I’ve spent the past 7 days on an exciting road trip from Wellington up north along the beautiful east coast. Finally, I’ve ended up in Auckland where I’m sitting right now on New Year’s Eve. I’ve got a bit of time to think about the year that has passed and the one that is to come. As my plans are to go back to Germany in just a few weeks I want to make sure that everything I have learned and experienced this year won’t be forgotten by my future self. I’m therefore setting myself a few goals, some that I can really measure at the end of next year.
Travel more: Visit 3 countries I haven’t been to before.
Learn more: Start learning Spanish to the point where I’m able to have a casual pub conversation. Pick up my French from school and improve it so I’ll be able to have a fluent conversation and watch a French movie without subtitles.
Read more: Finish at least 2 books a month.
Start something: Have a software project of my own or with friends put the first euro into my account.
Let’s see how all of that works out. 2013, I am ready.
