2011 Note to Self

Well, I've looked back, now it's time to look forward before I have so much to drink on NYE that I forget what I'm looking forward to.
What do I want to do?

1) Learn to drive, yes, at 36 I'm not a driver, never really wanted to and really still don't but it's a useful sin.
2) Sunderland Uni - Brewer course. Why the f**k not? I enjoy brewing.
3) Brew some more.
4) I'm organising at least 3 beer festivals this year possibly more, hard work but watching them unfold into a good time is like watching a child say it's first word or watching someone enjoy your beer as much as you do!
5) Find interesting new ways of expanding the craft beer revolution. Very fucking vague but in all seriousness we need to start really shouting about how exciting beer is. I have some ideas, I WILL need your help.

I think 5 things is enough to be going on with, after all most of them are pretty time consuming!

Good luck to us all for 2011. Some will need it more than others, especially if I learn to drive ;-)

Good list! I think 2011 is going to be a good year for beer! Those Sunderland Uni courses sound quite good and tempting... And number 5? HELL YEAH!

Cheers for that Mark!

Good stuff. Just drop the "grow the **** up" plan...

I hear growing up is overrated. Don't worry about it... ;-)

Can we have updates on when and where you'll be swerving... sorry I mean learning to drive.

@Pub Diaries - Hell No! it's survival of the fittest - might be purposely mowing down a few chavs in the name of 'cleansing the gene pool'. ;-)

Don't bother with learning to drive. Massively over-rated. By using public transport, you get to see all the dropped stitches in life's rich tapestry. And you get to drink more beer.

Glad to see I'm not the only over 35er that doesn't drive. Unfortunately I have to start. I agree with Scooper though, it's nice to be able to relax and watch the world go by on bus or train, and never be the designated driver :)

Do people still say "craft beer revolution" un-ironically?
