5 For 2017: How'd I Do?
1. I am getting that tattoo, damn it. Well, that didn't happen. I know exactly what I want to get and where I want to get it and I just have to make the appointment and do it. Guess what's rolling over to 2018? That's right... I am getting that tattoo, damn it. 2. I'm declaring this my Year of Books I did do a ton more reading than I had in years past this year... I haven't been reading exclusively from the list and I have taken some detours ( Lincoln In The Bardo, Hyperion, The Fall of Hyperion ) but I think I'm going to make it a goal to finish this list in 2018.
