2015 Annual Review

Since about 2009 or so, I’ve written down New Year’s resolutions in my Moleskine notebooks. I’d draw sketches and write down my aspirations for the upcoming year, such as financial goals, health and weight-loss goals, and so on and so forth.

The problem was that upon completing the list of dreams and aspirations, I would move on to the next page in the book and not look at them again until years later. Whoops.

I proceeded to do this for maybe… three years? Looking back through my notebook makes for some laughable reading. Many of the 2009 resolutions seem to magically reappear on the subsequent year’s list. I can’t imagine why.

Goals have a way of evaporating when left unattended.

2015 has been different.

The Lyrics That Kicked Off A New Lifestyle

This may seem a little out of left field, but music has always been a big part of my life. I’ve enjoyed playing piano since age eleven, singing in various a cappella groups in high school and college, producing everything from hip-hop to blues, and beyond.

A Forgotten Mic Stand For The Better

One of the most memorable experiences of my life was a time in my early 20’s when I was working as an audio technician with my friend Pete. We were the sound engineers for an NCAA gymnastics semi-finals tournament at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
