Resolutions 2019

This'll be the fourth year running that I post resolutions.

I didn't do a good job with last year's. I didn't find a way to incorporate conversational Spanish practice into my learning, and I didn't work on the novel twice a week. However, this year I have two possible leads for conversational practice, so even though I failed last year, I think I'll try again with that this year:

(1) Continue to practice Spanish every day, and find a way to work in conversational Spanish every week. Grace period of a month to get that up and running.

As for the novel, what I found helpful was what I did in November, slip-streaming along with the NaNo crew--namely, keeping a tally of words written each day. When I did that, I put much more effort into at least opening the document and turning attention to it. So this year the goal will be ...

(2) to open the document each day and to record words written. If I don't write anything, but I stare at it, musing at possibilities, that's still something (I'll record zero words but note that I opened the document). If I undo a bunch of words and tinker, that's still something too.

A third, less-important-to-me resolution is to continue with Duolingo Portuguese. Still, it's a resolution.

(3) Do Duolingo Portuguese each day

I didn't fulfill my resolution. It was a rather lofty goal, though.

I don't have one for this year.

To make amends with Ashley. When I made it, I accepted that it wasn't at at likely to happen.

Yeah, there's only so much you can do when it's something that involves another person :(

What is Duolingo Portugese? Meaning talking in English and Portugese at the same time>

That's a good guess, but actually "Duolingo" is a language-learning app/website, where you can learn any number of languages. By "Duolingo Portuguese," I mean Portuguese language-learning, via the Duolingo app. Here's a link: Duolingo, but you can get it for your phone too if you want! (It's free)

I did well on some of my goals, not so well on others. I like your writing goal, especially the bit about noting that you opened the document, even if you didn't do any actual writing. I've adjusted my long-ignored writing spreadsheet accordingly!

Glad the idea suits! I'm all for making goals that are challenging BUT ACHIEVABLE.
