I don’t know if it’s the whole getting older thing — but I feel like I blinked and 2014 is coming to an end in a few hours. I started doing a yearly bucket list in 2013, and I must admit I didn’t do as well in 2014. I feel like I did better than… Read More Where did the year go?
Happy New Year! Damn, it’s almost been a year since I updated my blog. I have no excuses. I didn’t even do a blog or two about conferences. That’s usually a staple. But, I’m back. 🙂 The last post talked about travel. I didn’t really do much of it. I need some stamps for my… Read More Oops!
