Here are my New Year's resolutions which I posted on Bahraini Blogs!
Let's see if I manage to stick to at least one of them..ehem...those of you who know how much will power I have and how I can resist temptation will wonder where I got the courage to go public with this from:

New Year signifies new beginnings and New Year's resolutions are only made at moments of extreme optimism (or when you are high on a dose of hope for a better tomorrow) to be broken when the hangover wears off.

My New Year's resolutions are as follows:
1. I will continue being the person I am, the same opinionated Miss Know It All (Mrs Know It All, if you insist!).
2. I will continue to learn more and read more and meet more and more new people.
3. I will continue to work hard and party harder.
4. I will learn to prioritise. This means I will NOT give all my energy to my job because at the end of the day it is only a job...I will save the best for after working hours. This doesn't mean I don't intend to work hard. It just means I will have to learn to draw the line.
5. I will try and make more time for my family and friends - because they matter to me more than anything else.
6. I will refuse to be intimidated and will continue to speak (and also write) my mind - regardless of whether Bahrain is a democracy or not.
7. I will make more time for my better half...in fact, much much more time!
8. I will try to help as many people as I can - without asking for a return.
9. I will try and change the way I look by shedding the few kilos (15) I have amassed over the previous few years.
10. I will continue to fight for equality and justice in a world facing mounting difficulties understanding what those fundamental aspects of human rights mean!

This is a new entry:
11. Thanks to the threat of tsunamis...I guess I would also have to conquer my great fear of water and maybe, perhaps, attempt to learn to swim. I admit it is more laziness than fear.

DISCLAIMER: You all know I am bluffing.
I am weak. I don't have a strong will. I will put on more weight... and I will run away and hide, with my tail between my legs, at the slightest rebuke from any Tom, Dick or Harry.
