Well, 2018 has come to a close. This year, I became an aunt to an extremely cute little guy, kept a sourdough starter alive, co-organized a panel discussion on reproductive health, rights and justice, and traveled to Japan, Vancouver, Ohio, Indiana and Utah for the first time. I’ve now lived twenty-five years on this Earth – that’s prime time for a quarter-life crisis, no? But while there were (many) moments of doubt and uncertainty, I think that on balance, I’m a better version of myself than I was on December 31st, 2017. In last year’s recap, I focused on my cooking, reading and writing – I didn’t publish any writing this year (boo!) so I’ll focus on the former two and throw in a little update on work while I’m at it.
