not gonna lie,
i didn't do great.
which is crazy.
because i am great at making
and completing to do lists.
but i guess it's easier to make a
daily to do list
than a whole year to do list.
so how did i fare?
did i run a marathon?
and i think i may have legit asthma
(rather than the exercise induced nonsense
i was diagnosed with in high school.)
did i climb a v4 in mexico or a v6 in the us?
i'm barely climbing v0s.
did i read 52 books?
hell yeah i did;
did i take at least 6 trips?
i went to:
tabasco and chiapas
nyc + dc
new york city
did i go to 8 new states and 5 new countries?
but i did live in mexico
for almost 6 months.
and i went to 6 mexican states:
estado de mexico
baja california sur
did i write 150 blog posts?
i wrote 169.
so according to the list,
this year wasn't totally unsuccessful
but it wasn't hugely successful either.
except that it kind of was.
i mean, check out all of
the super cool stuff i did this year:
