So, I don’t typically do “New Year’s Resolutions” but this year I want to read more books and learn something new every day. I can’t even make it through a month of “Photo a Day Challenges” but honestly, I think this will be easier. I don’t have to product anything impressive, I don’t have to keep up the appearance of being interesting, I just have to learn.
So today, for January 1st 2016, I learned more about what happened in Pompeii in this BBC documentary. I love history and try to keep up with the “Stuff you Missed in History Class” and “British History” podcasts, so why not start the year with history. I imagine I’ll be learning a lot about history this year.
I also plan to read a lot more books this year – I’m starting Dune, Eats Shoots & Leaves and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenence – yes, all of them, though I won’t necessarily finish them at the same time.
