Happy Sunday, America!
As we get ready to bid farewell to 2013, the time has come to look ahead to the new year and, by extension, our new year’s resolutions. I do not set any resolutions but expectations instead. Expectations are things that I should do without holding myself to any specific deadlines and tactics that I may not be able to fully achieve as planned. I will list my set of expectations for 2014 on Wednesday.
For the final time in 2013, let’s take a look at this week’s #Read3 and what I can expect for the week ahead.
- Reflections and Expectations: Hugs – This week, I looked back on the month that was and preview what I can expect for the first month of 2014. It’s been an interesting month and even more so next month.
- The Power of Paying It Forward – Jessica Lawlor extols the virtues of “paying it forward” — doing something good for others, especially when it is apparent that they need it.
- Most Americans Don’t Realize Incandescent Light Bulbs Are About to Disappear – The Atlantic Cities highlights how incandescent light bulbs will be phased out beginning Wednesday yet few Americans are aware of it. It’s a step in the right direction toward greater use of energy-efficient lightbulbs such as compact fluorescent light bulbs. Now you know.
- BONUS: Whatever, I’ll Start My Own Book of World Records! – Not an article or a blog post. I just like this so much because it’s that much funny.
- New Year’s Eve – I will be spending this New Year’s Eve with my railfan friends in Fullerton. It’s also only the second time I have spent this occasion outside of where I live. I still miss Dick Clark…
Happy (early) New Year, America! See you on the other side.
