It’s been a whirlwind of a year. I’ve lost some friends and family. That seems to be a side effect of getting a little older. I remain resolved to live my life as best I can. Events this year have reinforced the need to try and live each day like it’s your last. I often fail at this but hope to try harder. What’s the plan for the next year? Work hard, study, try and reconnect with people that have drifted from my life, cook more, eat less. TRAVEL and do my best to live by the mantra “don’t be a dick” and when I fail at that apologise and hope for forgiveness. Happy new year!!
