Laurence's December 2017 Blog post!

Hi, Laurence here!

And so 2017 comes to a close!

It’s been a busy year, full of events and unexpected twists. I ended up being busier than ever, but I still travelled a little, worked on side projects and tried lots of new things! Overall, I’m pretty proud of myself.

I am staying in Japan for the holiday season this year and I have many plans for travelling, so be ready to read about it in January! For now, I’d like to talk more about what is coming in 2018.

One of my resolutions for 2018 is to enjoy my life in Japan as much as I can. I don’t know how much longer I will stay here, but I still have much to see. I’m often tired and sick, but I need to overcome these problems if I want to leave Japan without too many regrets. It’s very easy on days off to just stay home wearing pajamas all day, but I can do that in Canada too. I want to enjoy doing things I can only do and see things I can only see while I’m here.

In 2018, I also want to be more organized. This means a clean home, without clutter. It means to procrastinate less and to use my to-do lists more. This will help me enjoy Japan to the fullest.

Lastly, I need to try harder to seize opportunities. Life in Japan moves very much with the seasons, moreso than back home. Buying windows for tickets to any event are very small and if I don’t become more aware and informed of the time I have to do certain things, I will just end up missing out on them.

If I can keep up with these resolutions and have good self-discipline, surely 2018 will be amazing!


Do you have any resolutions for 2018? What do you want to change completely about yourself, if anything? What do you think you need to work on?

Let’s work hard to make 2018 a great year!
