I’ve been a bit slow in posting this, but its kind of my new years targets for 2009! Basically I never really did much in 2008 so now its time for change. Below is a list of targets which I hope to achieve this year. Some are related to my websites, some related to swimming, and some related to my flying.

  • Pass the first (and hopefully the later stages) of the Etihad Cadet Pilot Scheme. First round of tests are down in Windsor in February. If I can do that, thenit’s up to them if they want to select me. The first stage consists of 6 tests, spread of six hours, so its going to be a big healty meal the night before, good nights sleep, and a good filling breakfast to set me up for the tests.No one knows for sure whats in these Etihad tests, butI’m assuming (i know, should never assume!) that there will be lots of mental maths, english, general knowlege and some logic or spacial awareness tests.
  • The last two months have been a record breaker in terms of earnings, its still no where near my £70,000 target, but its heading in hte right direction! So over the next few weeks, I hope to turn each of my “minisites” into proper good looking, usefull sites based around each of the topics which I have chosen already. Hopefully this will further increase my earnings from these sites, and if I wasn’t selected for the Etihad scheme, then I might be able to pay my own way through flying school.
  • Still going to work on my swimming, going to get a proper swimming wetsuit, and take part in more competitions during the summer. Also going to work lots on my butterfly, and underwater pushoffs and turns in the pool. Phelps better watch out!
  • Also going to travel more, be more sociable, and generally have more fun!

Thats all I can think of for now, but I’m sure I’ll think of more throughout the year! So adios for now, and I’ll go work on the first update on my minisites.
