My 2010 "resolutions"...and then some

So the new year is here! I'm a bit late (as per usual) with adding my flavour to the mix of all the new year rants and resolutions. Bring on 2010 and whatnot and so forth.

Happy New Year to you all. I wish you a year filled with love, opportunity and adventure. Just what I would hope for myself :)

I don't have any distinct resolutions, I don't find it necessary to wait until a new year begins to decide what I want to change about myself and/or add to my roster of things to do. HOWEVER, I will say that I am going on crazy ass cooking and health rant this year. So when I blog about what I'm cooking and what I'm currently salivating over, don't wonder if someone else took over my shit. It's me. Julie and Julia style, sorta. Not really. But I am expanding my horizons regarding my previously expressed (http://bit.ly/4Evsga) love for food. 

I'll be going to restaurants and sampling dishes from every culture (though I've already ruled out sushi thanks to Benihana. Ugh!). I'll be cooking (gasp!) and I'll also be posting some recipes I tried that blew my mind for you guys and gals to sample.

But I'm not going full fucking Betty Crocker on you guys. *Says "but wait there's more!" in advertiser voice* I'm also going to be (drumroll please) leaving Trinidad and Tobago for the first time! Yay me. No set plans yet, I'm actually going to renew my passport this week (or next) so I can get the ball rolling. 

Desired destinations: Jamaica, Japan, NY and Barbados. Now, I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to do that yet considering my bank acct balance is $0.00 and my pockets match that BUT, where there's a will there's a way! Right? Hopefully. Maybe I'll just keep playing the lottery just in case.

So from Barbados, Jamaica, Japan (DYING to go!) and NY, I'll be bringing you the goods in video, pics and blogs. You're practically travelling in my tote. It's something I always wanted to do but never thought I'd have the means to do anytime soon. But I'm going to make my means possible and update you as I go along.

I also need to blog a lot more this time around. And do some videos so you can actually put a face to the crazy person. Before, my issue was not having a laptop and having limited internet access, NOW my issue is that I have a laptop and no time to really use it outside of work. That's one lousy aspect of journalism. Doesn't give you time for much else. But I need to make the time because I find myself feeling like I could just yank all my hair out when I can't write in my style and say what I really want to say. So I will now. At least twice a week.

Other plan: Get a fucking car!!! About damn time. Well first I need to get my driver's license so I could drive legally (yawn) then I could move on to the car part. Oh these rules of society! I can't wait to have my own little gas guzzler and beg friends for contributions to foot the bill to the beach. Ah yes, I can see it now.

My dream car, since I've always loved jeeps and old model cars, is a Suziki Jimny. Also known as the Suzuki SJ, Suzuki Samurai, Sierra and Holden Drover. I absolutely <3 it. Can just see myself in one. Picture it...

And then picture me in it...

I know right? Sigh. Dream come true. When I get it you'll see how I actually look in my jeep in case you don't have my amazing foresight.

Well, that's it for now folks! Until I blog about cooking later this week that is! *wink* So, in the mean time between time, I have work to do so later!

Your 2010 globe trekker to be,
