First links to my previous logs, which have some resource links in them. I'm planning to create a second post in this topic where I list all the resources. Mostly for my benefit.

I've also managed to somehow convince myself I should learn Esperanto, although I have no actual reason why I should. But hey, why not huh, I've done stupider things (and regretted them).
On the 1st of January I got an email from myself from last year. I emailed my future self and asked me if I'd accomplished all the stuff I wanted to in 2015. Sadly I'd only done about 50%, but it is better than nothing. If you're interested in emailing your future self with encouragement or questions, you can do it at Future Me. A nifty free service which stores your email and sends it to you on a date in the future you select. I'd actually forgotten I'd done it. Enough of that, lets start with my goals for this year 2016 by language.
- Mandarin: A2 or low B1 by the end of the year. (no challenges for Mandarin, just studying)
- Italian: Output Challenge for 2016, start full Super Challenge in Italian and try to reach C1 level if possible.
- French: start full Super Challenge in French and try to reach C1 level if possible. (I haven't listed French as TAC although I'm part of Les Voyageurs)
- Esperanto: TAC in Esperanto and try to attend some kind of Esperanto/Polygot event near Oct/Nov time in UK or Europe and "try my arm" at Esperanto.
Plan to participate in the 6WC for Esperanto a couple of times. Hopefully that will get me going.
Just to make sure I'm not bored this year, I've also decided to lose weight and run another marathon.
