YIP 2015: The Other Stuff

As much as I’d like to be that guy who sets goals and powers through to the finish…I’m not that guy. I get distracted. I have too many interests and no control of when one or the other (or something new) might rear its beautiful head. So I’d like to think that I’ll be able [...]
