Happy Monday! This marks the first agenda of the New Year. How did you fare last week returning to school and work? It was a rough one, right? Now that I’ve managed to put some of the holiday decorations away and take the tree down, I can finally start making plans for the month.
Try: One of my goals this year is to take an in-person calligraphy class. And it may just happen this month. Swell Anchor Studio on Long Island is offering a beginner calligraphy workshop and I have been toying with the idea of signing up. Since it’s local, I think I’m going to take it!
See: I never thought I would say this — but I’d actually like to see snow. Not a whole lot, but a little would be nice. And since it’s 30 degrees today, perhaps I’ll get my wish soon?
Go: My trip to Lake Placid, New York was temporarily put on hold last month due to weather related difficulties. First, it was too warm and the speed skating oval was closed. Then, two weeks later, it was too cold, with a high of 4 degrees and a low of -14. Sometimes you just can’t win! With any luck, the end of January will produce a few ideal days for the trip. Fingers crossed!
Do: More fitness classes! As part of my goal for the New Year, I want to make leading an active life a priority. Over the weekend, I made it to my first kickboxing class of 2016 — it felt great to get back to it. And last week I went to a Pure Barre class and glided on the ice for a skating session. This month I’d like to incorporate a few new classes into my repertoire, and maybe finally try aerial yoga.
What’s on your agenda this month?
