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.

  1. Maybe, but it was a very weak blog post. I had this big long thing planned out. I was going to revisit the Proust Questionnaire and everything.

    Then I caught a cold and the lazies in Memphis and before I knew it, I was 2 days behind. So I threw this turd together.

  2. It, maybe, provides me with motivation to do a better Year in Review for 2018. But not to necessarily have a better 2018.

    When I was looking back at 2017, I realized that I’m not sure I read a single book. Yeah, thousands of magazines and newspapers and blogs. Not a single book. That I can remember. Although, I also can’t remember the exact number of weddings I attended either.
