-learn how to dance (nothing fancy, just normal human dancing lol)

This made me laugh out loud. I love it! :) Go you.

Wendy, I think you would laugh even harder if you saw me trying to dance.

7. finish a course on

I love Coursera so so much!

1. Travel someplace new (I've already started coming up with ideas on this one!).
2. Find a new job (both because I probably need to *high five, Lily!* and because I really want to).
3. Try yoga.
4. Run regularl-ish. Do that 5k.
5. Read more.
6. Pick up French again because COME ON, Gosia!
7. Less celebrity gossip, more news.
8. Less complaining, more positive thinking.
9. Be kinder.
10. Be a better friend.

1. Check! NYC :)
2. Check!
3. Check! Like it!
4. I haven't been running regularly but I have been working out on a regular basis. Semi-check?
5. Same-ish.
6. Check!
7. It could've been better still but check! (Okay, maybe not less gossip but I did follow more news.
8. Check, actually!
9 & 10 I don't really know. I hope so?

How did you guys do?

1. Start and finish a new course on Coursera (I have enrolled so that's a start)
2. Read all those books I bought last year and didn't have time to read.
3. Read more non-fiction.
4. Get more creative - let it all out: I gathered up all my Art materials from my parents at the weekend so now I have a ton of watercolour/pastel materials.
4. Learn to knit and/or crochet.
5. Forgive THAT person.
6. Move on.
7. Spend more time with my Parents and close friends.

1) Check and one on Edx. 2 I started and never finished. Whoops
2) fail. I always buy my books. Still some to read!
3) Check. That's mainly what I've read all year!
4a) Check. I did some crafty things. I drew and I even attempted a watercolour. Could do a lot more.
4b) Fail. No knitting or crochet.
5) Check. My thought processes and wellbeing are SO much better for it :)
6) Check! Totally. A move away. A move to a new church a move to a new home! A move in negative mindset! It was a challenging but good year.
7) Check. But more time with parents would be nice.

My goals:

1. Have upstairs bathroom remodeled. (We have a plumbing issue, so it's not just a cosmetic thing, we really HAVE to have it done.)

2. Continue to declutter.

3. See friends more often.

4. Travel somewhere out west.

HEY! I accomplished all my goals without realizing it!

1. We did have the upstairs bathroom remodeled in February. Our mysterious leak was identified and fixed. We also found out why the water never got very hot in the shower and that has been fixed, also. My new bathroom is lovely and I appreciate it every day.

2. I've decluttered quite a bit and it's nice.

3. I haven't seen friends very often, but more than the previous year. Recently got together with friends I haven't seen since high school.

4. I went to California on vacation. We went to Sequoia National Park and King's Canyon. They were very cool! Then we spent a couple days at Disneyland.

2. exercise. this time for real. bought the "30 day shred dvd" (it was only 6,99). starting today. told no one about it, though (until now). also, I found a ZUMBA course close to my new apartment. starting in February.

3. I tried (Farsi), but couldn't finish the course, half-check?
