What could be more inspiring than posting a list of New Year’s resolutions and plans for 2019 today? But I chose not to. I’d rather keep things for myself (and less social media for personal use) and build good habits at work and writing.
It’s Thursday morning, and it’s almost 3 AM. I’m back with my nocturnal mode when it comes to working and writing. Time flies fast and it’s already May. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to update my entries here. Let’s just say, “Life happened.”
