new social media profile picture I made for 2019... this is one of my favorite pictures of myself. I took this selfie right after purchasing my new MacBook Pro, so that's why I'm glowing with happiness.

I found the list I made of my favorite things about 2019, and even though January is over I'd like to publish it now while the year is still young. None of it is in any particular order, and plenty of these things are things that I do all the time anyways. But it's nice to remember the things we did that we enjoyed... they're more likely to turn into habits that way.
