2019: The Plan

Yeah yeah, I know: we’ve been here before.

I’ve said it before: I’m self aware, if nothing else.

So 2018 has been and is almost gone. Over the course of the past 365 days I’ve come to think of it as…a period of my life that I’ve been through.

Star Wars X-wing Miniatures Game. An occasional gamer’s thoughts
