Our letter topic for this week is to make a "New Year linky".
Therefore I make a linky from 2010 to 2011, which in any case I can't avoid as worldwide the year will change as we all use the Gregorian calendar. If I would use the Hebrew calender I would be now in the year of 5700 and something, which makes me older while the Islamic year is now in 1400 and something. Honnestly I am too lazy to calculate my age and keep the one I have in my passport.
Since I started blogging I heard for the first time that people make "New Year's resolutions". Not used to this costum I had looked in Wikipedia which always helps me to get more and more instructed and wiser. Soon you can call me Wikipedia II. So I learned that :
"A New Year's resolution "is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or the reforming of a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The name comes from the fact that these commitments normally go into effect on New Year's Day."
The problem with me is, I don't know what kind of resolutions I could make ! I don't want to reform my habits or my lifestyle, I had 50 years of time to do that.
The things I should improve are :
Improve health: loose weight, exercise more, eat better, drink less alcohol, quit smoking.
Fortunately I have no health or weight problems, I don't drink alcohol, I eat nothing greasy, and I pretend that I don't smoke.
Improve finances: get out of debt, save money. I never had debts and am happy with my finances.
Improve career: get a better job. I now got the best job ever, I am retired !
Improve education: improve grades, get a better education, learn something new (such as a foreign language or music) Nothing to improve (besides learning Wikipedia by heart) not even learning languages I think 4 are enough and music I don't want to learn but listen.
Improve self: become more organized, reduce stress, be less grumpy, manage time, be more independent. Grumpy I don't know (ask Mr. G.) for sure I am organized and more independent as I am is impossible. I can't reduce stress, because I am never stressed. I am angry or furious.
Take a trip, to where or with what ? My travel planning is full
The only thing which will change my life is the fact that I became a grandma for the first time in November, but for that I don't have to make any resolutions !
In fact this is a new job !
To all of you !
