to anyone for fear of not getting them back. Fast forward to 2012 and I just don’t have the time to commit to reading and enjoying books like I used to. I keep buying books and haven’t gotten around to reading them and it makes me sad. A good friend of mine told me that he was in the same dilemma until he started audio books, you listen while doing chores, in the car, at the gym and he gets through a book a month. I haven’t read a book a month since forever and would be happy with a book every three months. I actually downloaded Ayaan Hersi Ali’s Infidel (another paperback that taunts me from my bookshelf) and I shall be loading it onto the phone tonight. I will let you know how it goes.
2) Agenda Keeping
Sounds simple right? Every year I get a brand new day planner and haul it around in my bag and it becomes a place where I stash bills and paper and random phone numbers and does nothing to help me organise my life. I’m really gonna try to check it daily and use it for reminders and meetings and birthdays and stuff.
3) Learn about caloric intake
