Hello, 2018

I’m really no different than anyone else when it comes to having a, well, not-so-great track record when it comes to sticking to New Years Resolutions.

My 2017 Goals

So it's January, and of course, that means it's resolution time. I've spent a lot of time these last two weeks really putting thought into what this year's goals should be, because I feel like I'm very much at a crossroads of sorts.

New Year, New Goals

This year I've decided that instead of making general resolutions, I'm going to try to set slightly more specific goals. While I had a moderate amount of success with some of my plans from last year, the ones that I failed the most at were the ones that could have easily been made more specific… Continue reading New Year, New Goals

HAPPY 2015!!!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a happy and fun-filled holiday season - the Christmas/New Year's season is by far one of my busiest, so I'm still playing catch-up a bit here. I've got a couple New Year's related posts on the docket for the next week, but in general am still cleaning stuff… Continue reading HAPPY 2015!!!
