How I’ve Changed (and What I’ve Learned) in 2014

This year has gone by so fast, but looking back I am amazed by how much I have changed. This year alone, my life has included:

  • Learning how to cook and eat a more balanced and healthy diet
  • Taking care of my mental health as well as my physical health (i.e. relaxation, exercise, etc.)
  • Adopting better cleaning habits and learning how to take care of my Japanese apartment (aka tatami and gas stovetops)
  • Adapting a skincare routine
  • Learning new makeup and fashion styles that make me feel confident
  • Becoming a graduate student and maintaining a 4.0
  • Communicating more effectively by first understanding my own feelings
  • Incorporating reading and writing more often and making them daily habits
  • Entering a relationship with someone who is older than me, doesn’t share my mother tongue, grew up in a different country, and who lives far away (while learning how to better communicate and support each other)
  • Studying Korean (after a four year hiatus) and using it daily
  • Taking up Kyudo (traditional Japanese archery) and going to competitions and testing for a new rank
  • Embracing my adventurous side by doing things that scare me, such as going scuba diving
  • Finding a reliable dentist, chiropractor, doctor, and bike repairman
  • Gaining confidence as a teacher and learning something new everyday with my students
  • Trying for gratitude and positivity every day

And so many other things, but I thought it would be nice to write all these things down to look back on later in life. I also want to start a jar of good things or major events that happen in 2015. You may have seen the idea floating around the internet lately. I am excited for Christmas break so I can finally relax, but next year is going to be another exciting one for sure.

What are you grateful for and how has your life changed this year?
