Latest Updates
Monday, December 29, 2008
So with this being my last chance to blog in 2008 I'm going to write here my NY resolutions. When the clock strikes midnight I will be up in the air operating a Scarebus back from London Gatwick. I don't really have plans, the mates I do have in London town can't be arsed trekking to the hotel to see me, and on New Years Eve I'm not even going to risk leaving the vicinity for fear of being stuck in traffic, or at a tube station in the city. Gonna do my Marks and Spencer run and that's it methinks.

So, resolutions for 2009. My list is as follows -
  1. Shop for a property. I have the money for a decent mortgage, and I guess with the financial crisis making it difficult to get one at the moment, all I can do at the moment is to sit tight, and save, and buy when things start moving up again. Also keeping an eye on things at home.
  2. Go one year without a sick day or absent at work. I would like to get SFS before I leave the company, and ever since I got my First Class upgrade things haven't been going too well between me and my manager.
  3. Visit a country I've never been to before. At the moment the front runners are Iceland, Turkey (although the rumours that it's going to be a layover soon are too loud to ignore), or a Lithuania/Estonia/Latvia supa-mega holiday extravaganza. I also wouldn't mind exploring more of South America, with both Easter Island and the Galapagos Islands on my must-do list, but may save those two for retirement :-P
  4. Write more blog posts. It's getting harder to be honest, because most destinations I fly to I've been already, and I've no desire to go sightseeing again. But all sorts of things happen in-flight, and you guys are usually the first to hear about the day's dramas.
  5. GET MY DRIVERS LICENSE! This is a must-do for 2009, more so than the other resolutions combined. The first and only time I went for my test was in 2001, and a roundabout ended up worse for wear as a result, but it's been 8 years now and I've been putting it off for long enough. No more excuses.
I hope everyone has a great New Years, I'm gonna have a ball serving the minted Brits glasses of Dom and spoonfuls of caviar. Believe it or not I've never attended a NYE party! Being in the air doesn't seem too bad to be honest, at least everyone should be in a good mood :-)
