Two thousand and eighteen! Can you actually believe it? I’m not sure if I feel like it came around quickly, or if it took forever, but, here it is! 2017 wasn’t my favourite year, not by a LONG shot, so I am more than happy to see the back of it.  With the new year comes all of the normal “New Year, New Me!” crap that we see, everywhere.
