Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa!
Happy New Year!
Well, this is the first Monday back from the holidays (boooooo!). I hope that everyone had a nice break! Mine was not nearly long enough – but that’s the sad truth of a developer who has very little vacation time.
Anyway, did you miss me?! (Sorry. I may have watched Sherlock this weekend. Ehem.)
For those of you who may not have received it via my social media accounts, here’s my Merry Christmas illustration:

I also did a little one for New Year’s Eve – because, frankly, the only way to celebrate the END OF 2016 was to drink lots of
alcohol fizzy drinks!
Now, it being a new year and all, how about some resolutions? January comes every year, and every year I like to think of it as a mini reset button on my life. Not to say that the year before never happened — but it’s a chance for me to stop and think about things I’d like to change and better myself. Many people hate new year’s resolutions, and I totally get it. But, I always like to think of things I could improve on from the previous year. Here are my top five:
- Be more present.
- Stress less.
- Exercise and meditate daily!
- Focus on the little things.
- Show gratitude.
Not too bad, eh? Definitely things worth striving for, in my opinion.
I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited to see what 2017 has in store. Be on the look out this week for some news — both here and on my social media (if you don’t follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and/or Facebook, the links are to the left!).
Lots of love to you all!
