2017 New Year’s Resolutions

January 3rd, 2017

I just re-read my 2016 resolutions and I have to say, I think I did a good job of trying to stick to them (even though it’s probably not good that I just now re-read them). I definitely read more, wrote more (although I may not have much to show for that) and traveled more. Now, …
