It's the start of a new year, which is always a good time to review what we did with the previous 12 months.
Some people are more formalised with the start of a new year than others, often by way of to-do lists or resolutions proper. I've tended to be more casual about it as years go on, partially because I know how time-poor I can be.
But I did have one major objective (shared with Tegan) for the year: find a new place before the summer began. Around this time last year, I was living in a small apartment that didn't have aircon. Which is totally fine! It was a lovely place for years. But when the mercury rose, the heat was brutal. It was painful enough that I barely slept most nights in December, and we resolved to never go another summer again without a place that had some form of cooling.
A couple of weeks before going on holiday to Japan, we did precisely that. And life has been much improved since then (although our long-awaited NBN installation, which was originally scheduled for a couple of months after we moved in, was delayed to April-June of this year).
But going forward, I'd like to finish a lot more books than I did in 2017. I'd also like to be a little more organised with my personal time, if only so I can finish off a lot of the things that I enjoy but never seem to get around to finishing. (But that's really more of a work/life balance thing, too.)
What resolutions or goals did you set for 2017, and how did you go about completing them?
