Now that we’ve all gotten those resolutions for the year off our chest and January is nearly gone, let’s talk about what comes next.
Like so many people out there, I am complicated. My hobbies are multi-faceted, and it can be a real challenge to prioritize accomplishments. I want to get so much out of this single life I have, how can I make my dreams into more of a reality?
