    Hey! Haven’t done anything from your bucket in 2013?! What are you waiting for lazy boy! 😉

  • Thanks for keeping me accountable, Hipp! Relocating at the end of 2012 took a lot of me, but I’m back on track!

    Just updated the bucket list: learning to code has successfully been accomplished. Onward!
