Happy New Year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It was far too cold where I live to enjoy any outdoor festivities last night, so me and my family stayed INSIDE, with sparkling Gingerale, a wood burning fire, and an enthusiastic game of Whovilleopoly. Dad won—again—but that doesn't matter. The point is, we spent time as a family, and together we rang in a New Year.
Welcome, 2018. I've been waiting for you!
I don't always do great with resolutions (though, if you look back on my posts from 2017, you'll see my resolve to learn more about Canada went well!) But here are a few things that are important to me for 2018:
Write more letters. I have friends across the country (and even some from around the world) and instead of just emailing, I am going to try and write at least one letter a month. It’s the perfect way to start Letter Writing Week!
Read more books. I know, this is always on my list, and I did a bit better in 2017. But in 2018, I pledge to read at least 25 books. I'll try to remember to review them on the blog so you can see what I'm reading—and hold me accountable to my goal.
Start a new hobby. My mom says hobbies are important for personal growth (or something like that)—so I am going to spend the next week or so coming up with a new hobby. Something that won’t take too much time, but something really different. Any ideas?
I have some other resolutions too—like helping mom around the house more, spending more time with my sister, beating my personal running best, and writing at least three short stories.
What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
Gotta jet! Have a great day and a wonderful 2018!
