From Scrivener's Friday 5 blog comes the last entry for 2016.
1. What are you looking forward to in your personal life in 2017?
Increasing my income, a new job, strengthening and maintaining my friendships, definitely maintaining my health and perhaps traveling.
2. What's something you're planning ahead for?
If I have enough money, travel to the mainland in August 2017 to view the total eclipse of the sun.
3. How intense is your to-do list for the last days of the year?
Not very. Do the laundry. Pay bills. Clean. Routine stuff.
4. What's something you'd like to jump past, between now and the end of the year?
5. How will you ring in the new year?
Usually very quietly on New Year's Eve. I avoid any and all parties. I am not a wild celebratory type of person. I prefer to stay at home, observe the insane firecracker noise from the safety of my own place. I try not to drive on New Year's eve. Gotta avoid collisions with the drunk drivers.
Early the next morning as I have done for several years now, I go out and take a picture of the first sunrise of the new year.... rain or shine. If it is raining I take a picture of where the sun should come up and show the rain. I publish the photos to my Flickr photostream and other social media sites.
I will more than likely take my first walk of the new year by pushing it 3 miles that day.
After that I sometimes go to Don Quijote Store and watch them burst the fireworks and have the Chinese dragon people come over and make a lot of noise. Asians make a big deal of ringing in the New Year.
That's about it. Hope you all have a Happy New Year.
New Year's Day @ Don Quijote Store - 2013. For 2017 it is the Year of the Rooster.
