2017: Time To Smash Some Goals!


The end of 2016 is rapidly approaching, and the "New Year, New Me" memes will soon flood our social media walls. This new year will not bring a "new" me, but a more improved me. Though I will continue to be the same asshole I always am.

2017 signifies a clean slate, especially after a disastrous 2016. I don't know what this year has brought for most of you, but I know my tribe is ready to purge ourselves from this year. We have endured some hard and stressful times, such as the election, the water crisis in Flint, and the standoff at Standing Rock. These national events make us we question who we are and what we stand for.

On a personal level, I have changed jobs 4 times this year in search of the right path with the right company. I found strength in ending an emotionally-damaging, narcissistic relationship. I have lost friends and made new ones. I can't say this whole year has been awful, but I am ready for the new year.

I will not make my normal resolutions that I fail to accomplish. This next year is about setting goals and smashing the hell out of them - like my dream of owning a bar someday. I accepted a server position at a local bar and this puts me on the learning path to owning a bar someday. Also I accepted a nursing job, and it allows me some great opportunities and less stress. Finally, I will finish my degree in business next year. I feel that I am killing it in life right now. I want to end this year with a bang, rid myself of the negativity from 2016, and start 2017 with fireworks.

I am hopeful for the future and that everyone makes 2017 their best year yet! Let's roll in like the bosses we are and make shit happen!
