New Year's Resolutions

What a few weeks!  It’s been crammed full as a tin of sardines.  What with moving house, taking on another job, a trip to Norfolk on a creative retreat with the

OneTaste ladies, and what turned out to be a very expensive (this is what happens when you don’t check your train tickets!) visit up north to see the family, gigs, fun and lots of work.

Being this busy has certainly helped to

put into perspective what needs to be done next year.  December always seems to be a time of thinking about what the last 12 months has bought along the way.  So, this has lead me to think about some New Year’s resolutions.  Is it too early to think about New Year’s resolutions?  It is something I usually do 30 seconds before 12 o’clock midnight before the new year.


No, I’m going to say no, it’s not too early to think about it.

Often New Year’s resolutions are about what you will cease doing rather than what you will take on.  No, I will not be giving up drinking or smoking (well it won’t be a conscious decision if I do anyway).  I’ve decided I want to have more fun, see more live music and learn more!  Learning was never something I was very good at in my young age.  School, well it just wasn’t very me.  There were a couple of subjects I enjoyed but they tended to be more on the creative side of things.  It was something I never really enjoyed too much, that learning malarkey.  Then, it was on to the Brit School.  What can I say about that?  Generally it was finally finding something that I enjoyed doing, singing.  However, there really wasn’t much learning going on from my part yet an excessive amount of naughtiness in the park at lunchtime!

No wonder so many people turn to adult education.  It’s not been until I’ve reached my 28th year that I’ve finally found a hunger for taking in as much information as possible.  It’s really quite enlightening!  I think next year I have decided is a time for me to stop and listen more to other people and ask lots of questions about things that I’m intrigued about.  I’ve realised that as much as I love the sound of my own voice (those who know me I’m sure will concur!) I need to hear the voice of others that have something interesting to say!

And as far as having more fun and going to more gigs is concerned, hit me up if you have any awesome recommendations!

  1. Hey Debbie,

    If you’re looking for a decent gig to go to this week, then Gaz Coombes is well worth checking out on friday evening. The former Supergrass frontman has gone solo and is playing at Bush Hall. There’s a link on his home page to the Guardian site where you can stream his new album in full. You can get tickets from ticketweb.
