It’s that time of year that everyone puts up their resolutions. I don’t really do resolutions, but I DO have some goals for this year:
1 - Study more Japanese (I want to get N3 on the new system! I got N3 on the old system back in 2007)
2 - Get my Japanese driver’s license (my international one expires at the end of March)
3 - Try (and learn to to cook) many more foods (armed with cookbooks!!!)
4 - Keep a regular blog about cooking (maybe Vlog once in a while)
5 - Pay off my credit cards (6k to go)
6 - Get something else published or at least have something ready for publication. This includes self-publishing on Etsy or as an e-book. Although it was small, getting published in that calendar was a good goal pusher!)
7 - Keep losing weight. My goal is to have a weight in the 135-145 range. I am currently at 169 (or, I was before I left for Xmas… I haven’t gotten back on a scale yet, but even if I gained weight it couldn’t be more than a couple pounds). I was 204 when I got to Japan and most of my weight loss thus far has been simply due to lifestyle changes and not concentrated effort, so I am confident that I can get at least the next 24 out of my body for a healthier me :)
8 - Learn a new skill. I don’t know what, but I want to grow every year and not just expanding on what I already know.
I always have goals because I feel lost without them. Anyone share some of the same goals as me or have experience/advice to give?
Truffles. The left side has oreo/cream cheese mix as a filling while the right side has a filling similar to that in a Reeses.
10 for my man, 10 for his parents, another 10 for the mail room, and the rest are gonna be divided among some people at work. Just my way of making sure they all think of me over winter vacation.
