#71 Learn to write my name in Japanese

Thanks to the wonder of the internet, you can learn to do just about anything. For the most part, a lot of that is free too! So, instead of using the traditional way of schlepping it to the library, I sit down one night to figure out how to write my name in Japanese. Why? Just because I guess. One of those curiosity things. Why not?

That's it! Miranda in Japanese. A quick web search brought up tons of translation sites. I picked the first one, but compared it to a couple more and they did look the same. Pretty cool huh, and best of all - pretty easy. Doesn't it kind of look like ESPN?

#71. Done.

January Wrap-up, On to February

This month was a little slow for me by way of challenges. Of course not all months will be ripping and roaring, so I am not worried. I have been so busy in the past month and now I have also started homeschooling my preschooler! Anyhoo, here is what happened this month and what I am looking forward to:

My January Goals

  • Buy something from Etsy (still deciding, so many things!)
  • Start a 365 day photo challenge (Started, but this proved rather difficult. I'll try next year)
  • Join a book club (First book starts this month!)

What I Have Planned For January:

  • Go a month without buying anything that isn't a necessity
  • Write a living will
  • Learn to write my name in Japanese

Thanks for reading, follow along with me will you?
