First Month Review – January 2016

The first month of the year is over already. I know its not the best use of the blog space that wordpress has so generously provided to me and countless others like me to share a part of ourselves with the world, but, I am still going to use some bandwidth to write about the progress on my goals for the year that I very ambitiously put up on my blog. This is to hold myself accountable in the public domain, and believe it or not, its not easy. So, go easy on me for now, people 🙂

Read more books – I did manage to read four books as desired and am on my fifth, but frankly, I am a little disappointed with myself on this front. Here is a glimpse of my reading list –

  1. Daughter of Destiny
  2. Chronicles of a death foretold
  3. Animal Farm
  4. Many Lives Many Masters
  5. Crime and Punishment (Currently reading)

Watch more movies – I watched some good movies over this month. These were –

  1. The Machinist
  2. The Pianist
  3. Wings of Desire
  4. The usual Suspects
  5. Amelie
  6. The American Beauty
  7. Air Lift

Blog more often – This is my fourth post of the month! (Hurray for somehow managing to write these) But again, there is so much I want to write on. The initial wait and procrastination of switching on the laptop and starting to put your thoughts across is the major put off for me here. Any suggestions on how to drive yourself to put in words what you know and want to be known, are heartily welcome!

Travel more – January passed with me being in Delhi (home sweet home), Mumbai (the naval dockyard and Colaba stay), Dehradun (Wildlife Institute of India), Jim Corbett National Park (Field visit) and I am writing this from Gwalior. So, I guess, these count!?

Getting fit – I ran a grand total of three kilometres in the entire month. #EpicFail. I guess this is something that I am doing really bad at!

All in all, the books, movies and travel are giving me more than enough material to blog on and getting fit would just have to be more prioritised.

That’s all for now! Back to the year, marching ahead to a brand new month!
