#Read3 + The Week Ahead: Dec. 29, 2013

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.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

This Week

  • 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.
