Happy New Year! How did you celebrate the countdown? I rang in the New Year watching the final episode of the 6-part Korean sci-fi series The Silent Sea. Great premise, some very cool SF elements, and some memorable moments but it was a little slow at times. Overall, a worthy watch.
We commemorated New Year’s Eve in the Japanese way – with soba.
And ushered in the New Year with dumplings, ossechi, mikan and snapper (not pictured because Akemi deemed it too ugly for the photo op).
We also go our fortunes for 2022 – which, I’d argue, are more generic suggestions than actual prophecies.
I have decided to be a little more ambitious with my New Year’s resolutions this year. I will accomplish each of these on the daily:
Read 100 pages of a book.
Read a new comic book series.
Read a classic comic book.
Complete a Korean lesson.
Complete a Japanese lesson.
Do an hour of stock research.
Do a half hour cardio.
Watch an episode of a new show.
Complete some sort of writing-related task be it generating ideas, hammering out a story, reviewing a pitch or, hell, even actually writing something.
Compose a blog entry.
AND – watch two new movies a week.
So far, so good. But, in all fairness, it’s still early.
And you? Any resolutions you’ll try sticking to in the days ahead?
