Welcome to my half-baked New Year’s Resolution. I truthfully have zero expectations for this blog other that to give myself some piece of mind. I subtitled the blog “Nerd Lifestyle and the Need to be Heard” mostly to keep myself on task with the various projects I take on and then leave behind every day in my life. I spent 2016 losing myself in a new relationship, my best friend’s wedding, and the excitement of my job, leaving no room to nurture myself. This next is not going to be “My Year,” but I will make an effort to take care of myself better.
