When they first announced back in 2011 that there would be a new Tomb Raider reboot on the horizon, I was skeptical. Then when it was pegged as a video game adaptation, I was even more. Historically speaking, video game adaptations have flopped – drastically. So you can understand, possibly even relate to, my hesitancy when I decided to go and watch the new take on Friday evening. Then imagine my surprise when not only did I enjoy it, but thought it was AWESOME!
I absolutely hate that phrase. As soon as it hit 00:00 on 01/01/2017 my Facebook page was spammed with “New Year, new me! posts. But is it really?
Yes it’s a new year, but how exactly are you new? When you wake up on 1st January, you’re still exactly the same person as you were on 31st December, you just may have new resolutions/goals/aspirations that you want to complete. That in no way makes you new.
Alas, I like most have indeed set myself some 2017 goals. I call them ‘goals’ rather than resolutions as majority of them are numeric, and have a tangible result. Now these are things that need much consideration, so I decided to take the first week of the New Year to work out what I think I can achieve.
