2016 Challenge

PopSugarI already have a hunch that 2016 is going to be a great year. I’m taking a pottery class (anybody in the market for dishware!?), planning a move back to Chicago in February, and taking on a new reading challenge! Popsugar once again put together a list of categories to tackle this year, which I love, and I’m upping my goal to 20.

This year I had three family members pick 5 categories each for me to read. I picked 5 myself, as well.

  1. An autobiography
  2. A book guaranteed to bring you joy
  3. A book about an unfamiliar culture
  4. A murder mystery
  5. A book recommended by a family member
  6. A book set in Europe
  7. A book written by a comedian
  8. A book you can finish in a day
  9. A book that takes place during summer
  10. A book with a blue cover
  11. A book translated to English
  12. A book recommended by someone you just met
  13. The first book you see in a bookstore
  14. A science-fiction novel
  15. A book that takes place on an island
  16. A class from the 20th century
  17. A book becoming a movie this year
  18. A National Book Award Winner
  19. A book set in your home state
  20. A self-improvement book

Here we go.

New Year, New Resolutions!

It’s December 31st already? Every year seems to fly by, particularly when you’re at the end of it looking back. 2014 turned out to be a pretty great year, all things considered. I made a lot of changes that I wanted to make, and learned so many new things. There were plenty of ups and downs but here I am! I made it!

Last year I made a few simple, realistic and attainable resolutions for 2014 that were important to me, and stuck to them. I’m hoping to do the same for 2015, so why not kick things right off with the first challenge!
