A Year of Living Positively -Day 19

It's 2014. Thinking over what I wrote yesterday, I'd like to add one more segment to the list of my accomplishments in 2013. 

Let me talk a little about voluntarism. I rebuilt the teachers' support network somewhat. I helped a few teachers by answering inquiries. I attended all the meetings of the solidarity group in Seoul and thereby built the relationships with those activists and gained understanding. I was thus able to express solidarity and help educate about the context of conflicts. In the summer, I talked to Canadians about the situation in South Korea and created a solidarity network out of those connections and the teachers' network by the fall. I read a lot of articles about the affairs of the world as perceived by the alternative media. I donated to panhandlers and worthwhile charities.

What are my resolutions, you ask? Obviously, one project is to live positively and write about it every day. As I hinted at in telling you about my health status, I must get back to my regimen of low fat, low sodium and low sugar food, and watch the calories while getting regular exercise. I know I should go to a gym a few times a week, but it's an awkward moment considering that my office and my residence is moving this winter. I'm not sure how long the campus gym will be in operation, so I should sign up for short term membership in a gym near my present home. Another goal is about finances, and it is the same as last year's: that is to continue to save money for retirement, and I'm setting myself a specific figure. Regarding volunteer work, other goals are to continue the activism, and fulfill my responsibilities as an officer of Korea TESOL. With respect to academic work, I just want to coast along, and keep scouting for different work in the future.

As to how to spend this holiday, January 1st, I'm joining some hikers outside the city limits to enjoy more vigorous climbing and beautiful scenery in fresh air. After the hike, we plan to enjoy a special vegetarian meal together.
