Yes, I somehow failed to write anything between November and now, despite the fact that I can list off a good number of 'happenings'! While I'd like to sit back and reflect on those events and also on the year as a whole, I think that summarizing might actually be more helpful to me and … Continue reading Looking back at 2018
