My New Year's Resolutions

It's that time of the year again! Now, I haven't made new year's resolutions in about 15 years. Mostly because I never ever stick to them. This year, though, things are different. I have two resolutions: To learn to drive and to continue some of my features from last year.

Learn to drive
Well, I finally got a provisional driving license... in February. Since then, my hours of driving tuition are clocking up at, erm, zero. Yep, I have never even sat behind a steering wheel. However, I currently commute for four hours a day. Yep. It's pretty tiring. If I were to drive to work, I'd reduce that to 90 minutes. This month, I'm buying my friend's car. The plan is that I'll have this car just sitting there doing nothing and it will motivate me to learn at long last.

Resurrect features
I loved some of my regular features but, as work and norovirus took over, they fell by the wayside. However, as of this month, I'm bringing back my A-Z of Becky and Friday Favourites posts. I'm also going to add a monthly review of the progress I've made towards my 101 in 1001 list.

What are your resolutions this year?

  1. I've also got a provisional, yet have never sat behind the wheel of a car! I hope you do learn to drive, it's such a freedom (I imagine...), even if it looks scary as hell!

    Love, Lauren

  2. Dude! I learned to drive when I was 23 years old and being a mature (or more mature than a 16 year old) adult helped me a great deal. I was way more prepared to be behind the wheel. And, the more I drove, the less scary it got. I wrote a post back in November about how liberating it was to drive four hours to the closest city for work. It was the first time I had done anything like that all by myself. I was terrified, but I did it. I survived snow and ice and highway driving and afterwards, I felt AMAZING. I felt like I had conquered the world.

    You can totally do it and you can feel just as amazing after the first time you drive yourself to work, saving yourself hours of commuting!

    Good luck to you. I know you can do it.

    1. I hope that being 24 will make it easier to learn than if I were 17. I just need to think of how liberating it will be.

  4. I've had my provisional for years! I've had a couple lessons but nothing official! One of my goals is to at least start lessons!

  5. Your two very measurable resolutions sound way more realistic and achievable than the usual crazy volume of immeasurable ones you see flying about the blogosphere. I only finally learned to drive a few years ago when faced with a similar commute to yours. Needs must as they say :) Looking forward to the return of your features too. Happy New Yr!

  6. i don;t know what i would do without my car, but then my sisiter has never driven and she gets by, i guess its a case of not missing what you never had...

  7. Hahaha I have had my license since January 2011 an after that I only drove like 6 or 7 times. Had so much trouble driving a regular car (and not the one they teach you in) that it scared me. :'( I'm hoping that I will be able to drive this year though. So good luck to us both. ;)
