Thoughts on a New Year
I haven't gotten around to doing the list for 2016. I need to think some more; I figured I have until Monday to finalize. I would think that majority of those that were in my 2015 list need to be sustained - particularly those that were directly related to health issues such as setting certain targets for weight and health metrics. But maybe I should make more effort to relax more this year, and maybe do some traveling. Perhaps a trip to the USA is a good idea this year, eh?
I spent a great part of the first day of 2016 doing what I thought I should have done more of in 2015, which was 1) reading - I tried to catch up on my reading; 2) getting organized - I cleaned up the mountain of papers on my study desk and sorted through the stuff that I bring to work and school everyday; 3) and cleaning up my inboxes and PCs. I am bared halfway in all three priority areas, but I hope to at least get real headway before Monday, January 4.
Of course I checked my news feed in FB, although quite frankly, I got a bit flustered at the seemingly endless parade of buffet tables. Did we really stuff ourselves silly last night??? Apparently posting pictures of what people had for their media noche is the new normal although I must admit I may have inadvertently encouraged some people to do just that with my post on how a long-missed fruit from my childhood (a red bell-shaped fruit called tambis in Leyte) ended up as the most special item in our New Year fruit basket. Well, I truly hope the bountiful tables become portent of what is in store for all of us in 2016; may there be fewer hungry people in the year ahead.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
