Hello 2017

Hello 2017. You are like a breath of fresh air. Welcome.


Here are some random thoughts and goings-on:

La La Land is one my new favorite movies. I just watched it for a second time today and it was even better this time around. Go see it immediately.

One of my new year’s resolutions is to eat more tacos. I’m considering ordering this to guide me along.

Thanks to the Bible Project, and their app, I read through the entire Bible in 2016. I fell behind about a quarter into the year, but that’s the beauty of being unemployed–you have lots of time on your hands for catching up. I’ll be embarking on this journey this year as well (though, hopefully, as an employed member of society). Join me!

Speaking of reading, in my attempt to return to my former life as a reader, I read twelve books in the last three months. Hoping to read at least twelve more this year.

I rearranged my room yesterday in honor of the new year and it’s amazing what a difference a little change like this can make.

I recently got contact lenses, thanks to an eye doctor friend of mine. I still plan on wearing my glasses the majority of the time, but it’s nice to have options.

I’m thinking about bringing hoop earrings back into my life, but there’s already a hoop in my nose. Is that too many hoops? There’s a lame “jumping through hoops” joke in there somewhere…

I’m going to be 29 very soon. The default next sentence would be “I feel so old.” But the truth is, I actually don’t. I remember when I was 15 years old, and I thought that 18 was SO old. My life would basically be over by the time I reached that age. And now here we are. And I feel young. And that’s good.

I’ll leave you with this:

Happy New Year!
