Or How I Lost Myself a Bit
At the end of January 2015, I was downsized out of my job at the time because it was not a good 2014 for the company. It was a bit of a wake-up call. I hated that job. It drained part of my soul every single time I went in. I didn't want to talk about it with my friends or family because I just wanted to pretend that it didn't exist . . .

To Do: Add to Goodreads shelf.
After only just picking up several of the fantastic books that came out last year (Easy Go, The First Confessor, and The Luminaries among them), I've decided to look towards the coming year in the hopes that I don't wait until The Goodreads Choice Awards to catch up.

AKA The Systematic Rejection of Video Games I've Purchased
My name is Lindsey Saxton and I have a problem. Like many of my fellow PC gamers, I'm addicted to HumbleBundle and the seasonal Steam Sales. Before I started the Steam Library Challenge, I owned 209 videogames on Steam, and I'd only played 15 of them (~7%). Two months ago, I decided to change that by systematically playing every game . . .
Every year, there are new conferences that take place in Indianapolis. For example: last year brought us the Indiana Governor's Conference for Women, and the year before launched the first Verge PowderKeg. This year, there are more events than ever before that I'm excited about attending.
