Success!

While most of my recent updates have been about the beach house or more rarely - Portuguese - I have been making progress on another front as well - my 2018 New Year's Resolutions! No sense going into every single one, but here are the highlights so far this year:


  • As for my goal of blogging once a week - so far so good!
  • I've written about 15 pages towards my goal of 100 pages - and got another mini-article published, albeit anonymously so that one is mostly just for my own satisfaction.
  • I've had a great time so far celebrating holidays I haven't normally given much thought to - even a few not-exactly-holidays, like the Superbowl! I threw my first ever Superbowl party and while it was a bit of a tight fit in my tiny, tiny apartment I was thrilled to see so many of my friends in the same place for once. 
  • I've watched all but 4 of the top 50 films (and I'm knocking out another this week).
  • But the biggest progress of all is my first ever batch of Cinnamon Rolls! I was pleased to find out that even a non-baker like me could turn out a respectable batch - even without the aid of a mixer.  The only downside is that the event I made them for ended up being canceled so I was left with a tray of 24, deliciously-fattening rolls all to myself. Sigh.  Guess I'll have to take a few (dozen) for the team!  

What about you faithful reader? How are those resolutions going?
