January 2009


What a bloody hot week it has been down here in Western Victoria.  Looks like we will be nudging the 40 degree mark today, so after checking on the pets and watering the garden I’ve decided to spend the rest of the afternoon inside listening to some new tunes.

Time to cut back.

I’ve set a new goal for 2009.  One I think is doable, however one which is probably going to push my power of control to breaking point.

For the remainder of 2009, I am only allowed to purchase 1 game for either my DS, PSP, XBox 360, PS3 or Wii each month.  So in total 12 games for the year accross all platforms.

I know this is going to be a tough call as I have struggled to get it down to 1 game a fortnight over the past few years.

My last 2 purchases for 2008 were Fallout 3 for the Playstation 3 and The Last Remnant for the Xbox 360.  I’m hoping my preference for Role Playing Games may help me out a little due to the length of most of the games in this genre.

I have no idea what my January purchase will be as yet, time to start thinking I suppose.

Let the games game begin.

Just a quick post today wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

It wasn’t a very exciting New Years for me having to work well into the early hours of the morning, however it gave me time to reflect and focus on what my goals are for 2009.

So this evening in order to keep these goals on track I’ll be posting my 2009 New Years Resolutions on this site.

Update:  So my New Years Resolution for this year is 3 part.

First is that I have always wanted to give weight training a decent go, so I have purchased a home gym set up.  I suppose my goal here is not to look like the fool of a guy who has purchased gym equipment but never uses it.

Second is that I want to move house in the next 6 months and so want to complete the majority of my ‘100 Books…‘ list and really cull down some more of my physical possessions.

Finally, I would like a Pug.  I already keep, raise, show Cavies (Guinea Pigs), but I feel something is missing in my life and I think that a small dog such as a Pug can help fill that void.
