2016 was one heck of a rollercoaster. From political elections to personal life events, the year was unpredictable. Yes, some parts were a dumpster fire, but some parts were incredibly rewarding. I did not foresee the winding path I took this year, and though I still feel nomadic, the journey has been worth it. I chased opportunities to Boston and back, and took my YouTube game to the next level. Here are some of my highlights from the year.

In looking back on my 2016 goals, finding the right job was the most important task, and it was the one I most fully achieved. The other goals assumed a stable living situation established by the first, but I wound up making several career moves, and physical moves, which took priority. So going into 2017, several of my goals are continuations of last year’s aspirations. Here's to a bright and bountiful 2017!
Think you can help me reach my goals?
Happy New Year!
