New Year Resolutions II

January 6, 2012

Save more

After having Bananafish Bookstore, a real storefront, the whole family is really poor now. Our savings is so shameful. One important reason is as a girl I do not have the sense of financing. Spending money without plan is a bad habit since I was a child. We need to save more for little crying tomato ’cause he will go to kindergarden one year later. We need to save more for the store and for the publishing studio ’cause we have so much dreams about that. We need to save more for a stable life, for renting a bigger house (we still do not like to buy an apartment yet), for not moving so frequently.  So, i started opening an account for the family. Save money into this account every week! let’s see what we will have in the end of this year~

Read more

I read few books since I got pregnant! I feel guilty to be a bookstore owner. And most of books i read in 2011 are about design and techs and magazines and essays. I rarely read novels and philosophy books. But they are the core of reading. So in the year of 2012, I want to begin my journey of reading from them. Please recommend some to me if you see my resolutions, thank you! There will be no quantity limitations of reading. I do not like to count how many books one have read through a year or a month. So read when you have time, make the time full of value when you read, make the value plant in your heart when you behave.

Write more

During 2005-2009, I wrote a lot, mostly my diary and my mood. But i stopped writing blog since I got married and had baby…(why?) I admit that I am not good at writing beautiful words and essays. But I am a good story teller. I hold the confidence. You may wonder being a bookstore keeper, I must have a lot of stories to tell. It is true, but it is not important I think. Then write what? I want to write down my reading notes firstly. Start from being a student who is now learning how to write for the future. Start from translating fairy stories ’cause I still have a dream to be Fairy translator. Easy ways to begin writing more and accumulate my confidence of writing again my story! I will also make a record on this blog.

(To be continued…)
