Firstly, just to wish everyone a Happy New Year and all the very best for 2011. If you didn’t catch the fireworks display in Oz, you can watch it here. It looks amazing. However, I’ve never liked new years eve. Mainly because he whole countdown to another year has no real purpose other than being a great reason to have a few drinks and have a sing song. I have no problems with either of them though 🙂 I woke up this morning and wished one and all the very best for 2011 and lets hope it is better than the year gone by. Everyone I spoke to had serious hangovers, a sign of a good night.
Let’s face it, it hasn’t been that good. There has been almost daily negativity in the news, papers and internet in the last 12 months and it very hard to avoid it. Unless you lock yourself away in a room. I have a few demons to deal with myself. Not achieving goals I have set for myself, becoming too comfortable with what I have and worrying about meaningless things are a few. There is no clear direction. Resolutions are one thing but it is always good to have a direction of where you would like to be at the end of a year. Where I am now…I have been since 2007. Maybe these goals are pipe dreams and I should be aiming for something more reasonable. A promotion, finding a place of my own, widening my circle of friends, writing more music…these are the things that I am aiming for. However, I have a great fear that the end of 2011 will be exactly the same as the start of 2011 just like December 2010 held no change from January 2010.
Some may say “there’s no point writing a few lines about it, go out and do something about it!” and “stop feeling sorry for yourself” So be it.
