I'm fully aware that this is of little importance to all of you, but to have it 'public' may well motivate me, and it at least serves as a reminder!
Anyway, as of this September I plan to make/maintain several life changes, including;
-joining a sports society, probably tennis or badminton, I'm open to all options there (I would do rugby but for my glasses, and I can't afford contacts (though I plan to find out if I'm right about that, as I'm going under assumption really)) -learning a martial art, probably karate as I know a place I can get cheap lessons, but I'd like to look into the options here too, perhaps aikido as I've been interested in that since being introduced to it through a friend -learning German, I've taken this as a module (additional to my 6 for this semester) but if it clashes with too much chemistry it may have to wait until another year -cooking more, I know a few recipes and can cook competently enough, but I'd really like to cook every meal I eat, cut out the frozen food entirely! -continue losing weight, this could be done through the sport/martial art but if they don't happen I'll join the gym in Cardiff to keep up my summer weight-loss/fitness-gain, 2 stone in a month/six weeks, hopefully down to around 15 stone by Christmas -continue to work hard on my course, preferably improve on my 77.5% average of last year, aiming for high 80's, low 90's if possible -continue to advance at the guitar, I've seen some real improvement and should hopefully be starting a band in September (Captain Mango and the Astro-Naughties, 60's-80's rock covers mostly, Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple etc) which should definitely help with that
-the last is a weird one, it's more for the sake of proving my own diligence, I'd like to find a topic, anything I can relate to chemistry, and perform my own study, my own meta-research into it and write up a 50+ page 'report' on that topic, one that crossed my mind was biological weaponry (anthrax in particular, due to an episode of Criminal Minds on recently). I'd basically like to prove to myself my ability to understand and compile information, as well as prove that I can work without being prompted, without any gain or motivation other than the desire to really understand something.
