Hope everyone’s holidays were super spectacular and that their New Year’s are the start of another amazing year!
Mine sure was! I was spoiled rotten this Christmas – gifted with many gift cards (for such places like Cineplex, Chapters, and H&M to name a few), many colourful socks (pictured right), TV show boxsets (Smallville final season, Will & Grace final season, Modern Family season 4), and also THIRTEEN Pop! Vinyl Figurines. Have you heard of those yet? I saw them and thought they were so cute and started figuring out who to buy which ones for… when I realized they may not appreciate them as much as I do. So I says to myself, I says, “Hogwash! I want my own collection!”
And that’s what I requested. I’d say thirteen new figurines is a good start to the collection! The photo isn’t that great, but you get the jist of it. I was thinking of maybe doing a photoshoot for each character and making a portfolio for them haha!
Now, this brings us to 2015!
I don’t have any New Year’s Resolutions this year, besides reading the book The Happiness Project written by Gretchen Rubin. I’m already a relatively happy guy – don’t get me wrong there! – but I really wanted to read through this book and try applying many of the interesting techniques and mindsets to boost my overall moral and productiveness. I’ve noticed I’m physically and spiritually drained most days, and alongside some exercise, I think this book will help get my head in the right mind-frame.
What does that mean for you guys? Well, the book is broken down by each month of the year, with each month dedicated to a different area in your life, or a different goal to achieve. That means I’ll be writing about my findings every month – a brief description of what was expected of me, what I was able to manage, where I struggled, what I liked, what I didn’t like, etc. etc.
Believe me, it’ll be much more interesting once we get into it!
If you want to, I’d encourage you to research the book and maybe buy it to try it out in your own life! Heck, you could even read it along with me and add your perspectives each month!
I’ve read most of the book in the past but never finished it, so this time I want to log my progress and involve your interaction, your ideas, and your experience. 😀
