What are you chasing this year?

Want to get on top of my mental health, it's been f**king me up for a few years now and I'm pretty over it. Some career/life stability would be super.

Going to be getting married, so hopefully that all turns out okay.

The usual finally get in shape stuff. Related, would like to do a sub-3:30 marathon.

See if I can track down one of these Katayama shearlings. Some Guidi backzips too.

I want to keep living healthier, which basically means continuing to eat well and undertake regular, moderate exercise.

Workwise, I have taken on a new challenge which will be testing, but could be very rewarding if I am successful. Family-wise we're on the move again so a new town for everyone to settle into. I'm a little nervous but also very excited heading into 2018.

In no particular order

1. Drop the 20kgs I've put on over the last 3 years
2. Compete in the Taupo Cycle Challenge with my Dad
3. Stop being a generally miserable plum - I don't think I'm a real bastard to others, just unhappy with myself
4. Get down to Christchurch to see my oldest, best friend. Get over to Hong Kong to visit my other best friend
5. Buy/build a house
6. Focus on and grow the procurement and private job i.e. non-local government or company side of the business

Congrats :thumbup: (nice pimp coat, too)

A lot of those things are related. Strangely enough, mental health tends to improve with age — although it's not a reason for inaction about it.

Congrats saint. Have to say after not working a day last year I’m very much looking forward to retirement.

Goals for 2018 are to fix up my flat when I move to Edinburgh in June.
Get fit and lose 15kg
Visit a few new countries (road tripping Southern Africa so will do a few then at least)
Read 50 books (78 this year which is most I’ve ever read and loved it)
Learn to cook a few new things and eat healthy
Finish at least one cryptic crossword a week
Start learning Italian.

Congrats on the marriage news, I didn't know that and I think that's wicked.

The mental health issue is surprising, that day we spent 10 hours drinking pints you struck me as particularly well balanced :lol:

but on a serious note, and something for us all to note... mental health improves with fitness. If we look after our physical state our mental health will improve. Good luck with it mate.

And to everyone else... I hope we can all realise some semblance of relative happiness in our lives.

I've dropped nearly 20lbs in the last two months so will to continue with that good work.

I'm enjoying being back in education, having worked in a museum and at a university the last few years, but am make peanuts and so am hoping this experience gets me into a better paying gig that will allow me to clear the last of my student loans (could do now, actually) and start saving for a house.

If I end up back in my home region, some friends and I have talked about starting a coaching revolution to make ours the strongest in the province (at the youth level, anyway... job situation means a lot move away for school / as adults).

Not sure if it'll happen this year, but am also planning a tattoo sleeve.

1) Starting a new job in February, in theory it’s everything I’ve been looking for for the past few years, so need to work hard and make sure I impress early-on.

2) Use all of my holiday; have never used it all and could do with spending more time with Mrs J while we’re still in our decent earnings/pre-kids stage.

3) Get my black belt in Judo

4) Raise some money for a homeless charity and buy the Big Issue more often; it seems to be an increasing problem around here and it’d be good to do something to help rather than just moaning about beggars etc.

Probably will be a weird year with friends having babies and getting married. Have the idea of proposing in May but might not be the right time.

Want to travel some more. Have trips to South Africa, Morocco and Germany lined up for the first half of the year.

Get on the property ladder.

Cycle a 200km, and 3 other sportives during the year.

Working on a big-ish project in work due for presentation in October so it will be great to finish that up.

Finishing the project may mean the closing of an avenue in work, so hopefully will find a better role.

Should be easy.

Thats a fair whack of weight! Why 15kg?

Lost 10kg 2017, which was nice.

Whoosh? Maybe .... or maybe not.

If everyone was too cool for school and knowingly ignored Happyhooker's hopeful post, then he'd be a sad version of Happy. It would be like throwing a party where nobody came.

No, I say! The bored entered into the spirit of the festive season to deliver his punchline ... so now Happy's happy and everyone's happy. :nod: :thumbup: 8)

Do some exercise. Any exercise. My problem is I hate all forms of exercise where you are aware you're exercising. It's why rugby was great, you got through a shedload of work but it was a means to an end, not the be all and end all.

Not get so angry at things that don't matter.

Be more patient.

Turn over a new leaf on the job front and make the new one my own. May well involve relocating so exploring a new area would be up there. Get fitter, play more rugby. Seems relatively achievable.
