Wow! 2020 seems so far in the Future to me. I was born in 1981. I’m old but 38 isn’t really old, old. Still, it feels like things have changed a lot since I was a kid. I’ve traded my beeper for a cell phone. Actually I’ve traded a lot of things for my cell phone… A portable computer, calculator, encyclopedia, etc…
I prefer email over snail mail, is that even a thing anymore? I actually prefer email over talking to people, except with certain people who I know read every email as if the person writing is is being a snarky bitch. I mean sometimes people are, but most of the time I don’t think so. It’s just really hard to understand tone in a email or a text.
I love reading and I love that I can have a library in my pocket. I don’t love that I rely on a phone so much, but I do. I wonder in the future how they are going to make things smaller and more accessible. It already feels like there is almost to much information sometimes.
Anyway, this blog is supposed to be fun so I’ll save the other stuff for the new year!
New Years Plans!
We are cleaning this weekend and ice skating. On New years Eve we are bringing my daughter to meet a sloth. It was a birthday present and she can’t wait. For New Years Eve my sister comes over to watch the ball drop and then she heads home and we go to bed. New years day is going to be relaxing, maybe taking the Christmas stuff down and boxing it back up. That’s pretty much it.
I don’t usually stick to any resolutions so I am just planning what I would like to accomplish. This year I want to continue with my blog, writing and growing. I want to write my 7th grade book and my 8th grade book and publish those. Then I think I might stop that series unless it really starts to pick up. So far I have sold like 4 copies of the first book and nothing of the second book. I need to learn how to promote these.
For my family, we are planning a couple vacations. One to Pennsylvania in August so far and then I want to plan another one in June. I have no idea where yet.
I would love it if we could just plan on moving to San Diego this year too. That’s where we really want to be but a lot of things really need to fall into place. Like money, jobs… everything. We’re working on it.
How about you? What are your plans for the New Year? Do you make resolutions?
I hope everyone has a happy and safe new year celebration. Here’s to the future! Happy New Year!

I still want a real christmas card in the mail but for things like bills I would rather it come in email. Some changes are good but others not so much.
I’m born in ’81 and I don’t feel old. I mean, it’s been a while and phones have changed dramatically but I guess we’ll see a few more changes these next few years.:)
Have a Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to you too!
Good luck. Never too old to have a great 2020 – fir me this is the year the Beatles song comes along “when I am 64” and I do not think I am old.
I don’t feel old although also born in the 80s 🙂 In fact sometimes I feel like my brain is stuck in my twenties and I wonder where all the years have gone, lol. I love that pic of the emails and letters, so true, we used to get excited over emails but now we’re used to them. I have to admit I do miss snail mail as the only letters I get these days tend to be junk or bills I do love emailing people these days, it’s so instant but I also miss penpals, although today it just wouldnt work and feels creepy when people can see where you live on Google street view! Happy New Year and good luck with all that you do this coming year. I don’t make resolutions in the new year, I tend to do them more towards spring, if at all. 🙂
I don’t really do resolutions either, although I do a lot of planning and goal setting in January. It’s usually a quiet month 😊 Thanks for the post! Happy New Year!
Happy new year!! 🎊
