My One New Year's Resolution



New Year's is a great opportunity to hit refresh on your life and set some new goals and challenges for yourself. I don't really make resolutions for myself concerning health and fitness, because this is something I am constantly working on (on and off! some months better than others). Instead I like to set myself a resolution to learn something new. And this year I'd like to try and learn American Sign Language. 

I have a deep love of languages and they seem to stick in my brain easily. I've been fascinated with sign language for years but recently I've watched some movies with sign language in them and realized how easily I was picking up and remembering the signs, even weeks later. I think it would be a huge asset to be able to communicate non-verbally and would open up communication with a whole group of people I haven't had the opportunity to talk to before. I'm a very visual person so I think I can teach myself - I've been starting with little video lessons from this great website: http://www.lifeprint.com/ (Here's a very useful First 100 Signs video)

Wish me luck on this, and if you have any tips please let me know!
What are you resolutions for 2017? Are you learning anything new? Please tell me in the comments!
