Thursday Tidbits – Happy New Year

January 7, 2016

I haven’t said it here yet so Happy New Year!

  1. Sorry I’ve been away, I spent New Year in Hong Kong with my sister-friend and kept having all these good intentions of blogging while there that never materialised.
  2. Yes, Hong Kong was fantastic, shiny, glitzy, and fun, we were already planning our return there before we came back. I’ll tell you all about it in an upcoming post.
  3. Wooosh, so 2016 huh? I want to know everything (that you are willing to share) What’s exciting you and what plans you have for this year.
  4. Many people have weight loss as one of their new year goals, I really enjoyed this piece, that captures the nuances many of which we miss when we talk about weight.
  5. I’m like the only one who hasn’t read this, but just incase you haven’t too- Akwaeke’s beautiful essay, ‘Who will claim you’.
  6. 50 years into the future what will surprise your grandkids – This was good, what do you think will surprise yours?
  7. Found this to be a beautiful read. Sigh.
  8. And this one to be quite chilling its on Pedophilia, as a sexual orientation- Will you let me know what you think?
  9. Can I just say, thank you for reading and sharing my blog last year, I love having you here and I hope 2016 we can really build a community here.

Love always,

    2016 hmmmmm! The year of change. The one where my life begins. So many good things aka marriages happening to the people around me. Hope I can attend all because they are all dear to me.

    For me, top most is getting a job. Independent living. Career and professional advancement. My goals are in hastags eg #IndependentLiving2016. I was on a natural high when I wrote my list.

    PS: I wish I could meet you in person and get a squishy hug too. 😀
