Three Things Thursday 1.7.16

Three Things Thursday 1.7.16 

Wow, where has time gone? It is 2016! Happy and healthy new year to you and your loved ones!
I was off for about ten days for winter break, I just kicked back and relaxed. I had a lengthy to-do list to complete, but I really didn't get much done and I am fine with that. Trying to go 

Today's Three Things Thursday is dedicated to what is on my mind...

1: I have been thinking about my word for 2016, I couldn't come up with it, until I realized the word I want is focus. In a world with a millions things (or students) coming up to me, I tend to multi task and I end up with giving less then my 100%. This year, I vow to take time out and focus on myself. To focus on becoming a better listener. To focus on putting away my cell phone when I am with friends and family.

2: India. My goal is to go to India, every two years and I am due to a visit this year. My visa to India expired last year. I have been debating between the OCI card and the ten year visa. After numerous chats with family and friends, I have decided to apply for a ten year visa. Personally, the deciding factor was that the OCI card requires carrying an additional passbook when traveling to India. Two years ago, I was a tourist in India. 

3: I have always enjoyed reading, since I was a child. In recently years, leisure reading has been placed on the back burner, with going to graduate school and working as a teacher at the same time. I look forward to dedicating some time to myself and to unwinding after a long day with a book. I would like to start with a book a month. I am also interested in joining a book club, a nice opportunity to keep me consistent with my goal and to meet new people! A win-win situation! I found this wonderful list of books that I am going to try to read in 2016! 

Do you have a word for 2016? Do you have any books you can recommend?
