Retrospective: Reflecting back on 2016


When I first created this blog, one of my biggest goal was to improve in my creative writing.  To challenge my self to express my thoughts into words. Something that I don’t do to well. The toughest obstacles for me in 2016 is writer blocks, what should I write? What would be interesting enough to get my followers to read and to come back to my blog, plus attract other readers.

Happy New Year!! Hello 2016

Happy New Year my fellow Bloggers.  Hope everyone is doing great as we begin and welcome 2016. As with every new year it a opportunity to start fresh, set new goals, both personal and professional.  It a time to review the direction your life is going and decide whether you need to change course.  I feel that my life needs a course adjustment.  In the next 5 years,  I don’t want to be in the position that am in now: Living with my parents, not financially stable, still unemployed and don’t have a career set. So my goals for 2016 is to first find a job where I can begin working on a stable career that will lead to something better. From there I hope everything will fall into place, my financial situation and other personal goals. My next goal which is important is staying healthy, eating right, going to the gym and doing my morning walks.  As long as my weight doesn’t go up that a accomplishment.  If it goes down, that just awesome and currently my weight is at about 283lbs.  So will see what happen this year.  My other goals are as follow in no particular order:

  • Read at least 14 books or more. I read 7 in 2015, but I also start late in the year.
  • Continue with both my blogs, this one and my photo blog.  Hope to attract more followers and have better content.
  • Also continue with writing in my journal which I started at the beginning of December 2015.  At the same time practice drawing and maybe add other medium such as watercolor.
  • I would add traveling, but that not going to happen if I am unemployed, so no point on talking about that.  I will only dream and dream about it and hope the time come where I can travel the world.

What are you goals for 2016?

The last journal entry for 2015

Daily Prompt: Stroke of Midnight

Stroke of Midnight

Where were you last night at midnight? Would you have wanted to be somewhere else?

Last night I spent my last day, hour, minutes, and seconds of 2015 at home. I would not prefer to be at home, but most people I know celebrate New Year with beer which is not my style of celebrating. So New Year is just another day for me, but I don’t mind staying here at home, since I had a little furry friend to watch over.  She afraid of the firework sounds, so I stay near by her to keep her clam and just so she know that she is safe. Poor thing is so afraid of fireworks, her heart race so fast, her body shaking, and she trying to find a place in the house to hide from the sound of the neighbors firework. With 20 minutes left in 2015 I wrote my last entry of the year in Journal. Thought that would be a great way to end 2015.

If I didn’t have the responsibility of taking care of my little furry friend I wouldn’t mind being somewhere else.  I would love to travel the world on New Year and see how it is celebrated in other countries.  What do people do and is there certain cultural traditions they incorporate into their celebration.  Like for me and other Hispanic families, making menudo is a culture food that we make on New Year. It also a great soup to eat to help with the hang over from drinking. Some of the countries I would like to visit and celebrate New Years would be Australia, China, Japan.
