Hey! Once again, I haven't blogged for a while. I hope you guys had a merry Christmukkah (christmas and hanukkah)! I can't believe it's almost 2012! 2011 was a rollercoaster for me. I had some ups and downs this year but overall, I think I did my best this year and I hope to keep progressing as I get older. I just came back from Vail, Colorado. I was really happy with myself because not only did I ski parallel (I actually started skiing parallel last year), I skied faster and better. Unfortunately, I was on this black and bumpy trail and I went so fast and couldn't control myself anymore that I fell downwards head first. It was really scary, but, don't worry! I'm fine now but I still have the bruise on my forehead! I had a helmet on which was good but it was a little loose so that may be one of the reasons I have a bruise. Anyway, that was really long so I'm going to tell you guys my New Years Resolutions.
1. Try to blog every other day- I have a very busy schedule but I'm going to try to blog every day, if not, every other day. A blog is like an electronic diary. Studies show people who write or blog frequently tend to write better than people who don't write or blog as much.
2. Read more- I love reading but sometimes I don't have the time to, which makes me sad. I like going into a bookstore and seeing new books on the shelves. Cuddling up on the couch with a book is always a great thing to do on the weekends after a busy week of work.
3. Get up earlier- Don't you just hate that feeling in the morning when you feel sluggish and can't get up? I do. In 2012, I will try my hardest to wake up between 7:15 and 7:30. Once I woke up at 8 AM and I was late for school (which starts at 8:05). That was really bad! Not only is this a good habit for me to establish, it is also a good habit for everyone else out there to establish.
4. Learn how to make creme brulee- Creme brulee is one of my favorite desserts. Every time I eat it, I always think to myself. How do I make this? It's just so good.
5. Visit South France- I went to Paris 3 years ago but I feel like that's not enough. I love traveling and I saw pictures of South France (Cannes, Nice, etc.) It was just so beautiful that I wanted to see it in person because seeing a place in person is so different from seeing in a photograph on Google images.
