Always forward, never backward. I know 2016 was rough for a lot of people, but it was one of my most personally rewarding years. I left a dead-end job and started a way better one. My friends joined me down in NOLA for some debauchery on my birthday. I met and (non-concurrently) dated some pretty cool people. And of course, I made my return to Europe and fulfilled a lifelong dream of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland. Closing out the year tonight with some good friends and good food. Always forward, never backward.
