It’s that time of year again, where we tell ourselves that we’re going to make positive changes in our lives. Yup! We’ll actually use that gym membership that we keep buying into year after year. And we’re definitely going to take up that new hobby from three new year’s resolutions ago, which our friends still keep telling us is all the rage. Relax, this is a completely judgement-free zone and the only thing we’re here to tell you is that no matter what you end up doing with your 2019, just be sure to make the best of what’s left of 2018.
