And in the last 3 months my life has done a 180 yet again. But my dedication to books and my New Years Resolution remained steadfast. I only read 12 books, so I didn’t maintain my one book a week, but I did start a new hobby with gusto and read many a thick sewing book and followed along with tutorials. So a new skill counts for something right?

Most people have similar notions about what they want to do in Australia. Visit Sydney Harbour, Dive the Great Barrier Reef, and Roadtrip through the Outback.

I always say I love to budget. But I wouldn’t call myslf cheap. I spend where I want for some luxuries and skimp on other things I see as unnecessary or a rip-off. I always eat fairly well while trying to find a discount and limit activities according to what I can afford. But what about when budgeting goes too far?
As I sat on my top bunk in my 6 bed dorm, staring at the television playing Fringe with my 5 roommates, I couldn’t help but feel relieved. As the rain continued to thrash the window and the wind continued its test of elasticity of the palm tree trunks outside, I knew that it would end soon. I knew that the last two days I spent harried and frazzled in the midst of the flooding evacuation were but another story to tell; No longer a threat.
Another 3 months passed, another quarter of my 52-Week Book Challenge completed. This is one New Years Resolution that I’ve kept. Winning.
