What Can I Improve This Year?

Well hello there 2018! Ya’ll know I’m not a big fan of the idea of resolutions. I find them to be a fantastic set-up for failure. Especially when people start throwing around the concept of “New Year, New Me!” I hate that. When I first started this blog way back in 2015 I talked about
