Since my journal is on secret mode... here are my answers:

Do you make New Year's resolutions? I used to, but I don't anymore. My in general, overall resolution is to always be a better version of myself or at least the best that I can be in a given situation. This definitely doesn't always happen :x
Are you expecting any big life changes this year? (new job, buying a house, etc.) Well as much as I'd LOVE to buy a new/used car, I still can't afford that. I am however going back to school and I start Jan. 23!!! Small baby steps here!
What are you most looking forward to this year? Honestly, right now it would be The Iditarod which starts in 56 days and some odd hours/minutes/seconds!!!!
What are you least looking forward to this year?Knowing that my fibro will always be fibro.
Is there anything you want to try this year that you haven't tried before? (could be a new food, new hobby, or anything.)I want to try to just get out of the house more. Even if that means having dinner alone or seeing a movie alone.

1. Do you make New Year's resolutions? Some years. They rarely actually outlast New Year's Day, however...

2. Are you expecting any big life changes this year? (new job, buying a house, etc.) We want to do some serious renovations. Oh, and going on to a four-day week sometime in the first few months of the year (it takes more organising than I thought)

3. What are you most looking forward to this year? Mondays, once I get the four day week into place :)

4. What are you least looking forward to this year? Tuesdays, once I get the four day week into place (so okay, there is probably going to be worse things happen to me in 2017, but as of this week -? ignorance is definitely bliss).

5. Is there anything you want to try this year that you haven't tried before? (could be a new food, new hobby, or anything.) Not as such, but there are several things I have done in the past that I may take up again...on Mondays :)

My LJ is locked down as well.


Kinda. I have been inspired by an LJ friend to do a 17 in 17 list. I think I did a 15 in 15 and totally fell off the horse. Hoping to do better with this one. It's still under construction so I'll repost it when it's complete.


2. Seriously contemplating going back to school in the fall, for a pharmacy assistant (or tech) course. I have a friend who's of a similar mind so I need to chat with her about what she's pondering. But the plan is to begin in September.


3. See #2 ;) also my sister-in-law's wedding and some music festival attendance, since more major travel might be out of reach because of hubby's work schedule.


4. All things Drumpf... hopefully that's sufficiently explanatory.


5. I want to try a Crossfit class! It's actually going to be one of my 17 in 17. Also, eating low-carb-high-fat. Working towards it but PCOS makes me more of a sugar fiend.

Do you make New Year's resolutions?
No, they are too easily broken. Since it was the start of a new month I did start a Goodreads account.

Are you expecting any big life changes this year? (new job, buying a house, etc.) I had a new job thrust upon me last year, I am hoping to make the situation I am in better.

What are you most looking forward to this year? Starting over with a new year in general. Last year was like when you have a bad day and every little thing compounds to make it worse. Things are usually better the next day.

What are you least looking forward to this year? The inauguration, blech.

Is there anything you want to try this year that you haven't tried before? (could be a new food, new hobby, or anything.) Nothing that I can think of, but I'm going to open myself up to new experiences.
