Good morning! Welcome to 2018! Your brand new, exciting experience that welcomes you to being one Gregorian year closer to the inevitable heat death of the universe! Since 2013, my “New Years Resolution” has been a single word each and every year. I somewhat attempt to “base” my year’s experience and events on that single

It’s been three years since I’ve started this “journey”. Although I’ve been writing on websites for three years now, the amount of content I post has only just recently exploded.
