I’m just kidding. I sound tougher than I feel.
New Years Day has come and gone. I spent several lovely days up in Whistler, including New Year’s Eve. The funny thing is we were doing the countdown with everyone else in the Village, and prior to the countdown there was the Fire and Ice show where there was flame dancing and athletes jumping through a fire hoop, doing tricks. Somehow, their program schedule went a bit overtime, meaning everyone at the show missed the countdown by about 30 seconds. ???
As with last year, when my boyfriend and I go up to his family cabin, we make an effort to try out new recipes! Here’s some from this trip:
We did eat out, but it wasn’t anything special. Just random places around the Village that we went into to hide from the cold.
Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? A thing I don’t like about having yearly resolutions is that almost every time, I see people (and myself) give up on a resolution because they messed up early on and don’t see the point in continuing anymore. I much rather have monthly goals, and that way, if I fail, I don’t feel like I need to wait another year.
Anyway, I do have some though, being caught up in the bandwagon of having resolutions and they’re:
- Do the 2016 Book Challenge (from Modern Mrs. Darcy’s blog)
- Read the books on my shelf that I have bought but haven’t read (works nicely with the above)
- Write a short story on Reddit’s r/nosleep (I’m obsessed with Creepypastas)
The book challenge is basically to read 12 books throughout the year. I’d love to get back into reading! I used to be able to demolish books daily, and now it takes me four months to finish a book. And that’s if I’m dedicated. I think these goals are pretty lax, but achievable. I guess we’ll see how I end up! I am done school now, so perhaps I’ll have more time to get back into my hobbies?
