My reading list target was to finish atleast 10 books (with an
additional 1 that got added to the list along the way) during the
year which are pretty much a mix and match of different genres.
This continues to be on the top of my to do list given my attempt
to disconnect from the tube and do things I used to enjoy..The
reads primarily are ranging from
1)The Devils Deal(Andreas Loizou),
2)Skinny Bitch(Rory Freedman and Kim Barnonuin),
3)Banker to the poor(Mohammed Yunus),
5)Embroideries( Marjan Satrapi),
7)Intelligent M&A (Scott Moeller),
I am happy to report that I have officially finished the first 6 on the list with the balance in the working.
2.Travel to a country never visited – fingers crossed
3.Finish a second half marathon just to prove it to myself that the first one may have been luck but the second was definitely worth the sweat it took to finish off ( I should be signing up for the 2nd was this November)
4.Declutter to unneeded things from my cupboard and room – This seems to have pretty much got accomplished over the last 1 month.
5.Maintain my early morning workout regime – after a back log of not regularly working out during the summer, I seem to be slowly getting back into track with the early morning sweat out sessions
6.Spend more time writing – I want to dedicate more serious time to this hobby in addition to my freelancing writing status with the the Bazaar Magazine.
7.Pray more – work in progress
8.Finish trying all of Rachel Khoo’s recipe from the cook book I ordered earlier in the summer – Tried 2 recipes successfully, 80 more to go :)
9.Drive more consciously and leave ahead of time to reach my destination– Am working on it J
10.Sky dive – Fingers crossed J
