Here we are. The beginning on 2020, a fresh start. I started off the year bringing build-a-blog into a 'workable' state. I am using the term 'workable' very loosely. I can post, I can generate the site and you can read it, if you choose to do so. I am looking to set expections for this blog as well as my 2020. Here we are at Operation 2020.
It is easy to ignore your own expections. If you are the only one watching and you fail - who cares. I would like to set goals that are attainable. I would like show the world that I can 'do this'. Why?
I would like to improve. I would like to get better at all aspects of my life. I want to learn. I enjoy gaining skills and being able to do things. My goals will be based on all the activites and dreams I wish to conquer. I like to share my thoughts and ideas. I hope that people reading this find them informative, useful, entertaining and just upright motivating.
I have nothing to lose by making this blog, if anything I have already succeeded in completing a project.
