2016 Year In Review

I’ve been so busy (or in some cases so distracted) that I haven’t had a chance to blog (which bothers me, since I have tons of stuff to talk about). Therefore, I’m posting this quick article to simply state that I have plans to keep adding more content (i.e., articles, photographs, maybe even video).

Shoutout

Real quick, I would like to shoutout to all of those amazing people in my life who’ve helped or encouraged me this past year. You’re amazing and I couldn’t thank you enough. Much gratitude to you for believing in me.

Current Events

Moreover, here is the basic rundown of things that have done this past year:
  • January: I moved out of my Downtown Denver apartment and began living in various places, learning how to be flexible for my upcoming future plans.
  • February: I’ve finally acquired my passport. A necessary task if I want to live out my dreams of traveling more.
  • March: I left my crappy digital agency job. I quit for numerous reasons that I can not share here but my heart goes out to those who are still there—stay strong.
  • April: I started dating this remarkable woman who is very beautiful, super intelligent, and excited to be living an amazing life too.
  • May: Worked a lot as a freelancer on a few short-term projects.
  • July: My girlfriend and I moved in together.
  • August: We’ve started planning and building out a new consulting business focused on Digital Marketing, Content Creation, Web Development, and Micro-niche stores. We also bought a vintage travel trailer (see picture below) with plans to live in it.
  • September: Discovered that our camper needed to be torn down to the frame and rebuilt so spent a lot of time and money on materials, tools, and this restoration project. Also, begin downsizing our stuff.
  • October: Ran an experiment doing some crazy gigs, such as being an event coordinator for a local bubble soccer company, a delivery driver for edible arrangements, and I was briefly a barista at Starbucks. I even, on occasion, drove for Über or rented out my car on Turo.
  • November: Moved out of our rented house in Denver, packed up our not-yet-complete travel trailer and headed toward Longmont, Colorado to spend time with family and build out the walls and roof of our future home.
  • December: Put the new siding on the camper, got rid of my awesome car, a 2010 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 (see picture below), packed up the trailer and moved to Tyler, TX to spend time with more family and to get some assistance on the trailer. Oh and take a break for Christmas and New Years.
