First of all, I want to say “Félicitations” to Linda, the creator of these wonderful prompts which inspire so many, on the occasion of her blog anniversary! I can’t believe that JusJoJan is nearly over. This is the next to the last one! And I think I really did them all, even if some were a smidge late. So, is 2016 shaping up to be a good year? I have to say yes.
Even though the world is full of terrorists and crazy people and my country has questionable Presidential candidates, I am going to say yes. Looking back on the first month, is it exactly what I wanted from 2016? Well, no, not exactly. I had some things I wanted to get done which I didn’t do. But I still have tomorrow! And if I don’t have a sparkling-clean house completely freed of all extra “stuff” by tomorrow? It’s going to be ok. If I haven’t managed my time the way I should have done and those extra ten pounds are still clinging to my hips? It’s still going to be ok. I have exciting plans for 2016. I accept that many if not most of them will not pan out the way I think they will, but I am having fun making these plans. And borrowing from yesterday’s JusJoJan word, I think that serendipity may grace 2016. Why not? On ne sait jamais.
I mentioned “an/année” back at the beginning of the month — My prof gave us a list of nice vocabulary and ways to express one’s best wishes for the new year, and one of them was really nice, and it uses both words. I love that there are such lovely subtleties in the French language. I’m forever trying to understand them, but it’s totally worth it. I found the text for it here at this site (click) after doing a quick search.
