  • Resolutions 2015

    One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: ‘To rise above little things’. ― John Burroughs Read 52 books. Yeah, I know.

Guess this means selecting shorter books helped me hit the number easier. It also means I should get in another 3,000 pages before the end of the year […]
