In 2016 I wrote this post on my pledges for 2016. Initially I thought I'd not really made much progress with them, but I've done some of the things I pledged.
#connect - I said I wanted to get to know people better at my new school. I've got to know my department well, and I go up to the staff room one breaktime a week. I think in the new year I should make a bit more of an effort with this, but it's a start.
#exercise - I started well with this one, I joined the gym when I moved into my flat. That's failed of late though and I've cancelled the membership. We are due to move in the new year and I have some plans for when that happens.
#notice - Ok, so this one I failed on. I was going to tweet positive things on a daily basis. I can't actually remember the last time I did this...
#learn - My learning pledge was related to my MA which I have now completed, thank goodness!
#volunteer - I've organised somethings in my department like I said I would, but now I'm second in department I don't think this counts as volunteerig anymore. Plus, I have been playing in the school jazz band but that is as much for myself as for the students so that doesn't count either. New ideas coming for 2017 though.
