    To those looking to volunteer overseas:

    This article - Giving Back: A Special Report on Volunteer Vacations - provides a great breakdown of the dangers of voluntourism but also a list of organisations you can trust if you want to do legitimate good overseas.

    nerdasdasd, Crobat and Speed6 like this.
    Many a man and dynasty have we seen,
    That all quickly perished and expired;
    Many a mountaintop was surmounted,
    By men, who perished, yet the mountains remain

    Make something cool at home with my collection of electrics and motors.

    EDIT: lose weight to what I think is tangible to my situations.
    Did everything up here and instead of making something cool at home I made it outside of home at uni and took it to Melbourne and such.

    Overall I did all of these pretty well I guess. There's been a lot of bonuses on the side which I should have added to my resolutions then but I have acquired them any way regardless of my resolutions list being really crappy lol.

    Tbh I don't think I have a list for next year other than repeat what I am currently doing.

    Will add a proper list down later.

    I've seen someone do that in a group interview (they said they were going to go to South America to cook some simple foods for people there then come back after a few days) and it sounded really wanky. Of course they missed the fine details about how it was a planned holiday and really their holiday was not about the volunteering at all which was pretty obvious to everyone.

    And of course, the money the person spent on the travel there would have been better off being donated to the charity organising the event rather than taking yourself there and helping over something simple like that (there had to have been some sort of context).

    However there are a lot of really great voluntourist activities out there that do have a great benefit to others in that country which is brilliant.

    1) Do a bit of work in these summer holidays to redeem myself for that pass in one course in 2014 and get 75+ for the follow on course (2134) in semester one of 2015.

    2) Get a few things done for a project at uni next year. Try to win that award this time unlike 2014.

    3) Get to a fat level of less than 10% (need to lose another 8 kg I think and stay at something like 60 kg) and maintain that.

    4) Maintain about 60 kg by the end of next year for a while.

    5) Become a better soccer player in general next year. I think I should try out a bit of defensive mid again as I had a brilliant game last season there, some centre mid, attacking mid and the wing again in 2015.

    6) Become a better referee in general and maybe prepare to do a level 3 course in 2016.

    7) Maintain 75+ WAM.

    8) Go to church more regularly.

    9) Maintain my friendships and actually hang out with friends which is a bit of a mission nowadays with so many friends.

    10) Make sure I don't waste my time on superflous activities.

    11) Make sure I keep my licence. Have never encountered cops on the road and don't intend to any time soon.

    12) Find some sort of extra experience next year.

    Re: New years resolutions

    New years is my fav holiday <3

    For 2014, mine were the following:
    1. Be more optimistic (Not fully achieved so I will continue to work on it)
    2. Be more confident (Fully achieved!)
    3. Do well in school (Done, proven by grades)

    For 2015, my resolution is to have little regrets, specifically about year 12.

    Aside from these, I set both personal and school goals every quarter.
    Year 12 (2015) SACE Student: Maths Studies | Biology | Chemistry | Specialist Mathematics | Research Project
    ATAR Goal: 85+ | Uni Goal: BSc & Teaching @ University of Adelaide

    Re: New years resolutions

    I didn't have 2014 NYRs.

    2015 NYRs (I will try keep up with them):
    1. Study harder and procrastinate less
    2. Avoid gaming until the end of 2016
    3. Lose about 5 - 10kg (I want to be around 50 ~ 55kg after this year)
    4. Eat healthier foods and less junk foods, do a little exercise three times a week and sleep earlier (around 10:30PM - 11PM curfew)
    5. Love yourself, I have been hating my own body image and I need to learn to strike everything with confidence. Seriously.
    HSC 2015:
    Business Studies

    HSC 2016:
    English Advanced
    Mathematics Advanced // Mathematics Extension I
    Economics
    Physics

    ☑ ATAR Goal: 95+
    ☐ Transfer into Law/Commerce

    Re: New years resolutions

    1) Limit non-social gaming to max 5hrs per week.

    2) Continue running through out the year, but at a more balanced pace.

    3) Run a marathon successfully.

    4) Become more social - i.e. becoming a 'yes man'.

    5) Make sure history never repeats - no cramming, studying regularly and actually learning (HSC flashback).

    I'd like to see this post at the beginning of next year, and see how I went - always love a bit of self reflection!

    What were your 2014 resolutions and did you fulfill them?

    1. Lose some weight and get into better shape
    2. Be more involved in university (i.e. extracurricular activities, clubs, etc.)
    3. Be more involved in law school (i.e. continue to undertake competitions such as Mooting and Negotiation, find some legal experience, etc.)
    4. Hoping to get the transfer.
    5. Get my Ps already at some point.
    6. Hoping love finds me (because I can't find love~).
    7. Staying active on BoS.
    8. Play more sports somehow.
