Remember when everyone thought 2016 was going to be their year? Ya… you don’t see anyone saying that about 2017. Guess we all learned our lesson. I thought I would have been a published author by now. I mean I quit my job to pursue writing full time. So recap: In 12 months, I headed in the direction of becoming a published author. I also considered downloading a writing app or software like Ulysses to be a “pro author” but haven’t just because I can’t figure out why people hate on Microsoft Word. I definitely didn’t think we would walk away with Trump as our el presidente. But that’s 2016 for you in a wrap.
That plus my growing family with more weddings and more babies, my stray bae addition, all my foreign travels to Costa Rica and Dubai and Arizona (counts as foreign), my “accident” which I don’t know why it’s in quotes since it really happened, and just all the memories that were created in ’16,
So, ya, 2016 wasn’t all bad. In fact, it was a great year but I guess maybe I should be more realistic with my resolutions this go around… or better yet be vague AF and then **HOPEFULLY** things will be different next time around. Perfect. So 2017:
LET MY FIVE YEAR PLAN DRIVE ME: Say no more to be able to write more, blog more, Instagram more, and make vlogs (or, er, start making vlogs. Tomato, tomato.) Mostly just write and get somewhere with this book thing.
TRY NEW THINGS: Say yes more to sleep less, be adventurous and do things like learn how to salsa dance, explore other cultures, keep traveling, eat at every single new restaurant, paint my wall, try things that scare the living hell out of me and do things that make me happier.
STARTING WITH ARTOPIA!!
This year I will be attending the 9th Annual Houston Press Artopia for an evening of culture, fashion, art, music and food. This one-night event features live music, fashion shows, dance and theatrical performances, along with galleries filled with works from local artists taking place on Saturday, January 28 from 8pm-11pm. But THATS NOT ALL! I want you to come with me!! I will be giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky BATPer to join me at Artopia.

2017, I can feel your fire already….
