A fresh start. A clean slate. A time of review and renewal. That’s what a new year is to me, and that’s why I love it so much! Of course, I can’t start the new year without heading to my hometown to see the Oriental Dragon Run. Although the spectacle lasts less than 20 minutes, I wouldn’t miss it!Continue reading “Fanatic News Flash – January 2020”
Resolutions, goals, intentions. Whatever you like to call it, it’s not only a new year, it’s a new decade! There’s a lot wrapped up in my little four-letter word for the year!

My favorite holiday is finally here! No, it’s not because I will be sipping champagne and dancing until 2a.m. New Year’s Eve is much different for me and always has been. Our evening consists of celebrating my dad’s birthday (who will be 80) with soup, grilled cheese, and my mom’s homemade cake. We will then head to my hometown in Oriental, and run with the dragon. It lasts about 20 minutes, but it has been a tradition of mine since I was very young – and it’s probably the closest thing that I’ll ever get to Times Square.
At the start of every new year, people everywhere make resolutions. Losing weight, being more organized, and changing habits are probably the most popular. While I would like to do all those things, the one thing closest to my heart is homeschooling. Finding ways to improve, finding new things to implement, most of all – finding how to balance homeschooling with the rest of my life. Please tell me I’m not the only one struggling with balance!
