Sooo, I find myself in a bit of a predicament. I want to send 12 newsletters this year but this month I have nothing to say. I thought about doing a year in review or thankful edition but I kinda don’t have the energy to put together a ‘meaty’ letter. So what can I do to keep the train going and provide value? Yuck. ‘Provide value’.
I could talk about my plans for 2019 but I’ve found it better and less stressful to share things that have come into fruition vs. prematurely telling you about projects. I thought about dropping links to all the media I consumed this month but meh, I’m tired. So tired I don’t even want to proofread this letter.
Confession: I haven’t washed my hair in over 5 weeks. I’m enjoying one of the best flat irons of my life. Sigh. I haven’t been up to much. Just bumming it at home, listening to podcast and audio books, something something.

In preparation for my big Mexican study abroad adventure, I decided to get a Spanish tutor. Yeah, disregard the years I spent proclaiming that Spanish was not going to be a thing and that school administrators should stop trying to make Spanish happen. This year I needed to habla with the best of them if I wanted to embark on my quest to find caliente cabana boys.
