[My friends and I gave each other an assignment a few weeks ago: the task of writing a letter to a-year-younger version of ourselves, on the verge of 2017. So, below is the letter I would write to the woman who was me on December 31st, 2017. She sat at her computer, much like I do now, planning and plotting for the year to come, and these are the words I would share with her.]
Happy New Year! Welp. You made it through 2016!
