My Year in Review I: “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal”

NewYearCarson

2013 in Review Part I: Bright Shiny Objects (OR, “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal”) 2013 will go down – for me, at any rate – as the year my distraction by Bright, Shiny Objects reached Critical Mass. If the year were a short story, it’d be titled “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal.” If I were […]
