Good bye 2017, Hello 2018


Hello Readers,

The year of 2017 was mainly a transitional year where I moved from Washington State to California and started a new job, life and social circle. On a personal level, it was a positive year with little to no things to complain about and a lot to be grateful for. This year also taught me the importance of humility and appreciating the simple things in life.
