Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019.
2019 is officially the Year of the Dissertation. The only goal/resolution for 2019 is to finish the damn PhD.
Last new thing of 2018 – eating an edible hibiscus ? flower. It had a raspberry flavor, but that was probably just what they added into the syrup.
Thanks Amazon for suggesting that I buy my own book. While it is awesome enough to own a few copies, I do have enough. So I guess that’s a hashtag fail on Amazon’s buying algorithm.
