I’m glad February has finally begun. I’ve got another chance for a new start. January was a dark, cold month in which my bed constantly beckoned and tricked me into believing that, perhaps, humans were meant to hibernate after all. All in all, I had a difficult juggling work, abiding by my new year resolutions, and the fight to wake up every morning. I even lost track of the dates and got mixed up with days! The good news is that after just a month of that we’ve entered a season where one sweater is enough to get a person through the entire day. I feel much happier about waking up in the mornings and even excited about having to put in an effort to live a meaningful life.
I’ll be trying to read and blog more often. My next book is Thomas Hardy’s Return of the Native. To be honest I’m not very excited about it even though Thomas Hardy’s books promise deep psychological insight and are considered a major contribution to English literature. Actually, while I’m being honest I may as well tell you that I’m not too excited about reading most of the books on my list for 2012. Except, perhaps, for the books I’ve already read, some the abridged versions of. And that’s the problem. I don’t care for adventure in exploring new books and new writers. That’s why this year I’ll be trying hard to expand my taste in books. I can’t be re-reading books/writers I like over and over again. Neither can my favourite genre be only YA Fiction, though I’ll always have a soft spot for it.
I hope everyone else has been having better luck keeping to their new year resolutions and are half way to happy accomplishments!
