Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful 2012.
I don’t really have any resolutions this year except continuing to enjoy my many interests, and keep improving on some of them, such as knitting and running. Not having children allows you to be a child forever yourself, and I hope I never become one of those boring people that spend their lives working all the time and have no hobbies. If I ever start acting my age, I might as well give up!
I try and learn new things as they catch my interest and I suppose a small “goal” for 2012 rather than resolution is to learn some Icelandic. I know that unless I can be in an immersion situation I’m not going to get very far, but I’ll have fun talking to myself in the car while listening to the CDs. I can see it’s going to be challenging, as the words aren’t pronounced at all how a native English speaker would expect them to be.
I don’t really get excited by New Year’s Eve, but if you are at home at the right time today you can watch the fireworks in Reykjavík live from the webcam at this website:
