Goodbye 2016 Almost

At the dawn of this year, I wrote a blog welcoming 2016. Apparently 2016 did not appreciate this welcome because honestly it’s been kind of a bitch. But this is supposed to be a positive blog so I’m not going to dwell on that. The point is that as of yesterday, every expectation I had for […]
