It’s A New Year!


The new year is here and we have a fresh new canvas to fill up!

#. Infinity Pool: I’m setting the bar high this year. Infinity pool photos are seemingly everywhere and I’m determined to workout till summer and take a dip in one!

#. Splits: For the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing split stretches against the wall. Of course I’m closer to 90 degrees than I am to 180, but I figure I should get there in a year right?!

#. Travel Log: Can there be a slower travel log? I still need to write about my adventures in Venice and Rome but I seem to have gotten stuck at Switzerland. I believe I’ll do one last post to wrap up Switzerland and move on to Venice before I forget everything that happened.

#. Film Reviews: I probably watched over 50 films last year, but only posted a grand total of two reviews. This year I want to post at least 10 reviews, especially for the ones that are my all time favorites.

#. Read 5 Classic Books: Before I started taking literature classes in grad school, I had no interest in readings classics. They seemed to be long and boring and wasn’t there a movie? After having to read them for the sake of class participation and writing papers, I found that there were a lot of interesting themes to think about within the books. This year I won’t be taking any more literature classes, but I’d like to continue reading more classics.

Your turn ♥ What are some of your goals for the new year?

    I’ll be spending 2 weeks in Italy this year. I’d LOVE to hear about your experience in Venice and Rome.

      Oooh how exciting!! 2 weeks!! In that case I’ll have to get right to it! Do you know when you’ll be traveling there?

        Not until May/June. I’m fully expecting Italy to be packed with tourists by then, but I’m sure it will still be enjoyable. :)

          I think Italy is worth traveling to regardless of the hoards of people because there is so much to feast your eyes on!

    Ah, I’m pretty good at backlogging the places I visit too haha. I can’t wait to hear about Venice and Rome! I think splits are a gradual thing, I think you can do it within a year if you practice every day! I remember Blogilates having a video on that (she did it on the London Bridge) iirc, and I love how she didn’t care about passerbys haha.

      Hehe, I think I got stuck for a while there with the Switzerland posts, because mountains are hard to capture with words and I got unlucky with the weather :P I’ll have too look up the Blogilates video. Splits on the London Bridge sounds awesome lol

      Gotta start the new year with a bang right? ;)

    These all sound awesome, I love reading and it’s such a good idea to add in some classic books to my list. There’s a lot of goals I’ve been thinking about for this year, but one that comes to mind is really de-cluttering (physically, mentally, etc) so I can focus on what I really like and want without the distraction of a mess.

      Ahh, I need to declutter a bit myself too! I started to last month but got swept away by all the holiday cheer lol

    I agree with your statement number 5!! I also set a goal for how many books I wanted to read this year.

    anyway Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have many blessings in the year to come!!

      I should probably get started on it, but I haven’t been able to decide which book I want to start off with lol :P What kind of books do you enjoy reading?

    The infinity pool is such a good goal!!

      Hehe, I thought it would be more fun than just doing “more exercise” ;)
