A slightly delayed Happy New Year to you all and my apologies for being M.I.A. for the latter half of 2015!

Here’s a slight recap of my year:

I challenged myself to read 100 books in 2015.  Sadly, I only read 79 of the 100.  Since I have unrealistic views of how quickly I read, I figured that I could breeze through the last 21 books on the 6 flights that accompanied my holiday vacation.  Guess how many books I finished?  Did you guess NONE?  ZIP?  ZILCH?  ZERO?  Ding, Ding, Ding!  You are correct!  That did not stop me, however, from setting my 2016 reading challenge at 100 books 😉

Another exciting change for me is that I finally quit my second job at Gamestop.  I realized that the little bit of extra money I was pulling in was not worth the lack of free time I had.  Furthermore, we went through 5 different managers in a year span and it got to a point where the job stopped being fun.

I Kickstarted a ton of stuff in 2015 (mostly board games) and now those projects are starting to arrive at my doorstep.  The great news is that there should be some board game reviews coming your way!

I was also fortunate enough to do some traveling in 2015.  Christmas was spent in Berlin with my entire family.  The days following Christmas were spent in Amsterdam with my mom and my sister.  Then the three of us hopped a flight to Reykjavik and rung in the new year Icelandic style.

Overall, I would say that 2015 was a fantastic year and I am excited to see what 2016 has in store.  Here’s to wishing you all the best in the new year and in all the years to come!
