2015: a year in lists.

I’m one of those people who forgets most things. I’m not sure why – maybe it was that concussion I got when I was 18. Maybe it’s because I’m an ENFP (squirrel?!!?)

Whatever the case may be, I try to write things down so I can look back and remember them later. Hence why I journal. Hence why I blog. Hence why I make lists.

Here are a few lists that signify 2015…
