Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti
New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.

Re: What makes you happy?
I agree with you. And I will join the group that starts on 15 January with the motto "Thirty days without complaining". The intention is to be very positive for 30 days and not to worry about all kinds of small obscurities of others or about the weather or about waiting times and so much more. I want to see life as more positive without all its disagreeableness.

Re: Words and phrases that I had to look up in the dictionary before using them
@takafromtokyo Yes, the cars arrive at the front of the hotel. The reception or front desk is located in the lobby. A lobby is generally the first entrance room in a building - but not usually a house. When you enter a lobby, you usually find the reception, the tenant directory and the lifts (or elevators.)
An interesting development of the meaning of lobby is in the political sense. When people wanted to push their case to politicians, they would wait in the lobby of Parliament or Congress for the politicians to walk by so they could talk to them. Now, a "lobby group" is a group of people who attempt to influence politicians: the environmental lobby or the oil industry lobby. People who do this work are called lobbyists because they lobby politicians.
So, in less than 100 years, that word has taken on a whole new meaning, an extra noun (lobbyists) and a verb form.

Re: Guessing Game with Aladdin
I think Oscar is right, but I am going to guess Jordan, just to be different and because Aladdin put in a clue after Oscar's guess.
