Time sure does fly. 2017 went by faster than I could believe, and before I knew it, it was time to get back to work.
I basically spent the first day of 2018 relaxing at home. But I did get to spend New Year’s Eve with my family, watching one of those countdown TV specials for a little while before heading out for some food and drinks with friends (I gave up on the TV show…too many commercials!).
This is something you may not have seen before. We call it a “brazier grill.” It gets pretty cold in the southern part of China during the winter. In the old days, there were very few forms of artificial heat, so we would use braziers like this to stay warm—and cook food while we’re at it!
Okay, back on track now…on the first day of 2018, I got up at about 10 am, checked my messages and social media accounts, then had lunch.
I spent the afternoon relaxing and watching a movie…before I knew it, it was time for dinner! I started to get anxious about the holidays coming and going—it feels like I’ve wasted them doing nothing!
So, in the last few hours of the day, I sat down to write out my to-do list for 2018.
My New Year’s Resolutions:
- Read 15 books.
- Watch 20 movies.
- Lose 10 pounds.
- Learn how to play guitar/ukulele.
- Run regularly (at least once a week).
- Travel to a foreign country.
- Receive an outstanding performance review at work.
After writing down my plan, I immediately went out for a 40-minute run, which felt great! I just know that making progress on the other items on my list is going to be very rewarding as well.
