I’m also going to set a goal of writing at least 2 blog posts this year. I realized I’ve had a blog since my freshman year of college (hello, xanga!) and it’s pretty swell to see time documented in this visual way. Here’s to 2015…which has already started off with a bang. But that’s a post for next month!
