January Happenings

If I made New Year Resolutions, I would be failing big time on one about keeping this more updated. But I don't (anymore), so ha!

2017 Highlights

I always like looking back on previous years and seeing the highlights. So, here we go, 2017.

Bests: Book: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi Movie: The Big Sick and Hidden Figures. Honorable mention: Coco Song: The entire Hamilton soundtrack.

Most surprising show: One Day at a Time (give it a watch!) Meal: So last year's meal was Rose's Luxury in August for my birthday.

Other notable things this year: 42 plane flights (and no lost luggage or cancellations!) 3 new countries (The Netherlands, The Bahamas, and Korea) 3 weddings 2 bachelorette parties 98 classes on ClassPass
10,000 torq points at Flywheel
Saw Hamilton for my birthday
