Exactly right now, one year ago today, you came into our lives.
I haven’t had a lot of time for free reading this month. That is to say I’ve done quite a bit of reading, but almost exclusively for my ECE degree. I say almost exclusively because not reading road signs makes driving a whole lot harder.
Side bar: only the first letter of books are capitalized in Swedish. I may have mentioned this before on the blog, but it really baffles me. Every time! So I need to bring it up again now.
I definitely recommend this book for any early educators, people curious about basic mathematical terms in Swedish, or just anyone looking for a good time.
Here we go! Last book of the month for 2016!
Neil Patrick Harris is one funny guy. One should probably deduce this purely by reading the title, I mean how awesomely hilarious is a Choose Your Own Autobiography book?! As I am want to do with funny funny people, I listened to the audiobook version of this work. Now, I never did see Doogie Howser, but after listening to the book I feel like I did. I did see all of the HIMYM episodes, so I knew going in that this book would be LEGENDARY.
After listening to the audio book, and chuckling quite often in public, I checked out the in print version in order to get all of NPH’s drink recipes (like: How I Wet Your Mother). WORTH IT! Definitely give this a read!
Last year I did a retrospective on the year that had recently passed, entitled Looking Back : 2015 Resolutions. I realized late in the year (right around December 31st) that I had failed to make any New Year’s resolutions for 2015. No worries though, because I reverse bucket listed my year instead. This year I thought I’d make a tradition of it and do the same thing again.
Reverse bucket listing works as such; taking time to reflect on the year passed write down all the things you’ve done that are particularly memorable, notworthy, or just plain awesome. Differing from a normal bucket list as all the things on this list are completed.
Though I still have one post to write from my 2015 reversed bucket list I’m plowing ahead to 2016. Here’s the list:
Yet again, I have not written about all of these wonderous events, so stay tuned! 2017 is going to bring more than a few new blog posts!
Merry Christmas to you and yours! Here in Sweden we had our celebration yesterday. Good food was eaten, toys were opened, and the merriness was abundant.
By this I mean I’m half way between being 25 and 30, and I would like to check in and see how I’m doing on my 30 before 30 list.
Ideally, I’d be half way through…
With only 6 things completed, and 4 items half way completed I’m more than a stone’s throw away from the halfway point on this list. That’s okay though, still two and a half years to go!
If you like mushrooms keep reading. Even if you don’t like mushrooms you should probably know this recipe anyway. Just in case. You never know. These portobello mushrooms are to die for, so it’s a good recipe to have in your arsenal.
Prior to this fated evening I had only ever grilled portobello mushrooms. Yes, I’m new here, despite this the recipe was easy to follow and resulted in delightfully scrumptious mushrooms. Find the original Eggton recipe/description here.
