Resolutions

Let’s review last year’s

New Years resolutions for 2016. 

1 better quality work especially for blog posts.

I don’t know how I did on this one, I did post less garbage but I also posted less. This is something I can keep in mind moving forward

2 stop casual cursing. It started in April it needs to end now.

I did well in the summer but it’s not great. I mean well and when I do it casually now it’s still less so another one to keep working on. I can’t curse at Disney and because I did it for work once I know I can do it again.

3 keep up with the people who care and let go if those who don’t (which plays into #4)

YES! I did a really good job here I went to Scotland and kept in touch with the people that not only cared about me but I cared about them.

4 soul search 2k16 .

http://www.wikihow.com/Find-Yourself

Not too good on this front but also I am really content right now have been for more than a week and that is something I didn’t know I could accomplish so even though i failed the wiki how version of a soul search I found myself and so that may be a win.

5 the obligatory health resolution. Eat better work out more sleep responsibly and drink water ect.

Yes, I drank my water and cooked for myself which involved buying my own food and not the junk. I played quidditch and though I could have worked out more I did a good job with what I did.

6 I had this one last year too but I don’t want to forget it. (Work in progress.) Be present when with people and don’t use your phone as an escape. When you are alone you’re really feeling it so don’t distance when with People.

I did very well but also my phone didn’t work for four months while I was abroad so it was even easier.

2017

This may be something I regret later but for now I am doing so well that I do not have any resolutions. I am starting a youtube sibling vlog with william my brother so posting weekly there and keeping this up while I work and try to find new things to do both work and entertainment is all I can think of needing.

Try to stay positive the way i am now. All i want is to want nothing is acheivable.

Dawns and eves

I hav. Been going to sleep rather early feeling very tired And then I tend to wake up early. I’m still on something of a London time but going back home the jet lag has me operating in regular hours so I’m not too concerned. 

It is Christmas Eve and I woke before dawn the anticipation of tonight’s party for my family and tomorrow’s family gathering that scream tradition without seeing if that is a precocial responce. 

I read an article yesterday about how coming home to the fully dynamic one grew up with can often trigger a regression of sorts. Being emotionally put back to the day things were for you as a teen. I can feel the regression in myself and I just want to move along. I have a job lined up some ways away and am eager for that to begin. 

  
Cheers to my friend and neighbor growing up Ewa(happy bday) and her daughter Della, seeing you twice a year is so little when you think about how we used to play together every day

Barcelona

Hopped on a bus and got to see the French country side on a very long journie from Paris to Spain

Got to Barcelona went to an amazing hostel called St. Christophers and would recommend it was less than $10 a night and free wifi and breakfast and a walking tour. I met some amazing people there too, definitely worth it. The first night I walked around and saw all these lights decorating the streets.

I went to park Guell and saw all the beautiful mosaic and whimsical architecture. It felt like living in a Dr. Suess book
  

Went to tapas and had loads of fun drinking wine sangria and eating loads of little amounts of food

                                Catacombs

There was amazing chalk art in Paris  

The catacombs came to be because the limestone had been dug out of the undergrounds of Paris to build cathedrals and such. The tunnels were left behind and inspected with this alpha numeric system. The initials of the inspector and the year

The bones were moved from many cemetaries all over the city that had been sent into disrepair. the bones could be relocated into this place that was otherwise just empty tunnels. This is the largest burial ground now  

The patterns were beautiful with all the skulls and femurs.

The stone could be mined quite far up and then it needed to be reinforced and form this bell shape up in the air.

I met Aaron Lopresti fresh off of Germany Comicon, he does the pencil sketches for the wonder women comics. We went to lunch together after the catacombs.
  

I finished that day with a museum of art that made ya think.
