New Year, new challenges…

It all started so well. I embraced the New Year and my resolutions with great enthusiasm. This is going to be the year that I get everything that I want to get done, done! Well…maybe. The problem with getting everything done is that there are not enough hours in the day – funnily enough, a sudden increase in the standard 24 hours to a day did not come as part of the package for 2013.

So, what have I been doing? Let’s start with the positives, shall we?

Well, finally I did remodel my website to hopefully make it more user friendly – better language separation, fewer words, more direct. So that was one ticked off the list.

I have also succeeded in finishing a CPD self learning course on official documents and certificates, that had been languishing away lost in the depths of my computer since the last time I saw proper sunlight over the summer, all that time ago.

Another plan of mine this year is to get to the bottom of cryptic crosswords and to start doing more crosswords in Spanish, and Portuguese. I thought that this would be a fun and easy way to improve my vocabulary and give my brain some extra exercise. And it is going well. However, as I learnt last night, cryptic crosswords are not my brain’s favourite activity at 10pm after 7 hours interpreting that day. So that is something to keep in mind. One day I will be able to do them in my sleep, of course, but for now I am happy that I can answer the clues, albeit with a very furrowed brow.

So far so good, and I have even started translating the short story a friend of mine wrote. I only asked his permission in 2011, whilst living in Spain. Oh well, better late than never!

But what is not getting done? I still need to develop a system for regularly writing the blog and reading (my reading list is full to overflowing, with volumes added to it at a rate of knots that I cannot dream of keeping up with).

It is estimated that over half of world’s population experiences this problem, including young, free viagra on line old and strong adults. It is especially convenient form of Sildenafil jelly and is known as kamagra jelly levitra price or kamgra oral jelly. So, all is not lost. Work has returned with dizzying speed, cutting into my dear reading and crossword time (alas, retirement is a long way off), so I can only hope that this year work, play and self-improvement learn to live harmoniously together in the whirlwind called my life. And now I will be off, I must start planning that trip.
