Knock knock! It is the New Year!
Specifically, 2018. Gosh, how time flies when you are having fun or not having fun. We can’t always have fun. Who said that? Life. But what we can do is hope.
2017 was amazing! There was snow, lots of it and then it was hot, like really really hot. There was friends, family and fun. Flew across America twice! I saw the Grand Canyons and cried a little. I studied hard, worked even harder. It was almost perfect. Here’s hoping 2018 would be better!
Hope is what I am bringing into 2018. No more “I want” or “I should” and more of “I must.” “I must” just makes it all very unavoidable, doesn’t it?
So here is a list of “I must” that I have compiled.
Writing has been a passion of mine ever since I could remember. Writing for me is like talking, but with more freedom. I can’t talk about how I would love these two characters from two different fictional worlds to get together and fight evil out in public without sounding like a lunatic. However, I can write them out.
I love cooking. I just don’t like people watching me cook. The pressure is unbearable. Cooking for me is therapeutic. I just am in the zone when I cook. If you disagree, it means you have seen me cook. In which case, read the second line from this paragraph again. After years of watching my father and aunt cook, I am convinced that the genes have indeed been passed down to me.
I already regret writing that down. Honestly, if there is a a way for me to remain healthy without exercise, I would do it. Exercise is probably one of the things I avoid like that spider up on the wall. “It does not exist, it is not there!” But hey, I am another year older. So, time to suck it up (literally), and get my a** to the gym or yoga mat!
I know, that was cheating. “Get out there” can mean many things really. For me, it is about being brave and having the courage to do things that I would not do in a million years. For example, watch that horror movie and have nightmares for a week, go for a sports game, learn a sport etc.
*opens the door* Hello, 2018! Come in, I have been expecting you!
