Seeing as we’re just over halfway through the year already (seriously, where has this year gone?!), I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the list of goals I posted at the beginning of the year, and give you an update on the progress (or lack thereof, as I’m pretty sure a few of the goals I had were only there so I could have at least 10 things to post).
