In 2011 I plan on studying psychology again. I have found a school in the area where I am going to live from February. I didn't talk to them yet, but I hope that there is no waiting list and that I will be able to start in the beginning of 2011. I would also like to study Russian, but so far I haven't found a school where that is possible. I have studied Russian on my own before. I downloaded a program where I am able to practice new words and expressions. It is very useful, but I would like to study at a school as well. What do you want to learn in 2011? Do do want to learn something new or improve your knowledge/skills in a subject that you already know quite well? If you had the time and the money to learn something that you have never tried before but always wanted to try, what would you choose? Why?

I would like to learn some foreign language in the upcoming year. I have heard learning some foriegn language is always good for a person. It always helps. Plus I use to play tennis. I have a plan to take training in some renowned institute for learn the game better and some special tricks and develop skills. I have a plan to tour somewhere in Europe and thats final as parents are confirmed about it.

Hi rafaelnadal! I also think that is a good idea to learn foreign languages, that is useful in many situations. I live in a small country and most people don't understand our local language, so it is nessesary to learn English and other languages if we want to communicate with the world around us. Good luck with your tennis, I hope that you will have lots of success with your plans Hi gunagohan! Thanks for the comment and good luck to you, too

In 2011, I would want to make more money online than what I made this year. The year is not over yet, so I can't really tell how much more I need to make in 2011. Two, I would want to do better at work. I want to improve my skills and knowledge I need to do a better job at work, and obviously earn more. I think I shall start with these two..

That sounds like a good plan. When the year is over the money that I have earned online during the year is one of the things that I think about. I try to figure out how to plan the next year and whether I should focus on the sites that I already use ot try to find new ways to earn money online. I would also like to earn money next year, as I know that I will have a lot of bills to pay next year.

I will definitely have more bills to play when my daughter starts school next year. I seriously do not know where the money is going to come from. But I shall have faith and go with the flow. I think I shall make a plan, like you..

Since I already studied the 3d softwares such as 3d max and Maya all I need to do right now is to enhance it hoping that next year would be my great year to start my job as 3d modeler or animator. I hope I can make it. Right now I am having my slow motivation in enhancing my skills since there are instructions that I can't follow even if I am repeating it for hundred times already. It is hard but then I wouldn't really want to give it up especially that I could see myself working on that pace. As of the moment maybe I would try some easy jobs or maybe it could be like data entry so that while doing my job here at home I am also doing and enhancing my skills in 3d. More so I need to be creative enough. I really want to follow my dreams.

I hope that your dreams about a job and as 3d modeler or animator will come true. It sounds that like something you really want to do and something that is important to you, so don't give up I recognize the things you write about low motivation and repeating the same thing so many times because it is hard, I have experienced that as well, but I think there is one positive thing about that kind of situations: When you finally learn how to do it you will appreciate it more, because you had to fight a lot for it, and it gives you a feeling of satisfaction.

Hi Porcospino!. I think I want to learn more about gardening and turn it into money. I think I will rent farm field and do my gardening project. I can do it with my mom and dad, they really love this activity. So this activity is something we can do together.

Good luck with your gardening project. I think it is great that you are able to do it with your parents and that are all interested in the same activity. In my family my mother is the only one who is interested in gardening. My father likes to read in the hammock in garden, but he is not interested in the work in the garden, so he leaves that to my mother. If I need advice about gardening I can always ask my mother, because she knows a lot about the topic.

I hope that you will get the chance to study HRM in 2011. Sometimes financial problems prevent us from doing the things that we would really like to, and I know that I would like to take more classes if I didn't have to worry about the money. I hope I can afford my psychology class in 2011, because I really want to continue studying that subject.

This year I want to learn basic survival skills, including skinning and tanning animals. There's ao much to learn, but I really do feel drawn to Mother Nature, and her stress-free yet challenging lifestyle. In the process, I hope to steer completely away from materialistic way of life and appreciate the simple things in life. Too often we have become so spoiled and greedy that we don't even know to survive without the instant this and automatic that. So that's how I plan to spend 2011 - learning Mother Nature's secrets :-)

That sounds like a good idea. I have had similar thoughts before, and I once wrote in my diary that I wanted to focos on the simple things, get away from the materialistic way of life and away from the "buy this or that and then you will be happy" attitude. That idea still appeals to me.

I would like to continue to study Japanese. My knowledge of the language is very limited at this point in time, but in years to come, I'd love to learn how to read Japanese characters, and maybe someday become fluent in the language. If I had the money, I would take professional classes, but as things are, I am trying to learn it on my own.

I share your interest in the Japanese language. I have studied Japanese in the past, but I am still a beginner. I took some Japanese classes about 10 years ago, and I started learning some of the Japanese characters. Today I don't remember much of it, because I haven't used it since that time, but I have thought about studying Japanese again one day. I don't have money for Japanese classes either, so studying the language on my own would probably be a more realistic option.

2011, I will learn how to make money better. In 2010, I have studied the basics. I just want more. Especially make money online. That's challenging for me. I don't wanna work in the office. I can hardly wake up in the morning and go home in the evening. That's big no no for me. That's why, I call year 2011 as the year of learning making money online. Hopefully I am lucky this year.

There are many advantages about online money making, and I think it is a good idea to learn more about this topic I started in 2008, I have tried different things and I have more experience now than I had in the beginning, but there are still things to learn. When we work online we have a different kind of freedom and I like you I like to work online instead of working in an office. I haven't given up my offline job, but I would like to do it if I were able to earn enough online.

Learning more about writing sounds like a great idea, it is one of the things that I would also like to do. I am too critical or negative sometimes. I have a notebook where I keep some of things that I haven't been able to finish yet, and maybe I will make it my goal to finish some of those things next year. Rignt now I don't have the time for it, but I hope I will be able to work on it next year. Good luck with your writing

good,this is a very good question,I want to study many thing in the past ,but I am not very good at anyone of I've ever learn, I want to be very good at oral english ,but there is no surroundings ,I want to study haker technique but I'm busy on my work and have little time for it. I want to learn how to accost a single girl but noone arround me can teach me . So I'm single now and have not date with any girl so far,I'm not the person that I wanna to be, sometimes I feel that I'm very frustrated. maybe I really need to change my character and mettle to start my life again.I think this is the most important thing for me in 2011!

Here on MyLot you can practice your written English, but it can be hard to find a chance to practice oral English if you don't have anyone to talk to in your surroundings. I have the same problem with Italian. I would like to pratice my Italian so that I don't forget everything, but I don't know any Italians in my country. I hope that your other wishes for your future will also come true and that you will find the right girl in 2011. Good luck with everything.

I hope that 2011 will be a good year for you and that you will be able to put some of the bad things behind you. 2010 has been both good and bad for me, some bad/sad things happened, but I hope that 2011 will be a good year without too many problems or sad things.

If you like travelling I think that hotel and tourism management is a good choice. I share you passion for travelling, and I once thought about finding a job in a travel agency or a at hotel, but I ended up choosing a different job (nursing) because I love to work with people. Yes, sometimes things don't turn out the way that we plan and we change direction because of something that suddenly happens. I have a goal book where I used to write down my goals about the future, when I read it now I can see that things didn't always go the way that I planned, but I try to be open and flexible when something unexpected happens.

Your plans for 2011 sound very interesting. You plan on visiting both Thailand and the Philippines, that is great. I am sure that you will learn a lot. Even if your goal is to learn about their cuisine, and I think that you will also learn a lot of other things about the culture and the way of living. In my opinion the chance to know a country and the culture better is one of the best things about travelling, and I hope that I will also manage to visit those countries one day

I am planning to learn how to cook this 2011. I am currently looking for some crash courses in cooking and see if I have a talent in culinary arts. If I enjoy the crash courses maybe I would take up culinary school. I also want to learn a new language next year. I already downloaded some crash courses on learning French but I haven't got the time to really practice it. Maybe I'll give it a try next year.

I can't cook, but I have thought about learning it one day. Taking a crash course is a good idea. You have to try it to find out if you enjoy it I have also downloaded a language course, not French but Russian. I try to learn new words and expressions sometimes, but as I have been busy with other things I haven't been able to spend as much time on it as I planned. It is one of my goals to spend more time on it next year and maybe sign up for a class as well (if I can find one)

I would also like to study French, so I share your goal about that. I have learned French in the past, but I haven't used it for years so I have forgotten most of it. I have studied German in the past, I don't use it every day, but I am still able to read German. Good luck with the languages and web design.

I want to learn how to drive, fix electrical stuffs, bake and so much more! 2011 will be the best year for me and I'm declaring it. I will be productive as much as I can next year and excel more on my career and ministry at church. I'm already preparing my funds to execute all of it. Driving is on the top pf my lists. I'm starting to drive now but I need more practice controlling the speed and the wheel so next year I'll be a pro and ready to take the road. Taking master's degree is also an option because I want to expand my horizon regarding my field and might try to venture new career that is related to it. I'm just excited because I know God has prepared something really great for me next year and I hope you guys will also have the same blessings that I'm praying. Happy mylotting!

Hi Porcospino, i want to go for Quality Assistance training, that is finding out the bugs in the tools. So that i can sit at home and do the job also. Since i have family obligation and i like and give more preference to the family than job, i preferred this studies now. May be next month onwards i may go. Leaning something is always good, you can improve your talent in that particular field and gain some knowledge/skills and also it is helpful to us and others too. All the best for your further studies. Have a good day.

Thank you, I look forward to continuing my studies in psychology. Good luck with your new project. There are many advantages about a job that you can do at home especially if you have a family to take care of. Yes, learning is a good thing. I love learning new things and improving the things I already know, and there are still lots of things that I would like to learn or try.
