So, it’s the second day of the new year, and I decided to renew some habits that I started last year. The first is to do my daily exercise of morning squats and evening planking. I’ve been inconsistent lately, but not too bad. Mariko and Bay said I should also do some stretching or yoga poses too, and I think that is a good idea so I might try to work that into my routine.

I’m also going to keep up with my daily blogging and my daily photos. These are things I’ve been doing for a couple years now and I don’t see a good reason why I should stop.

Lastly, I will renew my efforts to learn Japanese. Each night I write a bit of hiragana and katakana and I will start taking more notes on vocabulary and try to quit writing in romaji. Perhaps the photo above will be the last romaji?

I think these things are doable, considering my current schedule, and just doing little by little hasn’t been difficult in 2017.

Oh, and one more new thing for me will be to make a short 1-second video every day. At the end of the year, we’ll see how the completed movie turns out!

So, on to the habits that I will release this year. The first is my daily journal writing. I think that it became a little redundant since I write daily here in this blog. Next, I am going to stop playing video/mobile phone games so much. I won’t quit completely, but I feel like that is a huge time-sink that could be better spent reading, studying, or drawing.

Anyway, that’s my re-focusing for 2018.

I hope you had a nice Tuesday!
