As you probably know, although I'm one of the old members here (5 years+), I didn't spend that much time on GameSpot as I used to in 2007/8. Still I regularly come back here to wish all of my old friends a happy and joyful new year with no worries and lots of love. As we are getting closer to the very end of this year I would like to do a small review of 2010.
2010 was a fun year for me. A lot of new things happened as I grew older. First of all, I started getting busy with things that are outside of the regular school curriculum and are absolutely amazing. Here I would like to stress out the biggest activity that would mark this year for me, debate. Yes, this year was all about debating, regional, national and international competitions for me. I got the knowledge from some of the best teachers in an organization called the "Youth Educational Forum". With the efforts that I made regarding this activity I managed to qualify in one of the most famous debate tournaments IDEA Youth Forum 2010, where I learned even a lot more, and made hundrets of friends.
As for the social life, it may have blacked out for the last couple of months, probably cause I haven't had a chance to just breathe from all the obligations at school and the obligations that I give myself deliberately. Still, I have a few friends who mean the world to me and although I may not be with them as often as I used to, I am still glad that they are standing by my side. I am with the same girlfriend for like two years (in Feb. '11) and I can say I am happy about it.
Now let's move on and discuss the goals I gave myself last year and see which of them are achieved, which are not as much, and which of them should be transferred to the 2011 goals list.
Get better in school (achieved)
I feel like I managed to do this and convert from someone who didn't use to give a damn about a grade and felt like school is not his field of interest, I am now good at this, have (even better than) average grades and most importantly, I am beloved by the teachers :)More success in competitions (achieved; transferred)
I definitely achieved this. I got the 1st place on a national biology and on a national debating competition. Although completed, this goal is transferred to 2011 since I just began to realize how much important it is to me.
More new friends and no fight with the ones I already have (achieved)
More leisure time (generally not achieved, transferred)
A bit more money (this was written just before the economical crysis came :) ; transferred )
So my final list of goals for the year of 2011 would look like this:
1)More success in competitions
2)More leisure time
3)A bit more money
4) Fluent speaking of the German language and pass on the examination that awaits me in Dec. '11
What are your goals for 2011 guys? Write them down as comments.
