Time for a look back at 2017. While it was a disaster for our country and for the world, it wasn’t so bad for me personally.

There were 400 blog posts in 2017. Pretty sure that is a record.
In 2017, I got to see Beale Street, Mount Rushmore, The Civil Rights Museum, and the Badlands. All places I’ve wanted to see for years.
In 2017, I got see Iowa State win a Big 12 Championship in Men’s Basketball and win a bowl game and watch Iowa State beat the #5 team in the country.
In 2017, I got to be President of the Methodist Men, serve on the Administrative Council for my Church and go on a Mission Trip with the Youth Group to Saint Paul.
In 2017, I attended birthday parties, birthday dinners, 4 weddings (I think), and too many funerals. Even though, there weren’t many.
In 2017, I went on vacations to Minnesota, Kansas, South Dakota, and Tennessee.
In 2017, I established a new tradition of The Union Street Movie Theater Movie Night.
In 2017, I didn’t spend enough time with friends and family.
In 2017, I watched too much television and read too few books.
This brings me to my goals for 2017:
1. I’m gonna step my game up and get what’s coming to me. (My standard goal.)
2. I’m going to read at least 20 books in 2018.
I don’t have any new photo projects for 2018. I’m not continuing the Selfie Project. My Instagram account is going to go 100% black and white in 2018. I will finish the Photo Journal Project.
These are the things that I will do in 2018.
